Pilatus Mum on New Aircraft Program

 - September 3, 2010, 6:00 AM

At EAA AirVenture last month, Pilatus Business Aircraft president Thomas Bosshard would not elaborate on speculation about any plans to develop a new business aircraft other than to say "we are looking at several things." He discounted any anticipated announcement at the NBAA Convention next month as "premature." He also said the recent move to purchase PC-12 fuselages and wings from Poland's PZL Swidnik is to add a "secondary supplier" for these components and not a precursor of significantly increasing PC-12 production.
