Oct. 20, 2009 – The Chairman of Polymer Resources, Mr. Les Klein was on hand to accept the keys to his new aircraft. Founded in 1974 and based in Stamford, Connecticut, Polymer Resources will use the aircraft for corporate travel nationwide.

Speaking from the Pilatus booth at the Orange County Convention Center, Mr. Klein commented: “We examined a number of candidate aircraft for our company and it was very obvious that the PC-12 NG captured the greatest number of key mission requirements. Our senior management and technical personnel will put the aircraft to good use in support of our growing customer base.

In the end the Pilatus reputation for product support in addition to excellent operating economics made the PC-12 NG a clear choice. We look forward to a long association with Pro Star Pilatus Center as we prepare for entry in to service of our new PC-12 NG.”

Thomas Bosshard, CEO of Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd. commented: “Having Mr. Klein here with his new aircraft inside the exhibit hall is a great honor and one of those special moments in life. With our partner Pro Star Pilatus Center, we look forward to a long term relationship supporting Polymer Resources and their new PC-12 NG for many years to come.”


Pro Star Pilatus Center is the factory authorized PC-12 sales and service center for the PC-12 NG in New England, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Michigan.

The single turbine powered PC-12 NG has become increasingly popular as a cost effective and defensible solution for business travel. Companies striving to operate as efficiently as possible have found the PC-12 NG to be an ideal tool to increase productivity. Low acquisition and operating costs combined with a large cabin, standard cargo door, and ability to fly into short and unimproved airfields uniquely distinguish the PC-12 NG from all other jet and twin turboprop aircraft.
