Dubai 13th of December 2009
Air Synapsis – the Dubai based business aviation development & consultancy business – has been appointed the official sales representative for the Piaggio P180 Avanti II in all of the GCC countries as well as Jordan and Lebanon.
"The increasing demand of the Middle East market for cost effective regional travel solutions opens a large opportunity to develop new business aviation services for which the P180 Avanti II is definitely the best fit, " said Karim Hijazi, Air Synapsis' Managing Director.
"Unlike the light and very light business jets heavily affected by the region's high temperatures the P180 Avanti II delivers outstanding performances in the most demanding conditions. The Avanti's large stand-up cabin and dramatically low operating costs places it far ahead its competitors as the most cost-effective solution available in the market" added Hijazi.
According to the Pocket Guide to Business Aircraft, the Avanti II feels like a jet with its spacious cabin and extremely low ambient internal cabin noise levels. The first class fully stand-up cabin is six feet wide (1.85m) and five feet nine inches high (1.75m) which is wider and taller than most of the competing business aircraft. It features the fully digital, automatic flight control and displays of the latest generation "Pro Line 21" avionics system.
The Italian-designed and built aircraft is certified for single pilot operation and seats up to nine passengers. Holder of numerous speed records, the P.180 Avanti II is capable of flying over 1,700 nautical miles at up to 402 kts. and cruises at altitudes up to 41,000 ft. The company is jointly owned by Ferrari, Abu Dhabi's Mubadala and India's Tata Group.
