Pilatus announces additional certifications for the PC-12 NG

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is pleased to announce the receipt of additional country certifications for the PC-12 NG. Approvals by TC (Transport Canada), CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority, Australia) and SACAA (South African Civil Aviation Authority) signal the commencement of PC-12 NG deliveries to these countries. In March of 2008 Pilatus received both EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) certification, proving that the PC-12 NG was ready to build upon the important legacy of its predecessor. It is expected that numerous other country approvals will follow shortly.

Speaking from Pilatus headquarters in Stans, Switzerland, Oscar J. Schwenk, President of Pilatus Aircraft Ltd commented: “We are delighted that these certifications were achieved in a timely manner and they are a testament to the vigorous pursuit of excellence for which Pilatus has become well known. The PC-12 is fundamentally one of the greatest aircraft ever built and we are proud that aviation authorities around the world recognise this through their certification processes.”

Featuring a number of significant improvements over its predecessor, including a fully integrated Honeywell Primus Apex avionics system, a completely new cockpit designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA, and a more powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A engine, the PC-12 NG once again sets the benchmark in this important market sector. As aircraft owners and operators strive to operate as competitively as possible, the PC-12’s versatility and low direct operating costs are more relevant than ever before. These certifications allow more customers to seriously consider the benefits of the PC-12 NG.

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd was founded in 1939 and is currently the world market leader in the manufacture and sale of single-engine turboprop aircraft. It is the only Swiss company that develops and produces private and training aircraft. At the headquarters in Stans, Switzerland, Pilatus is licensed to maintain and perform upgrades on a variety of aircraft. This service is complemented by three independent subsidiaries in Altenrhein (Switzerland), in Broomfield (Colorado, USA) and Adelaide (Australia). With over 1200 employees at its headquarters, Pilatus is one of the largest employers in Central Switzerland.
