Description[edit]

The Zanadu is a luxury aircraft created by Avanti Aerospace in the beginning of the thirty-first century. The aircraft is based on Avanti's twenty-ninth century Longshoreman aircraft, a basic transport which has an excellent safety record.[1][2]

Zanadu Air Buses are typically customized per the customer's order, so no two aircraft are exactly the same.[1][2]

Equipment and Capabilities[edit]

The Zanadu carries five tons of cargo with access through the left wing door. It also features 100 passenger seats and a field kitchen.[1][2]

Avanti craftsman can equip the design with a wide array of equipment and amenities. These range from communications equipment and sleeping quarters to other, more unusual, features.[1][2]
