As the Boutsen Aviation team prepares to head off to the MEBAA show in Dubai this coming weekend, it is celebrating not one but two sales – bringing the total number of transactions to 415.

The sales team is certainly flying high this year, the company said, having enjoyed a successful 2022 which ends on a particularly high note with the sale of two Pilatus PC-24s – the ‘world’s first-ever super versatile jet’.

Dominique Trinquet, President of Boutsen Aviation, said: “Switzerland is a country in the heart of Europe, a neighbour of France and is known amongst other things for its excellence in aeronautical production. For the second time in the history of Boutsen Aviation, we are proud to have achieved another transaction with the Swiss Government. It reminds me of our first transaction in 2013 which was orchestrated like a Swiss Army knife. We have repeated this great experience with their Pilatus PC24 in mint condition. Thanks to the whole team of Armasuisse…

“Our industry is very active at the moment, particularly in Europe, despite the challenging global events we are currently experiencing,” Dominique Trinquet added.

Margaux Bodard, Sales Manager Western Europe, said she was “very happy to have been able to follow this transaction” which is the third since she arrived in Monaco earlier this year. Her first sale was a Falcon 7X, quickly followed by a Gulfstream G650, and now a PC-24. “It definitely bodes well for 2023,” Margaux added.

Dominique and Margaux are planning to continue the celebrations in Dubai with the rest of the team, including founder and chairman Thierry Boutsen, when they regroup at MEBAA (Middle East Business Aviation Association), from December 6 to 8.

“I am extremely proud of the whole Boutsen Aviation team who have achieved fantastic results this year. We are looking forward to raising a glass together over the next few days to toast the company’s success, and to plan for what we hope will be an equally rewarding 2023,” Thierry Boutsen concluded.
