The Cheltenham Festival is one of the busiest weeks of the year for Staverton. This Avanti is seen here back-tracking up Runway 27 to depart for Le Bourget on Gold Cup Day as arriving King Air G-BVMA turns off for the terminal. The rearward position of the PT-6As driving pusher propellers gives the Avanti the quietest cabin of any commercial aircraft. The fuselage comprises an aerofoil which contributes 20% of the aircraft’s lift.
