With ongoing travel restrictions preventing an in-person worldwide tour of its PC-24 twinjet, Pilatus instead has launched a three-part “video tour” series that will be published on the Swiss manufacturer’s YouTube channel. The videos will provide detailed aircraft tours, with the first installment, already released, including a walk-around by company test pilot Matthew “Fish” Hartkop, who explains the features and benefits of the light jet’s design, systems, and performance.
To be released on August 6, the second installment will provide an in-depth look at the aircraft’s “advanced cockpit environment,” with a discussion on technologies, performance, and flying qualities. A final video, to be released August 13, will showcase the interior with Pilatus project manager Marta Esquer Cerezo highlighting the aircraft’s comfort and size, flat floor, cargo area, and seating layout. Cerezo also discusses the benefits of the forward lavatory.
“Interest in seeing the PC-24 first-hand has been tremendous, and we wish we could host everyone personally here at the factory in Switzerland,” said Pilatus CEO Markus Bucher. “Until we get that opportunity, this video tour is the next best alternative.”
