    A medical transport aircraft will be featured in the fourth in the series of “unique airplane presentations and flying demonstrations.”
    Airlift Northwest will display its Pilatus PC-12 NG, based at the company’s location at the Yakima airport.
    The Pilatus is equipped with a Pratt & Whitney PT-6 engine turning a five-bladed graphite propeller. With a cruising speed of about 240 miles an hour, the Pilatus can transport patients to Seattle in 28 minutes. It can carry up to six passengers, including a patient weighing up to 450 pounds.
    Showcase presentations last about an hour; then the airplanes depart.
