Pilatus PC-12 NGX - Dimenssions

INSPIRED BY DNA AND BMW

Together with BMW Designworks we are pleased to offer the most comfortable and modern cabin experience ever in the PC-12 NGX. Inspired by the design of the PC-24, the new PC-12 NGX executive seats feature full recline, taller seat backs, and even more seated headroom. Fine European leather, custom hand-stitching, and a wealth of designs to appeal to a multitude of personalities, your PC-12 NGX is crafted to reflect your unique style. As much as you love flying, we know you also want to stay connected, and the PC-12 NGX can be outfitted with the latest in Wi-Fi, entertainment, and connectivity technologies. Sit back and relax, or get to work, confident that you are in the ultimate flying machine.

INTERIOR

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Form follows function. But in the PC-12 NGX, it’s a very close second. Each aircraft is individually and exquisitely crafted to not only meet your exacting expectations, but also those of our demanding Swiss heritage. From the very moment you enter the cabin, it’s apparent that the PC-12 NGX is truly in a class of its own – even among aircraft priced much higher. You’ll appreciate the Swiss craftsmanship and attention to detail presented in the form of custom hand-sewn leather, exclusive hardwood cabinetry and fine upholstery that abound throughout the aircraft. It even extends into areas deep in the aircraft that only a mechanic might see. It all matters to us, so go ahead and sweat the details – we do, too.

ADVANCED HAS NEVER BEEN SO SIMPLE

Only the PC-12 NGX offers the advanced avionics of high-end business jets tailored for the single pilot.

Safety of flight is the highest priority of Pilatus, and the new PC-12 NGX includes an array of new technologies like tactile feedback in unusual attitudes, an Emergency Descent Mode (EDM), and a Crew Alerting System (CAS) that automatically calls up the appropriate electronic checklist on the multi-function display. Powerful. Intuitive. Safe. It’s what you expect from Pilatus.

COMPARE

ENGINEERED LIKE NO OTHER

WHY OWN A PC-12 NGX?

10 REASONS

01 Proven and Safe
With more than 1,700 PC-12s in the field, and over seven million flight hours behind the ultra-reliable Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 engine, experience makes a difference. The PC-12 leads the industry in sales and enjoys a safety record on par with twin-engine business jets.
06 Countless Destinations
The PC-12 NGX can use runways as short as 2,485 feet (758 metres) at its maximum weight and operate from dirt, gravel, and grass surfaces. The PC-12 NGX can take you places you’ve never been in a business aircraft. Fly closer to your ultimate destination and save overall travel time.
02 Versatility
PC-12s are in use around the world with owner-pilots, corporations, charter and fractional companies, air ambulances, special missions, cargo and law enforcement agencies. This extreme diversity gives owners confidence that their investment in a PC-12 NGX is a sound decision.
07 Cargo Door
Other than our own PC-24 Super Versatile Jet, no other business aircraft features a standard cargo door in addition to a main passenger entry door. Designed to allow a fork-lift to load a standard size pallet directly into the cabin, it can surely fit your luggage, your motor bike, and your surfboard.
03 Smartest Cockpit
The PC-12 NGX leads all others. Autothrottle, tactile feedback, Electronic Propeller and Engine Control System, plus industry-leading features that enhance safety and situational awareness all work together to help PC-12 NGX operators fly safely and efficiently in the most demanding conditions.
08 Highest Residual Value
Independent after-market research publications have verified that PC-12 owners enjoy one of the highest value retention rates in all of business aviation, significantly lowering the total cost of owning a PC-12.
04 Best Cabin in Its Class
With 330 cubic feet (9.34 cubic metres) of cabin volume, you’ll enjoy more space than business jets costing twice as much. New executive seats, more headroom, larger cabin windows and modern BMW Designworks interiors take the PC-12 NGX to an entirely new level of comfort and productivity.
09 Crafted in Switzerland
Pilatus is the only Swiss aircraft manufacturer. Since 1939, every Pilatus aircraft has been designed and manufactured with legendary Swiss quality. We’re proud to be called over-engineered.
05 Unrivalled Efficiency
Maybe it’s our Swiss DNA, but we are not wasteful, and neither are our aircraft. The whole concept behind the PC-12 NGX is to travel farther, faster, in more comfort, on less fuel and lower carbon emissions.
10 First-Class Support
At Pilatus, our primary objective is to keep you flying. Our business model is not built on profiting from your down time. For 18 consecutive years, Pilatus customer support has been rated number 1 in the business turboprop market.
