The PC12 is designed to be sustainable and today we want to talk to you about how flying a Pilatus can still be as eco-friendly as possible.
The PC12 is a wonderful plane, a jewel of Swiss aviation: being a turboprop by definition it consumes less and therefore pollutes less and therefore costs less. An advantageous solution for the wallet and the environment.
If you’re looking for an aircraft that is kind to the environment, look no further than the PC-12. Its seemingly-impossible combination of low fuel consumption, high speed, large cabin and high seating capacity have made it one of the most appreciated aircraft by our loyal customers.
According to Business & Commercial Aviation Magazine’s, the PC12 pollutes up to 74% less than a classic private jet. Truly impressive numbers.
It is very interesting to read what Pilatus itself writes about environmental sustainability:
“Naturally, Switzerland’s respect for the environment spills into the culture at Pilatus. This is because for many, dedication to nature and the environment goes beyond governance and legislation. It’s a matter of personal pride, a Swissstainable strategy. Pilatus doesn’t put so much passion behind sustainability because we have to, we do it because it’s who we are.
Operating sustainably is often the most expensive way, but it’s the right way – so that’s what Pilatus does.
• Reducing overall energy consumption
• Using clean, renewable sources of energy
• Using sustainable materials
• Reducing waste
• Using sustainable water sources
• Reducing air pollution
• Promoting eco-friendly awareness and activities“
