Pilatus Selects Michelin as Exclusive Tire Supplier for PC-24 Aircraft
Michelin is selected by Pilatus as the exclusive supplier for the Pilatus PC-24, the world's first "Super Versatile Jet." Designed for business, freight, medical evacuation, shuttle or special government mission applications, this business jet can take off and land on paved and unpaved runways, such as grass or gravel, increasing accessibility at nearly 40,000 airports worldwide. Increasing this level of mobility is the Michelin® Air™ aviation tire, which has been selected as the original fitment for both the main and nose tires for the jet.
The bias tire is engineered with highly durable rubber compounds and special sidewall compounds for long-term ozone and UV-light protection. The extra-strong sidewalls are enhanced to provide for nose landing-gear safety. Michelin® Air is designed to provide excellent hydroplane resistance and smooth taxiing.
“We are honored to know Pilatus recognizes Michelin as a trusted partner for its original-equipment needs,” says Robert Sevener, global lead for Michelin general aviation. “The Michelin® Air is designed to provide Pilatus with safe, reliable and durable performance during these take-offs and landings when a smoothly paved runway is not always an option.”
The nose tire PN 019-545-0 and main tire PN 026-674-0 are now available worldwide.
