If you’re looking for one of the most popular, well designed and crafted single-engine turboprops in the industry, you’ve found it here. The Pilatus PC-12NGX encompasses a true “Departure from the Ordinary” experience. Since 1996, Aero Center Epps Atlanta has offered the Pilatus aircraft in 7 sales territories: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and the Caribbean. We have sold over 100+ PC12 aircraft. Summer 2020 marked Epps’ first delivery of Pilatus’ latest model, the Pilatus PC-12NGX, in the SE U.S.
What do you get when you combine the capabilities of the PC-12, the cabin size of a medium-light jet and the performance of a light jet? The Pilatus PC-24 of course! On December 7th, 2017, the PC-24 received its certification from both EASA and the FAA, fulfilling Pilatus’ promise that the aircraft would be ready by year end. In pure Pilatus Class, many of the performance statistics of the certified aircraft proved to be better than originally anticipated – such as a max cruise speed of 440kts instead of 425kts, for example.

Every crystal found in the mountains of Switzerland is entirely unique. Just as unique is the PC-24, the only aircraft combining the versatility of a turboprop with the cabin size of a medium-light jet, and the performance of a light jet. It’s a plane that simply doesn’t fit into any of the existing business jet categories.
The PC-24 has been engineered to be “off-road“ compatible from the beginning. Its outstanding short-field performance – even on unpaved runways – opens up an incredible level of mobility. With the PC-24, you will have access to almost 100% more airports around the world.
Only the finest-quality materials have been used to create an interior that fits in perfectly with the latest standards of comfort and functionality. Every component is chosen to enhance the passenger experience: soft leathers and rare hardwood cabinetry full of exquisite details create a bespoke interior that reflects the meticulous purpose of the aircraft.
The Pilatus PC-12NGX flying experience is utterly unlike any other. When it comes to the finest in workmanship, technology, and versatility, there is no competition. Since 1996, Epps Aviation has relished selling and servicing one of the most desired single-engine turboprops in North America. Our sales territory includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and the Caribbean.
