SKYTECH, INC. TAKES DELIVERY OF FIRST PC-24 FROM PILATUS BUSINESS AIRCRAFT LTD’S NEW BROOMFIELD, COLORADO FACILITY
Broomfield, Colorado, USA 25 July 2018
In a ceremony at Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd.’s new customer delivery and aircraft completion facility in Broomfield, Colorado, Skytech, Inc., an Authorized Pilatus Sales and Service Center, accepted delivery of Pilatus PC-24, serial number 107. It is the first PC-24 delivered from Pilatus’ new facility.
Skytech, Inc., with bases in Westminster, Maryland and Rock Hill, South Carolina, sells and services Pilatus aircraft in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. Skytech, Inc. is the oldest Authorized Pilatus Dealer in the world, having been with the program from the introduction of the PC-12.
John Foster, President of Skytech, Inc., was in attendance for the delivery and said: “This aircraft sets the bar for the segment – although a business jet with a cargo door and auxiliary power operating on a dirt strip is arguably incomparable – and exceeds expectations at every available opportunity. Everyone’s initial reaction to the PC-24 is how impressively large an aircraft it is. That affords an extremely comfortable and quiet cabin that, when paired with the legendary performance and reliability of a Pilatus, will undoubtedly turn heads in the industry. The Pilatus PC-12 has become a fixture around the globe, and the PC-24 is destined for the same success. We’re anxious to show it to our existing and future customers.”
Skytech, Inc. flight crews are completing their initial flight familiarization after successfully achieving Type-Ratings earlier in 2018 from FlightSafety International. Skytech, Inc. maintenance facilities are fully prepared with trained technicians, tooling and parts to continue the award-winning service synonymous with the Pilatus brand. PC-24 serial number 107 will ultimately be added to Skytech Travel LLC’s charter certificate and utilized as a demonstrator to introduce the jet to existing position holders and prospective owners in advance of a future re-opening of the PC-24 order book.
