PC-12 class rating

"The worlds greatest single!"


With more than seven million hours flown, the PC-12 has established itself as the world's most versatile and pioneering single-engine turboprop business jet.

Multifunctional. Reliable. Safe. Proven.

These are the words customers often use to describe their PC-12, explaining why so many people around the world trust the PC-12 to transport family and friends, colleagues or valuable goods. Comfort, quality, efficiency and time savings add to the list of benefits for anyone traveling on the world's most popular single-engine business aircraft.

Why should you take this rating?

There are many reasons why you should invest in a SET (Single Engine Turbine) class rating on the PC-12. The PC-12 is a state-of-the-art aircraft with an ever-increasing range of applications. Companies and even private operators are recognizing the added value of the PC-12:

  • The PC-12 can use runways as short as 758 meters at maximum weight and even operate on grass, gravel runways.
  • This flexibility, combined with a range of up to 3,300km, results in a much wider operational envelope than most business jets.
  • The PC-12 NG offers avionics technology inspired by business jets, tailored for single-pilot operations.
  • More than 1700 PC-12s and over seven million hours flown safely represent Pratt & Whitney Canada's highly reliable PT6 engine. The PC-12 has a safety record on the same level as that of twin-engine business jets.
  • The PC-12 can be operated in "single pilot" or "multi pilot" operations.

This is your investment in a future-proof rating!

The most important topics:

  • Overview of the PC-12
  • Environmental systems
  • Anti-Ice/De-Ice
  • PT 6 Turbine
  • Avionic system Honeywell Primus Apex
  • Fuel system
  • Landing gear
  • Performance
  • ...

The training ends with an examination which has to be passed with 75%. After that you are "ready for take-off" with the PC-12!

This part of the training covers the practical training on the PC-12. It includes 7 sessions with a total of 12 block hours and is divided into 5.5 hours of VFR and 6.5 hours of IFR time.

Each session includes a comprehensive pre-flight briefing, approximately 1.5 to 2 block hours of flight time and a detailed post-flight debriefing.
