Piaggio Aerospace will participate in the 2018 edition of Farnborough International Airshow (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 mockup 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 center of excellence in Villanova d’Albenga, Liguria.  

FIA is the biennial aerospace and defense event that combines a trade exhibition with a public airshow. 1,500 exhibitors from more than fifty countries participate, attracting 100k government leaders and sector professionals, as many public visitors from around the world.  

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