Western celebrates 25 years of supporting Pilatus
Since 1996 Western Aircraft has been an authorised Pilatus dealer, providing sales and maintenance support. In the coming year it is estimated that Western will provide more than 42,000 hours of service work for Pilatus.

Western Aircraft celebrates 25 years of Pilatus Aircraft sales and maintenance support this year. It has also been a service centre for Pilatus Aircraft for the same length of time and it says it services more than 100 Pilatus Aircraft each year.

Since 1996, Western Aircraft has been an authorised Pilatus dealer. It says its sales team has sold over 350 new and used PC-12 and PC-24 aircraft; it was the first dealership to sell both 100 and 200 new PC-12 aircraft.

“We are humbled and honoured to be celebrating this milestone,” says Phil Winters, vice president of aircraft sales and charter for Western Aircraft. “We wouldn't have been able to accomplish all we have without the support of our longstanding partners at Pilatus and their market-leading products. Additionally, we are extremely appreciative for the customer relationships we have built, and we look forward to the ones we form in the next 25 years.”

Winters adds that as of the end of September 2021, Western Aircraft had sold a total of 262 new PC-12 aircraft, 71 used PC-12s, 11 new PC-24s, 11 used PC-7s, and one new PC-6 aircraft.

“Our 20 factory trained technicians provide world class service when it comes to maintenance and support for PC-12 and PC-24 aircraft,” says Kerry Heiss, director of sales and marketing for Western Aircraft. “Our goal is always to exceed the expectation of our Pilatus customers.”

Heiss adds that this year alone, Western Aircraft will provide more than 42,000 hours to Pilatus service work, including maintenance, structures, avionics and interiors projects.
