As Piaggio Aero’s new Avanti II entered production last month, the company also announced it is increasing production to meet growing demand for the turboprop twin, but will it be enough?
Piaggio Aero Industries is preparing to launch a jet program before year-end. The Italian airframer is debating which of two designs to take into development, but early last month it said it first had to reach agreement with a strategic partner it needs to make the project a reality.
Avantair has chosen JSSI’s Tip-to-Tail airframe maintenance cost-guarantee program to cover its fleet of Piaggio Avantis. JSSI developed the Tip-to-Tail airframe hourly cost maintenance program to complement its engine programs. According to the company, OEM interest has driven the addition of new aircraft models–including the Piaggio Avanti and Avanti II–to the Tip-to-Tail program.
