Airborne 10.18.18: PC-24 Expands Reach, Falcon 8X EFVS, Honda Performance Pkg

Also: NetJets Global 7500, New Tower At KGSO, Dassault FalconConnect, Bent Wing Flight Services

The PC-24 is taking hold across the globe... Following the TC issuance last December, Pilatus has delivered twelve aircraft to the United States, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Southern Africa.

By the end of this year, the company expects 23 PC-24s will be in customer operation. The global fleet of in-service PC-24s have accumulated 1200 flight hours, with the fleet leader already clocking up over 620 flight hours. This aircraft, the first serialised production PC-24, is owned and operated by the U.S. fractional ownership company, PlaneSense. The FAA and EASA have both certified the Falcon 8X for an enhanced flight vision system capability that gives operational credit for poor visibility approaches down to 100 ft, greatly improving access to airports in bad weather. The new EFVS capability, provided through the 8X’s FalconEye combined vision system (CVS), was certified for operational use following the completion of a joint EASA/FAA certification campaign earlier this year. EFVS to 100 ft is expected to be approved for the Falcon 2000LX and Falcon 900LX shortly. Honda Aircraft Company announced the addition of a performance package for the HondaJet HA-420. The company's new Advanced Performance Modification Group (APMG) engineered the upgrade, enabling existing HondaJet owners to enhance their current aircraft with several new performance and software features. The APMG Performance Package offers current HondaJet owners the opportunity to implement Honda Aircraft Company's latest performance upgrades on their aircraft; among those are a shorter takeoff field length, an increased maximum takeoff weight and more mission capabilities. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
