KCAC Aviation, an Olathe, Kansas-based FBO and authorized dealer for Piper and Pilatus, has established a Pilatus sales office at DuPage Airport (DPA) in West Chicago. Leading the new office as regional sales director is Keith Plumb, the former president, CEO, and co-founder of fractional and managed operator Executive AirShare. He will oversee sales of the Swiss airframer’s PC-12 turboprop single and PC-24 twinjet in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
“Having regional representation based in this four-state area will help KCAC better serve its customers, especially with the introduction of the Pilatus PC-24,” KCAC general manager Mark Riley said. “Keith is well versed in both the turboprop and jet markets and…his passion for building relationships, coupled with his relentless pursuit to go above and beyond for his customers, represents the same philosophy that has propelled KCAC forward for 53 years.”
Plumb, who holds a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, has more than 25 years of industry experience and has logged more than 4,400 flight hours with multiple type ratings. In all, KCAC’s Pilatus sales territory encompasses nine states, including Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
