The PC-24 developed by Pilatus, already behind the extremely successful PC-12, is looking like it will be a real game changer in the private jet industry. Two prototypes are currently in the flight test phase and certification should follow in the upcoming months. The order book has been filled in 36 hours at EBACE, a further proof of the market's interest for this aircraft.
Essentially a midsize cabin for the price of a light jet, it also boasts extrordinary landing performances. Pilatus says the ability to land on short unpaved runways doubles the number of airports that will be accessible for corporate travel and leisure alike. When you step inside the aircraft, you immediately realize Swiss precision is at work. A very elegant design, a lot of head-room and natural light ensure a nice cabin atmosphere.
