Pilatus delivers PC-24 number one hundred
Sunday, 10 January 2021
Investment in the PC-24 has helped Pilatus to secure jobs at its Swiss site on a long-term basis. It is also working on further optimisations to ensure the order book remains buoyant.

Less than three years after the first delivery, the 100th PC-24 has just been handed over to its new owner. The PC-24 is now present on every continent, flying innumerable missions every day: providing medevac flights in Australia and the USA, for example, business travel for a German automobile manufacturer, and transport for government officials in South Africa and Switzerland.

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.

Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman of Pilatus, commented on the milestone as follows: "We hit the bullseye with the PC-24: I'm very encouraged by such high demand. We're already sold out for 2021, but the order book is open for deliveries from 2022 onward. Investment in the PC-24 helps us to secure jobs at our Swiss site on a long-term basis. We are also working on further optimisations. In short, we will spare no effort to ensure that the PC-24 stays the undisputed leader in its class – exactly as the PC-12 is now."

Pilatus is currently taking orders for deliveries from around early 2022.
