Tags: EBACE, Pilatus PC12
The major exhibition for business aviation in Europe, EBACE, takes place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 4-6 May 2010, and I’m looking forward to being there. With the world economy still in the doldrums to a large extent, it will be interesting to pick up the mood of the event with regard to business aircraft sales. Pilatus – the Swiss home team, as it were, at EBACE - are celebrating record sales of the PC12 in 2009, which shows how the turboprop remains a big player in the business aviation sector. Pilatus remain critical of unsupportive banks, but are already looking hopeful for further PC12 sales in 2010.
 
More ambitious business jet charter operators are appearing in Europe, such as Flair Jet, operating the Phenom 100, and Smart Air on the horizon planning to fly the Diamond D-Jet when it receives certification later this year. I’ll be fascinated to find out what the thoughts of these companies are!
