Oriens Aviation, the exclusive UK and Ireland sales distributor and Authorised Pilatus Centre, has announced the acquisition of three delivery positions on the PC-24 Super Versatile Jet.

The Biggin Hill Airport-based company has already sold one of the positions, with the other two available in July 2020 and mid-2021, respectively.

“There is no shortage of interest in the PC-24 in the British Isles,” said Oriens Aviation CEO Edwin Brenninkmeyer, who noted that, prior to Oriens’ involvement, Pilatus handled prospective British Isles PC-24 customers directly.

“We have since taken on those in our region and duly inherited a sizeable base of interest from owners, from both the UK and Ireland,” he added.

Oriens’ first PC-24 has been sold to a private UK customer, an existing PC-12 operator, Brenninkmeyer confirmed.

“Customers interested in the other two are encouraged to commit with deposits and spec their interiors in good time,” he said.

Brenninkmeyer, who regularly performs demo flights for prospective customers in the Pilatus PC-12, also intends to learn to fly the Pilatus PC-24 aircraft.
