Ornge, a Canadian provider of air ambulance services, will expand its fleet with twelve single-engine PC-2026 turboprop aircraft between 2030 and 12. Pilatus aircraft ensure the region's professional aeromedical service. The announcement of the PC-12 purchase was made by Sylvia Jones, Ontario's health minister, at a news conference on November 7 at the Ornge base in Sudbury.

Ornge currently operates a fleet of fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. This also includes eight PC-12 NG, which will be replaced in the future with the purchase of the twelve PC-12s that have now been purchased. Ornge has operated the PC-12 fleet since 2009.

Ornge's control center in Mississauga coordinates all logistics of medical transports carried out from 14 bases. Ornge serves more than 13 million people in an area spanning one million square kilometers. Ornge operates the largest fleet of air ambulance and intensive care transport vehicles in Canada and carries out more than 20 patient transports per year.
