The Tecnam P 92 Echo Classic de Luxe is an all-metal, two-seat, single strut braced high-wing ultra-light aircraft built by Tecnam.
Costruzioni Aeronautiche TECNAM S.r.l., Capua, Italy, was founded in 1986 by the Brothers Luigi and Giovanni Pascale (formerly Partenavia).
Tecnam entered the MLA-market with the P.92 Echo. The Echo first flew in 1992. The P92 is deliverable completed or as an assembly-kit.
Over the years the Technam P92 Echo evolved to the P92 Echo Super, P92-JS Echo, P92 Echo Super de Luxe, P92 Eaglet, etc..
The original P92 Echo was modernised over the years and is available as the P92 Echo Classic. Next to the MLA (Micro Light Aeroplane),
the P92 is available as a VLA (Very Light Aircraft). In 2013, the P92 went to its sixth version with the P92 Echo Light, closing the loop
to the origin of the model. Beside the the trcycle-gear (nose-wheel) versions the TD (Tail Dragger) and Sea-Sky (float) versions are
available. Engine options are the Rotax912, 912S/ULS, 912iS, 914 and Lycoming O-233. The Tecnam P92 variants are in use as well as a
Microlight touring and training aircraft. As VLA the P92 is also in use as a replacement for the aging Cessna 152 and Piper Tomahawk
Tecnam P92 Echo s/n 288 is registered D-MTIS in Germany. On 13 May 2012, the D-MTIS was involved in a mid-air collision with a
Schempp-Hirth / Discus bT glider with a retractable sustainer motor. Both aircraft and glider were taken off from Sonderlandeplatz
Melle-Grönegau (EDXG). The glider got uncontrolable and the pilot of the glider decided to bail out: the pilot landed safely with
the parachute about 120 meters from where the glider crashed into trees. Despite the damage to the left wing of the Tecnam P92
Echo D-MTIS, the pilot was able to land the aircraft safely at Melle-Grönegau airfield. On 1 May 2019, Tecnam P92 Echo Classic
D-MTIS was seen at the home base Flugplatz Melle-Grönegau with 'www.flugschule-bielefeld.de' titles.
