In today's ecologically sensitive world the Piaggio Avanti II is set apart from its competitors with its ability to achieve a high level of performance combined with great comfort, unique style and low emission thanks to its unrivalled fuel efficiency. 

Also, the P.180 flexibility permits the aircraft to operate out of smaller peripheral airports with landing and take-off distances that are simply unachievable in a comparably sized jet. As a company we feel that the Italian brand of "Piaggio Aero” is recognised worldwide and is synonymous with high performance and exclusive style.
We trust that the synergy between the two companies will make the innovative P.180 Avanti II aircraft a successful product in both in the UK and Ireland". 

The Avanti II has ‘Jet’ performance enabling it to reach a certified altitude of 41,000ft and a maximum speed of 402 knots (at 31,000ft) with the fuel efficiency of a Turbo Prop that burns about 40 per cent less fuel than a similar size jet. While in flight the spacious cabin sets new standards in comfort, smoothness and extremely low ambient internal cabin noise levels for seven plus passengers to travel in unprecedented first class comfort. 

The full stand-up cabin is over six feet wide and five feet nine inches high which is considerably wider and taller than most of the competing business aircraft in this weight and price class.
