Operated by two pilots, this twin-turboprop with three load-bearing wings makes it possible to cross 2200 km in conditions of surprising comfort and silence for a propeller-propelled plane.
A bit more expensive maintenance (and therefore the rental) than a private jet “classic” – 15% more expensive than a Quote CJ2 for example – and despite a fuel consumption lower than the jets (180kg per hour and per engine ), it offers particularly appreciated flight conditions for the 6 passengers and in particular a cabin very spacious and especially high of 1.75 meters.
Spacious and elegant, this jet, recognizable by its mustache, is very popular in the business aviation market. It can hold a lot of checked luggage and accommodate 7 passengers on board. To try it is to adopt it.
Pilot’s tip : Flying on the Avanti is a good experience in aeronautical innovation! I recommend it for Europe business flights like a Paris or Geneva – Rome or a Paris – Figari, but also for Public Relations operations because its look always surprises.
Private Jet Equivalent: Citation CJ2 , Learjet 60 . A private aircraft with exceptional performance produced by Alessandro Mazzoni, the Avanti P 180 rises to 12,500 meters and flies at 730 km / h at cruising speed … in turboprop! For the performances therefore, I place it in the family of the Private Jets and proposes it regularly in flight of business or even in Leisure because the experience on board is astonishing.
The front wing made it possible to move the main wing behind the cabin and avoid the loss of space on board due to the passage of the wing spar. The two turbo-prop 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 space of its cabin. The 7 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 Italian refinement, the interior decoration is designed to create a real cocoon of well-being. The silk carpeting matches the aircraft’s upholstery and the cabin is bathed in light through large windows.
The LED lighting guarantees a soft light for night flights. Finally, the hold can hold up to 6 small suitcases or two large golf bags.
