Vulcanair: aircraft manufacturer
For many years now, Vulcanair has established itself as one of the best manufacturers in the global aviation industry.
But how did Vulcanair gain its reputation in the business aviation sector?
Let’s take a look at the history of Vulcanair
The aircraft manufacturer, Vulcanair was founded in 1996 in Italy and its first strategy was to buy all the assets, designs, brands and rights of Partenavia. Partenavia was founded in Naples in 1949. At the time, Partenavia was considered one of the pioneers of aviation. In fact, this Italian aircraft manufacturer has built planes that still leave their mark on the history of the aviation sector. Despite the excellence of its work and its knowledge of the aviation sector, the company disappeared around 1998. But Vulcanair did not stop there. The company continued to purchase the rights, tools and the famous SF600 range from Italian manufacturer Siai Marchetti. Siai Marchetti was a well-known Italian manufacturer during the 1920s and 1940s. Founded in Milan, this company had been very successful with its civil seaplanes. After these glory days, the company joined the Italian public aviation group Aermacchi. Vulcanair’s first strategy was to build up a solid base of knowledge and tools working with manufacturers already recognised worldwide. Partenavia and Siai Marchetti’s legacy is one of innovative and efficient tools, a highly functional organization and an excellent engineering team. This enabled Vulcanair to quickly provide a constant supply of aircraft, as well as continuous improvements. But above all, this enabled the company to establish itself as a major aircraft manufacturer at the cutting edge of technology, recognised worldwide.

Vulcanair’s specialized missions
The P68 OBSERVER’s mission
With its P68 OBSERVER, Vulcanair gives users the possibility to make private flights, air cab, or observation. The design of this aircraft allows pilots and passengers to have a clear view of all the surroundings. This feature allows it to be used for patrol and observation. This plane is similar in some ways to a helicopter, especially with its excellent visibility. However, the costs associated with helicopters are higher.
This aircraft is simply a reference. The first advantage is that it requires little maintenance and therefore requires low maintenance-related costs. It is also very durable due to its corrosion-resistant aluminium construction. It is an easy to handle, fast and very comfortable aircraft. Its design guarantees excellent flight times for passengers.
With this aircraft Vulcanair can perform several types of missions: control, patrol, observation, responding to emergencies, passenger transport, cargo transport.

It is based on the P68 model. It is a fast aircraft thanks to its retractable landing gear, which allows it to increase its range. It has a spacious cabin that can carry up to 9 passengers.
