The Swiss PC-24 bizjet was first introduced in 2013 and, five years later, its first deliveries began. This aircraft combines the versatility of a turboprop with the cabin size of a medium light jet and the performance of a light jet. It's an aircraft that simply doesn't fit into any of the existing business jet categories. That’s why the new name – Super Versatile Jet (SVJ) – was created. Its advantage is the possibility of use also on unpaved runways, which opens up an incredible level of mobility.
Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, founded in 1939, is the only Swiss company to develop, manufacture and sell aircraft worldwide. The newest aircraft is the PC-24, the world's first ever business jet for use on short unimproved runways. The company is based in Stans and, with more than 2 000 employees, is one of the largest employers in central Switzerland.
