Cobham to Provide Composite Aerostructures for PiaggioaEUR(tm)s New Multirole Patrol Aircraft

Cobham has been selected by Piaggio Aero Industries to provide several major composite aerostructures for the new Piaggio Multirole Patrol Aircraft (MPA) under development with ADASI – Abu Dhabi Autonomous System Investments - a subsidiary of Tawazun. The Piaggio MPA – based on the P180 Avanti II platform – has a larger flying surface area and more powerful engines for greater endurance and range.

Cobham Antenna Systems will design, manufacture and qualify dedicated ailerons, fixed trailing edges, outboard wing flaps, horizontal stabilisers, elevators, flap track fairings, main landing gear doors and a selection of aerodynamic fairings. These components will be used to equip the first MPA aircraft being developed for the program’s launch customer and to support qualification testing.
