Because it's a sub-300-knot cruiser, that max range trip takes a while to unfold. Naturally, most trips are much shorter than that, but even on the longest nonstop legs, the PC-12 can accommodate such endurance because of its great cabin, which rivals those of even large light jets, like the**** Cessna**** Citation CJ4 and the Embraer Phenom 300. Those airplanes are, admittedly, around 150 knots faster than the Pilatus PC-12, but they also cost more than twice as much as the PC-12 and are far costlier to operate. Of course, if you're regularly flying 1,500 nm trips, the speed of a jet makes great sense. But for most business users, typical trips are half that distance or less, and that's where the benefits of a turboprop, especially a single, really pay off.
