It was just a few days ago that we shared with you the news about FlightSim Studio’s intention to bring the Tecnam P2006T MKII to Microsoft Flight Simulator. This excellent twin-engined trainer is currently in an advanced development stage and is aiming for a release next year.
At just about the time we learned about this aircraft from FlightSim Studio (FSS) we also came into contact with the new project from Eraldo Sammuri, the solo developer who brought us the freeware Tecnam P92 Echo that we featured last month. Eraldo is also making the P2006T for MSFS, but it’s not exactly the same model as the one from FlightSim Studio… it’s the original aircraft with steam gauges, rather than the MKII model being worked on by FSS with a glass cockpit!
After the somewhat simplistic affair with the P92, Eraldo is now looking to create a more sophisticated aircraft and is gathering support for that endeavor through a crowdfunding campaign. He aims to deliver an airplane “with no compromise about flight model and aerodynamic”s.
The developer is making the original version of the P2006T, which comes with a mostly analog cockpit with steam gauges. This version of the P2006T will be compatible with the Garmin GTN750 avionics packages that are already available in the market.
While Eraldo is trying to gather some funds to support the project and take it to new heights, the development of the aircraft is already well underway. The developer recently shared a few preview images and even a video showing the aircraft in flight in MSFS. Those who pledge their support to the project will have access to exclusive development builds and even to the beta testing process.
Those interested in the project can keep track of it through the Discord server created for that effect.
