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.
