PC-12 Aerial Surveying

Aerial surveying requires an economical and reliable platform with long range and versatility. RUAG Aviation provides an innovative solution to fit the proven Pilatus PC-12 with imaging, LIDAR and photogrammetry equipment.

RUAG Aviation delivers an economical and highly effective aerial surveying solution in the form of the Pilatus PC-12. As owner of the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), we have designed, developed and engineered this unique modification for new and legacy PC-12.

As an aerial surveying platform, the PC-12 combines high and low speed with long range, a large pressurised cabin, fuel efficiency and low maintenance requirements. Its short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities on unprepared surfaces enables it to be based closer to designated surveying areas, thereby maximising productive uptime.


The ability to deploy your aircraft for different missions is a strength of RUAG Aviation’s aerial surveying modification. A multi-role configuration enables easy installation of floor panels in place of the hatches, enabling your PC-12 to be used for regular cargo or transport purposes. And of course, the PC-12 comes with a cargo door as standard.
