Tradewind Aviation has signed an order for 20 new PC-12 NGX aircraft, expanding its fleet of Pilatus PC-12s to 38 – one of the largest in the global aviation industry. The first single-engine turboprop is slated for delivery in the third quarter of 2022, with the remaining orders scheduled to deliver over the next five years at a rate of three to four PC-12 NGX per year.
Tradewind Aviation, a market leader in regional air mobility, has operated both, on-demand private charter and scheduled “shuttle” service throughout the US and Caribbean since 2001. In addition to strengthening Tradewind’s long-standing relationship with the Swiss aerospace manufacturer, the purchase will enable the private aviation company to significantly grow and enhance its Pilatus fleet, benefitting both clientele and crew members alike.
The latest version of the PC-12, the NGX boasts a completely redesigned and modernised cabin, featuring larger windows and versatile BMW Designworks seating, making for a more enjoyable and productive passenger experience. Its powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 E-Series engine and advanced single-pilot avionics system automate the flight controls, allowing for lower fuel burn and less noise. The innovative and efficient features of the PC-12 NGX correlate with Tradewind’s commitment to sustainability and new carbon offset programme, which will allow its customers to access remote destinations while combatting climate change.Email Post to a Friend
