Aircraft Update for 02-May-2016


Another large report, similar to last Monday's.

You will notice two additional types below, the Beech 100, and the Pilatus PC-12. 

Although I have collected data on the PC-12 for several months, I hadn't actually added it to the report. So, as was the case when I added the Cessna Caravan, it will be a learning curve for me - anyone with Pilatus expertise is encouraged to provide any updates or corrections that may be necessary.

I have added the Beech King Air 100 series as a starting point specifically because here in Canada there remains a large number of the type operating with third-level carriers around the country. If further King Air types are added in the future, the next series would be the King Air 200.
