According to a press release by Pilatus, 30 of the 84 PC-24s sold so far are currently in operation around the world. The Nidwalden aircraft builder wants to deliver a further 40 of its versatile business jet this year, stepping up production to 50 aircraft the following year.

Oscar J. Schwenk, is quoted as saying in the press release: “Demand for the PC-24 is phenomenal. Feedback from the first 30PC-24 operators is extremely positive, with special mention of the aircraft’s versatility, its spacious, quiet cabin and the incredible performance of the PC-24.“

In 2014, Pilatus had closed its order book after the initial selling round for receipt of feedback from the first PC-24 operators. The 30 aircraft already delivered have clocked up over 5,000 hours of safe airborne time. Consequently, the company is now taking orders again with immediately effect. The business jet which is already certified for use on unpaved runways and steep approaches is to obtain post-certification for other surfaces, including grass.
