After long months of work, Get1Jet has just received its air operator’s certificate (AOC) allowing it to start public transport operations of passengers and freight with its Pilatus PC-12 NG under the new European regulation CAT SET-IMC. The new business aviation company recently based at Le Castellet will transport passengers both individuals and professionals through charter flights around France and Europe. According to the operator, Get1Jet’s added value stems primarily from its aircraft, a Pilatus PC-12NG. Versatile and with strong performance, the Pilatus PC-12 NG has a spacious cabin for transporting six passengers in VIP configuration or eight passengers in charter configuration with a range of over 3,000 kilometers. The aircraft is also equipped with a free internet connection system offering passengers the possibility to check their emails and websites at low speed. The single engine aircraft can be used to connect airfields that are not served by regular commercial airlines and can land at over 3,000 airports across Europe, on a paved runway or unpaved airfields. Ignaz Gretener, Vice President of Pilatus’ General Aviation business unit stated that Get1Jet receiving the AOC highlights “the relevance of the Get1Jet offer that has managed to accurately identify the opportunities provided by this new regulation in the Public Transport domain”.
