KCAC Aviation, an Authorized Pilatus Sales and Service Center, delivered the first Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet to a customer in the Midwest. In a ceremony at their facility in Olathe, Kansas, KCAC Aviation delivered PC-24 serial number 110 to a customer based in Illinois. It is the tenth production delivery of the newly certified Super Versatile Jet worldwide.
Mark Riley, General Manager for KCAC Aviation commented: “We are excited to deliver the first Pilatus PC-24 to a customer in the Midwest. Our customer purchased the airplane primarily for its unimproved runway performance for operations on dirt or grass runways, an operation most jet aircraft cannot do. There is really nothing else like the PC-24 in the market today.”
Superior customer service has been a key part of the Pilatus service network’s achievement of 17 consecutive years of number-one ranked customer support, as rated by independent industry surveys. KCAC Aviation’s level of customer service has been an important element in achieving that ranking.
Riley continued: “Everyone’s reaction to the airplane is just how large the cabin is for a mid-size aircraft. A real game changer has arrived and demand for the airplane has been simply amazing. With the legendary performance and reliability of a Pilatus, this will be the first of many PC-24s delivered in our territory.”
KCAC Aviation pilot and maintenance personnel have been through type-specific training, and all special support tooling and spare parts for the PC-24 are already in inventory.
