Rock Hill, South Carolina (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Skytech, Inc., the world’s longest tenured Pilatus PC-12 dealer, is now poised for the next offering from Pilatus – the highly anticipated Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet. CEO of Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, Markus Bucher along with Thomas Bosshard, the President and CEO of U.S. based Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd, Martha Geisshuesler, its CFO, and Daniel Kunz, the Program Manager in charge of Sales and Marketing for the PC-24; toured Skytech’s Rock Hill, South Carolina location and met with key officials in advance of the contract signing.
“This PC-24 appointment is affirmation of the highly successful Dealer Service and Sales model spawned by the PC-12. Skytech’s total control of the customer experience, backed by an exemplary product and product support from Pilatus, allows us to be nimble, responsive and extremely customer-centric.” - John Foster, President of Skytech, Inc.
The PC-24, announced by Pilatus at the 2013 EBACE show in Geneva, features a max cruise speed of 425 knots, service ceiling of 45,000 and range of 1950 nm. First flight is expected in 2014 with initial deliveries slated for 2017. The PC-24, which can operate from runways as short as just 2690 feet, will be delivered with a generous cargo door as standard equipment. No other business jet features a comparable all-internal, pressurized and in-flight accessible baggage compartment. Because it is designed to operate from paved and even unpaved surfaces-the PC-24 can access more than 21,000 airports worldwide.
