Portsmouth, NH, July 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- PlaneSense (http://www.planesense.com) the fractional aircraft ownership company that manages the largest fleet of Pilatus PC-12 turboprop aircraft in the world, will enter into the world of fractional jet programs when it acquires six new Pilatus PC-24 jet aircraft. The new aircraft is slated to be certified in the first half of 2017, with deliveries to PlaneSense shortly thereafter.
PlaneSense, already well-regarded for its 20 years of safe operation in fractional aircraft ownership with the Pilatus PC-12 turboprop, believes the PC-24 jet will be a standout when it comes to fractional jet programs because it offers the speed, range and cabin size of a medium jet, with the performance and price of a light jet. The PC-24 also offers excellent short-field performance, capability to land on unimproved runways, and the signature large rear cargo door that makes the PC-12 so desirable to those in the PlaneSense fractional aircraft ownership program.
Of the PC-24 order agreements to date, the PlaneSense program’s order for six jet aircraft is the largest. “We are thrilled to be one of the first PC-24 customers and believe that this aircraft is ideal for our entry into the fractional jet programs side of this business,” said George Antoniadis, President and CEO of PlaneSense. “We look forward to purchasing additional PC-24s in the coming years.”
