the Pilatus Super Versatile Jet Takes Off

The 100th Super Versatile Jet “made by Pilatus in Switzerland” is now in use as a business aircraft with its new owner, Jetfly Aviation. This handover marks another milestone in the still young history of the first Swiss business jet: the global fleet has clocked up over 33,500 safe hours in the air so far, of which over 2,375 hours have been accumulated by the fleet leader.

195 cubic feet (14.2 cubic metres) of cabin volume with flat floor throughout 

The PC-24’s exceptionally generous interior comfortably offers sufficient space for up to ten passengers. In relation to cabin size, the PC-24 has earned its place in the “mid-size jets” category: customers who opt for a PC-24 actually end up with the same cabin size as in a model of the next higher price category.

The PC-24 offers passengers individually adjustable seats, a washroom with toilet, a baggage area which remains accessible in flight and a wardrobe. It also boasts a large cargo door with a system for securing luggage – a unique feature in this aircraft category, and one that is much appreciated by the pilots tasked with stowing passenger baggage.

From now on, the PC-24 is also available with a modular inflight catering facility. The forward galley is located in the front section of the cabin and offers additional stowage room for coffee, ice, beverages and catering items.

The Super Versatile Jet also scores extra points for its modern, fuel-efficient Williams engines and smart Advanced Cockpit Environment (ACE).
