Pilatus PC-24 makes Biggin debut
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.
