The Piaggio P.180 Avanti is an executive light transport aircraft, designed by Piaggio Aero and built in Italy. It features twin, wing-mounted turboprop engines, in a pusher configuration. The Avanti seats up to 9 people in a pressurized cabin and may be flown by one or two pilots. The design is of three-surface configuration, having both a small forward wing and a conventional tailplane, as well as its main wing, with the main wing spars passing behind the passenger cabin area. The FAI lists it as the fastest propeller-driven aircraft with speed of 500 kt (927.4 km/h).

In 2014 Piaggio announced development of an updated version, named EVO. It uses new composite propellers, new winglets, aerodynamic improvements, and an additional fuel tank option to increase range to 1,770 nm (3,280 km).
