"PC-12 Next Generation"

The Next Generation PC-12 will feature state-of-the-art Honeywell Primus Apex avionics. Four large displays, including two PFDs and two MFDs, provide an unprecedented amount of viewing area and integrate flight information, engine monitoring, aircraft configuration, pressurization, and environmental controls. Flight and weather data, charts, aircraft system information, and trip planning functions are all within easy reach, while a new cockpit environment designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA sets a new standard for ergonomics and aesthetics.

Higher performance comes from the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67P, which delivers 15 % more thermodynamic power for faster climbs and higher cruise speeds by utilizing single crystal CT blades and a new compressor configuration.

The Next Generation PC-12’s advanced systems include a digital dual-zone Environmental Control System for increased cockpit and cabin comfort, a fully automatic digital Cabin Pressurization Control System which requires no input from the pilot, and a fully redundant Power Generation and Distribution System.
