Pilatus Jet Production Sells Out
The light-jet segment has been slow to rebound from the recession, but Pilatus has improved the recovery rate with its new PC-24. The company took 84 orders at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in May, essentially selling out production through 2020. The 10-seat twin-engine jet will be certified to operate from gravel and grass runways, and will travel up to 1,950 nautical miles at speeds up to 400 knots. First flight is expected in early 2015, with deliveries to start two years later.
