PlaneSense expands its Pilatus PC-24 private jet fleet

The fractional operator sells shares on its Pilatus PC-12 and now expanding PC-24 fleet

While most people would probably know the nation’s two biggest fractional operators are NetJets and Flexjet, they might be hard-pressed to name number three. That would be New Hampshire-based PlaneSense. And while the two leaders battle it out with Gulfstream G650s and the Global Express, PlaneSense continues to pursue the short to mid-range flight market. Today it announced it has taken delivery of its third Pilatus PC-24, a twin-jet with a range of 2,000 nautical miles, and a takeoff distance of just 2,930 feet, including gravel and grass runways.

Fractional share operator PlaneSense says there are no jet cards in its future

PlaneSense is launching its first jet fractional share program, but here’s why there will be no jet cards

 

While New Hampshire based fractional share provider PlaneSense recently moved into the jet age by taking delivery of its first Pilatus PC-24 twin-engine jet, don’t expect the company to begin offering jet cards. Last year, PlaneSense added four Nextant 400XTi jets as a prelude to its first jet fractional program that is being built around the six PC-24s coming online by the end of next year.

Fractional share provider PlaneSense, Inc., received of the world’s first Pilatus PC-24 jet at its headquarters in Portsmouth, New Hampshire today. It marks the company’s move into expanded jet products having built its business on the back of the PC-12 turboprop. It also offers the Nextant 400 XTi. PlaneSense is expecting a total of six PC-24 jets by end of 2019, the largest order received by Pilatus in its current order book.
