FANO AIRFIELD, ITALY – The Pilatus PC-24 is a very versatile jet, capable of take off and landing on dirt/grass runways. This was tested at Fano Airfield in Italy. The video shows very rare and awesome footage of the tests, like you’ve probably never seen before.

Fano Airfield in the Marche region of Italy offers optimum test conditions; Aircraft manufacturer Pilatus spent 1 week there in July 2018 testing the PC-24’s landing and take off capabilities on the airfield’s unmade dirt/grass runway.

From the outset, the PC-24 was designed for “off road” operations. Its outstanding performance on short unmade runways opens up an incredible degree of flexibility and new opportunities. The PC-24 provides access to almost twice as many airports worldwide compared to other jets currently available on the market.

The outstanding flexibility of the PC-24 opens the door on an enviable spectrum of possibilities – whether as a business jet, ambulance aircraft or for other special missions. All this makes it a Super Versatile Jet, an aircraft designed to fulfil a wide variety of individual mission profiles.

The Swiss Air Force has recently received its first Pilatus PC-24 ‘Air Force One’ aircraft.
