That's great performing aircraft, but I'd have to look the other way until I boarded it.
Mmm, we have different appreciations of it then. The Piaggio is the only airplane so far that's made Daniela stop cold on a ramp and say, "Honey, what does one of those cost, and can we get one?"
I love its looks too, and really appreciate the three-lifting-surface design for its aerodynamic efficiency and elegance. 400 knots in a turboprop is nothing to sneeze at, either. The downsides are a $6.5M price, a very narrow front office due to the aforementioned drag profile, and the "demented chainsaw on nitromethane" sound. Most people love the looks of an Avanti... I don't know anyone who likes the sound.
