The first production Pilatus PC-24 super versatile twin jet was handed over to US customer PlaneSense in early February.

The aircraft is the first of six PC-24s that PlaneSense has on order.

George Antoniadis, PlaneSense founder, President and CEO, stated: “We greatly admire the quality and state of the art design of Pilatus aircraft, and are proud to have partnered with Pilatus for the last 22 years.”

On hand for the delivery was Pilatus CEO Markus Bucher, who personally handed over the keys to the first PC-24, serial number 101. He said: “We’ve been eagerly working toward this moment since the conception of this innovative new jet a decade ago. On behalf of the 2,000 Pilatus employees who designed, built, and certified the best business aircraft in our 80-year company history, we are proud to have our long-time customer and partner PlaneSense take delivery of the very first PC-24.”

All cabin monuments for this jet came from F/List, the internationally renowned manufacturer of high-end interiors for business jets and luxury residences.

F/List supplied the interior for the entrance and main cabin including lavatory, sliding doors, tables, galley, stone countertops and stone flooring.
