Piaggio Aero P180 Avanti II

    With two fast and efficient turboprop engines, this Italian-built airplane burns 40 percent less fuel than similar-size jets, for lower operating costs. The P180 Avanti II is certified for single-pilot operation, which further enhances its cost efficiency. The distinctive design, with the main wing placed toward the tail and a small forward wing, provides stability. The engines face backward to direct noise away from the cabin, contributing to a serene travel environment. The cabin features high-tech options such as electrochromatic windows and broadband connectivity.
