Fractional operator Jetfly brought its Pilatus PC-24 to London Biggin Hill Airport in October, as part of the aircraft’s European tour.
The PC-24 stopped at Oriens Aviation, the British Isles Pilatus Centre and sales distributor for the PC-12.
“Oriens Aviation offers an extensive maintenance facility at Biggin Hill, so its smart hangar was the perfect backdrop to showcase our amazing, one month-old Super Versatile Jet in the UK,” said Jetfly CEO Cédric Lescop.
Jonathan Clough, Jetfly Sales Director for the UK, hosted the October event for current members and new prospects interested in seeing the new jet, up close and personal. Oriens was represented by Craig Lammiman, Sales Director.
Jetfly is looking forward to accepting its second PC-24 this month. It takes one more next June and another in December.
“The eight-seater PC-24 is a real game-changer, capable of landing on smaller airstrips, including grass, that other comparable light jets cannot,” said Lescop.
“The PC-24 gives our members a competitive advantage and such is the demand for Pilatus’ new jet, with its increased range, speed and large cargo door, just like the best-selling PC-12 turboprop, we have already filled up the flying slots for most of 2019.”
Jetfly has teamed with French designer Philippe Starck to design the livery and interior of its PC-24s. The aircraft are configured with eight cream leather seats and plush carpeting. Cabinetry shows black-brown exteriors and electric lime interiors.
