The Pilatus PC-12 single-engine utility turboprop has achieved a significant milestone, surpassing ten million flight hours since the first deliveries of the model in 1994. Pilatus reports that 71 PC-12s have logged over 20,000 flight hours each, with the fleet leader accumulating more than 35,000 hours.

Instead of just mentioning how many hours, it would be interesting to see how many cycles they have accumulated.

So the average flight time is one hour and four minutes?

That's what the math says. BUT, the "average flight" would generally be longer, given the number of additional landings required for maintenance and training which skews the statistical "average".

Things like pattern work (where they might do 10 landings within an hour of flight time) may affect that number.

As of two minutes ago there were 36 tracked PC12 flights in the air worldwide. If you can calculate the average duration in your head, I promise you'll be home in time to watch Wopner.

Flown on them a few times. A good way to get to Boston from Massena. With free parking at Massena, this pays for the flight and then fly anywhere in the world from Boston!
