The Pilatus Aircraft PC-24 ‘super versatile’ jet is able to take off and land on very short runways and unpaved strips due in part to its composite-intensive structure, which employs Hexcel’s Composite Materials and Adhesive.

Hexcel’s HexPly 8552 woven prepreg in carbon and glass variants is used to manufacture a number of the aircraft components, including the belly fairing, which is the largest composite structure on the aircraft. Hexcel’s Redux 319 epoxy film adhesive is used for bonding the composite structures.

The PC-24 is in the final stages of its certification programme following the first flight of the third and final test aircraft on 6 March this year. The aircraft is scheduled for certification and entry into service in the fourth quarter of 2017. Pilatus has so far secured 84 orders for the PC-24, which equates to three years of production.
