Northway Aviation operates several Cessna Caravans, as well as a Pilatus PC-12. We have found the safety, reliability and efficiency of the Caravan far greater than any similar sized aircraft. The PC-12 is also extremely versatile with great performance and reliability. Both aircraft are single-engine turbine, with the PC12 being pressurized. Both aircraft seat nine passengers, have great payloads, large cargo doors and are well suited for operating from unimproved strips.
