PC-24 project

The PC-24 project – the new business jet by Pilatus – is making good progress. Last year, the Board of Directors gave the definite green light to the biggest, fastest and most complex aircraft that Pilatus has ever built. On 21st May this year, the aircraft will be presented to the general public at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva. EBACE 2013

That's awesome, the SPn seemed like it was going to be a great machine.

Can't wait till may. I am surprised its going to be a TWIN. Pilatus is all about singles so far. With my PC12 flying. The 12 with jet engines would be amazing.

Nice! Now to see if that cargo door makes it into the actual production version.

I think that big door on the back will be a great selling feature especially for medivac operators. Unfortunately most operators will just keep rocking their dirt cheap Lear 35's. Even in pax configuration its a pain in the ass shlepping bags over the seats into a small compartment or in other jets in the same category into smaller hold.

interesting comparisons on the Pilatus site with performance specs.
