PC-24s make so much sense for PlaneSense
Since PlaneSense's first PC-24 arrived a year ago it has visited 250 airports in six countries. A second has now been delivered, and the fractional operator is expecting another four in the next 12 months.
PlaneSense is experiencing significant demand for PC-24 shares.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire-based fractional ownership provider PlaneSense has added a second Pilatus PC-24 to its programme. The jet is the second of six in the company’s initial order from Pilatus, and follows on from its receipt of the world's first PC-24 in February last year.

“We are thrilled to add another Pilatus PC-24 jet to our programme fleet,” says president and CEO George Antoniadis. “Our clients have greatly enjoyed the expansive cabin and conveniences afforded by jet travel. This jet, and each consecutive aircraft, will allow us to meet the growing demand for more PC-24 shares.”

PlaneSense’s first PC-24 has been flying share owners since March 2018. Since then, it has accessed 250 airports in six countries. Twelve pilots have been type-rated on the PC-24 and 11 maintenance technicians have completed specialised training to service the model. The latest arrival is expected to begin flying passengers by the end of February.

The programme’s third PC-24 is expected to arrive in March 2019. The remaining three jets in the initial order are slated for delivery in autumn 2019 and early 2020.
