The Pilatus PC-24 prototype “P01” is currently going through a stringent series of flight tests and the flight program is going well.

“Together, the two prototypes have completed 300 flights and more than 500 hours in Switzerland, Spain, Scotland and Iceland,” Oscar J. Schwenk, chairman of the board of directors for Pilatus said. “In the past few months, we have concluded numerous important tests to explore the flight envelope and observe how the aircraft handles natural icing conditions. The results are extremely positive and confirm that the PC-24 will be a superb aircraft in line with the high standards of the ‘Pilatus Class’ – exactly as our customers expect.”

EBACE attendees can check out the new updated interior for the PC-24. There are six colour concepts available created in tandem by Pilatus and Designworks, a BWO Group Company.
