The Pilatus PC-24 business jet has received Transport Canada certification and exclusive Canada distributor Levaero will begin customer deliveries immediately.
The PC-24 achieved EASA and FAA certification in December 2017. Since then, more than 30 PC-24 aircraft have been delivered and have flown over 6,000 hours globally in various operating environments, ranging from corporate transport to aeromedical critical care.
The PC-24 offers light jet performance and operating economics. Operators have access to almost twice as many airports worldwide, largely due both to the jet's ability to safely land on unpaved surfaces as well as its short-field performance.
“Introducing customers to the first-ever Pilatus business jet is an important milestone for Levaero,” says CEO Robert Arnone. “We're honoured to be Canada's sole provider of an aircraft that offers this level of cutting-edge technology.”
Other features of the aircraft include larger cabin space with flexible interior configuration, greater payload capabilities, improved safety, Quiet Power Mode and a well-appointed interior.
“The PC-24 is going to be a game-changer within the Canadian aviation landscape, especially given its unique varied mission capabilities,” adds vice president, sales and business development Stan Kuliavas. “With its off-road capabilities and versatility, this aircraft will allow travellers to complete their unique missions more efficiently than with any other jet.”
The PC-24 is available for purchase in Canada with the first Canadian-registered aircraft delivered in June.
