PC-24 handed over to to Peter Brabeck-Letmathe

Pilatus

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, former Chairman and CEO of the Nestlé Group, accepted the keys to his PC-24, serial number 104. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe is one of the very first owners to fly the brand-new Swiss business jet.

Businessman and experienced pilot Peter Brabeck-Letmathe personally took delivery of his PC-24, ordered in 2013, from Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman of Pilatus, at a handover ceremony in Stans.

Flying is his big passion – he has logged over 3000 hours so far. Brabeck-Letmathe attracted attention a year ago with the announcement that his new PC-24 would be purchased by his company, Brabair, and would be made available to private and business travellers in Europe, together with his existing PC-12 NG, within a newly founded “Flying Club 24”.

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe commented as follows at the handover:

“It’s been worth the wait, my serial number 104 looks just fantastic! I’ve been totally convinced by the PC-24 project since the earliest days. It’s a logical continuation of the Pilatus product family. The cockpit environment is exceptional within this category and the quality of the workmanship is exactly as one would expect from a Swiss product. I’m really looking forward to taking the pilot’s seat and getting familiar with the unique capabilities of my Super Versatile Jet.”

The PC-24 will be based in Sion. The Brabair Super Versatile Jet will carry seven passengers plus pilot in a luxurious, ergonomic environment. The large cargo door which comes as standard allows easy loading and unloading of large items of luggage and bulky cargo. The PC-24’s short takeoff and landing capabilities also open up new possibilities in terms of arriving closer to the final destination, thereby saving valuable time.

Oscar J. Schwenk commented on Peter Brabeck’s PC-24 as follows:

“I’m delighted that such well-known personalities are happy to place their trust in our aircraft. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe has flown our single-engine PC-12 NG for a long time and will now operate a PC-24 in parallel. The fact that he opted for a brand-new, very recently certified PC-24 speaks for itself. I’m confident that he will be as happy with the PC-24 as we are. I look forward to receiving his feedback!”
