TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Pilatus Centre Canada is pleased to
announce the delivery of a brand new Pilatus PC-12 NG to American Iron
and Metal (AIM), an established operator in Montreal, Quebec.
"AIM engaged in extensive research and ultimately determined that the
Pilatus PC-12 was the best aircraft to service their varied needs,"
said Stan Kuliavas, Director of Sales at Pilatus Centre Canada.
According to David Wickware, Director of Aviation at AIM, reasons for
selecting the PC-12 included "cabin size, comfort, a robust and
advanced avionics suite, but most of all, the economies both in
purchase price as well as low operational costs." Wickware goes on to
say that "[the Pilatus PC-12] can economically complete our 1-2 hour
range trips and short field sorties. It can transport 6-8 people

that allows us to use the leverage of business aviation deeper into the
Ron Black, Chief Operating Officer at AIM, states, "we really like the
Pilatus PC-12 as it allows us to access locations we previously could
not reach efficiently, and do so in a very safe manner with great
operating economics. We see the PC-12 as a complimentary addition to
our current fleet of a helicopter and large jet."
"Canada is home to almost ten percent of the worldwide fleet of
PC-12's," says Kuliavas, "a testament to the PC-12's ability to
efficiently service Canada's vast geography."
