QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Nothing—not the valor with which it is fought nor the nobility of the cause it serves—can glorify war. War is wretched beyond description, and only a fool or a fraud could sentimentalize its cruel reality.

—U.S. Senator John McCain

This Ingenious Device Helps Board a Wheelchair-bound Passenger into a Pilatus PC-12
The Pilatus PC-12 is an excellent family transportation airplane, but what if one of the family members is wheelchair-bound and unable to climb the entry stairs? A New York-based company owns two PC-12s and was faced with this problem for one of its frequent travelers.

Instead of adapting a wheelchair to somehow fit on the PC-12’s stairs, the company's PC-12 pilot and industrial designer Gideon Clement came up with a simpler idea. He took advantage of the PC-12’s big cargo doorway and designed a lifting system that can load a wheelchair carrying a passenger with a total weight of 300 pounds right into the cabin.

The Pro Star PC-12 wheelchair lift system is manufactured and distributed by Pro Star Aviation of Manchester, New Hampshire.
