Pilatus brings series-standard PC-24 to EBACE

0

The third PC-24 prototype, which also represents the series standard, was unveiled to the general public at EBACE 2017, which was held in Geneva, Switzerland, on May 22-24. The third PC-24 has a pearlescent livery and executive ‘Zermatt’ interior. Pilatus also displayed a 1:1 mock-up with the ‘Vail’ interior, in a six- plus two-seat configuration.

Further certification flights are in progress. Certification is planned for Q4 2017 and initial customer deliveries are scheduled immediately thereafter.

In 2014, Pilatus sold 84 PC-24s in the space of 36 hours. The order book is currently closed, but is due to re-open in 2018 after receipt of the first positive reports from PC-24 operators.

Final PC-24 performance data will be published after certification. The data gathered by Pilatus thus far indicates that the Super Versatile Jet’s performance is likely to exceed expectations.

The PC-24 is designed to take off and land on very short runways, or unpaved runways, and comes with a cargo door as standard.
