By Editor 19-Jul-2018


Piaggio Aerospace is participating in the 2018 edition of Farnborough International Air show (FIA2018) staged in Hampshire, UK, at the Farnborough Airport between 16th and 22nd July 2018.  The Italian aircraft manufacturer will be present at the indoor display (HALL 1 1190) and will exhibit a full-scale mock-up of the P.1HH HammerHead and a P.180 Avanti EVO.

P.1HH is an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) and the only remotely piloted Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) program in Europe. Designed for aero, marine, and terrestrial surveillance and reconnaissance, it achieves an innovative combination of autonomy and speed. First deliveries are expected in 2018. The turboprop Avanti EVO is the latest generation of the P.180 Avanti. Its five blade scimitar propellers and three-lifting surface configurations work together to provide unique aerodynamic performance. Combining style, attention to details and technology, it offers superior climb performance and low emissions. The two aircraft are entirely designed, developed, and manufactured in Italy at the aerospace centre of excellence in Villanova d’Albenga, Liguria.

“Farnborough International Airshow represents the most valuable opportunity to promote our excellence in both defence and business aviation industries. We started a new transformational path, which is already boosting production line and orders”, says Renato Vaghi, Chief Executive Officer of Piaggio Aerospace, commented.

Piaggio Aerospace designs, develops, manufactures, and maintains aircraft, aircraft engines and structural components. In 2018, Piaggio Aerospace celebrates its first 100 years in aviation. A continuous commitment to research & development combined with innovative design and style have driven the development of Piaggio Aerospace as main player for executive turboprops, unmanned aerial systems and Special Mission aircraft on the global market.
