    Default New Plane... Pilatus PC-12...

    Business partner just bought it. Not exactly part of the planned budget. These are stock photos, but you get the idea. Pretty cool...

    They are a fantastic machine. The North American delivery center is at my home airport (BJC). Is is a new or used plane?

    It is new... We'll be going up tomorrow.

    On a second note, this is a puddle jumper compared one of our aquaintances' Canadair Challenger 601. That thing is ridiculous. Pretty sure he "stole" that one. Literally. He is the owner of Sage Popovich, an aviation repossession company.

    I've been comparing this to the KA 250 and are both very comparable but the PC-12 wins overall. I'm looking for a puddle jumper and the PC-12 seems to be a great choice!

    Very cool plane! I'm assuming running costs on something like this is significantly less than any type of Jet? (excuse my aviation ignorance)

    Generally speaking, yes, with a newer machine like that, compared to an older jet. This is not always the case, but Pilatus makes a great machine. The PC12 is a great short hop business traveler / commuter. I haven't looked at the numbers of cost per mile / hourly costs, but I'm sure they're noteworthy.

    Give or take on this but friend of mine gave me $668/HR & 2.73/SM, he would be flying for me so I've been having him run numbers.
