“This is a significant milestone for our company – said the CEO Carlo Logli – as we start delivering the third generation of our Business Aviation turboprop, the only one in its market sector to be completely designed and produced in Italy. We expect 6 deliveries by the end of this year to American, Asian and European customers who have selected one of the most performing, environmentally friendly, elegant and comfortable aircraft available today in the international market”.

The delivered Avanti EVO has Extended Range and Full Optional configuration. It is characterised by the typical “Made in Italy” style. Its interiors comprise VIP seats developed by Iacobucci HF and covered with top class leather by Poltrona Frau. Its refined livery adopts the classical Avanti EVO colours (blue and white) adorned by an outlined red bird painted on the vertical stabilizer.

Third generation of P.180 Avanti, the Avanti EVO increases its performance, efficiency and comfort. Able to carry up to 7 passengers and capable of flying at a maximum cruise speed of 404 Kts, (745 km/h) with a range IFR of 1,770 nm (3,278 km), a climbing rate of 2,770 fpm (844 m/per minute) and can fly up to a service ceiling of 41,000 feet (12,500 m).
