Guaranteed brakes for Pilatus PC-12

 - June 20, 2008, 4:48 AM

The Parker Hannifin Aircraft Wheel and Brake Division of Parker Aerospace announced a guaranteed cost-per-brake-landing (CPBL) program for Pilatus PC-12 and PC-12/45 turboprops with Cleveland-brand steel brakes.

The Pilatus brake CPBL program guarantees 1,000 landings and offers a credit of $2.85 per landing short of 1,000 toward the purchase of new exchange brakes. For example, if a brake provides only 800 landings the customer would receive a $570 credit toward the purchase of the new Cleveland CPBL exchange brakes, which retail for $2,850.

Available exclusively through Pilatus Business Aircraft, the CPBL program allows customers to enroll free of charge at initial installation of the Cleveland Conversion Kit or when purchasing factory overhaul exchange brakes.

The CPBL program is the latest of a number of Cleveland brake programs offered by Parker Aerospace for Pilatus aircraft. Other programs include a usable core exchange program, minor overhaul kit program and rebates on initial factory overhaul brake exchanges ranging from $150 to $300.  

“Between the CPBL, exchange and minor overhaul kit programs, the CPBL has the potential to provide PC-12 owners and operators the biggest cost benefits overall,” said Mike Toth, customer support manager for Parker Hannifin Aircraft Wheel and Brake Division.

Parker Aerospace designs, manufactures  and services hydraulic, fuel and pneumatic components, systems and related electronic controls for the aerospace industry and other high-technology markets.
