Russia gives go-ahead to PC-24 and its engine

The PC-24 could prove very popular in Russia.

Nesterov Aviation, an authorised sales and service centre for Pilatus in Russia, reports that Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) has simultaneously issued two important certificates; a type certificate for the РС-24 and an engine type certificate for the Williams International FJ44-4A-QPM engine installed on the aircraft.

“We have been waiting for this moment for a long time, and it is equally joyful for Nesterov and Pilatus Aircraft now the PC-24 is certified in Russia,” states a Nesterov representative. “This is yet another reason for Russian clients to become PC-24 owners. As an authorised sales and service Pilatus centre in Russia, we want to thank the Russian aviation authorities, Rosaviatsiya in particular, for the well-coordinated work and support during all certification stages.”

PC-24 deliveries to Russia are scheduled for 2021.
