The first PC-24 in high-utility 10-seat commuter configuration has been delivered to a customer in the western US. Pilatus now offers a commuter configuration for up to 10 passengers, delivering a safe, efficient, cost-effective corporate travel solution for company employees. Each seat is installed with a quick-release mechanism, allowing easy cabin reconfiguration for all transportation requirements.
The PC-24's payload capacity of 1,134 kgs and standard large cargo door enable operators to load bulky items. The cabin features a private lavatory which can be serviced from the exterior. Unlike many other light and midsize jets in this category, the lavatory seat is not used as a passenger seat, owing to a loss of comfort.
Seat pitch in the commuter configuration varies from 34 to 40 inches. Each seat features a side storage compartment and cup holder as well as four 115-volt power outlets to enhance productivity. The PC-24's flat floor also adds to comfort on long trips.
VP of general aviation Ignaz Gretener says: “All of us at Pilatus are pleased to hand over this new PC-24 in the 10-seat commuter configuration. The PC-24 is the only aircraft in its category to offer this level of high-capacity interior for 10 passengers. All seats are forward-facing, and internal cargo space of more than 50 cubic feet remains accessible in flight. We expect this configuration will prove very popular with both public and private operators requiring a solution for the frequent transportation of passengers as an alternative to sending them on the airlines.”
