While the sale of the business complexes of Piaggio Aerospace is in its final stages, one more order arrives from the United States for the purchase of a new Avanti EVO. Signing the agreement, this time, is the US investment company Off The Chain Capital, based in Orlando, Florida and specializing in blockchain and digital assets.
The aircraft, which is expected to be delivered by the first quarter of 2022, will be fitted with an enlarged passenger entry door for better wheelchair access and arranged in a VIP configuration capable of accommodating up to six passengers.
“My first flight in a P.180 was about 15 years ago. After experiencing the large cabin, high speed, and fuel efficiency, I made it my goal to buy Piaggio”, commented Brian Estes, managing partner and CIO of Off The Chain Capital. “I am very excited to have finally made this dream come true.”
“This new sale agreement once again confirms the great value not only of the Avanti EVO, the company’s ‘flagship product’, but also of the entire Piaggio Aerospace“, said Vincenzo Nicastro, Piaggio Aerospace Extraordinary Commissioner. “In recent months – continued Nicastro – this is the third sale of an Avanti EVO in the United States: a dynamic market that confirms a strong interest in an aircraft which, now in its third version, has for 30 years been one of the symbols of ‘Made in Italy’ excellence in the world”.
With this new agreement, the company now has an order book which includes 14 new Avanti EVOs and the modernization of the on-board systems of 19 P.180 operated by the Italian Armed Forces.
