The Value of Only One Engine

Pilatus PC-12 NG does things other airplanes can't and costs less.
by J. Mac McClellan, Flying Magazine, August 2010

Many pilots want to fly a 1,000-mile trip nonstop. That’s about the distance from New York to southern Florida, or from Chicago to Miami, or from Atlanta to Aspen. And people want to take along all of their family, friends and stuff on these trips.
A bunch of airplanes can fly the 1,000-mile trip downwind, or on that mythical flight-planning day when there is no wind, but very few can make it nonstop every time upwind, particularly in the winter months when the wind aloft at turbine airplane altitudes often exceeds 100 knots. And even fewer airplanes can make the trip upwind with a big payload.

Pilatus Odyssey

A brand-new PC-12, put through its paces
by Thomas A. Horne, AOPA Pilot, January 2006

The PC-12's size and ambiance account for much of its success. It can be configured for use as a 10-seat miniairliner; a pallet-eating cargo hauler; an air ambulance; and even what Pilatus calls its "Spectre" variant — a camera-toting surveillance platform for law enforcement, aerial mapping, and search-and-rescue purposes. But it's the executive version of the PC-12 that garners the most sales.

Cabin Size Really Does Matter

Pilatus PC-12 delivers the most room, and range, for the money, and it is in demand.
by J. Mac McClellan, Flying Magazine, October 2006

Whenever I'm around a Pilatus PC-12, either standing on the ramp, or inside the cockpit or cabin, I am dazzled by the size of this turboprop single. The wingspan is more than 53 feet. The tail is 14 feet above the pavement. And the cabin is as roomy as some midsize business jets. The PC-12 cabin is often compared to the stately Beech Super King Air 200, but the Pilatus cabin is actually a little bigger with several more inches of width and length.

Pilatus PC-12 NG: Next Big Thing

The Honeywell Apex Integrated flat-panel avionics system and a host of safety and quality of life enhancements make the PC-12 a hotter commodity than ever.
by Staff, Flying Magazine, September 2008

Since its certification back in 1994, the hallmark of the remarkably successful Pilatus PC-12 turboprop single has been its tremendous flexibility and utility -- with a cabin full of passengers and cargo, it can go from a cozy dirt strip to the city lights a thousand miles distant, flying far above the terrain and much of the weather, and do so at very respectable speeds.

Why I Fly A PC-12: Larry Turley

How one man's passion for riding motorcycles turned into one for flying airplanes.
by Larry Turley, Flying Magazine, January 2010

In truth, Turley had wanted to buy a Pilatus PC-12 ever since he started reading about them in the mid-1990s. But the $3 million-plus price tag for the Pilatus was daunting, even if he could use it for business. The C10T was a more manageable compromise of speed, performance and price. In 2005, however, Turley and his winemaker/general manager, Ehren Jordan, began looking at the option of buying a PC-12 and then putting it on FAR Part 135 charter to help defray the costs

Going Recreational In A Pilatus

An executive turbine with a fun personality sets out to fulfill a mission in the Grand Canyon
by Pia Bergqvist, Plane & Pilot Magazine

Pilots dream about having more than one airplane. They’d like one that’s comfortable and fast for serious cross-countries and another that’s nimble enough to even play in the dirt for the sheer fun of flying. As long as we’re dreaming, let’s include a ridiculously huge useful load, enough to carry a boatload of friends or family, and whatever toys and goodies the mission requires. And just to keep the fantasy simple, let’s make our dream machines single engines, so we can just strap in with our private pilot’s licenses and go. Sound about right so far? Surprisingly, you may not be dreaming.
