Pilatus has configured and delivered their first 10 seater PC-24 “Super Versatile Jet”” to a US-based customer for corporate use.
Swiss-based aviation company Pilatus has delivered the first-ever 10 seater PC-24 Super Versatile Jet to a western United States customer.
First introduced to the market in 2018, the Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet lives up to its name with its ability to land on grass, gravel, snow, or asphalt and can be configured for public, private, or business use like the most recent ten-seater configured for corporate use.
For passengers comfort, each seat features a side storage compartment and cup holder along with a USB charging port to ensure passengers can remain connected throughout their trip.
“All of us at Pilatus are pleased to hand over this new PC-24 in the 10-seat commuter configuration. The PC-24 is the only aircraft in its category to offer this level of high-capacity interior for ten passengers. All seats are forward-facing, and internal cargo space of more than 50 cubic feet (1.4 cubic meters) remains accessible in flight,” shared Ignaz Gretener, VP General Aviation of Pilatus. “We expect this configuration will prove very popular with both public and private operators requiring a cost-effective solution for frequent transportation of passengers as an alternative to sending them on the airlines.”
As a “mid-size” jets, the cabin size of the PC-24 is considered spacious for a jet of its size and includes features like individually adjustable seats, a full washroom with a toilet, and a baggage area that is accessible in flight.
Inflight catering setups are also available as an option and can be configured with a forward galley at the front of the cabin with stowage for tea & coffee, ice, and catering equipment.
Pilatus’s order book for the PC-24 Super Versatile Jet is already fully booked for 2021, with current orders expected to be delivered in early 2022.
