Since 1996, Pilatus has completed more than 1,000 PC-12 aircraft at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport and managed North and South American sales and service from leased facilities on airport grounds. The company’s new 118,000-square-foot building on the west side of the airport will consolidate its operations and accommodate employment growth. Pilatus expects to hire about 140 team members when the PC-24 reaches production in 2020.

The new headquarters is scheduled to open in spring 2018.
