The P-Mentor, shown here at Tecnam’s AERO stand, aims to make IFR training more affordable 

Poland-based Bartolini Air announced at AERO 2022 that it has acquired the Tecnam P-Mentor for its Ryanair Mentored Programme. The school, which is a training partner of the Irish carrier, said that the choice of the P-Mentor for IFR training will allow it to ‘remain the most price-competitive training option in Europe’ for ab-initio students. The aircraft, burning only 14lit/h, was specifically designed to make IFR training more affordable.
