Goldeck-Flug has been appro­ved as the first car­ri­er in Aus­tria for the com­mer­cial ope­ra­ti­on of sin­gle-engi­ne air­craft of the latest generation.

On 11th Novem­ber 2019 the Aus­tri­an avia­ti­on aut­ho­ri­ty Aus­tro Con­trol gran­ted for the Goldeck-Flug GmbH the com­mer­cial trans­port of pas­sen­gers for air­craft with one engi­ne. The Sin­gle Engi­ne Tur­bi­ne Air Operator’s Cer­ti­fi­ca­te (SET IMC AOC) for the Type Pila­tus PC-12 was appro­ved. Goldeck-Flug can now offer as the first Aus­tri­an air­line the “Swiss pocket­kni­fe” com­mer­cial­ly. The PC-12 NG is known for its excep­tio­nal ope­ra­tio­nal fle­xi­bi­li­ty and effi­ci­en­cy In Janu­a­ry 2019, the first air­craft of this type (OE-EPH) was picked up at Pila­tus in Buochs, Switz­er­land, and used to car­ry out the appro­val pro­cess at Aus­tro Control.

We are real­ly exci­ted to be the first in Aus­tria to offer our cus­to­mers a real game chan­ger with Aus­tro Control’s com­mer­cial  ope­ra­ti­ons clearan­ce. Thanks to the ver­sa­ti­li­ty and effi­ci­en­cy of the PC-12 NGwe bring our cus­to­mers clo­ser to their desti­na­ti­on and save them time. Thanks to Aus­tro Con­trol for its excel­lent coö­pe­ra­ti­on, it is one of the few Euro­pean aut­ho­ri­ties actively sup­por­ting this inno­va­ti­ve approach, so that we can offer com­mer­cial pas­sen­ger air trans­port for sin­gle-engi­ne air­planes. With the appro­val, we can now fly com­mer­cial­ly., sta­ted an exci­ted CEO Gerald Horn-Sachern­egg and CFO Mag. Chris­toph Mosser.

Aus­tro Con­trol, as the aus­tri­an avia­ti­on aut­ho­ri­ty, are a reli­able part­ner of the Aus­tri­an avia­ti­on indus­try in sup­por­ting inno­va­ti­ve solu­ti­ons from avia­ti­on com­pa­nies and to accom­pa­ny them in terms of safe­ty regu­la­ti­ons. In pro­fes­sio­nal coö­pe­ra­ti­on with Goldeck-Flug, the first sin­gle-engi­ne tur­bi­ne-dri­ven air­craft was appro­ved for com­mer­cial flight ope­ra­ti­ons in Aus­tria, says Aus­tro Con­trol Mana­ging Direc­tor Dr. Vale­rie Hackl.

The PC-12 NG can start and land on very short and even unpa­ved run­ways. The PC-12 NG has a cabin with a lar­ger volu­me than most tur­bo­props and mid-sized busi­ness air­crafts. The com­for­ta­ble seats and the prac­ti­cal inte­rior, as well as the uni­que pos­si­bi­li­ty of access to the lug­ga­ge com­part­ment also during the flight offer the most opti­mal con­di­ti­ons. At the begin­ning of Janu­a­ry 2020, Goldeck-Flug took over the second PC-12 NG (OE-EPM).

Sus­taina­bi­li­ty in air traf­fic through sta­te-of-the-art technologies.

In pri­va­te and com­mer­cial air traf­fic, the envi­ron­men­tal aspect is get­ting more and more important. Just as electric cars chan­ge the car indus­try, so does the aero­space indus­try adopt to new tech­no­lo­gies. With modern engi­nes and opti­mi­zed aero­dy­na­mics, the noi­se and fuel con­sump­ti­on are immen­se­ly redu­ced. That’s why Goldeck-Flug reli­es only on the most inno­va­ti­ve types of air­craft, like the new PC-12 NG.

When fly­ing with the newest Pila­tus PC-12 NG from Goldeck-Flug the flight time is about 1 hour from Vien­na to Inns­bruck, 400km air­line, the total con­sump­ti­on is only 280 liters. With 8 pas­sen­gers you use less than 9 liters per pas­sen­ger per 100 km while tra­ve­ling 5 times as fast as a car. The total CO2 emis­si­ons are 800 kg, so 100 kg per pas­sen­ger. A car with a nor­mal com­bus­ti­on engi­ne emits at least 150 kg of CO2 on this rou­te alo­ne. 

The most widespread air­craft of this class desi­gned for 8 pas­sen­gers con­su­mes three times the amount of fuel and emits 2100kg of CO2 with a flight time only 10 mins quicker.

It can be purcha­sed on 3 newest types, the Pila­tus PC-12 NG, the Pila­tus PC-24 and the Cir­rus Visi­on Jet. Goldeck-Flug makes your owners­hip com­ple­te­ly care­free, becau­se owners no lon­ger have to worry about orga­niz­a­ti­on, ope­ra­ti­on, main­ten­an­ce and availability.

In addi­ti­on Goldeck Flug will offer with the Pila­tus PC-24 a new class of Jet exclu­si­ve­ly from Febru­a­ry 2021 as the first
ope­ra­tor in Aus­tria. Goldeck-Flug is also fly­ing a brand-new air­craft on the charter mar­ket, also as the first Aus­tri­an ope­ra­tor:
The Cess­na Cita­ti­on Lati­tu­de, the most modern super mid­si­ze jet from Tex­tron Avia­ti­on, has been on the road for cus­to­mers
sin­ce the begin­ning of July 2019. A second air­craft of this type will be deli­ve­r­ed in June 2020. This means that Goldeck-Flug
has the most modern fleet, with an average age of only one year.
