Pilatus will showcase their next generation aircraft, the PC-12 NG at Aero India 2015, scheduled to be held between February 18 and 22 at Bengaluru.
The latest upgrade of the popular PC-12 has exciting new features to make the 2014/2015 PC-12 NG the best PC-12 to date.
The Pilatus PC-12 is the turbine-powered aircraft which has been in operation round the globe in a number of roles like executive transport, cargo, air-ambulance, airline, and government special mission applications.
Last year, the company launched the upgraded version, 2014 PC-12 NG, which has all the hallmarks of outstanding versatility, performance, and operational flexibility and incorporates new technology and a host of added features.
The new features added in 2014 PC-12 NG includes six new BMW Design works, USA executive interior options, a new electric landing gear system, external LED lighting, a wireless Connected Flight Deck system, and a Wi-Fi passenger entertainment system.
The response to the PC-12 NG as a business aircraft has been unprecedented and the showcase at Aero India 2015 is expected to give it an additional boost.
The turboprop has short runway performance and is approved to land on any kind of runway. Business visitors to the Airshow are bound to appreciate that the PC-12 NG is more efficient than its jet counterparts burning up to 40% less fuel per hour. That means less cost and less carbon footprint without sacrificing comfort.
The PC-12 NG completed the 1,300th delivery last year.
