Dear friends, it feels like an eternity, but yes, we were able to go on our next adventure. Since covid cut our wings for last year’s planned Americas tour, we decided to do half this year and could go everywhere with one exception.
We now travel with our new “baby” the shiny and new Pilatus PC-24 jet and are therefore able to get around about twice as fast as before and fly substantially further than with the beloved „Töffli“, the Pilatus PC-12 NG.
Our route took us across the North Atlantic and we focused on stops around the Caribbean, the Northern part of Latin and Central America before returning to Switzerland over the Azores, thanks to favorable winds.
Check out all the daily blogs and dive into our adventures.

It all started with curiosity getting to understand regions of the world much better, be it out of private choice or business needs. All of the crew have been travelling extensively.
It takes the combination of character, passion and ability to form a strong team that has the ability to operate united even in the toughest situations and when everything seems to go wrong.

Our new “Baby”
The World’s First Super Versatile Jet, the PC-24 is simply unique. It’s the only aircraft combining the versatility of a turboprop with the cabin size of a medium-light jet, and the performance of a light jet. It’s a plane that simply doesn’t fit into any of the existing business jet categories.
The PC-24 has been engineered to be “off-road” compatible from the beginning. Its outstanding short-field performance – even on unpaved runways – opens up an incredible level of mobility.
With a cruise speed up to 440 kn (815 km/h) and a range of 1’800 mmi (3’334 km) at an altitude up to 45’000 ft (13’716 m) this airplane puts our travel ambitions and ability to reach places into another dimension.
