The Pilatus PC-12 in the PlaneSense® program has the advantage of being comfortably flown almost anywhere – mega airports and tiny airports with single 2,500 foot runways, concrete or grass, whereas operators of similarly sized business jets typically use paved runways that are at least 5,000 feet. That means we can help you access up to four times as many airports compared to a similarly sized jet1, whether you're flying inside or outside of the Primary Operating Area. Here are some city examples of this significant access advantage of the PC-12.
You can use the following resources to explore runway length at airports near you: www.airnav.com and www.acukwik.com. As a share owner, one of our Owner Services representatives will help you identify what airports will work best for your needs.
When considering these landing and take-off advantages, the aircraft’s large cargo door and storage capacity, and our spacious six-seat executive configuration, you’ll begin to understand why we think of the Pilatus PC-12 as one of the most unique and hardest-working aircraft in private aviation.
