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. Three engines are available: the Rotax 582; the Rotax 912 and
the Limbach L2000. 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 now available as the
P92 Echo Classic. Next to the MLA (Micro Light Aeroplane), the P92 is available as a VLA (Very Light Aircraft).
The Tecnam P92 variants are in use as well as an Microlight touring and training aircraft. As VLA the P92 is also in
use as a replacement for the aging Cessna 152 and Piper Tomahawk training aircraft.
