Orlando, Florida-based Off The Chain Capital, which specialises in blockchain and digital assets, has placed an order with Piaggio for an Avanti EVO.
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,” comments Brian Estes, managing partner and CIO of Off The Chain Capital. “I am very excited to have finally made this dream come true.”
Piaggio Aerospace extraordinary commissioner Vincenzo Nicastro adds: “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 business. In recent months this is the third sale of an Avanti EVO in the United States, a dynamic market that confirms a strong interest in an aircraft that, 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 that includes 14 Avanti EVOs and the modernisation of the onboard systems of 19 P.180s operated by the Italian Armed Forces.
