Single-Engine Turboprop's Unique Capabilities Cited
Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd. says a charter operator of its
PC-12 single-engine turboprop, Mayo Aviation, was recently
contracted to move a one-of-a-kind satellite across the USA.
Speaking from Mayo Aviation headquarters in Englewood, CO,
William Mayo III explained, “When we were first contacted to
discuss the specific requirements we quickly realized that the
payload, range and cargo loading capabilities of our PC-12 NG were
a truly unique combination ideally suited to this task.” Mayo
Aviation delivered the sensitive high value space cargo on schedule
despite encountering significant weather en route.
Introduced in 1994, the PC-12 offers the capability to take off
from and land on short, grass airstrips, the largest cabin in this
class at nine seats, and range of up to 1,560 nm. During the last
16 years, over 1,000 PC-12s have been sold worldwide.
Thomas Bosshard, CEO of Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd.
commented, “With more than 30 years of flawless service to
customers across the globe, Mayo Aviation continues their rich
history in the air charter and air medical fields. We are
absolutely delighted to see them expand their fleet with additional
PC-12 aircraft, giving them the ability to accomplish unique
missions such as this.”
Pilatus says its PC-12 NG offers a class leading combination of
efficiency, performance and versatility which has enabled it to
hold exceptional market share despite the continued economic
uncertainty, and calls the single turbine a "cost effective and
highly defensible business travel solution."
