INTRODUCES PC-24 TWINJET
Pilatus, best known for its PC-12
turboprop, on Tuesday released details of the PC-24, which will be the
company's first jet. At the European Business Aviation Conference and
Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland, board chairman Oscar Schwenk said the

up to 10 seats, or six to eight in executive configuration. Range is up
to 2,243 miles with four passengers, and maximum speed is 425 knots. The
PC-24 is powered by two Williams FJ44-4A turbine engines. The jet

ASKS FOR GOVERNMENT HELP
Business aviation leaders say there
is a "fragile" recovery underway and urged governments all over the
world to amend or establish policies to shore up the industry. On the
eve of the opening of the European Business Aviation Convention and
Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva on Monday, CEOs of major airframers and
business aviation associations urged governments to cut red tape and
