Ultra-quiet due to rear-mounted engines and extreme slant of windshield. Surprisingly spacious cabin. Significantly more fuel-efficient and quicker than competitors like the King Air B350.
What’s not to like?
Avanti II is the official aircraft of Scuderia Ferrari, and Piaggio’s Chairman is Piero Ferrari, son of Enzo. Turbo-prop configuration is fuel-efficient, and the entire Piaggio approach melds style and spaciousness with performance. SCM wants one; can we get 400 subscribers to go in on a time-share with us?
