Description

On October 22, 2019, at the NBAA convention, Pilatus announced the most advanced and versatile single-engine turboprop PC-12 NGX. The newest development of the PC-12 was already certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. It is a single-engine turboprop-powered by the Pratt and Whitney PT6E-67XP.

Its improved engine technology boasts an Electronic Propeller and Engine Control System incorporating Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) to lower cabin noise. Furthermore, the new propeller low-speed mode results in a notable cabin noise reduction for passenger comfort. The engine allows the aircraft to obtain a maximum cruise speed of 290 KTAS. The aircraft also offers the prist-free fuel operation.

The PC-12 NGX features the Honeywell’s Advanced Cockpit Environment (ACE) System. This smart cockpit integrates the power of a cursor control device with the flexibility of a smart touch screen controller in an executive flight deck. The digital autothrottle such as the automatic thrust adjustment lessens the pilot workload for safer operation and guarantees an automatic power boost in every phase of the flight.

The aircraft also features a redesigned cabin with larger round windows. The cabin windows were enlarged by ten percent to intensify the passenger experience and allow more natural light. The rectangular windows were adapted from the PC-24, and dark windshield surround strip provides a distinguishing ramp presence for the aircraft. The entirely reconfigured cabin offers six different interiors by BMW Designworks. The exclusively developed extremely light passenger seats provide ideal ergonomics and full-recline capability. The seats are configured to provide maximum space with more headroom.

The aircraft can fly with around 360 kg of maximum payload and four passengers at a range of 1,803 nautical miles or with around 544 kg of maximum payload and six passengers at a range of 1,568 nautical miles. The PC-12 NGX can fly up to 30,000 feet.
