The Piaggio P.180 Avanti is an Italian executive transport aircraft with twin turboprop engines mounted in pusher configuration. It seats up to nine people in a pressurized cabin and may be flown by one or two pilots. The design is of three-surface configuration, having both a small forward wing and a conventional tailplane, as well as its main wing, with the main wing spars passing behind the passenger cabin area.
An improved Avanti II obtained European and U.S. certification in November 2005. Six months later, 70 planes had been ordered. The Avanti II featured uprated Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66B turboprop engines and flies about 18 km/h faster, with better fuel economy; and an all-new ""glass panel"" avionics suite from Rockwell Collins reduced cockpit clutter.
