Posted: 30 Jul 2018 Comair Flight Services (CFS) adds 11th Pc-12 To Its Charter Fleet
During May 2018 CFS accepted delivery of a brand new Pilatus PC-12 NG from the factory on behalf of one of its clients and ferried it to its new home in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The ferry flight was a total of 23.2 hours taking the aircraft (with its proud new owner on board) flawlessly from the factory in Stans, Switzerland to Johannesburg via Heraklion (Crete), Cairo & Luxor (Egypt), Khartoum (Sudan), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe).
CFS operates five Legacy PC-12’s (of which three have already undergone avionics modernisation upgrades) and six PC-12 NG’s, making the latest addition CFS’s eleventh PC-12 being operatedon charter. We have PC-12’s based in Johannesburg (both OR Tambo and Lanseria International),Cape Town and Kimberley.
Justin Reeves, CEO Comair Flight Services, says: “The PC-12 has been an extremely important part of our charter fleet, as the comfortable executive interior combined with its ability to land on
short and unimproved runways makes it a luxurious way of travelling to some of the most remote locations Africa has to offer.”
Aircraft owners continue to show a high level of interest and trust in CFS’s services, and the company expects to expand their charter and managed fleet in the future.
