Swiss operator Albinati Aeronautics has added a factory-new Pilatus PC-24 to its fleet. The aircraft is based in Geneva and is immediately available for charter. Maltese registered, it will operate under Albinati's Malta AOC. The company has also been entrusted with the management of two Pilatus PC-12s, which are available for charter flights through one of its customers who has long appreciated the quality of its services. In order to commercially operate these PC-12 through its Swiss AOC, Albinati has received an ad hoc licence from the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation, the second ever delivered for this type of aircraft in Switzerland.
By enlarging and diversifying its fleet in these challenging times, Albinati Aeronautics says it has confirmed its reputation as a dependable charter provider, due to the skills and dedication of its more than 140 highly experienced staff members.
The integration of the Pilatus PC-12s and an additional new PC-24 marks the company’s move to offering light and versatile jets. It says it is determined to bring to this segment its recognised standards of excellence acquired over two decades of activity in the ultra long-range domain.
Accustomed to worldwide operations with a fleet of over 25 long-range jets composed of Bombardier Globals – including three new Global 7500s – Dassault Falcon 7X and 8X, Challenger and Citation Latitude types, Albinati's teams have familiarised themselves with the specifics of the newly integrated PC-12. These aircraft offer strong short-field performance that favours the use of smaller airports such as Saanen/Gstaad, St Tropez-La Môle and many others that are in high demand among business aviation travellers.
