Fitting In

Fitting In

The Pilatus PC-12 is known everywhere for its ability to operate at airports that jet aircraft can’t use because of size or noise restrictions. That advantage helps many of our share owners fly into airports that are closer to their destination and far more convenient. It is a strength that actually goes hand in hand with the PC-12’s capabilities at big airports. In fact, we regularly fly into the nation’s largest and busiest airports, including Boston, Atlanta, Miami, New York, and Chicago. The PC-12’s highly capable approach speeds and efficient wing design help it easily fit in with even the largest jet airliners like the Airbus A380 or Boeing 747. Better than that, our pilots can keep pace with the big jets while having the unique flexibility to enter through the back door offered by the shorter, less congested runways usually available at big airports. Runway 11 at Newark or 33R at Boston are great examples. This can mean fewer delays on the ground and in the air, more efficient business travel, and smoother connections with international flights. We can’t think of another plane that fits in so well at so many airports.
