As the power plant on the plane model Partenavia P.68 Victor used two piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-360-A1B6 (one of the variants of the aircraft), each of which has a capacity of 200 hp, which in turn provides a high-speed aircraft flight about 320 km \ h. (Depending on version), as well as a high load capacity. In later versions of the aircraft Partenavia P.68 Victor can be used also turboprop powerplant, allowing features such as speed, maximum load capacity and maximum flight height is largely increased.
