FlightSafety ups the ante on PC-24 FFSs
Excellent short-field performance, combined with its capability to operate from both paved and unpaved runways, make the PC-24 a unique business jet. FlightSafety is working to train more pilots on the type.
This simulator will be the second PC-24 simulator in the FlightSafety Paris Le Bourget Learning Center.

FlightSafety International, in partnership with Pilatus Aircraft, will deploy a fourth full-flight simulator (FFS) for the Pilatus PC-24 to meet the growing demand for training in Europe.

This simulator will be the second PC-24 simulator in the FlightSafety Paris Le Bourget Learning Center. The new simulator is planned to be ready for training during the second quarter of 2024. The other two simulators for this specific aircraft are located in the FlightSafety Dallas-Fort Worth North Learning Center.

“FlightSafety is pleased to offer expanded capacity to meet the demand in Europe for the growing fleet of PC-24 operators,” says Nate Speiser, executive vice president of sales and marketing at FlightSafety. “FlightSafety has trained over 1,000 PC-24 pilots since introducing training for this aircraft in 2013, and we are excited to continue to advance our partnership with Pilatus for this programme.”

“Pilatus's continuous work and close collaboration with FlightSafety International has led to a consolidated solid partnership and professional training of PC-24 pilots. We are pleased to welcome the fourth PC-24 flight simulator in the PC-24 community; a great opportunity to fulfil future training demands while improving availability for all our current customers and operators,” comments Ignaz Gretener, VP general aviation.

The PC-24 Super Versatile Jet is a uniquely designed aircraft providing a highly desirable set of comforts and benefits to its passengers and operators. The PC-24 offers a larger passenger cabin with a continuous flat floor and a pressurised baggage compartment. Its excellent short-field performance combined with its capability to operate from both paved and unpaved runways make the PC-24 a unique business jet capable of exploring locations and airfields not easily accessible by other similar class aircraft.
