The PC-24 is now fully certification for rough field operations. The initial rough field certification allowed the PC-24 to land on dry sand and gravel, but the complete rough field certification allows the PC-24 to land on additional surfaces, such as grass, wet grass, mud and snow.

Looking at the Grass Runway Supplement, rough numbers on a wet grass runway, almost doubles the takeoff distance; I'd assume because of the accelerate-stop distance.

I wonder how the Swiss were able to find such a poorly maintained runway.

(Sarcasm... I picture Swiss turf runways as golf-course perfect)

At type school right now for the 24, it will be a great short field off airport machine. Super low tire pressure (57psi on nose and 73psi on mains). Big lift dump spoilers, big flaps. Gobs of power. We take delivery March 5th. Can’t wait!

A number of the State of Alaska maintained airports have long gravel runways. This may change the equation for some medevacs when you can go straight from an outlying facility to Seattle for services that may not be available in Anchorage.

Yes, there is one based out of Barrow AK now flying as a medevac. Perfect mission for the plane.

That's the borough owned medevac plane. They seem to fly practice approaches into the gravel strips but don't touch down (yet). It'll be interesting to see whether they make it part of their regular operattions to go into the gravel strips.

The other users I could see would be the oil folks to move staff around or ship critical parts.

If I'm flying my new/old Pilatus it is not landing on what I'm seeing there unless insurance is going to be owning it anyway. Nice but not sure I want to take a chance of FOD being thrown up into those little beasties providing the thrust or rocks against the flaps... Who would. Landing in Alaska and the runways there I've heard about sounds more realistic for regular flying than off piste in the dirt and wet grass Rwy's that may or may not suck you down to oblivion. Now going into Triple Tree or Smiley Creek would certainly be on the need to go list with my favorite co pilot Sidney. I'm headed to the C-store to pick up Power Ball and Millionaire tickets for the drawing this week! Maybe just maybe I can get one then...
