P2008 JC CS/ VLA

TECNAM P2008 JC CS/VLA

 

DESCRIPTION

Carbon fiber meets metal with innovation, style, and advanced technology to create a new aircraft line by Tecnam. The latest addition to the Tecnam line is the P2008 CS-VLA.
The Tecnam lineage is apparent the P2008JC CS-VLA which includes several exciting additions.

The P2008JC CS-LSA has metal wings and a metal stabilator. Tecnam chose to keep the metal wing and stabilator structures for strength, reliability, and ability to flex in flight providing a more comfortable ride. To produce the desired increase in cabin width and greater aerodynamic efficiency, Tecnam chose carbon fiber.

The decision to utilize both materials was for the optimization of aerodynamic qualities, flight characteristics, and reliability. The powerplant and associated cowlings are similar to all of the existing Tecnam line with few modifications. The P2008 CS-VLA has higher capacity than the existing line (55x2 lt - 14,5x2 GAL) and fuel tanks are installed in the wing box, behind the main spar. This is to preserve their integrity in case of a crash landing and to minimize fire potential. The instrument panel size is increased from other Tecnam models due to the increase in cabin width. It is modular in design and can accommodate the most complete instrumentation, analogical or digital type.

 

Construction:

  • The P2008 CS-LSA has metal wings and a metal stabilator.
  • Tecnam chose to keep the metal wing and stabilator structures for strength, reliability, and ability to flex in flight providing a more comfortable ride.
  • To produce the desired increase in cabin width and greater aerodynamic efficiency, Tecnam chose carbon fiber.
  • The decision to utilize both materials was for the optimization of aerodynamic qualities, flight characteristics, and reliability.
  • Tecnam was able to utilize the expertise from its aquisition of Tecnam Spain.
  • This addition allows Tecnam to make decisions to be based on design and structural integrity rather than purely the cost of production.
  • The wing is based on the well known NACA63A airfoil, and through partial tapering, it is brought close to the optimal lift distribution (elliptical).
  • The singleslot flaps extend along much of the wing span.
  • The Frise type aileron along with the taper design provides a high rate of roll. The all movable type (stabilator) horizontal tail, traditional on all Tecnam aircraft, allows excellent controllability and excellent “hands off” longitudinal stability.

Landing gear:

The main springleaf landing gear, including wheels, tires and fairings, are the same as all of the other non-retractable Tecnam models.
This design has withstood the test of time and extensive use in flight training environments.
The newly designed nose gear is free castering and consists of a tubular steel leg, connected to the lower engine mount attachments and is braced by a rubber shock absorber.
The steerable nose wheel is also available.

All of the landing gear is faired to minimize drag. Ground steering is by differential braking.

 

 

Engine and Propeller:

The powerplant and associated cowlings are similar to all of the existing Tecnam line with few modifications.
The P2008 CS-LSA has higher capacity than the existing line (55x2 lt - 14,5x2 GAL) and fuel tanks are installed in the wing box, behind the main spar.
This is to preserve their integrity in case of a crash landing and to minimize fire potential.
The instrument panel size is increased from other Tecnam models due to the increase in cabin width.
It is modular in design and can accommodate the most complete instrumentation, analogical or digital type.
