In a ceremony held yesterday at Pilatus Business Aircraft Ltd’s facility in Broomfield, Colorado, Surf Air took delivery of PC-12 NG serial number 1490, with the registration number N809SA. The aircraft, sporting Surf Air’s unique new fleet paint scheme, is the first of fifteen firm aircraft the membership-based airline ordered from Pilatus earlier this year.

This newest aircraft joins a fleet of three “Legacy” PC-12s Surf Air employed initially to introduce their business model. Two additional new PC-12 NGs will join the fleet by the end of this year. As new aircraft come on line, the older Legacy PC-12s will eventually be phased out and replaced with PC-12 NGs featuring the Honeywell Primus Apex integrated avionics system, a higher horsepower Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67P engine, and customized BMW DesignworksUSA executive interiors.
