ALTO Aviation adds Pilatus PC-12 to its aircraft platform.

ALTO Aviation and Spirit Aeronautics partner for the first ALTO Entertainment System (AES) installed in a Pilatus PC-12.

ALTO Aviation, the premier supplier of custom cabin audio entertainment systems for business aviation, is pleased to announce the expansion of its turboprop aircraft by delivering a premium ALTO Entertainment System (AES) to Spirit Aeronautics facility in Columbus, Ohio for installation in a Pilatus PC-12.

The system included four (4) ALTO high fidelity mid/high range speakers and two (2) ALTO subwoofers. Stereo headphone audio was provided at each seat location and controlled with ALTO DECU style keypads. An ALTO Audio Engineer tuned the system at Spirit Aeronautics facility by configuring the digital amplifier to match the acoustical profile for this specific aircraft before delivery to the owner.

The team at Spirit Aeronautics provided a very professional installation with an extremely high attention to detail in mounting the mid/high speakers behind the sidewalls, with custom fabricated speaker grill painted to match the aircraft interior. ALTO passenger controls for headphone and speaker volume were mounted into the interior side ledges with matching plated bezels.

“The overall quality of the installation was excellent and exceeded our expectations. We are pleased to add the Pilatus PC-12 into our list of aircraft type systems and look forward to continuing our partnership with Spirits Aeronautics to provide additional aircraft owners and their passengers with the most powerful and outstanding audiophile experience” Steve Lord, ALTO Aviation Senior Technical Sales Manager, said.

“When the customer approached us looking for an Entertainment System with exceptional sound, we knew ALTO was the only real solution especially when we learned that the client has a highly developed ear for music”, said Tony Bailey, President & COO of Spirit Aeronautics. “His tastes also rolled over in to aesthetics and everything had to be beyond brilliant. Our team, in partnership with the ALTO staff, delivered the aircraft on-time with incomparable visual and audible results. The customer directly stated that the system and the installation exceeded his every expectation. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing those words from our customers!”
