  1. Pilatus PC12 Best Selling Turboprop Of 2016
    Swiss manufacturer Pilatus says that their popular PC-12 turboprop model has been the best selling turboprop of 2016. With 91 aircraft delivered to customers around the world in 2016, the PC-12 NG outpaced sales of all other individual models of turbine-powered business aircraft. In mid-2017, Pilatus will deliver the 1,500th PC-12. While overall industry shipments of turboprops and business jets declined by 3% relative to 2015, Pilatus increased sales of its popular single-engine PC-12 NG turboprop by 30%.
  2. New features in the 2016 PC-12 NG increased cruise speed to 285 KTAS (528 km/h), reduced cabin noise levels, offered updated interior design options, and featured more than a dozen drag reduction changes to the airframe, increasing both range and speed. These enhancements were well received in the market, with demand high across the global Pilatus sales network. Ignaz Gretener, Vice President of Pilatus Aircraft Ltd’s General Aviation business unit commented, “The entire Pilatus team, from engineering to manufacturing to sales and service worked hard this year to achieve these successes in a very challenging market. The PC-12’s comfort, versatility, performance, resale value, and safety all come together to make it the most sought after aircraft in the market. We are honored that our customers continue to put their trust in us, and we will never take that for granted.”
