Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) July 28, 2014
Top executives from PlaneSense, Inc. (PlaneSense) recently traveled to Pratt & Whitney Canada headquarters in Longueuil, Quebec, to celebrate the companies’ dual successes this year. The PlaneSense® program purchased its 50th Pilatus PC-12 and 50th Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A engine in Mid-May.
Simultaneously, Pratt & Whitney Canada is currently celebrating the PT6’s 50th year in flight. This headquarter visit also included a tour of the facility, an engine manufacturing presentation, and a speech to plant employees by PlaneSense, Inc. President and CEO, George Antoniadis, regarding confidence and quality.
“Over the years, Pratt & Whitney Canada has delivered excellent products and very high quality services,” Antoniadis said. “During the past 19 years, and with more than 220,000 flight hours, we have established a solid relationship of confidence.”
Both companies have a longstanding reputation for reliability and excellence, and are renowned powerhouses in the aviation industry. PlaneSense, Inc. manages the largest civilian fleet of Pilatus PC-12 aircraft in the world, and has more experience with the PC-12 than any other aircraft management and maintenance team. Pratt & Whitney Canada is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and service of aircraft engines powering business, general aviation, and regional aircraft, as well as helicopters.
“For nearly 20 years, PlaneSense and Pratt & Whitney Canada have teamed up to offer reliable and flexible solutions that provide peace of mind,” said Denis Parisien, Vice President, General Aviation, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We are proud to commemorate the delivery of the 50th PT6A to PlaneSense. This important milestone re-affirms our common mission to deliver quality products and services to our customers.”
While addressing Pratt & Whitney Canada employees, Antoniadis explained that the week of Fourth of July proved to be busy for the PlaneSense program. In the six days surrounding the holiday, PlaneSense® pilots flew 834 hours, with 675 take offs.
“Each one of these flights was powered by a PT6A engine,” Antoniadis said. “This level of confidence is very difficult to obtain, and it indicates the high quality of the Pratt & Whitney Canada organization.”
