Freedom Of Flight with the PC-12 NGX
In the current global climate, there are a plethora of benefits of owning a private jet. Now more than ever, flying privately not only allows you to travel in comfort and save time, but also greatly reduces the chances of any virus transmissions.
Now, private aircraft do depreciate, there’s no getting around that. Most business jets and larger turboprops lose around 50% of their original value within the first 10 years. However, there’s one aircraft that has consistently outperformed the competition when it comes to the depreciation impact: the Swiss manufactured Pilatus PC-12 – “the SUV of the skies”.
With a range of 1,765 nautical miles (when travelling with four passengers), an extra-large baggage compartment and an executive interior designed by the BMW Designworks, the PC-12 is a perfect choice for both business and leisure travel. Seating up to nine passengers, the aircraft can land on grass and unpaved runways, bringing you even closer to your final destination.
Unlike most private aircraft, which begin depreciating from the first take-off, Pilatus’ build quality combined with correct demand and supply management in the market ensure that, should you need to sell your aircraft, you’ll likely achieve up to 80% of its original value, even a decade on. That’s truly remarkable. A leading UK-based aviation finance specialist noted: “The aircraft is very versatile and has a global appeal which offers owners the peace of mind that they are investing in a popular type. Similarly, the low operating costs and the reliability of the engine and avionics adds to that sense of comfort. For that reason, we depreciate the aircraft slower than other aircraft when we come to assess values of our portfolio.”
If time is money, the PC-12 – available from Oriens Aviation in the British Isles – is one of the most solid alternative asset investments out there.
