Performance & Specs

Short Runways, Land Closer

The Pilatus PC-12 NG is all about performance, versatility and economy.  When you look at the numbers, you see it provides maximum return for every dollar invested.  It represents a great combination of capacity, amenity, speed, range and performance – made all the more compelling by the modest acquisition and operating costs. At Pilatus, we understand that each customer has unique requirements and we want to help you make the right decision in your next aircraft purchase.

We encourage you to contact a Pilatus representativeso that we may better understand your needs and create a customized transportation solution for you.
