Piaggio Aerospace

Piaggio Aerospace is unique in its combination of design, manufacturing, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services for both aircraft and aircraft engines.

Piaggio Aerospace has become a world leader in turboprop, multi-mission aircraft design and manufacturing. Commitment to advanced technology and research, combined with innovative style and experience, has contributed to the company’s growth in both the aircraft and aircraft engine businesses.

Its main service center is located at Genoa International Airport, and the company has additional Italian operations in Finale Ligure and Naples, as well as a facility in West Palm Beach (Florida, USA).

Piaggio Aerospace aircraft are used as executive aircraft and as special mission aircraft. They are also operated by Italy’s armed forces and government agencies as well as by Italian emergency operations providing Medevac services. The company’s engine manufacturing capabilities include assembly and testing, as well as parts manufacturing and MRO. Notably, its P180 Avanti II aircraft is celebrated for its high performance, hi-tech avionics, and significantly reduced operating costs.

The P180 Avanti II is the world's fastest turboprop aircraft, offering outstanding performance. It has twin-turboprop Pratt & Whitney Canada engines that provide superior performance and fuel economy, delivering low operating costs and up to a 40% reduction in fuel consumed as compared to similar aircraft. This in turn also means a 40% reduction in carbon emissions, making the aircraft environmentally friendly with a true green focus. 

With a maximum speed of 402 kts /745 km/h and a range of more than 2,700 kilometers, the aircraft is well suited to both long and short distance trips. Due to its incredibly aerodynamic design and overall capability it is able to operate from shorter runways that many aircraft, both commercial and private, are unable to access.

Piaggio Aerospace is 100%-owned by Mubadala.
