In a ceremony in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (USA), the Swiss aircraft manufacturer delivered the 1,200th unit of its single engine turboprop PC-12 to fractional aircraft ownership program PlaneSense™.

President and CEO of PlaneSense, Inc., George Antoniadis, explained, “PlaneSense, Inc. has built its successful business model on the PC-12. For eighteen years, this versatile, efficient and reliable aircraft has served us extremely well. The PlaneSense™ program employs the largest civilian fleet of PC-12 aircraft in the world, which  speaks volumes about  our satisfaction with the performance of the aircraft and our long lasting  relationship with Pilatus.”

Thomas Bosshard, President and CEO of Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd added, “Pilatus and PlaneSense™ have enjoyed an outstanding  partnership for nearly 20 years. We have grown together, learned from each other, and mutually prospered because of this relationship. We  wish to thank both PlaneSense and its customers for their confidence in  the PC-12 and for their eighteen years of safe operation. Pilatus is honored to have PlaneSense, Inc. take delivery of the 1,200th PC-12, and we look forward to many more years of success in the future.”

The versatile PC-12 NG performs many roles worldwide, including executive transport, commuter, medevac, police and border surveillance, cargo transport, military liaison, and regional airliner. The PC 12 fleet has amassed over 4 million flight hours of operating experience, including thousands of hours in some of the world’s harshest environments.
