Piaggio Avanti P180

Combination of style and performance

The Piaggio P180 Avanti is an Italian twin-engine turboprop aircraft produced by Piaggio Aero. The innovative design in a unique aerodynamic solution places the main wing behind and above the horizontal stabilizer, and has engines in a rear-facing configuration. It gives the aircraft possibility to slice through the air to achieve exceptionally high performance, which is comparable to the most popular light-jets in the industry. With shorter take-off / landing distances, fuel efficiency and 40% lower costs than jet aircraft of equivalent size, it makes it a very cost effective choice. It seats up to seven passengers in a pressurized, spacious and quiet cabin, with oversized baggage compartment that can accommodate even extra-large pieces of baggage.
