  1. Italian Govt To Have Avantis Upgraded By Piaggio Aerospace
    The current Piaggio P180 Avanti aircraft operated by the Italian armed forces are in for upgrades to further bring them up to scratch. The upgrades will facilitate changes to the landing gear system, avionics, communications etc to in-service Avanti and Avanti II aircraft throughout the Italian Armed Forces. These aircraft will then be known as the P180 Avanti II Plus after the upgrade. Secondly, there is the Piaggio EVO Plus program that will happen. This has to do with facilitating the Armed Forces with new Avanti EVOs geared towards special mission applications.
  2. In fact, the current contract suggests that nine (9) Avanti EVOs will be built. The first five (5) are to be outfitted for Medevac/Ambulance as well as Transport capabilities. The other four (4) will be Special Missions aircraft for tasks like Flight Inspections. The first airframes are already in the final assembly line and the maiden flight of the first EVO Plus conformal airplane is expected at the beginning of 2022, with both civil and military certifications expected within the second half of 2022.
