Tecnam P2002 Sierra "2012"

The Tecnam P2002 Sierra is a two-seat, low-wing, light aircraft designed and constructed by the Italian aircraft manufacturer Tecnam. Introduced during the early 2000s, the aircraft quickly became a staple of the company’s product lineup, comprising 70 percent of its available production capacity during some years.
Development of the Tecnam Sierra commenced during 2002. It was developed for compliance with both to the very light aircraft (VLA) regulations present in Europe as well as the light sport aircraft (LSA) regulations used in the United States. Under the rules laid up in either zone, the aircraft does not need to be provided with a recovery parachute. However, primarily as a consequence of its maximum weight (in a standard configuration) of 580 kg, the Sierra cannot be operated as a LSA in either Australia or Canada due to their lower weight limitation of 550 kg present on LSA

Design

Costruzioni Aeronautiche Tecnam is an Italian aeronautics manufacturer. It was founded in 1986.
he P present in its aircraft designations represents the Italian brothers Luigi Pascale and Giovanni Pascale, veteran aircraft designers and manufacturers who founded the company. Prior to creating Tecnam, they had been responsible for several other aviation-related activities, including the design and construction of the twin-engine Partenavia P.68. Their original intent in founding Tecnam was the production of aerospace parts on behalf of other manufacturers, which initially included American aerospace company Boeing and commuter airliner specialist ATR. When the Light Sport Aircraft market began to emerge, the brothers entered the field, first with the P92 Eaglet, which was well-received.
