Sixth Pilatus

Sounds Air have added a sixth Pilatus PC12 to its fleet. ZK-PLB (c/n 725) arrived in New Zealand on the 12th of March 2019 as VH-YWO. Sounds Air recently announced the airline would withdraw its Naper-Blenheim service and the aircraft would be used elsewhere, but CEO Andrew Crawford was unable to confirm where. So it looks like there will be something to look forward to in 2020!

Pilatus PC12 VH-YWO flew from Wellington to Omaka as Sounds Air Oscar on 12 March 2019.

  1. I have heard that Sounds Air are investigating a Christchurch to Wanaka route which could explain the plane. Not sure skis fit in the pilatus though.
