Ferrari has taken delivery of a Piaggio Aero Industries Avanti P180 turboprop in executive configuration. The twin engine business aircraft was handed over to the Italian car manufacturer and Formula One racing team on 18 May at Piaggio's Genoa Sestri's factory. The aircraft will become the second P180 to appear on the Formula One circuit, joining an older model owned by Williams racing driver Ralf Schumacher.


The high-profile sale to Ferrari, which is also a stakeholder in the aircraft company, should help to boost the executive P180 orderbook. A further 11 Avantis are set for delivery this year.
