“We love Oshkosh. Not only is it the best venue in the world to highlight the unique aircraft that Pilatus build, but it gives us a great opportunity to meet with customers, prospects and enthusiasts from around the globe. And, it’s just a lot of fun to be here, and remind ourselves why we enjoy working in this great industry.” stated Tom Aniello, Vice President of Marketing for Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd. 

With the ability to operate from very short and even unpaved runway surfaces, Pilatus highlights the best-selling PC-12 NG turboprop and the PC-24 Super Versatile Jet with the exhibit theme “Gravel, Grass and Dirt" with unique ability to operate from very short and even unpaved runway surfaces,

The 67TH annual EAA AirVenture show, commonly known simply as “Oshkosh”, is expected to draw more than 500,000 aviation enthusiasts and 10,000 aircraft from 80 countries to this small Wisconsin town. What started as a grass roots gathering of just of few light aircraft designers and manufacturers in 1953, is today the world’s largest aviation gathering. This is exactly why Pilatus is excited to be showcasing the business aviation industry’s top selling model, the PC-12 NG single-engine turboprop, and the company’s new PC-24 Super Versatile Jet.

Exhibition Theme “Gravel, Grass and Dirt”

Since Oshkosh is a celebration of aviation, and celebrations are meant to be fun, each year the Pilatus marketing team comes up with a creative theme for the show. This year, to highlight the unique unpaved runway capabilities of both the PC-12 NG and the PC-24, the Pilatus exhibit will feature three distinctive “landing tracks” of gravel, grass and dirt, which are all surfaces that the aircraft were developed to operate from. A large video wall will also display a number of exciting videos of unimproved runway operations with the PC-24 that have gone viral on social media over the last year.

Aniello continued: “We welcome all Pilatus owners, pilots, and enthusiasts to join us at Oshkosh to take a look at the PC-12 NG and the new PC-24. Our exhibit is open to all, and we look forward to sharing some Pilatus Class hospitality with our Pilatus family and friends.”
