PC-24 delivery
Having operated its first PC-24 for more than a year, PlaneSense just received the second ship of its initial six unit order. Another of the light jets is expected to arrive in March, with the conclusion of the order in early 2020.

PlaneSense Welcomes Its Second Pilatus PC-24

The aircraft fractional-share provider has four more of the light jets on order.

Fractional aircraft ownership provider PlaneSense recently welcomed a second Pilatus PC-24 to its fleet. The twin-engine light jet is part of the company’s initial order of six and comes a little more than a year after PlaneSense accepted its first, which has been flying shareowners since March. In that time, it has visited 250 airports in six countries.

"With the very first Pilatus PC-24 jet in the world, we have experienced a steep maturing curve," George Antoniadis, president and CEO of the New Hampshire–based company told BJT, adding that the airplane continues to exceed PlaneSense's expectations. "Pilatus has been an extremely resourceful partner in this entry-into-service experience. As with any first production aircraft, one would expect the need to address minor 'squawks.' We have been pleasantly surprised by the small number of needed changes and with how quickly they are being systematically resolved.”

Deliveries are set to begin in 2017 on a model our reviewer considers peerless.

Twelve company pilots have thus far earned PC-24 type ratings, while 11 of PlaneSense's maintenance technicians have completed specialized training to service the airplane, which is expected to enter service by the end of the month.

The third PC-24 in the order is expected to arrive next month, with the remaining three to be delivered by early next year.
