Essex Aviation Group is proud to report that it has successfully finalized the acquisition, final completion management and delivery of a new Pilatus PC-24 for a New England-based client.

The client in question is a high net worth pilot who has partnered with Essex Aviation on many projects over the years, including the utilization of other private aircraft. Based on this long-standing relationship, the client retained Essex’s services to oversee the production of a new Pilatus PC-24 aircraft, including specific customizations as outlined within the client’s Purchase Agreement.

In addition to reviewing and monitoring the production of the aircraft, Essex also performed the final review, inspection, test flight, final acceptance and closing on the aircraft from Pilatus.

This is the client’s second Pilatus aircraft; they also own a PC-12. The client intends to retain both aircraft for personal use, as well as for third-party charter. Essex Aviation assisted in negotiating charter agreements for the PC-24 with the client’s selected aircraft charter management company.
