The A-VIATOR is an economical non pressurized twin engine turboprop answering to a multiple array of needs from private/charter operations to advanced airborne surveillance and aerial work missions. The A-VIATOR design is derived from the smaller P68 Series and its legendary flight qualities have been maintained.
The fuselage has been stretched to allow more space on board and 2 turbine powerplants replace the piston engines allowing the aircraft to operate in areas where AvGas is not readily available.
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.

Design Features and Information
The A-Viator is powered by two Rolls-Royce 250 B17 C engines flat-rated at 328 SHP at 2030 rpm. The engines drive Hartzell three-blade, constant speed, fully feathering, reversible pitch propellers.
The excellent engine characteristics allow the aircraft to deliver:
- superior performance relative to piston aircraft
- excellent weight/power ratio
- fuel economy
- low emissions, low noise
- reverse thrust
- high TBO
The excellent performance and economics of the A-Viator can be summarized as follows:
- low operating costs (low drag and low fuel consumption)
- operation from short, unprepared airstrips
- twin engine safety and reliability
- ease of maintenance
- excellent payload
- low noise levels
- outstanding versatility
- full IFR capability
Rough Field Performance
A rugged landing gear, coupled with the wide wheel-base and the wing mounted engines that provide substantial ground clearance, allows the A-Viator to operate safely from short and unprepared strips. This capability is essential to operators who must fly into remote and seldom used airfields.
The A-Viator family has been designed and developed for a long service life and to minimize maintenance requirements.
Total maintenance costs are very low thanks to:
- simple rugged structure
- high prop tip clearance that considerably reduces foreign object damage
- easily accessible service points
Dependability and ease of maintenance enable the A-Viator to be operated in remote areas for long periods of time.
The A-Viator's clean aerodynamics and and excellent weight/power ratio. This economic efficiency gives the A-Viator’s operators a substantial profit margin, unattainable by other turbine aircraft generally utilised for the same missions.
