(sda) The PC-24 is used as a “super versatile jet” in a variety of ways: Often as a business jet, but also as an ambulance in Australia or Alaska or as a government aircraft for the Federal Council.
The global fleet of the PC-24 has so far spent over 33,500 hours in the air, wrote the central Swiss company in a statement on Tuesday. Jetfly operates the largest Pilatus fleet in Europe with around 50 aircraft.
While the large aviation industry is suffering from the effects of the corona crisis, business at Pilatus is running smoothly, according to Oscar Schwenk, Chairman of the Board of Directors. The demand for PC-24 is extremely good, he was quoted in the communiqué. Pilatus is already sold out for 2021, but the order book is open for deliveries from around the beginning of 2022.
At the end of the year he had already stated in an interview with the “Luzerner Zeitung” that 2020 had been a good year. And the prospects for 2021 are not bad either.
