The Piaggio Avanti is an Italian twin-engine turboprop aircraft produced by Piaggio Aero. It seats up to nine passengers in a luxurious, pressurized cabin. The design uses a small forward wing and a main wing combination that places the wing spars outside of the passenger cabin area. The Piaggio is known for its fuel efficiency relative to small turbojets that fly in the same speed and altitude range. Interior noise is lower as well, thanks to the positioning of the propellers and engine exhausts.
