Pilatus PC-12

The Pilatus PC-12 operator has also reduced minimums from 60 minutes to 8/10ths of an hour within its primary service area

Tradewind Aviation is following up on last year’s launch of its Goodspeed Jet Card program by restructuring its on-demand charter pricing within its fixed-rate service area.

Tradewind Aviation, which already offers a Pilatus PC-12 based jet card program and scheduled shuttle flights, is now adding an option for private shuttle flights.

The move is the latest response from private aviation providers in response to the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic. Research shows exposure the virus is more than 30 times lower when flying privately as opposed to using the airlines.

Pilatus PC-12 Facts

Called the “Swiss Army knife of the skies” for its durability, reliability, and flexibility, the Swiss-made PC-12 can land on grass strips and features a rear cabin cargo door.

PlaneSense, Nicholas Air and Tradewind Aviation have all helped popularize the PC-12 in the fractional and jet card market.

A large cargo door in the rear passenger cabin allows quick conversion from passengers, plus the ability to easily load oversize baggage, including skis.
