Each month we pick a specific aircraft type to be featured as our Aircraft of the Month. We also try and give you some insight in to its use at YVR as well as provide specifications for aviation buffs. This month our aircraft is a Pilatus PC-12, the latest bird in Harbour Air's recently launched Tantalus Air.
This month, we talk to Aaron Roeck, an Airfield Operations Specialist with the Airfield and Emergency Services team at Vancouver Airport Authority.

And for a select group of these travellers arriving directly from the United States, US Direct has significantly streamlined this process.
