This Aeronautica Militare Avanti, seen here arriving for RIAT, is one of 14 used by the service for VIP and other communications duties. The canard business aircraft is powered by two 850shp PT-6As driving pusher propellers which due to their position give it the quietest cabin of any comparable aircraft. The fuselage comprises an aerofoil which contributes 20% of the aircraft’s lift. Developed in collaboration with Learjet, it shares the ventral stall-recovery tail fins of that company’s products.
