The many benefits of owning a share in a Pilatus PC-12 in the PlaneSense fractional program add up to much greater value and control when flying privately. Here’s how:
Buy A Share, Get A Fleet. With the PlaneSense program you save money, time and effort because you buy only what you need and have access to the entire fleet of identically configured PC-12s. This provides a response time of as little as 8 hours between the time you book a trip and its departure time, when your travel is within our Primary Operating Area, giving you significant scheduling flexibility.
Customized Share. Similar to most programs, a fractional share in the PlaneSense program is available in 1/16th increments. Unlike others, however, we will help you choose the right share size AND the best hours allotment based on two different flight time options so you can better fit your share to your flying needs.
Fly Anywhere. We can fly you within the continental U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas and the Islands of the Caribbean. Positioning costs are applicable outside of our Primary Operating Area.
Gain Greater Airport Access. The PlaneSense program features the Pilatus PC-12 with its short runway capability. This means that you can fly to/from destinations with runways as short as 2,500 feet, paved or not. We can help you access up to four times as many airports compared to similarly sized jets1, which adds up, especially when you need to reach multiple locations within a short period of time.
Contractual Flexibility. Each PlaneSense owner has the opportunity to remarket his or her share at any time. The PlaneSense program also provides predictable exit options at years 5, 7 and 10.
Turnkey Flight Department. We’re committed to very personal service and have a dedicated flight department that delivers, including the flight crews, operations, maintenance and hangar services to best serve your flying needs. All you do is place your flight request with 8 hours notice, go to the airport, and fly.
Consistent, Superior Quality. Every Swiss-built PC-12 in our fleet, and every single flight we operate, receives the utmost level of diligence and care from highly trained and skilled pilots, operations teams and aircraft technicians.
Predictable Cost. You’ll always know your flying costs. Both the Monthly Management Fee and the Occupied Hourly Fee are guaranteed on an annual basis for the term of your management agreement. To absorb upward or downward shifts in marketplace financials over that term, annual adjustments in the Management fee are restricted to the greater of a CPI-U increase or 3.5% while annual changes in the Occupied Hourly Fee are restricted to CPI-U changes.
Multiple Aircraft Use. Owners with at least a 5/16th share of an aircraft have guaranteed access to more than one aircraft when they need to perform two concurrent trips.
