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.

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.

Why own a PC-12? Ten Reasons

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Best Cabin in Its Class

With 330 cubic feet (9.34 cubic meters) 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.

5. 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.

6. Countless Destinations

The PC-12 NGX can use runways as short as 2,485 feet (758 meters) 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.

7. 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 motorbike, and your surfboard.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. First-Class Support

At Pilatus, our primary objective is to keep you flying. Our business model is not built on profiting from your downtime. For 18 consecutive years, Pilatus customer support has been rated number 1 in the business turboprop market.
