Plane Sense is launch customer of the new go almost anywhere biz jet. Flight Safety is gearing up. For new trainees for late October. Mid Nov2017
Last winters cold wx testing in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Went very well with overnite Temps reaching down to a frosty -37c. So program nearly complete. Medivacs will never be the same with this awesome bird in the sky the Australian royal flying doctors is also on the list of customers. Kudos Pilatus.
Makes ya wonder if those smart engineers are already thinking of. Supersonic /hypersonic biz jet that can Land and take off like the 24. Sure would give new meaning to the Ole phrase. Take a sales meeting. Fly safe
I have all the respect in the world for pilatus. Great company. I was very impressed by how much work is done in house. They contract out far far less than any of the big manufacturers. So much is done in their factory in Stans. And they are very dedicated to their employees. Many executives that in upper management now started at pilatus out of technical school.bushwings wrote:I just remember all the critics when people started flying the PC12 like a bush plane. I'm willing to give Pilatus some credit based on past performance when they claim to have a 'bush' jet.
But, I was just a little surprised that none of the FTV's had operated off gravel as of July.
