The PlaneSense® fractional ownership program is the most versatile private aviation solution in the industry, and the selection of aircraft that comprises the fleet reflects that, starting with the Pilatus PC-12 turboprop aircraft. Reliable, comfortable, and accessible, the PC-12 program and aircraft set the bar high.
The PC-12 strikes the perfect balance between comfort and convenience, making it an ideal fit for the versatile fractional ownership program. With its exceptional landing capabilities, fuel-efficient technology, and a large, in-cabin luggage compartment, the PC-12 and skilled PlaneSense® pilots will safely and quickly get you and all of your luggage (bicycles, fishing gear, golf clubs—you name it) as close as possible to your final destination.
The Pilatus PC-12 aircraft was built with passengers in mind – purposefully designed for comfort, with six spacious seats in an executive style configuration. At 330 cubic feet, the PC-12’s interior cabin is roomier than similarly sized jets, including the Hawker® 400XP, the LearJet® 45, and the Cessna Citation CJ3®.
Relax and unwind in the PC-12’s spacious and luxurious pressurized cabin. Enjoy the extra legroom, swivel and recline in a luxury seat, hold work meetings, or spend time with your family. The PC-12’s cabin features include:
- Six large full function seats that swivel and recline
- Three tables for work or meals
- Club-chair arrangement for face-to-face meetings
- Refreshment center
- A/C outlets
- Private, enclosed lavatory
- Uniquely large cargo door
- Direct access to luggage area from inside the cabin
Many who have flown in a Pilatus PC-12 are impressed by the smooth landing. These gentle landings are attributed to the skill of PlaneSense’s highly trained pilots, but they are also made possible by the aircraft’s retractable trailing-link landing gear, which combines a massive swinging arm with an oleo strut to absorb shock. This gear is the reason PC-12 aircraft can land on all types of unimproved runways with such ease — including grass, dirt, and crushed coral.
The PC-12’s impressive short field performance allows it to access thousands of airports not available to commercial aviation or most business-class jets. Passengers can fly the PC-12 across the U.S, Canada, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean, including short runways on private islands and remote ski destinations. The aircraft is also at home at the world’s busiest hubs and executive airports.
