Tecnam P92 Echo MkII Enters New Era

The sporty P92 Echo handles in a familiar fashion for Cessna 150 pilots. Tecnam/Monica Castellani VFR Aviation.

Change is afoot for the light sport aircraft class as the rules governing it—and its rough equivalents in the EU—adapt to fit the future. One change lies in the EU’s last EASA Basic Regulation for lightweight aircraft, which now allows for 600 kg “ultralight” or UL aircraft (akin to an LSA’s 1,320 lb limit) to certify under each country’s separate civil aviation authority. Germany is the first of the countries under EASA to declare itself part of this “opt-out” and implementing its own technical rules, under LTFUL 2018, and publish the regulations that allow companies to certify aircraft under these rules.

Tecnam announced last week that it had secured the certification of its P92 Echo MkII two-seat airplane under the new German rules, paving the way for use in that country as well as others who recognize the German certification. The MkII version of the P92 updates the original, with an increased cabin volume, wider seats, and better seat adjustment fore and aft. There’s an optional ballistic parachute, and Garmin G3X Touch flight deck with synthetic vision and ground proximity alerts.

According to the company, in non-European countries, the P92 MkII is available in the Ultralight, US Light Sport Aircraft and Experimental categories, whereas the certified version, the P92JS, is available as the European CS-VLA. With a maximum cruise speed of 115 ktas and a Rotax 912 ULS powerplant, the P92 Echo MkII shows well amongst LSAs of the class.

2020 Kia Forte GT

Get the manual. Three-word reviews don’t justify my job, but if you’re considering the 2020 Kia Forte GT, the manual can make the difference between enjoyment and aggravation. 

The 2020 Kia Forte GT is a sporty addition to the affordable compact sedan segment, which is diminishing as much as the manual transmission.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV aced crash tests and can be optioned with safety equipment that mitigates crashes, earning it a coveted Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. 

Refreshed for 2020, the luxury compact crossover SUV comes equipped with plenty of standard safety equipment, but the optional packages earned it the award. The standard automatic emergency braking pales in comparison to the stopping power of the system called “Active brake assist with cross-traffic function.” It’s part of the Driver Assistance 2 package, and it earned a “Superior” rating from the IIHS for its ability to avoid a crash entirely in the 12-mph test and to significantly reduce speed to lessen the impact with vehicles and pedestrians in the 25-mph test.
