German charter operator Platoon Aviation received its fourth Pilatus PC-24 late last week at Aero Friedrichshafen, with the ceremonial handover taking place in the presence of officials from Pilatus and Air Alliance. The latter company is the authorized Pilatus sales center for Germany and Austria.

Hamburg-based Platoon Aviation, which has more of the Pilatus light twinjets on order, took delivery of its first PC-24 in first-quarter 2021. Its all-PC-24 fleet provides charter flights to a plethora of European destinations, including popular summer holiday destinations such as Olbia, Nice, Majorca, and Naples, the company said.

“The PC-24 is at the cutting edge of technology and offers passengers the highest level of comfort, be it the spacious cabin, flat floor, or high-quality workmanship of the materials,” said Platoon Aviation managing director Deniz Weissenborn. “This business jet is an excellent match for our modern corporate philosophy.”

Platoon Aviation v-p of general aviation Ignaz Gretener said he is pleased with the rapid growth of the company’s PC-24 fleet. “The PC-24 is popular with charter customers in general and the dynamic team at Platoon Aviation knows how to deliver a high-quality service to go with it,” he added.
