Northway Aviation operates several Cessna Caravans, as well as three Pilatus PC-12s. 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.



The Pilatus PC-12 NG has gained a reputation for outstanding versatility, performance, reliability and operational flexibility. As such, it is one of the most popular turbine-powered business aircraft on the market today. Northway operates this aircraft with two crew.

  • A maximum range of 1,845 nautical miles (HSC, VFR, reserves)

  • 285 knot maximum cruise speed
