Special Mission A-Viator
The A-Viator is an 11-seat high-wing twin turboprop developed to meet the ever-increasing demands, from operators, for an aircraft with high performance and low operating costs.
Its basic design is derived from the successful P68 Series and many of the latter’s features have been maintained.
The retractable landing gear improves the already excellent speed characteristics, and the stretched fuselage allows a more efficient use of cabin space, resulting in a maximum seating capacity of 9 passengers and 2 pilots.
The extreme versatility, ease of maintenance and unmatched low operating costs make A-Viator able to meet the most stringent requirements of the operators.
The A-Viator’s excellent performance perfectly complements its outstanding versatility. The performance data given below is based on test flights, corrected for standard conditions and at maximum weight.
