Pilatus Delivers 2,000th PC-12

Pilatus, the aerospace manufacturer, delivered the 2,000th aircraft in its PC-12 family to fractional ownership company PlaneSense during a ceremony at its headquarters in Stans, Switzerland.  

PlaneSense, based in New Hampshire, has been operating PC-12s since 1995 and currently operates a fleet of 43 PC-12s and eleven PC-24s. 

“This unique aircraft constitutes the backbone of our operation and has been an important part of the success of the PlaneSense program. Over the years, the mutual respect of our companies has supported a productive dialogue contributing to the improvement of the PC-12 and the PlaneSense program,” George Antoniadis, Founder & President, PlaneSense, said. 

The global fleet of PC-12s has amassed over ten million flight hours across three model variants; the PC-12, PC-12NG, and the PC-12NGX – the newest and most advanced variant that was launched in 2019. Pilatus delivered 80 PC-12s last year.  

“Year after year, our PC -12 is, and will remain, the world’s best-selling single-engine turboprop aircraft in its class with pressurized cabin. We have continually developed our bestseller over the years and the current PC-12 is state of the art. Today, I’m very proud that I and my team are able to hand over the 2000th PC-12 to our exceptionally loyal and faithful customer PlaneSense,” said Markus Bucher, CEO, Pilatus.
