Second PC-24 to be used for demonstration flights by authorized Pilatus center

The second production PC-24 has been delivered to Western Aircraft, an authorized Pilatus sales and service center since 1996.

“We are very proud to be the first Pilatus dealer to take delivery of this fantastic new aircraft,” said Phil Winters, vice president of sales and charter for Western Aircraft. “Pilatus exceeded all the ambitious performance targets it promised five years ago when the PC-24 was unveiled to the public. Of course, being a partner with Pilatus for over 20 years, we know how they under-promise and over-deliver, so we did not hesitate to order as many PC-24s as they would let us take.”

The new PC-24 will be based at Western’s headquarters in Boise, Idaho, and will be used for demonstration flights, and eventually charter, on a limited basis.

“There is nothing else like the PC-24 on the market, and demand for it has been much higher than we anticipated,” said Winters. “Even though we’ve received more than a dozen offers to buy this first aircraft, we’ve decided to take it into inventory and use it as a demonstrator over the next year. That gives us the ability to show it to existing order holders, and also to prospective customers who want to get in on the next block of aircraft when Pilatus re-opens the order book.”

Western Aircraft serves the northwestern USA. It is the most successful dealership for Pilatus’ PC-12, having sold more than 230 of the single-engine turboprop.
