Piaggio Avanti II Performance
The Piaggio Avanti utilizes a set of Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66 turboprop engines with rear-facing propellers for increased resilience against turbulence. Those engines can power this craft up to 1,600 nautical miles on a single tank of fuel thanks to its enhanced fuel economy, as well.
The Piaggio Avanti also makes use of a unique body shape that consists of a specialized nose, wing, and tail. Combined, they allow for better stabilization, regardless of altitude. As a result, the Piaggio Avanti’s cabin experiences very minimal vibrations. At the same time, this construction style allows this craft to reach up to 400 mph in ideal conditions.
