The Pilatus PC-12 continues to offer outstanding value whilst ticking so many boxes for its owners – "no wonder it is the top selling turbo prop in its class worldwide", says Edwin Brenninkmeyer CEO of Oriens Aviation.
Over 1,500 aircraft have been sold worldwide and the PC-12 is not only used for executive transport, but also for cargo, air ambulance, regional airline, government surveillance and special mission roles.
Its reputation for exceptional durability explains why most PC-12 owners upgrade to another PC-12 as their next aircraft!

A very rare combination of exceptional Swiss quality, yet with some of the lowest operating costs in the business.
Low operating costs means more economical, which means more environmentally friendly. With CO2 emissions as low as 125 g/km/pax, assuming eight passengers on board, there is no other pressurised business aircraft that comes close.
Highest Residual Value
Its quality is manifest in the highest residual values commanded by any aircraft in the industry.
A 10 year old aircraft retains close to 80% of its value when new and no other business aviation aircraft of any size or class comes close.
It has always been a dream to have one aircraft that can do it all. The PC-12 NG comes closest to this ideal.
Tough, Reliable and Versatile
Reliability means low maintenance costs and Pilatus has been voted #1 for service by Professional Pilot Magazine for 15 years consecutively.
The Pilatus PC-12 powered by the legendary Pratt & Whitney Canada legendary PT6, has developed a well-founded reputation since certification in 1994, for exceptional durability. Its first customer was the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service, which gave the aircraft its fame for versatility and its capability to operate off unimproved strips with a pallet-sized cargo door (still the largest in the market for an aircraft of comparable size).
