The top speed of the Piaggio Avanti for sale is higher than any FAR 23 certified turboprop aircraft currently produced.

The Piaggio Avanti for sale from Orion Fly, Monte Urano, Italy, pictured just above, is powered by P&W Canada PT6-66B 950 shp engines. It has only 550 hours TT and has a metal gray paint scheme.

Twin pusher turboprops, a sleek fuselage, forward canards, and a high "T" tail enable the Piaggio Avanti for sale, designated the P180, to carry up to nine passengers at 1,600 mile distances at jet-like speeds.

Griffith Aviation, Tulsa, OK, has a Piaggio Avanti for sale. It has 1150 hrs. TT with 820 landings. In March of 2014 it had its A&B checks and 12 month inspection. Included is a Collins Proline 2 pkg. Color is a white paint scheme.

Due to its pusher prop propulsion, the Piaggio Avanti for sale does not sound like a typical turboprop. However the location of the propellers behind the passenger cabin keeps the interior noise level to an absolute minimum.

And all of this comfort comes with turboprop economy and efficiency. The Piaggio Avanti for sale is said to have 30 percent better fuel efficiency than a similar size turbojet aircraft.

A special laminar flow wing enables more engine power to go directly into pushing the aircraft forward through the air, rather than fighting drag producing friction.

There is a 2007 Piaggio Avanti for sale from Plane Smart in Addison, Tx. It has 1148 hours total time and is powered by P&W PT6A-66B engines producing 950 shp each. Included is a Collins Pro Line 21 pkg. Its paint scheme is white.

The fuselage produces lift in conjunction with the main wing, front canards, and horizontal stabilizer located on top of a T-tail. The canards are not movable and therefore do not contribute to the control of the Piaggio Avanti for sale. The combination of the lifting surfaces makes for an aerodynamically efficient aircraft.

The Piaggio Avanti, for sale by Simprop, was built by Kevin Morris. It has a 55 in. wingspan and is powered by two brushless motors. Kevin also installed retractable landing gear.  Kevin wrote us:  "Wanted to let you know that the original aircraft paint scheme came from a Canadian Piaggio Avanti that I photographed at Oakland airport. My Piaggio Avanti for sale, that is still flying, has a navigation light/ strobe system installed to add a bit more in the scale appearance."

We received the following email from Gabriele Tacchi:  "Attached are pictures (immediately above and below) of the Piaggio Avanti for sale made by Angelo Montagna, a great friend of mine and one of the most important RC builders in Italy. It was made from his own plan starting from another smaller plan.

The picture was taken during the first exhibition of Piaggio Avanti for sale, when it was flown for the second time.

First, Angelo made a Piaggio Avanti for sale a little smaller (30% less) in foam with two brushless motors to test the configuration. It was a success and that model is still operating. Then he proceeded with the 1/5 scale Piaggio Avanti for sale (2.70 meters, about 106 in. wingspan) you see in the photo. It is made completely from balsa and other woods, has operating gears with a sequencer for the two doors, two Moki 23 cc engines and working flaps. It was necessary to add brakes to the model because it lands fast and 14 kg (about 31 lbs.) is not easy to stop!

After the larger model's first flight we realized that the the test on the little foam Piaggio Avanti for sale had been very useful, as no trimming was necessary! The take off was perfect, with no correction of any kind. The model looks very realistic and also the sound of the two engines is good.

Piaggio and Ferrari have a lot in common in performance and style so we chose this look."

We want to thank Gabriel for the pictures and description of the beautiful Piaggio Avanti for sale.
