Each day, the team at Aircraft For Sale picks an airplane that catches our attention because it is unique, represents a good deal, or has other interesting qualities. You can read Aircraft For Sale: Today’s Top Pick at daily.

Today’s Top Pick is a 2023 Tecnam P2010 TDI.

When Tecnam’s P2010 arrived on the U.S market in 2015, many people regarded it as a modernized Cessna 172, and the two aircraft did share several characteristics in basic design, engineering, and performance. The Tecnam’s structure included more advanced materials, though, and its sleek, composite fuselage helped make the aircraft simply better looking overall. Some pilots were disappointed to find that it burned a bit more fuel than the 172.

Several years later, Tecnam installed a diesel engine that runs on jet-A. The new engine  boosts the airplane’s appeal over older high-wing competitors by cutting fuel burn and increasing range while maintaining the higher-speed performance of the previous avgas-fueled model. The P2010 for sale here is the diesel model and is nearly new with 60 hours on the airframe and Continental CD170 engine. The panel features Garmin G1000 NXi avionics with an integrated GFC700 autopilot and Flight Stream 510 database. The cabin also includes an Aerox oxygen system. 

If you are looking for a high-wing, four-seat personal aircraft that offers more speed and range flexibility than traditional legacy models, the Tecnam P2010 TDI could be the right fit. This sleek, like-new aircraft is available for $550,000 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Financial Group. For more information, email
