Tecnam P-JET In development

The Tecnam P-Jet is an Italian light turbofan aircraft in development by Tecnam.

Design and development

The P-Jet, under development to be used as a light military trainer or reconnaissance aircraft, is a side-by-side single engine turbofan aircraft with retractable tricycle landing gear and a twin rudder arrangement

Design

Tecnam is exploring the idea of developing a single-engine turbofan for military training and other markets, the company announced this week. Named the “P Jet,” the concept would feature what the Italian aircraft maker calls a “podded” engine design atop the fuselage for maximum efficiency, safety and easy access. The design also includes two side-by-side seats, a 28-foot wingspan and a twin-tail vertical stabilizer. There’s also potential for a pressurized version.

Whether the P JET will make it to market remains to be seen. But Tecnam claims there are several reasons why the design is viable. “The remarkable progress in the development and reliability of thermic and mechanical efficiency now available in high bypass, two-spool turbofan engines, along with major advances in materials ensures that production of the ‘P JET’ is a feasible proposition,” Tecnam said.

Specifications

  • Crew: 2
  • Wingspan: 8.5 m (28 ft)
  • Powerplant: 1 × Podded turbofan
