The Flight

Take a flight in the 1200 HP turbine powered Pilatus PC-12 from Boise, Idaho to the resort destination of Sun Valley, Idaho . The complete experience takes you through the pilot's pre-flight weather briefing, flight planning and the pre-flight aircraft walk around. You then watch and listen as the pilot completes and explains the extensive pre-start checklist prior to ignition. Once the pilot has the aircraft up, running and stabilized, he receives his clearance from air traffic control. You watch and listen as he enters the flight plan into the state of the art GPS unit and the aircraft's integrated flight management system.

Once airborne, you are treated to the beautiful and rugged Central Idaho landscape of lakes and jagged snow covered peaks. You punch through a few clouds before air traffic control unexpectedly asks the pilot to enter the published holding pattern for traffic spacing. After the pilot is then cleared for the approach, you descend through a cloud deck down into the narrow high mountain valley that leads you on the tricky approach to Sun Valley's Friedman Memorial Airport. As the approach commences, you experience the expected turbulence that was reported in the pre-flight weather briefing as the pilot calls out his aircraft's power and attitude adjustments on final.

Just before touchdown, the outside views help you appreciate just how difficult this approach can be due to the proximity of the mountains. Then, after the pilot's textbook landing, you taxi in to complete the final phase and watch the pilot shut down the Pilatus.

With a range of more than 2,239 nm, this pressurized aircraft can cruise to 270 knots to maximum altitude of 30 000 feet, thus avoiding the low-altitude turbulence.
