Pilatus delivers PC-12 NGX TPs to launch customers

Pilatus began delivering its new PC-12 NGX advanced single-engine turboprop aircraft to customers around the world.

The NGX model was unveiled to the public at the 2019 National Business Aviation Association’s annual Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas. First delivery of the PC-12 NGX in the United States went to HP Director and former CEO Dion Weisler.

Weisler reserved his NGX as soon as Pilatus opened the order book in October 2019, and upgraded from his 2017 model year PC-12 NG through the manufacturer’s authorized sales and service center Western Aircraft in Boise ID.

In Europe, the first PC-12 NGX delivery went to Dr Ulrich Byszio in Germany. Dr Byszio, a pilot with a passion for all forms of aviation, moved from a popular light jet to his new PC-12 NGX.

Additional PC-12 NGX launch customers from Brazil and the United States will be taking delivery of their new aircraft in June 2020.

Since its introduction, more than 1750 PC-12s have been produced, and it holds the title of the business aviation industry’s top-selling pressurized aircraft for the past 4 years in a row.
