That's why it was so loud
Due to the strongly disturbed flow in which the pusher propellers operate, the exterior noise is higher than desirable.
The P180 has been the subject of noise complaints at airports such as Naples Municipal Airport, Florida, where the airport authority determined it was the noisiest aircraft using that facility.
Alan Parker, chairman of the Naples Municipal Airport Authority's technical committee, described the Avanti as "irritating loud" and compared the high pitched sound "to fingernails on a chalk board"
