PlaneSense (Portsmouth) has taken delivery of its first, and the world's first PC-24. N124AF (msn 101) was handed over to the US fractional ownership specialist during a ceremony at Denver Rocky Mountain Airport, Colorado, on Wednesday, February 7.

PlaneSense, which is expecting a further five PC-24s to deliver from Pilatus Aircraft (PCH, Buochs), plans to take advantage of the type’s unique cargo door, short field performance, and ability to land on grass runways to offer clients access to locations, such as in The Bahamas, where traditional business jets are impractical.

PlaneSense is an existing Pilatus operator employing a fleet of thirty-six PC-12 turboprops.
