Our Philosophy

The safety of our customers, members, crew and our aircraft is paramount in every step of our activities. This over-arching philosophy is demonstrated through:

  • Our choice of the PC-12 aircraft.
  • SLXP engineering and installation solutions: the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67P power plant and its outstanding reliability coupled with the MT27 five blade composite propeller.
  • The SLXP avionics suite includes real time weather and traffic data: satellite, radar and autonomous avionics are installed on every SLXP flight deck.
  • The maintenance of our aircraft: Pilatus/GAR Approved maintenance programme.
  • The SLXP pilot training programme: highly trained crew with experience exceeding 1,500 flying hours.
  • Flight planning, airport and weather criteria and flight operations conducted within clearly defined parameters including EROPS considerations.
  • Demonstration flights for sales and leasing of the aircraft: manoeuvres are conducted within a distinct safety envelope.
  • The engagement of all our employees in our safety vision, risk management is applied in all aspects of our operations and business.

Qualified Crew & Advanced Training

Our Pilots are trained significantly beyond the EASA/GAR/FAA regulated requirements and to the highest Airline Transport Standards. Our approved training programme utilises the state-of-the-art PC-12 Legacy simulator at Flight Safety International in Dallas Texas to develop our pilots’ reactions to real-world flight scenarios and the most serious emergencies. This is supplemented by further training and testing on the aircraft by EASA instructors and examiners in Europe. The SLXP training programme is a key component of our approved operating certificate and is also available as a customer service feature to new owners of every Super Legacy XP we deliver. When being utilised by Super Legacy Flying Club members, our aircraft normally operate with dual crew.

The Aircraft

Since its introduction in 1994, the Pilatus PC-12 fleet has accumulated over 5 million flight hours with no fatal accidents due to engine failure (NTSB). The Pratt & Whitney PT6 power plant is often called “the most reliable engine in the world.” The Super Legacy XP is supported by a warranty from Pratt & Whitney for seven years following delivery.

Apart from power plant reliability, the PC-12 features technical systems that have led to the aircraft gaining one of the most admirable safety records of all turbine aircraft.

Electrical systems benefit from a complete split-bus dual electrical system with two separate batteries. This dual redundancy makes electrical failure a non-critical event. Pilatus SLXP electrical system

The PC-12 – SLXP is certified for flight into known ice conditions; pneumatic de-icing systems are installed in the wings and empennage, while electrical de-icing measures are integrated into the windshield and exhaust heat is used for engine inlet de-icing. The MT27 five blade propeller provides increased climb performance enabling rapid ascent above icing conditions if necessary: The Pilatus PC-12 Super Legacy XP is a true all-weather aircraft.

The SLXP Garmin avionics suite provides three-dimensional graphical position displays with integrated connectivity to the PC-12 autopilot. The intuitive touchscreen interface is familiar amongst the General Aviation pilot community and provides reduced pilot workload and a smooth transition to type competence during training.
