Meet the Pilatus PC-12
The first thing that will impress you about the Pilatus PC-12 is how big it is – inside and out
The PC-12 easily accommodates six (big) adults in comfy club seats, and to go with those longer trips there’s an enclosed forward lavatory. In the unlikely event you want to use your golf clubs or skis in flight (not something pilots particularly like) they are right there and accessible in the big roomy stowage section at the rear of the cabin.
With a 53-foot wingspan and a tail that towers 14 feet above the tarmac, this is no “puddle-jumper.” Climb aboard and you’ll find a cabin that is almost five feet in height, five feet wide and 17 feet long. It is actually slightly bigger than the Citation Encore or Hawker 400XP, with double the luggage space.
