Pilatus Aircraft is shortening working hours for 350 of its employees from September 1 in response to order cancellations for its PC-12 NG single-engine turboprop. According to the Swiss manufacturer, the move will reduce the overall number of annual paid hours by about 15 percent and the company does not plan to lay off staff.
