P-750 XSTOL Designed To Operate In Some Of The World's Most Rugged Conditions

Oshkosh AirVenture 2009 May Feel A Little Tame By Comparison

The Pacific Aerospace P-750 XSTOL ten seat utility aircraft is having a major impact on operators' profitability in some of the most demanding locations imaginable.

In Papua New Guinea, for instance the PT6-34 powered turboprop lets operations like Adventist Aviation to reach remote communities that were previously unaccessible.  They can now reach the strips with twice as many passengers and three times the cargo load than they could with other aircraft.
 
Pacific Aerospace in New Zealand called on 55 years of experience when developing the XSTOL. Since achieving full FAA (2004) and EASA (2006) certification Pacific Aerospace has seen the P-750 out perform its competition in the STOL market.  "For that reason we wanted to differentiate ourselves from our competition and we have created a new product category that we have called 'XSTOL' for Extreme Short Take Off and Landing" said Mr Camp.  "What's more we've defined XSTOL as an aircraft that can land and take off in less than 800ft carrying a load greater than its own empty weight.  The P-750 XSTOL is the only aircraft that can do that."
 

 
With five XSTOL's already operating in Papua New Guinea and another five on contract to the United Nations World Food Program in Chad, Sudan and D.R. Congo, and the first recently delivered to Nepal the XSTOL is proving its strength, reliability and payload performance in some very demanding locations.

With a very specific "shopping list" Roger Millist, CEO of Adventist Aviation in PNG found there was not a lot of certified aircraft available which met all of his criteria.  "We operate into approximately 300 remote bush strips throughout PNG ranging from 400 to 800m some with up to 18% slopes."

After operating the XSTOL sine early 2007 he says "I can honestly say the P-750 XSTOL has met and exceeded all our expectations and confirms daily our choice.  There is no airstrip in the country that we cannot operate the XSTOL into."

With a maximum payload of almost two tons, Adventist Aviation averages about 1,200kg (2,640lbs) of cargo from some very short and very rough, highland bush strips as well as carrying 90 to 120 minutes of fuel and sixty minutes reserve at all times due to the vagaries of the weather.
  
Pacific Aerospace is exhibiting the P-750 XSTOL at Oshkosh for the first time this year at location 363. "This is to introduce the XSTOL to the many missionary and relief work aviation companies and show them an aircraft that will get their work done without compromise on payload, performance and reliability" said Mr Camp.
