PILATUS PC-24 BUSINESS JET LANDS ON GRASS RUNWAY
GOODWOOD, ENGLAND – A PC-24 landed on a grass runway in Goodwood last week for the legendary Festival of Speed. The Pilatus PC-24 is the first ever business jet to land at this field.
The PC-24 landed on the grass runway at Goodwood Aerodrome and was on display for the general public to admire throughout the Festival of Speed from 4 to 7 July 2019.
In April of this year, the very first PC-24 of the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) arrived in Australia.
The Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet is the first business jet worldwide designed to take off and land on very short or unpaved runways, and to come with a cargo door as standard. It also boasts an extremely spacious cabin whose interior can easily be adapted to personal requirements.
The outstanding flexibility of the PC-24 opens the door on an enviable spectrum of possibilities – whether as a business jet or ambulance aircraft. All this makes it a Super Versatile Jet, an aircraft designed to fulfil a wide variety of individual mission profiles.
