PC-12 NGX Makes its Public Debut in Greece
The iconic Pilatus PC-12 NGX attracted widespread public attention during at the Athens Flying Week (AFW) Tanagra International Air Show 2022.
The newest addition to the iconic range of Swiss-made turboprops was presented at the static display of the airshow through September 17−18 at Tanagra Air Force Base, Athens, Greece.
Accommodating up to 9 passengers depending on configuration, the PC-12 NGX has a top speed of 537 km/h and can go as far as 3426 km without refueling. A unique distinguishing feature of all PC-12 aircraft is their wide 1.35 х 1.32 m cargo door that opens right into the cabin.

The PC-12 NGX is fitted with a FADEC system, while a new engine mode helps reduce cabin noise. The engine fuel heating system eliminates the need for special fuel additives, and the fully integrated Pratt & Whitney PT6E-67XP engine thrust control system reduces pilot workload, improves efficiency, and extends maintenance intervals.
The new modification also offers upgrades to the interior, bigger windows, and reduced cabin noise levels.
