The third largest fractional share provider is putting a push into the jet age.
While the popular single-engine Pilatus PC-12 has powered PlaneSense to a position as the third largest fractional share and lease operator in North America, its twin jet brother the PC-24 will likely push the company’s primary service area further west, probably at some point the Pacific Ocean. That day is likely getting loser with the arrival of its second PC-24 which the company said was delivered today.
‘We are thrilled to add another Pilatus PC-24 jet to the PlaneSense program fleet,” said George Antoniadis, President and CEO, PlaneSense, Inc. in a press release received by Private Jet Card Comparisons. He continued, “Our clients have greatly enjoyed the expansive cabin and the conveniences afforded by jet travel. This jet, and each consecutive aircraft, will allow us to meet the growing demand for more PC-24 shares.”
PlaneSense’s first PC-24 has been flying
The program’s third PC-24 jet, N126AF, is expected to arrive in March 2019. The remaining three jets in PlaneSense’s initial order are expected to arrive in the fall of 2019 and early 2020.
PlaneSense serves the United States, Canada, Bermuda, The Bahamas, Caribbean, and Central America. In 2018 it clocked 35,047 hours of flight time ranking behind NetJets and Flexjet and ahead of Flight Options and Airshare.
