Annual Budget

The total annual budget for flying a Pilatus PC-12 private jet 200 hours per year is approximately $377,923 or $580,232 for flying 400 hours per year. The maximum speed of the Pilatus PC-12 is 313 mph, but with slower climb, cruise and descending speeds it is more likely to average 250 mph which would equate to an average cost per mile of approximately $7.55 at 200 hours per year. If you fly 400 hours per year, you can spread the total fixed costs over more flight hours which reduces your cost per mile to $5.79.

These budgets do not include the cost to purchase the jet, depreciation or the cost of capital (interest payments.)
