The Pilatus Sales Achievement Award was presented to KCAC for its sales performance in 2022. KCAC earned this honour by having the highest volume of delivered aircraft of any worldwide Pilatus authorised sales centre.
The Pilatus Class Center Spirit Award recognises an organisation that fully embodies Pilatus Class attitudes and behaviours in every aspect of its operations.

KCAC Aviation, a US Pilatus authorised sales and service centre headquartered in Olathe, Kansas, has been presented with two awards from Pilatus Business Aircraft during the Swiss aircraft manufacturer's annual sales meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. KCAC received both the Pilatus Class Center Spirit Award as well as the Pilatus Sales Achievement Award.

The Pilatus Class Center Spirit Award recognises an organisation that fully embodies Pilatus Class attitudes and behaviours in every aspect of its operations, from sales and marketing all the way through to pilot training. The recipient is chosen not only for its commitment to representing Pilatus, but also for creating a positive experience for its customers.

The Pilatus Sales Achievement Award was presented to KCAC for its outstanding sales performance in 2022. KCAC earned this honour by having the highest volume of delivered aircraft of any worldwide Pilatus authorised sales centre.

“We are pleased to recognise KCAC Aviation for its outstanding sales performance as well as its commitment to consistently demonstrating the values and principles that define Pilatus Class,” says Thomas Bosshard, president and CEO of Pilatus Business Aircraft. “KCAC's team consistently goes above and beyond to provide Pilatus customers with the highest level of service and support, and this award is a testament to its hard work and dedication.”
