Swiss Aviation Consulting was mandated by a Swiss client to source a Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet manufactured in Switzerland to be registered, based and operated in Switzerland.
The acquired aircraft is the Pilatus demonstrator. It continues to be accessible for potential buyers of a new Pilatus PC-24. Enrolled in a Swiss Air Operator Certificate the aircraft is also available for charter. This dual use required to apply the recently released rules for Mixed Operations (EASA ORO.GEN.310) to a business aircraft for the first time.
SAC advised the client on all aspects (operations, legal structure, financing, tax) of this demanding transaction combining SAC’s internal know-how with select external specialists. SAC facilitated the interaction of the OEM, lender, operator and the authorities. SAC continues to support the client as his representative monitoring the asset, the contractual framework and the operational cost on a monthly basis.
