Italian aircraft manufacturer Tecnam announced another customer for its P2002 JF basic training aircraft. The Greek air force has bought 12 for screening and primary training.

“We are so proud that after a tough evaluation, with many competitors, the Hellenic Air Force choose Tecnam,” said Walter Da Costa, global sales and marketing director for Tecnam.  Last year, the company noted that the Argentine air force made the same choice.

The aircraft will be operated by No. 360 Squadron at Dekhelia airbase, which is the home of the Hellenic Air Force’s air academy. Tecnam will also provide a Softek simulator and computer-based integrated training system, with ancillary support services.

The eight P2000 JFs in Argentina have logged more than 6,000 hours and 16,000 landings since they were delivered in 2016.
