Pilot Magazine, the UK’s most respected flying magazine, recently published a flight test review of the 2016 Pilatus PC-12 NG. Written by Dave Unwin, one of the highlights from the article was, “I can now clearly see why the PC-12 is so popular. It’s a real ‘pilot’s aeroplane’, with good performance and fine handling. I cannot think of another single-engined turboprop I’ve flown capable of hauling such a heavy load (or nine passengers) or flying over 1,800nm from a short, unprepared runway. Comparisons are meaningless − the PC-12NG is, quite literally, in a class of its own.”
