Piaggio Adds a Pair to Its Delivery Totals

Piaggio began deliveries of its $7.4 million third generation P.180 Avanti EVO in April.

Piaggio Aerospace has delivered two of its new Avanti Evo turboprops to a pair of European customers, the company announced today.

Germany’s WinAir and an undisclosed buyer were the recipients of the third-generation, twin-pusher P.180, which offers extended range, better climb performance and fuel economy than its predecessors and a service ceiling of 41,000 feet.

Both airplanes were delivered with the full options package, including luxury interiors featuring Iacobucci HF seats covered with Poltrona Frau leather. According to previously released totals, the recent deliveries make a total of three for the year for Piaggio, which was purchased in full by the UAE's Mubadala Development in September.

“The third generation of our business aviation turboprop has established itself as one of the most efficient, environmentally friendly, elegant and comfortable aircraft in its category,” said Francescomaria Tuccillo, the Italian airframer’s COO. “Further contracts and deliveries are expected soon in North America, Middle East and Africa.”
