The Piaggio P180 Avanti is a superb illustration of successful innovation. It combines elegant Italian design and craftsmanship with spacious, comfortable cabin and quietness that makes it the fastest aircraft in its class and outperforms the most popular turbojet aircraft available.
The Piaggio’s wings are its standout feature. These three sets offer three lifting surfaces and efficiently distribute flying stresses. The Piaggio’s structure weight, drag, and lift are reduced by the sets of smaller wings, despite having a smaller total wing area than is typically dispersed across a single wing. With the aid of NASA software, Piaggio Aero engineers created the P180’s structural layout, which they then refined through more than 4,600 hours of wind tunnel testing.
The Piaggio ascends to its flight level of 41,000 feet with a speed of up to 400 knots after taking off fast (in less than 3,000 feet). Its maximum range is far greater than the typical high-speed cruising distance of rival jets. It can fly a distance of more than 2,000 miles (1,800 nautical miles) from San Francisco to New York or Seattle to Orlando.
Two Pratt & Wʜɪᴛney Cᴀɴᴀᴅᴀ PT6A-66 engines power Piaggio’s six-blade turboprops. The Piaggio’s large wing loading allows for steady, high flight level control as well as smooth handling in turbulence.
