USA - United States of America
Pilatus Aircraft is pleased to announce a major program milestone today with the delivery of the 900th PC-12. At a celebration at the company's US headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado, owner Ron Roma accepted the keys to his new aircraft from Pat Epps, President of Epps Aviation, the factory authorized Pilatus Center for the southeastern United States based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Roma, who has owned no less than four new PC-12s previously, not only has the distinction of owning the milestone aircraft, a brand new 2009 PC-12 NG, but also for taking delivery of his 5th new PC-12 from Pilatus.

Roma explained, "Why do I keep coming back? I've flown PC-12s for many years now on personal flights with my family and for business. I have flown all over the United States and around the world twice in them. The aircraft is extremely solid and reliable. Pilatus engineering just nailed it when they originally designed it and since then they have made very thoughtful improvements over the years. The PC-12 is just a great thing that keeps getting better, and now I'll have the latest with the PC-12 NG."

Thomas Bosshard, President and CEO of Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd., added, "Ron has been a tremendous customer to Pilatus and it's impossible to overstate how much we appreciate his business. The 900th delivery is a very proud moment in the PC-12 program, which is why we are so pleased to deliver this milestone aircraft to him. He will certainly put it to work, and we are anxious to hear about the new adventures he'll have in his PC-12 NG."

Featuring a number of significant improvements over its predecessor, including the 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 provides operators with a cost effective, efficient, and reliable solution to meet transportation needs in today's demanding economy.
