US fractional aircraft ownership firm, PlaneSense (Portsmouth), has been named the PC-24's launch operator with delivery of its first jet scheduled for the last quarter of the current year. The firm said in a statement that it has already agreed to purchase another five aircraft of the type from Pilatus Aircraft (PCH, Buochs).

“We are pleased to build upon our longstanding relationship with Pilatus by adding jets to our fleet, and we highly anticipate the honor of acquiring the first PC-24 in the world," PlaneSense CEO George Antoniadis said in a statement.

Thus far, other operators to have purchased the twin-engine executive jet include: Falcon Aviation Services (two), Jetfly Aviation (four), Royal Flying Doctor Service (three with one option), and U-Haul International (two).
