THE VSKYLABS Tecnam P2006T Project

Advanced Tecnam P2006T Aircraft Simulation

For X-Plane 11

The VSKYLABS Tecnam P2006T Project:

The development of the VSKYLABS Tecnam P2006T Project for X-Plane 11 was approved by 'Tecnam Aircraft' company. Although acknowledged by 'Tecnam Aircraft' , it is an independent VSKYLABS project which is not affiliated and/or endorsed with/by the 'Tecnam Aircraft' company.

Tecnam P2006T General Information

The Tecnam P2006T is an Italian high-winged, twin-engine all-metal light aircraft built by Costruzioni Aeronautiche Tecnam, which is based in Italy. The P2006T is the lightest twin-engine certified aircraft available, and is a four-seat aircraft with fully retractable landing gear and liquid-cooled Rotax 912 engines.

The P2006T first flew on the 13 September 2007 and was certified by EASA on the 5 June 2009. NASA's all electric X-57 Maxwell prototype aircraft is being developed using a P2006T as its basic structure.

Project Main Features

  • Advanced, detailed simulation of the Tecnam P2006T aircraft.

  • TWO MODELS INCLUDED- Analog and G1000 cockpits.

  • Full twin engine IFR trainer.

  • Highly defined flight model of the P2006T aircraft.

  • Built around the powerful, native X-Plane 11 'Experimental Flight Model' environment.

  • Fully functional VR (Virtual Reality) compatibility.

  • Built-in LR G1000 avionics.

  • Multi-Layer FMOD sound pack.

  • STMA Autoupdater included.

  • Easy-to-use paint-kit included.

  • The project is under constant development.

  • Highly responsive VSKYLABS support forums.

Additional Information

The VSKYLABS Tecnam P2006T is one of the VSKYLABS Flagship project for X-Plane flight simulator.

The standard avionics configurations for the real P2006T are including an analog IFR version, a Garmin G950/G1000 IFR version, and a 'P2006T MkII' option which is including the Garmin G1000 Nxi package.

The analog cockpit version of the VSKYLABS Tecnam P2006T is equipped with a dual GNS configuration (Garmin 530 + 430), which makes it fully capable of advanced flight planning and navigation. When it comes to its instrumentation, it is a fully capable IFR aircraft, with dual NAV and COMM systems and displays.

In the real aircraft, the Garmin G1000 Nxi package configuration is including a slightly modified side panels as well, having the CB panels shifted to the front panel, instead of the analog engine instrument gauges which are integrated into the display of the G1000 Nxi pack.

The VSKYLABS G1000 version is featuring the latest X-Plane 11 G1000 (which is including the integrated engine displays as in the G1000 Nxi), but in addition to the integrated engine parameters display in the G1000, it has also the analog engine instrument gauges as in the G950/G1000 non Nxi configuration.

The project is featuring a high level of accuracy in terms of aircraft and systems engineering. Due to some limitations, some systems are being simulated with simplified architecture.

Experimental/Additional Features

The VSKYLABS Tecnam P2006T Project (from v6.0) is including several enhancements, including engine damage due to excessive temperature and other operational limitations, landing gears tires blow-up when exceeding maximum load (on each tire, in separate).

In addition, (from version v6.0), the project is designed to be flown using X-Plane 11 Experimental flight model mode.

The project, (from version v6.0) is also making use of the STMA AutoUpdater plugin.
