Pilatus Hands Over Fourth PC-24 to Platoon Aviation

The ceremonial handover of the fourth Super Versatile Jet to Platoon Aviation, the German charter operator, took place at AERO Friedrichshafen, Germany’s leading show for general aviation. The versatile PC-24 stands out for many reasons, not least of which is its unique paint scheme.

The ceremonial handover of the keys to the brand-new PC-24 serial number 266 took place in the presence of Pilatus and Air Alliance, the authorised Pilatus Sales Centre for Germany and Austria. Platoon Aviation, the Hamburg-based company, took delivery of its first PC-24 in spring 2021. The handover brings Platoon’s total fleet to four Super Versatile Jets with more on order.

Platoon Aviation’s business jets serve a constantly growing customer base, offering a unique travel experience which stands out from its competitors in terms of both product and service. The German operator, whose fleet consists exclusively of PC-24s, provides flights to all European destinations. In summer, the company flies to classic holiday destinations such as Olbia, Nice, Majorca and Naples.

Customers are enthusiastic about the PC-24

As a new player in this market, Platoon Aviation knew it would have to stand out with a modern product. “The PC-24 is at the cutting edge of technology and offers passengers the highest level of comfort, be it the light, spacious cabin, the flat floor or the high quality workmanship of the materials”, says Deniz Weissenborn, Managing Director of Platoon Aviation, adding: “This elegant business jet is an excellent match for our modern corporate philosophy”.

Ignaz Gretener, VP General Aviation, is delighted with the rapid growth of the PC-24 fleet at Platoon Aviation and said at the key handover in Friedrichshafen:

“The PC-24 is very popular with charter customers in general and the young, dynamic team at Platoon Aviation knows how to deliver a high-quality service to go with it”.
