The first of two new Tecnam P2012 SMP aircraft acquired by Apex Flight Academy arrived at Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan on 16 November.
The nine- seat aircraft took off from Capua, Italy and arrived in Taipei after a 6,600nm voyage that required ten fuel stops.
The aircraft flew across Russia, Siberia and South Korea, at times encountering icing as temperatures dropped to -24Ã‚Â° Celsius. Ã‚Â
Apex will use the multi-mission capabilities of the P2012 for passenger transport, air ambulance missions, sightseeing tours, parachute jumping, and aerial photography.
The second P2012 is scheduled to join ApexÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fleet in 2022, with six additional options.Ã‚Â
