Manufacturer: Pilatus Country of Origin: Switzerland

Model: Pilatus PC-7



The Pilatus PC-7 Turbo Trainer is a low-wing mono-plane with a tandem seating cockpit, powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-25A turboprop engine.

The aircraft’s capability to cover all aspects of basic training including aerobatics, instrument, tactical and night flying convinced 20 air forces to select the PC-7 to train professional military pilots.

Since its introduction in 1978, close to 500 aircraft have been sold, with the majority still being in service today. It is due to the high quality of Swiss workmanship, the reliability of the components and dedicated customer support, that these PC-7’s are still flying their training sorties, today.

Private customers have discovered the capabilities and high performance of the PC-7. The aircraft’s civil certification (FAA & FOCA) makes operation under general aviation regulations in Europe and America attractive and easy.
