Pilatus 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.
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 has done 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 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.
