WestAir First To Offer PC-24 for Charter in U.S.

Western Aircraft has added a Pilatus PC-24 to its WestAir division, which reportedly makes it the first company in the U.S. to offer the Swiss-built business jet for charter. “This aircraft has superior speed, range, and runway performance,” said Phil Winters, Western Aircraft's vice president of aircraft sales and charter management. “It is also the first business jet in the world that has a standard pallet-sized cargo door, making the loading of even the bulkiest of items, such as a kayak, easy.”
