Western Aircraft becomes first in US to add PC-24 to its charter fleet

Western Aircraft has added a Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet to WestAir Charter’s Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR) Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate.

“We are extremely excited to be the first in the country to offer this amazing jet for charter,” said Western Aircraft’s Vice President of Aircraft Sales and Charter Management Phil Winters. “This aircraft has superior speed, range and runway performance. It is also the first business jet in the world that has a standard pallet-sized cargo door, making the loading of even the bulkiest of items, such as a kayak, easy. It’s a true benefit for our charter customers.”

In addition to the PC-24’s charter function, WestAir Charter is also handling the jet’s aircraft management, ensuring that all aspects of operation and safety are handled from maintenance to flight crew to FAA regulatory compliance.

Western has the most successful Pilatus dealership in the world; its team has vast experience in the management and operation of Pilatus aircraft, and its MRO is one of the largest Pilatus Authorised Service Centres in North America.

WestAir Charter provides service to more than 5,000 airports in the United States, Mexico and Canada with aircraft based in Idaho, Washington and California.
