A group of businessmen based in Ireland has bought a Pilatus PC-12 for business trips to Europe.

Bob Berry, md of the Pilatus PC-12 Centre UK, said: "The manufacturer is building 100 a year but everything is sold to the end of 2007. We have sold our allocation and are taking orders for early 2008."
