The Most Versatile Business Aircraft
The British Isles has the highest number of airfields per square mile of anywhere in Europe, many of which are little more than grass strips and small runways. The PC-12 NG makes it possible to turn this opportunity into tangible and practical versatility, in all the comfort, style, safety and dependability that a Swiss manufacturer can assure. If the Sport Utility Vehicle gave the people of the British Isles motoring versatility Oriens Aviation and Pilatus does the equivalent for the skies.
Not Just For The Fortunate Few
says Edwin Brenninkmeyer
I recently had the opportunity to support the Fly2Help charity’s 10th anniversary flights for those who are in some way disadvantaged in life. I had the pleasure of helping the charity as they added more smiles with their Air Smiles day. At Oxford Airport, students, teachers and parents from the local LVS Oxford School for learners on the autism spectrum, enjoyed flights our new Pilatus PC-12 NG. The special VIP flights, the aircraft cabin was fitted with seating for 8 passengers rather than the usual executive class layout. With the help of Oxford’s air traffic controllers, We were able to provide sightseeing tours of Blenheim Palace and let the students look down on their school. After Oxford we flew to Elstree airport for another Air Smiles Day to fly a family, whose daughter has Cerebral Palsy, to see their home and nearby landmarks.
Alison Pavier, the CEO for Fly2Help, said that they have more flights planned over the next few months. They are very grateful to the volunteers who make our Air Smiles Days happen and hope that their 10th Anniversary will inspire more flyers and aviation supporters to help us change more lives, one flight at a time.
I would urge anyone able to share their own passion for flying to help add air smiles – you will even find one will appear for the whole day on your own!!!
Anyone wishing to nominate beneficiaries, volunteer, provide flights or donate in any way to the charity can
