Pilatus first jet delivered

In a ceremony at Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd in Broomfield, Colorado (USA), the initial production PC-24 twin jet was handed over to lead customer PlaneSense who has six on order.

Since 1996, PlaneSense has successfully specialized in offering fractional ownership transportation service with the single engine turboprop PC-12 and currently operates 36 of the popular single. 

George Antoniadis, PlaneSense founder, president and CEO, stated at the ceremony: “We are honoured to be the launch customer for the PC-24, and are excited to add this versatile and unique jet to the PlaneSense fleet. We have greatly admired the quality and state of the art design of Pilatus aircraft, and are proud to have partnered with Pilatus for the last 22 years. This is an exciting day for us, as well as for our clients who are eager to start flying in this fantastic aircraft.”

The PC-24 is claimed to be the world's first business jet to be equipped with a cargo door as standard. Its performance allows it the use of very short and even unmade runways.  The jet also boasts a spacious cabin with an interior which can be customised to accommodate individual needs.  Hence the name "Super Versatile Jet" – an aircraft designed for a wide variety of missions in line with specific requirements.
