Haute Aviation flies the Matterhorn
The Flying Matterhorn will open up more charter opportunities for Haute clients in Switzerland and more widely across Europe. It is particularly popular for winter flights to smaller airports.

Haute Aviation has taken delivery of a new PC-12 NGX. Based in Zurich, it is, according to managing partner Catherine Tamagni, a perfect fit for the fleet.

The aircraft bears a distinctive paint scheme with a representation of the Matterhorn on its tail. It has come to be known as the Flying Matterhorn within the company.

“The aircraft gives us more flexibility,” says Tamagni. “Along with our other PC12, we can perform more charter flights. A brand-new aircraft is always attractive for us and the passengers, and so far it has been performing fantastically. The artwork and the new interior are much appreciated by the clients.”

The exterior was created by ANOY, a young Swiss artist from the same region as the Pilatus factory. “It represents Switzerland in a very modern, stylish way with the symbol of the Matterhorn,” she adds.

“It is a full charter aircraft and will fly mostly in Switzerland, Europe and the UK. In the summer we get a lot of requests for St Tropez. The winter sees us flying to Gstaad and to more little airports, which are ‘only’ possible with a PC-12.”
