The  P.180 Avanti II  is the only aircraft perfect engineered that maximum performance actually create maximum savings.
The P180 can be configured in two ways as an air ambulance; either with five medical crew and one stretcher, or three medical crew and two stretchers. For EMS purposes, a corporate version of the aircraft can be changed to an air ambulance in less than two hours, demonstrating the flexibility of the aircraft to offer more than one solution to a company. Typically, the P180 is equipped with medical equipment that includes one or two stretchers; an oxygen bottle with pressure regulator; a vacuum pump; a compressor with pressure accumulator and a power supply for the medical equipment.
The P.180 Avanti II   could be configurated in  the Flight Inspection version  to ensure in-flight monitoring of radio assistance for routes and airports in order to validate the accuracy of the indications provided and compliance with international rules.
The P.180 Avanti II could also be configurated for law enforcement and surveillance becoming an efficient platform for territorial multifunctional surveillance using a Forward Looking Infra Red (FLIR) television camera system.
