Some things are destined to be together. Peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and peanut butter....wait a second, do all good things involve peanut butter? Maybe we’re just hungry....anyways, we think Pilatus & Aerista are a pretty great combo.

MPP & Article

In 2018, POPA reached out to Kristy regarding an idea they had in creating a program that would allow owners and operators to search Pilatus PC-12 & PC-24 qualified pilots around the globe. Kristy was an excellent candidate to create such a program due to her experience managing, flying, and teaching in Pilatus Aircraft. Kristy created this program from scratch and in 2019 the POPA Mentor Pilot Program (MPP) was launched! Today, the program is alive and well and managed now by another top Pilatus qualified Instructor Pilot.

Kristy has been the author of a handful of POPA magazine articles:




“I was just thinking of what a wonderful and professional broker that you are. You have been a wealth of information for me and Trey and have always been receptive to our inquiries and complaints. I really appreciate all your efforts and if there is anything that I could ever do for you I hope you ask. If there is another plane down the road for me/us you will be our first point of contact. Thanks so much.”
