The Pilatus PC-24 - A Brand New Private Jet on The Market
25 March 2019
The Pilatus PC-24 is one of the newest, sleekest and modern aircraft to enter the market and we were lucky enough to be one of the first to charter it!
Our client needed a domestic flight within South Africa so we reached out to one of our favoured operators in the region and managed to get hold of this amazing aircraft.
Its short take off and landing performance capabilities make it ideal to fly in and out of small airports.
The cabin is spacious and luxurious and needless to say, our clients absolutely loved it! Every component has been chosen to give the ultimate passenger experience. With soft leather seats and rare hardwood cabinetry with attention to the details, the interior reflects the purpose of the aircraft. The generously sized cabin, with its continuous flat floor, allows for a good amount of headroom.
With 90cu ft of baggage capacity, this aircraft earns its stripes.
Being so I believe this aircraft could be a game changer within the European market.
Pilatus say "There are around 10,650 airports in the world that you can access with an aircraft able to operate on runways with a length of 3,130 feet (954 m). There are an additional 880 airports that become available when your aircraft needs only 2,930 feet (893 m). Of course, in both cases these runways will have to be paved.
Now let’s look at the number of runways around the world that offer a length of at least 2,930 feet (893 m) but feature unpaved surfaces – like grass or gravel. The number is almost 20,000! So with the PC-24, you will have access to almost 100 % more airports around the world. That means you can fly closer to your final destination than with any other business jet. You’ll be able to use smaller airports and avoid massive administrative procedures, and reduce ground transfer time to an absolute minimum." That is why we love it!
