The stats listed above are quite out of date. The aircraft has gone from Series 9 to Series 10 to the NG (next generation), HP has gone up on each. Take-off weight has gone up. Cruise speed also increased. Service ceiling is 30,000 ft. Avionics has led the way in each new series. I have about 6,000 hours in this aircraft (95 % single pilot) and have enjoyed every minute of my flying with the machine.

The best thing about the PC-12 is it's a Mooney on Steroids!! What other turbo-prop a /c has an 18:1 glide ratio and is built like a battleship with the most reliable engine ever Built and so economical to operate!! Leave to the worlds best watchmakers to put the other aviation co's to shame!!

We just purchased a pc-12 from Africa and waiting the arrival , we currently own a citation III, an Mu-2Long body. We just sold our CJ-2, What kind of transition do I have to look forward to in flying this aircraft.

I'm trying to find a school that will certify me without having to go for a solid seventeen days.


Do you have any comments?
