Piaggio Aero (Chalet OE2) delivers at Farnborough Air Show the first P.180 Avanti II “Extended Range” to SR Jet, part of the Beijing based Sparkle Roll Investment Holdings Limited,
The SR Jet aircraft is the first Avanti aircraft able to fly for more than 1,720 Nm, thanks to the installation of a permanent additional tank – which replaces only half of a closet in the toilet and with no changes to the airframe – that allows the fuel capacity of the Piaggio Aero iconic aircraft to grow from 2,826 lb to 3,226 lb enabling a comfortable nonstop flight from Beijing to Hainan or Hanoi, Milan to Reykjavik and Samara, Abu Dhabi to Istanbul and Chennai.
Some Industry Insiders Say an Announcement Will Be Coming Soon
Business in Savannah reports that Gulfsteam president Larry Flynn (pictured in file photo) alluded to a new product announcement on a recent media flight in an interview with Flightglobal. Aboard a G550, Flynn said to a reporter “We know what we are going to do next, but we haven’t announced what we are going to do next.”
There have long been rumors of a project called “P42” … which even showed up on a LinkedIn profile of a flight control engineer for Parker Aerospace, which developed fly-by-wire technology for the G650, according to the paper.
Piaggio Aero Industries, the Company active in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance of civil/ ISR aircraft and aero engines, today unveiled at Farnborough International air show its first major contract to sell 50 Avanti EVO aircraft to Hong Kong based investment and advisory firm Bravia Capital Hong Kong.
The contract includes 10 firm orders and 40 options for Avanti EVO aircraft to be delivered starting from the first quarter of 2015.
Bravia is a global investment and advisory firm with a primary focus on transportation and logistics investments worldwide.

Its greater range, superior performances, reduced fuel costs, low noise footprint, state of the art safety systems, and the largest and most comfortable cabin in its segment make the EVO an immediately attractive aircraft that will appeal to individuals and businesses alike.
