PILATUS INCREASES CORPORATE PRESENCE IN AUSTRALIA


Pilatus Aircraft Ltd is excited to announce that they have today
created Pilatus Defence Solutions Australia Pty Ltd (PilDEF), a new
corporate entity in Australia, to manage military contracts and
operations in the Australasian region. This increased footprint in
Australia is further strategic commitment to the Australian Defence
Force and Defence Industry by the Swiss parent company.


Pilatus is further pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Rob Oliver
as the CEO of PilDEF. The Company will be headquartered at Sale in
Victoria, close to our ADF customers at the CASG ATACSPO (formerly
TASPO) and the RAAF’s Air Training Wing. PilDEF will also be located at
RAAF Pearce in WA to support the Republic of Singapore Air Force and
RAAF 2FTS operations.


Pilatus Chairman, Oscar Schwenk, said:
“The Pilatus relationship with the Australian Defence Force began with
the delivery of the Pilatus Porter PC-6 in January 1968, 50 years ago next
month. This relationship has been a successful and positive partnering
and the formation of PilDEF will allow an even tighter bond with our
respected partners in Australia.”


PilDEF CEO, Rob Oliver, said: “I am pleased to be able to take Pilatus
Defence operations forward in Australia to this next level. We look
forward to our proven team and superior performance assisting each of
our partners in our combined aim of generating new aircrew for air power
capability into the future.”
