On June 7, 2012, at  approximately 12:05 pm, EST, a Pilatus PC-12 airplane departed St. Lucie County Internationl Airport (KFPR), Fort Pierce, Florida, destined for Freeman Field (3JC), Junction City, Kansas, when for unknown reasons the airplane crashed into the ground near the Tiger Lake Community in Polk County, Florida.  A family of six were on board all are believed to have suffered wrongful death. During the flight the plane was reported to have a ground speed of 255 kts at an altitude of 26,000 feet. The Pilatus PC-12 is a four blade turbine jet prop plane with the engine made by Pratt-Whitney.  The maximum seating capacity is for 12 adults and the airplane has a maximum IFR cruise range is 1560 nautical miles. The airplane was manufactured in Switzerland and was designed the ability of the plane to handle short runways among other attributes.  The Pratt & Whitney PT6 tuboprop engine provides excellent speed, range, load-hauling capability and operating economics. Because of the sophistications of the aircraft there has been debate about single private pilot capability of operating the airplane. Another PC-12 aviation crash occurred on March 22, 2009, in Butte Montana, when a PC-12 crashed.  There was a PC-12 aviation accident killing 9 that occurred in South Africa and another aviation accident of a PC-12 resulting in death near Weert, in The Netherlands. The Nation Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), other law enforcement officials, and emergency personnel reported to the scene of the airplane accident.  All such aviation accidents are under  the authority and  jurisdiction of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).  Moody Law, P.A., investigates and represents clients involving aviation accidents.
