Piaggio P180 Avanti II Twin-Engine Turboprop Business Aircraft
Civilian Aircraft Around Las Vegas, Aircraft Around Las Vegas
 

Out and about in the desert and mountains around Las Vegas, a variety for flying machines may fly over your head and intrude upon your solitude. However, learning to identify aircraft in flight adds an odd twist to enjoying the outdoors while hiking and birding around Las Vegas -- how many species and varieties can you list?

The Avanti is an odd-looking twin propeller aircraft that has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.7, an operational ceiling 41,000 ft, and a range of more than 3,000 km -- pretty good for a fuel efficient twin prop. The planes are constructed by Piaggio Aero in Genova, Italy, and Piaggio America, Inc. based in West Palm Beach, Florida, completes, delivers, and supports the aircraft in North America. The aircraft are designed for executive transport. These twin-props are fairly noisy, a clue to their presence overhead.
