FLYINGGROUP Adds Ninth PC-24 to Management Program

FLYINGGROUP has signed an agreement to add a ninth PC-24 to its fleet management program. The Belgian charter company has operated the Super Versatile Jet by Pilatus since 2020.

Based at Antwerp International Airport, FLYINGGROUP offers its aircraft management and charter services worldwide. Established in 1995, the company currently operates a fleet of over 50 business jets, including nine PC-24s.

The new PC-24 with its unique design – elegant gray lines and Swiss edelweiss flowers – was handed over to FLYINGGROUP on May 16, 2024.

The acquisition of the PC-24 will allow FLYINGGROUP to add even more variety and performance to its fleet for the benefit of passengers and crews alike. At the handover in Stans, Johan van Lokeren, CEO of FLYINGGROUP, expressed his satisfaction with the new addition to his fleet of PC-24s: ‟Our customers love the PC-24! The Super Versatile Jet is the most modern jet in its class and the spacious cabin offers unparalleled comfort. Our first ‘Edelweiss PC-24’ has been in operation for several years, and we’re proud to take delivery of a second, latest generation ‘Edelweiss PC-24’ with a higher payload and even greater range.”

André Zimmermann, VP Business Aviation adds: “In this class, there is no other business jet as versatile or capable as our Super Versatile Jet. People who see the PC-24 for the first time are always amazed at how spacious the cabin is. And the most recent upgrade to the PC-24 delivers yet another reduction in cabin noise. We have no doubt that the passengers of our valued partner, FLYINGGROUP, will enjoy the flexibility and other amenities.”

The PC-24 Super Versatile Jet

The new PC-24 offers an additional 272 kilograms (600 pounds) in payload capacity. The maximum range with six passengers on board has been increased by 370 kilometers (200 nautical miles). With full fuel, and under single pilot operation, the maximum useful load is 596 kilograms. An optimization which delivers significant benefits, particularly in charter operations, since more passengers and luggage can be carried on. The new PC-24 operated by FLYINGGROUP also features an enhanced cabin configuration with “Welcome Center” and additional stowage space in the cabin.

The new PC-24 and the PC-12 NGX will be on display at the EBACE exhibition in Geneva from May 28 to 30, 2024.
