22 Jan Take Flight on the Pilatus PC-12
When you are looking for that perfect business charter aircraft, you want versatility, reliability, flexibility, comfort and of course performance. Look no further than the amazing Pilatus PC-12, one of the most popular turbine powered planes in the air today.
This plane not only is one of the best choices for charter on business trips, it also works well as a cargo plane, as an air ambulance and for special missions including surveillance. Because it can be configured any number of ways–where its popular flexibility factor comes into play–and it has low operating costs coupled with high speed and long range this aircraft has definitely made its mark in all areas. At least two nations currently use the Pilatus PC-12 in medical missions and countless others are in the air at any given time performing their jobs with power and grace.
Outside, the sleek exterior effortlessly contains Pratt & Whitney Canada engines and offers a high lift wing, perfect for short field landings and take offs. It can land on grass and unimproved field conditions with ease thanks to its retractable trailing-link landing gear. Short runway? Out of the way airport? No worries, this plane can get you in and out safely and in style which is just another way it is second to none in so many different circumstances.
For business flyers, the cabin is the most important feature of any charter jet. It is, after all where your team will spend the flight. It has seating for up to nine passengers in its 330 cubic foot space and has been designed in a collaboration with the manufacturer and BMW Designworks, allowing the 16′ 11″ long and 5′ wide interior to be second to none in terms of comfort and elegance. Unlike many jets, it has a flat floor, not a sloping one and it offers almost 5′ of headroom. There is a fully enclosed lavatory and a baggage area that is fully accessible in flight. In total, the Pilatus PC-12 offers its passengers 40 cubic feet of baggage/ cargo space so you can easily take everything with you.
Up in the cockpit is a state of the art Honeywell Primus set up featuring the newest and safest systems in the business. The Smart View system for example increases safety and situational awareness at all times for the pilot, offering him or her a ‘view’ of the outside via computer.
Whether your next business trip takes you from New York to Puerto Rico or from London to Morocco, this jet is one of the best options to charter. Getting you there when you want, without the hassle of commercial flights and with all the versatility and performance you have come to expect from Pilatus.
