Piaggio P.180AM Avanti

The Italian designed and built Piaggio P.180 Avanti is an unusual executive transport configured with a pair of pusher propellers resulting in less drag and better fuel efficiency, making it 100 knots faster than the equivalent King Air. The type Is operated by the Bulgarian, Italian and UAE air forces and the example appearing at RIAT 2022 will be from the RSV test wing of the Italian Air Force providing support to their three aircraft appearing in the flying display.
