The Pilatus PC-24 “Super Versatile Jet” is simply different.  It’s the only aircraft combining the versatility of a turboprop with the cabin size of a medium-light jet, with the performance and cost of a light jet.  

It has the largest cabin in its class, cruises at 506 mph and most unique of all, it has the ability to land on almost any landing strip.  With its incredibly low stall speed and robust engineering the PC-24 is as comfortable on dirt and gravel as it is on pavement, the only non-military grade light jet with this capability. 

The PC-24’s interior is uniquely modular, allowing the cabin configuration to be quickly reconfigured to adapt to the specific needs of any operation.  High quality wood veneer cabinetry and leather executive seats in the cabin provide passengers with the ultimate luxury experience while still being completely configurable.  The cabin’s seats, cabinets, partitions can be removed or added as needed for each mission, an option not found in many other business jets.  The PC-24 has a spacious 501 cubic foot flat floor cabin.  The same airplane that transports 8 executives in complete comfort to business meetings during the week, is easily configured to haul the family’s weekend camping gear and bikes to a remote airstrip in the mountains. 

The pallet-sized cargo door, standard on every PC-24 aircraft, can handle just about anything you can think of.  The dimensions of the cargo door are 4 feet 1 inches by 4 feet 3 inches.  The overall volume of the cargo area provides endless options for loading and unloading bulky items previously thought to be impossible to transport in a jet in this category.  Loaded cargo is always accessible in the main cabin and stored in pressurized, temperature-controlled comfort.  

The PC-24 can utilize over 10,000 paved and short field airports around the world that were previously thought to be unreachable by a business jet.  Additionally, there are nearly 20,000 airports that feature unpaved surfaces, grass and gravel, that are also accessible for the PC-24, landing closer to your final destination. 

The PC-24 is certified for single pilot operations which provides the operator with maximum flexibility and minimum crew staffing requirements.  The cockpit features an avionics suite which is also used in much larger corporate aircraft.  Pilatus partnered with Honeywell to create the Advanced Cockpit Environment (ACE) which sets the standard for high-tech simplicity.  It has been specifically tailored to the PC-24 so that a sophisticated and complex aircraft can be easily managed by one pilot.    

Pilatus engineered the PC-24 with operating costs in mind.  For example, Pilatus decided to eliminate the headache of a stand-alone auxiliary power unit (APU) by introducing a new concept with the Williams engine. This concept is trademarked as ‘Quiet Power Mode’ or ‘QPM’.  While in Quiet Power Mode, the Williams engine can now run at a “sub-idle” mode which performs all of the traditional functions of an APU without the noise, cost and hassle associated with a traditional APU.  Innovations like this have created an airplane that is almost twice the size as any aircraft in its category yet it has substantially lower operating cost when compared to its nearest competitor.             

The Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile jet is the one aircraft that can accomplish all of the complex missions that the business world requires.  The PC-24 is the ultimate business aircraft.
