Pilot - - NOTES -

In Oc­to­ber Oriens Avi­a­tion’s Pi­la­tus Cen­tre at Lon­donBig­gin Hill hosted the first visit of the Swiss man­u­fac­turer’s PC-24 busi­ness jet, when frac­tional op­er­a­tor Jet­fly brought the air­craft, and one of its 22 PC-12NG tur­bo­prop sin­gles, dur­ing the com­pany’s Eu­ro­pean tour. The PC-24 had pre­vi­ously been demon­strated at Tous­sus-le-no­ble, near Paris, and An­nemasse, near Geneva.

Lux­em­bourg-based Jet­fly was Eu­ro­pean launch cus­tomer for the PC-24, and has four on or­der, with one that was due for de­liv­ery in Novem­ber, an­other in June, and the last next De­cem­ber. “Lon­don Big­gin Hill Air­port is reg­u­larly re­quested by our PC-12 mem­ber­ship, ow­ing to its good prox­im­ity to cen­tral Lon­don; gen­er­ous open­ing hours and at­trac­tive fa­cil­i­ties. We ex­pect our new jets will be reg­u­lar visi­tors at this pop­u­lar Lon­don air­port too,” Jet­fly Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Cé­dric Lescop pre­dicted.
