Belgium-based European Aircraft Private Club (EAPC) has acquired a Pilatus PC-12 from Switzerland's RUAG Aviation. The operator has been active in aircraft management for nearly two years, and will use the aircraft to supplement its existing Extra 500. Ceo Denis Petitfrère says: “The PC-12 really fits our needs. Its combination of 1.5 tonne loading capacity, ability to carry up to eight passengers and high cruise speed makes it the perfect aircraft for most private or business trips. It can land at 2,200 airports in Europe, which is far more than jets can. This enables us to carry our members a lot closer to their final destination.”

The acquisition allows EAPC's customers to select between the Extra 500 or PC-12, depending on individual requirements. “Customers benefit from increased flexibility, as well as from the higher loading capacity, range and cruise speed of the PC-12,” continues Petitfrère.

RUAG Aviation is the authorised PC-12 dealer for France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Monaco, Malta, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. The company offers comprehensive turnkey solutions for the PC-12, including aircraft sales, financing, corporate structuring, tax structuring, importation and aircraft management.
