7 Screenshots

About This File



X-Plane 9 version have been added.


In this version are included the 3 fixes I have posted after v1.1 release (Mostly for X-Plane 10):

-Landing light flickering.

-A circle that appeared on FO PFD with HDR ON.

-Added prefill object to improve frame rates (you should see improvement even up to 20%).

Moreover, now when the aircraft is loaded, the displays are bright (HDR-ON).

Also, in this version have been added realistic shadows to the panel when you turn on the cockpit light (the one below the AP panel).



Version 1.1

This version is more optimized for better performance of the low end machines.


  • Flight model within 10% of the real aircraft (as per manual)
  • Autopilot operations as the real aircraft
  • Many functions and screen indications are SASL driven
  • X-Plane 10 64 bit full compatible
  • Main landing gear object has added (was missing for XP10 in the previous version)
  • Electronic checklist in MFD
  • Real clock functions
  • Engine indication turn red when limits exceeded
  • UFMC and X-FMC config files are included. Those files have been adapted specially for this aircraft
  • New 2-page checklist to be printed in a single sheet
  • Updated Operating manual
  • You can use now the condition levers and flap lever by mouse


Use caution when using the throttles! As in the real aircraft, be advancing the throttles too full, torque limits can be exceeded by a lot!

PLEASE: Any questions or problems post them to the forum for this aircraft. I'm visiting it daily so I can respond as quick as possible.

At last, I want to THANK Tony Day, who, with his experience and work, helped me to make this aircraft as real as possible.


When switching on the landing lights (LDG position), the lights might not come on, instead the will flicker. To fix that download the file below.



1. Unzip the file.

2. Put the file to P180 Avanti II/Customs Avionics folder, and replace the previous file.

3. Go and test it.


After 7 months of work, finally is here! The Piaggio P.180 Avanti II.

This is an upgrade of the original P.180 Avanti.


  • New full 3D glass cockpit with emulation of Proline 21 Avionics Suite.
  • Most of the switches are operational
  • Realistic cockpit lighting
  • 170+ customs instruments
  • Various operations driven by SASL scripts
  • Compatibility with UFMC and X-FMC (config files are provided)
  • Operating Manual
  • Checklist

It is designed for X-Plane 9, but it have been tested and performs very well in X-Plane 10 32-bit, with some minor issues. It is not recommended for X-Plane 10 64-bit.

A detailed Operating Manual is provided. PLESE READ IT! Also, a standalone A5 size checklist is provided for printing.


  • Robert Pearson, for his permission to upgrade the P.180 Avanti (and the rest of the team, Massimo Durando and Sergio Santagada, for this beautiful aircraft)
  • Vonhinx, for his help with SASL.
  • Dan Klaue, his tutorials inspired me into creating aircraft for X-Plane, and now I creating aircrafts and I don't fly! (well, except testing!)

My tools was Blender and Gimp.


At the forum: http://forums.x-pilot.com/index.php/topic/3467-piaggio-p180-avanti-ii-upgrade/ PLEASE: Before asking for support, READ THE MANUAL!


  • A "XFEED" annunciator, may indicate a problem with the plugin. By reloading the aircraft this is solved.
  • In X-Plane 10, the rear legs of the landing gear are...transparent. This will be solved in the next release.
  • In X-Plane 10, the cockpit during the night, with HDR OFF, is very bright. With HDR ON is ok.
  • Since there is no available 64-bit SASL plugin, this aircraft will not work with 64-bit.


At least one more version (1.1) will be released for X-Plane 9 and 10, solving any problems that will come up. A v 2.0 will be released later, when SASL 64-bit will be available and will have all the new features of the X-Plane 10.
