The advantages of the Piaggio Avanti P 180


  • Comfort: Quiet and spacious for a small propeller plane.
  • Quiet: Operated by two pilots, this three-wing bi-turboprop can cover 2,200 km in surprisingly quiet and comfortable conditions for a propeller-driven aircraft.
  • Excellent value for money: It is a little more expensive to maintain (and therefore to rent) than a “classic” private jet. But it’s still 15% cheaper than a Citation CJ2, for example. With lower fuel consumption than jets (180 kg per hour per engine), it offers particularly pleasant flying conditions for its 6 passengers.
  • Spacious and elegant: This jet, recognizable by its moustache, is very popular in the business aviation market. It can hold a large amount of baggage in the hold and accommodate 7 passengers on board. Its spacious cabin is 1.75 meters high.

Commercial features of PIAGGIO AVANTI P 180


The incorporation of the front wing allowed for the main wing to be moved behind the cabin, therefore avoiding loss of space onboard due to the passage of the wing spar. The twin-turboprop engines are located on the centre wings on both sides of the aircraft.

The architecture of this private jet was designed in collaboration with NASA. Wind tunnel tests were carried out and Piaggio’s engineers were able to reduce the lift of the fuselage to 20% of the total.

It is undeniable that the main advantage of this business jet lies in the comfort and spaciousness of its cabin. Seven passengers are seated in comfortable leather seats and enjoy a smooth journey aboard one of the quietest aircraft in this category.

Indeed, the two propellers are located at the rear of the aircraft, so their noise does not disturb the passengers who can chat quietly among themselves or continue their business negotiations.

Faithful to its Italian roots, the interior is expertly designed to create a sleek living area. The silk carpeting matches the aircraft’s upholstery and the cabin is bathed in light through large windows.

The LED lighting guarantees soft light for night flights. Finally, the hold can hold up to 6 small suitcases or two large golf bags.
