Pilatus Delivers the 1000th PC-12


Media Release
Stans, July 15, 2010

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd announced today that it has completed the delivery of the 1000th PC-12 at a special ceremony at its wholly owned subsidiary Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd in Broomfield, Colorado.

Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman and CEO of Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, marking the significance of the occasion, said “The traditional Pilatus qualities of high performance, rugged durability, versatility, and superior operation economics have been the foundation of every PC-12 we build. Today’s PC-12 NG, represented by the 1000th example here, is generations ahead of the first one Pilatus delivered back in 1994. But it still holds to these same principles that have made the PC-12 program such a great success.”

The milestone aircraft was handed over to its new owner, Mr. David Fountain from Halifax, Nova Scotia, who is now a three-time PC-12 owner. A private investor by trade, he plans to fly his new PC-12 himself as he had with his two previous PC-12s. He purchased all three aircraft from V. Kelner Pilatus Center, the exclusive Pilatus Sales and Service Center for Canada located in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Having a record year in 2009 with 100 PC-12 NG deliveries, Pilatus celebrated the delivery of the 900th PC-12 just last year. Since its introduction in 1994, the PC-12 has steadily grown in sales and success to become one of the top selling turbine-powered business aircraft in the world.

The versatile PC-12 performs many roles worldwide, including executive transport, commuter, air ambulance, police and border surveillance, cargo, incident response, military liaison, and regional airliner. The PC-12 fleet has amassed more than 2.6 million flight hours of operating experience, including thousands of hours in some of the harshest environments.

“There is no other aircraft in the world like the PC-12” said Mr. Fountain. “The size, speed, range, and the Swiss quality of the aircraft are exceptional, and it is a joy to fly.”

Wings of Freedom Tour


*Coming to Metro – July 7-9*

The Collings Foundation is bringing the Wings of Freedom Tour, which showcases three fully restored WWII Bomber Aircraft, to the Metro Airport Terminal ramp on July 7th to 9th. These aircraft are the 1944 vintage Consolidate B-24J Liberator, the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress “Nine-O-Nine” and the TP-51C “Betty Jane” Mustang.

The "Wings of Freedom Tour" has two goals: to honor our veterans--recognizing their sacrifices so we may enjoy our freedom; and to educate the visitors, especially younger Americans, about our national history and heritage. The Foundation encourages people to tour the planes, talk to the veterans who come to visit the aircraft, and participate in a "flight experience”. In nineteen years, the tour has made more than 2,172 visits to airports across the United States and Alaska. While the exact number of visitors is difficult to gauge, it is estimated that between 3 and 4 million people see these warbirds annually.

Walk through tours of all the aircraft are $12 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under. WWII Veterans get into the ground tours at no charge. Flight experiences donation are $425 per person aboard the B-17 or B-24. Flight training in the P-51 is $2200 for a half hour flight and $3200 for a full hour. All participants will get the chance to feel what it was like to fly one of the most legendary fighters of WWII.
