This is a compare and contrast course which focuses on the differences between PC-12 Legacy aircraft and PC-12 NG aircraft. Moving into the NG requires a separate course since the Honeywell Apex avionics suite is completely different from the previous models; additional systems differences require extra attention as well. Once you understand the differences, you won’t want to look back!
Scheduling varies with each class and number of participants. Here is a general guide on how many days we will need for your particular Differences Training:
1/2 day cockpit orientation / avionics with a GPU (only 2 pilots can participate with each session)
1 day flight training: (2) 3-hour flights PER PILOT
1/2 day ground class with all participants
Note 1: You will need to complete a home study of the systems, limitations, flows, watch the Honeywell videos plus complete a Systems Review Test sent with your Training Materials prior to your class date.
Note 2: Additional pilots are welcome to join and observe on training flights.

Immediately after meeting Shane for my NG difference training, it became clear how much he knows about the PC 12 platform. His training was thorough but not the least bit intimidating. He took an otherwise stressful endeavor and turned it into an excellent learning experience. I would highly recommend Shane to anyone working on their initial or recurrent training in the Pilatus.
As an owner/pilot of a PC 12 NG I was interested in obtaining my recurrent training in the most efficient, enjoyable, and cost effective way possible. For this reason I decided to try 3-Green Aviation and Shane Jordan whose training program is acceptable to most companies insuring the PC 12. I was particularly interested in using my own airplane rather than a simulator for the in-flight portion of the recurrent training. I was able to complete the training from my own home base in two days thus saving the travel time while having the pleasure of flying my own airplane.
To me, however, the most important advantage of the program offered by 3-Green Aviation was the ground school portion.
I found that being able to go one on one with Shane at my own pace allowed me to go in depth into those areas where I needed more help, without the distraction and inhibition of others. Shane’s knowledge of the PC 12’s systems is complete and deep. Furthermore, Shane has an easy manner and is a very good communicator. Never once did I feel pressured to move on when I needed to spend more time on a particular subject. The additional cost of using my own airplane rather than a simulator was mostly, if not completely, offset by the fact that I incurred no travel or hotel expense and saved one or two days in travel time. The bottom line is that all things considered I achieved my objective in a cost effective way.
For anyone whose objectives are similar to mine I would highly recommend 3-Green Aviation and Shane Jordan.
