  1. Another Milestone In PC-24 Unpaved Strip Testing
    As many of our readers know the Pilatus PC-24 is currently undergoing certification tests for operation on unpaved surfaces. In fact the aircraft has already been approved for gravel and dirt surfaces by the FAA and EASA. The next notch in the unpaved runway tests is the ability to operate from grass strips. The aircraft proved this by landing at the Goodwood Aerodrome in England in time for the Festival of Speed (July 4th to 7th).
  2. This is a major achievement as it marks the first time any business jet has landed on the grass surface at Goodwood. The Pilatus PC-24 isn't called the Super Versatile jet for no reason. It also has steep-approach certification which allows it to be able to operate into steep-approach category airports such as London City (LCY). As a result of the wide scope of landing surfaces that the PC-24 can operate from it opens up itself to a myriad of different customers.
