Pilatus PC 24

Super Versatile Pilatus PC-24 Jet can takeoff on grass and rough runway. In January 2021, Pilatus delivered its 100th PC-24 Jet since 2018.

  • The PC-24 is the first of a new class of “Super Versatile Jet” (SVJ) that combines the performance of a jet aircraft. It has the versatility of a turboprop machine.
  • It can land and take off on runways shorter than similar jets and unpaved surfaces such as grass, gravel, and soil.

Super Versatile Pilatus PC-24 Jet scores extra points for its modern, fuel-efficient Williams engines and smart Advanced Cockpit Environment (ACE).

World’s first Super Versatile Pilatus PC-24 Jet

The PC-24 is simply different. It is the only aircraft that combines turboprop flexibility with a simple jet cabinet size, and jet light functionality. The PC-24 is designed to be “off-road” compatible from the start even on open roads – it opens up an incredibly good ride.

Can takeoff on short and rough fields runways.

The PC-24 provides access to almost twice as many aerodromes around the world as other jets currently on the market. It takes passengers closer to their actual destination because the PC-24 is designed for use at small airports with shorter runways – a great way to avoid the usual administrative complexities at larger airports and keep transfers on the ground to an absolute minimum.

Features

There are about 10,650 airports in the world where you can reach an aircraft that can operate on a 3,130 feet (954 m) long runway. There’s an additional 880 airports available when your plane needs only 2,930 feet (893 m). Of course, in both cases, these runways would have to be paved.

Now, look at the number of runways worldwide that are at least 2,930 feet (893 m) long but include non-paved surfaces – such as grass or gravel. The number is close to 20,000. So with the PC-24, you’ll have access to almost 100% more airports worldwide. You will be able to use smaller airports and avoid huge administrative procedures, and reduce the ground transfer time to an absolute minimum.
