Pilatus PC-12/45

About the PC-12/45 models

The PC-12/45 models range from S/N 101 through S/N 683.

The Pilatus PC-12 /45 designator was first introduced in 1996, and is used on the so called ”legacy models”, which also includes the succeeding PC-12/47 models.

Throughout the 10 year period where the /45 designator was used, Pilatus made several incremental improvements to the aircraft, all of these bundled in serial numbers. The most significant change for the PC-12/45 being the increased gross weight from 9040 to 9920 (s/N 141-180). The increased gross weight meant a significant longer range and larger payload.
