Business jets are quite a luxury for many people, but there are alternatives for short flights with few passengers. An executive turboprop can also be an excellent choice for private charter flights. The Pilatus PC-12 is a fine example of an executive charter turboprop aircraft which can ferry business men and women over distances up to 2500 statute miles.
Manufactured by the Swiss company ‘Pilatus’, the PC-12 is a six to nine seat turboprop engine comparable to the King Air 200 twin. It is designed with capabilities for combining passenger seating with cargo delivery. Charter flights to business cities such as New York, Teterboro, or Austin are quick and comfortable in this executive turboprop aircraft.
The PC-12’s roomy cabin can be arranged in several ways to fit customer needs. Up to eight executive seats can be grouped in double club configuration for in-flight business, or rearranged for private rest. Some private aircraft may offer a two or three seat bench in place of two seats, or seats can be removed for extra cargo. The cabin is equipped with fitted cabinets and tables, and the baggage area is accessible during flight.
The cabin is not the only dynamic aspect of Pilatus PC-12 jet charter. It is capable of using grass and unfinished runways of varying lengths. A single Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67B turboprop engine powers the PC-12. Pilatus has recently introduced an updated version of the aircraft, calling it the PC-12 NG (for next generation), that runs on the more powerful Pratt & Whitney PT6-67P engine. This provides the NG with a higher maximum cruise speed and improved climb performance. Other upgrades for the PC-12 NG include enhanced Honeywell Primus Apex integrated avionics, an automatic cabin pressure control system, and a dual-zone temperature control system.
The Pilatus PC-12 is as luxurious aircraft as it is flexible, providing comfort and speed to savvy private jet charter travelers. Whether you have business in Chicago or San Diego, or want to enjoy a weekend in Miami or Seattle, consider chartering a Pilatus PC-12 for your next flight.
