A Pair of PC12’s

Bringing our Pilatus PC-12 tally up to 5 this season we welcomed these two aircraft on Thursday evening from Belgium.
These 10 seater luxury aircraft are operated by European Aircraft Private Club and are 2 of 5 PC12’s in their fleet. Its a first to have 2 arriving at the same time, and but still have plenty of space on the apron, so maybe we can get 3 in next year?

The pair are scheduled to depart Welshpool around 1700 this evening.

It’s that time of year again and the shoot season has begun, this season brings many shooting parties from London & further a field in Europe.
Not the first, but one of the earlier visitors was a Pilatus PC-12 M-JJTL from Denham earlier this week. You can see that this large aircraft operates with ease from our 1020m tarmac strip.

 

We are able to offer an out of hours service and with full runway edge & APAPI lighting it makes us a very useful airfield for this type of traffic. We look forward to welcoming much more of this traffic over the next few months.

The visit of Vulcan air P68TC was a first ever visit of this type at Welshpool. Although we have had various survey aircraft in over the years we can’t remember seeing a Vulcan air P68TC. A fairly recent addition for the PDG fleet, the aircraft was here for a few days to before departing for a lot of survey work in Southern England.
