A PC-12 NG with special Formula 1 livery showing the Sauber C31 racing car, will fly the Sauber F1 Team direct to the racetracks of Europe in 2012.



The PILATUS PC-12 NG took off on its first mission last weekend, flying the eight-man team, plus team manager Peter Sauber, to the first race in Spain. The aircraft landed in Sabadell, a small aerodrome with a 1000 m runway, just a few kilometres from the circuit.

Peter Sauber sums things up nicely: “One of the best features of the PC-12 is its ability to land on, and take off from, very short runways. It leaves us free to avoid the big, inefficient airports. We were back at the aircraft within a few minutes of the race finishing and airborne shortly afterwards, thanks to the smooth air traffic control service. We really can save a lot of time, and that obviously means greater efficiency and a better quality of life for our top management and chief engineers.”
