If you’re in the market for a single-engine turboprop aircraft, the Pilatus PC-12 NG will undoubtedly have crossed your radar. As an upgrade on the earlier PC-12/47, the PC-12 NG was first certified in 2008 and was produced until 2020 when it was replaced by the newer NGX model.

Equipped with a single Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67P engine, the PC-12 NG offers additional normal and high cruise speed, and a quicker rate of climb than its PC-12-model predecessors.

AvBuyer Opinion: The Pilatus PC-12 NG sits at the top of the single-engine turboprop sector and is competitive with several twin-engine models. It offers a versatile cabin space that can be configured for passengers, cargo, or a combination of both. Its cabin volume is similar to the Cessna Grand Caravan, but its fully-fuelled payload capacity, range and speed are greater.
