In a ceremony today at Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd’s facility in Broomfield, Colorado, the Swiss aircraft manufacturer delivered the 1,300th unit of its single engine turboprop PC-12 to California-based airline Surf Air.

Surf Air is the nation’s first private air travel club offering unlimited monthly flights. It provides members – frequent regional business and leisure travelers – with a revolutionary, hassle-free flying experience that saves valuable time and money, all at an exceptional level of service. Operating executive Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, Surf Air flies to and from convenient airports in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles Metro Area, Santa Barbara, Carlsbad/San Diego, Truckee/Lake Tahoe, and Las Vegas with additional destinations to follow.

Pilatus’ 1,300th PC-12 NG is Surf Air’s 4th new PC-12 NG delivery since placing an order last fall for 15 PC-12 NG aircraft, with options for an additional 50.

Thomas Bosshard, President and CEO of Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd stated:

“We are delighted that this milestone aircraft is going into service with Surf Air. Due to its key capabilities, its large cabin and continual development, demand for the PC-12 NG remains very high around the world. Companies like Surf Air innovate around a travel model that opens access to the benefits of business aviation to many more individuals and companies.”

Jeff Potter, President and CEO of Surf Air added:

“We are proud to partner with Pilatus, and honored to take delivery today of their 1,300th PC-12. The efficiency, comfort, and performance of the PC-12 NG are key attributes that help make the Surf Air business model work so well. We are looking forward to our next delivery and continuing to expand our unique service.”
