Piaggio P180 Avanti

Aircraft For Flight Simulator 2004

The Avanti is a twin engine turboprop aircraft produced by Piaggio Aero. It's pressurized cabin seats up to nine passengers in luxury.

It combines the performance of a jet and the efficiency of a turbo prop with unmatched luxury and flair. Piaggio Aero intended the Avanti to be a turboprop that played in the same niche as light jets but with better economy and a larger cabin. With much of its construction is comprised of composite material, the unique shape was created to achieve a number of very challenging requirements.

The Piaggio Avanti
The Avanti is a twin-engine turboprop pusher aircraft designed, developed and certified with a three-wing lifting surface design, and very low drag shapes on every part of the aircraft. Even the engine nacelles are area ruled, for low drag.
 
The Avanti's engines are located mid-fuselage, giving the aircraft a high aspect ratio wing, Since the wings and engines are located behind the cabin passengers are assured of a smooth and quiet ride.

The arrangement of the wing surfaces allows all three to provide lift, as opposed to a conventional configuration. The fuselage itself contributes up to 20% of the aircraft's total lift.

The sleek design and configuration of the wing surfaces and engines of the Avanti ensures comfortable flying.
