Flyinggroup adds ninth PC-24 to management programme
The Belgian charter company has operated the Super Versatile Jet by Pilatus since 2020 and this PC-24 will bring variety and performance to the fleet.
This latest Edelweiss PC-24 has a higher payload and greater range than the previous one.

Antwerp International airport-based Flyinggroup is to add a ninth PC-24 to its fleet management programme.

Established in 1995, the company currently operates a fleet of more than 50 business jets, including nine PC-24s. The acquisition of the PC-24, with its unique design of elegant grey lines and Swiss edelweiss flowers, will allow Flyinggroup to add more variety and performance to its fleet.

CEO Johan van Lokeren says: “Our customers love the PC-24. The Super Versatile Jet is the most modern jet in its class and the spacious cabin offers unparalleled comfort. Our first ‘Edelweiss PC-24’ has been in operation for several years, and we’re proud to take delivery of a second, latest generation Edelweiss with a higher payload and even greater range.”

André Zimmermann, VP business aviation for Pilatus, adds: “In this class, there is no other business jet as versatile or capable as our Super Versatile Jet. People who see the PC-24 for the first time are always amazed at how spacious the cabin is. And the most recent upgrade to the PC-24 delivers yet another reduction in cabin noise. We have no doubt that the passengers of our valued partner Flyinggroup will enjoy the flexibility and other amenities.”

The new PC-24 offers an additional 272kg in payload capacity. The maximum range with six passengers on board has been increased by 200nm. With full fuel, and under single pilot operation, the maximum useful load is 596kg, an optimisation that delivers significant benefits particularly in charter operations, since more passengers and luggage can be carried onboard. The new PC-24 operated by Flyinggroup also features an enhanced cabin configuration with welcome centre and additional stowage space in the cabin.

The new PC-24 and a PC-12 NGX were on display at EBACE.
