Safety comes first

Most importantly, St Barth Executive is an EASA-certificated unscheduled air carrier under European Commission Regulation EC No. 2042/2003. The European Aviation Safety Agency or EASA is the governing agency for all European regulations in the environment of Operations, Maintenance, Airports, Air Traffic Control and Air Navigation. In its fully-integrated safety system, St Barth Executive is proud to comply with all EASA’s higher standard requirements, which consist of:

  • Air Operator Certificate issued by French State under European regulation.
  • EASA Part M – Continuing Airworthiness Requirements
  • EASA Part 145 – Maintenance Organization Approvals

A word about singles:

Multi-engine aircraft have no advantage over single-engine turboprops when it comes to safety.


  • The argument that single-engine aircraft are less safe than multis is based on the presumption of engine failure. However, modern turbine engines are so reliable they are rarely the primary cause of an accident or incident. This never happened for the PC12 world fleet (1800 aircrafts) after almost 7 millions flight hours.
  • European Regulation forces us to fly from take off until landing in case of a total engine failure to be able to glide on a suitable runway all along the route. Our ultra modern aircraft is equiped with the most developed avionics who automatically manages the failure and take the plane to the alternate runway.
  • According to an NTSB report, when engines do fail, serious injury or death is four times more likely to occur in a multi-engine turboprop aircraft than in a single due to sudden asymmetric thrust.
  • Single-engine aircraft don’t experience asymmetric thrust, and they typically have higher glide ratios and can land at slower speeds.
  • As reliability has improved over the last century, airlines have specified fewer engines on new aircraft designs.
  • The U.S. military continues to rely on single-engine aircraft to provide for the nation’s security.

New-generation single-engine turboprop aircraft such as the Pilatus PC-12 NG, however, can have tremendous advantages over comparable twins when it comes to performance and economy.

  • Singles carry a higher proportion of their weight as payload.
  • Singles cost less to acquire, operate, and maintain than comparable twins.

Range example for the PC12NG with two Pilots, 4 passengers at max cruise speed.

The Range

A single-engine turboprop aircraft such as the Pilatus PC-12 NG goes faster and farther than all other comparable jets. In addition, the PC-12 NG gets up and above most weather, which allows for broader destination options. And the other good news is it has 330 cubic feet (9.34 cubic meters) of cabin volume. Who said longer trips were less comfortable?


Departing St Barts or the French overseas departments (Guadeloupe, Martinique French Guyana and St Martin), our aircrafts will connect all the airports included in the above map and others beyond (with scheduled technical and fuel stops).

When there’s a sense of urgency, flexibility and total reliability, the PC-12 NG is the aircraft of choice with its capability to reach the most remote locations, operating from paved, dirt, grass or gravel runways as short as 2,600 ft (792 m) even at maximum gross weight. Whether for business, routine surveillance, medical assistance or leisure, the PC12-NG offers unmatched performances and opens up your world of options to thousands of runways.
