Italian multinational aerospace manufacturing company Piaggio Aerospace has announced it will participate in this year’s Avalon Airshow in Geelong.

The event, which is the leading aviation, aerospace and defence event in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, attracting civil, military and government decision-makers from around the world, is a top priority for Piaggio Aerospace according to their CEO Renato Vaghi.

"We consider this part of the world as a top-priority of Piaggio Aerospace’s development and we will be there to promote our excellence in business aviation, with our state-of-the-art Avanti EVO, and in defence industries to a market that we consider full of opportunities," he said.

Currently, there are more than 220 P.180 Avanti aircraft in operation globally: six of the latest generation Avanti EVO, 126 of the second-generation Avanti II, and 89 of the original Avanti.

Designed to integrate the most sophisticated navigation and mission management systems currently available, the P.1HH HammerHead redefines not just the standard but the very concept of aerial patrol, offering the international market the most innovative and versatile UAS in the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance field.

Piaggio Aerospace will be at stand 1J21 at the Avalon Airshow between the 28 February and 5 March.
