The most revered turboprop in the world.
The most iconic aircraft in history took one thing and made it better than anyone else. Pilatus challenged all things and created the world’s most impressive single-engine aircraft. The PC-12 took flight in 1991 and quickly become one of the most recognized turboprops ever invented. Over the years, Pilatus refused to settle for “the best” and relentlessly adapted the PC-12 to be faster, stronger, and more enduring. In 2008, they finally outdid themselves with the release of the Next Generation of business-class aviation.
The PC-12 NG does not compromise speed and range for size and capacity, luxury for ruggedness, or power for versatility.
To date, no other aircraft in its class can move as many passengers and equipment as far and as fast as the PC-12 NG. An aircraft this strong, powerful, and versatile quickly attracted attention. From air ambulance and executive transport to law enforcement and special government missions, the PC-12 NG earned a reputation for outstanding performance and is considered today to be the most popular turbine-powered aircraft in the world. The PC-12 NG is also one of the most exclusive aircraft to own. Pilatus minimizes the production and only makes two percent of the fleet available for purchase. As such, the PC-12 NG is the least depreciating aircraft in existence and, with EvolveAir’s Shared Ownership Program, more attainable and affordable than ever.
The strength and beauty of the Swiss Alps emulated in a single aircraft.
Swiss engineers analyzed every square inch of the PC-12 NG’s exterior to reduce drag and increase the aerodynamics of the craft. As you approach the sleek carbon-fiber body and impressive 53-foot wingspan, you’ll immediately notice two unique details that give this aircraft an unmistakable presence on the runway. First, the craft’s posture is towering, with 2x the ground clearance of other aircraft. The additional clearance paired with large low-pressure tires and specialized wing flaps allow the craft to fly at very low speeds and land on unprepared runways in as short as 2,600 feet without damaging the fuselage.
The second detail that will catch your gaze is the newly redesigned five-blade graphite composite propeller. Hartzell specifically engineered this prop for the PC-12 NG with thin blades to reduce cabin noise and increase the aircraft's climb and cruise rates without straining the engine. Walk to the side of the aircraft, and you’ll see a large cargo door that provides convenient access to the aircraft’s vast storage compartment, and a separate entry door that converts into a small 4-step staircase. Choose from several standard paint schemes, including Ferrari-inspired red, yellow and black, or your own customized exterior you create from a vibrant pallet of 40 different colors.
