Swiss aircraft manufacturer Pilatus has delivered the first of two PC-24 Super Versatile Jets to US customer U-Haul International.
In a stylish paint scheme featuring the distinctive U-Haul orange livery, the 27th production PC-24 aircraft took to the skies from its new home base in Phoenix, Arizona, where it will join a U-Haul fleet that includes two PC-12s.
On hand to accept the keys to the company’s first PC-24 was Joe Shoen, chairman of AMERCO, parent company of U-Haul International, who said, “We are delighted to start flying this great new aircraft. When Pilatus announced the new jet, we were confident that it would be a real workhorse that, alongside our two PC-12s, would help us manage our growing operations throughout North America. We have been eagerly looking forward to this day.”
With the aircraft now in operation, the global fleet of PC-24s has accumulated over 4,000 flight hours, with the fleet leader already clocking up more than 1,100.
The PC-24 Super Versatile Jet will be on display during EBACE 2019, to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from May 21 to 23.
