This leads us to the price, which is wrong too, for good reasons and bad. At $345,000 list, the P2010 is less expensive than a comparably equipped new Cessna Skyhawk, Piper Archer or Diamond DA40, its primary competitors. Still, would-be makers of next-generation four-seat singles, like the Flight Design C4 that will be certified under the revised Part 23 rules, are claiming their products will sell for considerably less. So while Tecnam might be running circles around "legacy" manufacturers on pricing right now, that advantage could be short-lived. After all, if buyers believe a $250,000 Flight Design C4 is coming in a few years, will they really pay almost $350,000 for a P2010 today?
