Did you know? Aviation Week has won top honors multiple times in the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards, the business-to-business media equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes.
What a difference 12 years has made in the evolution of the Pilatus PC-12. The newest Series 10, FAA type certified in December 2005 as the PC-12/47, has a 10,450-pound (4,700 kilogram) MTOW that enables operators to fill the tanks and fly seven passengers 1,450 nm, arriving with NBAA IFR reserves. That's a considerable upgrade in capability. When we first flew the Pilatus PC-12 several years ago, we were impressed with its roominess, cabin comfort and short-field characteristics.
