March 7th 2013 sees the launch of the long awaited and much sought after
The Pilatus PC-21 is a completely new training system developed to meet the requirements and expectations of modern air forces for the next 30 years; both in capability and life-cycle cost.
The PC-21 has better aerodynamic performance than any other turboprop trainer on the market.It is also supported by a more powerful, flexible and integrated training system than any other jet
or turboprop trainer but still has life-cycle support costs equal to current turboprop benchmarks.
The PC-21 is as benign and easy to fly for the ab initio student as it is challenging and satisfying for the advanced pilot preparing for the front line.
Equipped with a pressurised cockpit, air-conditioning, an anti-g system and on-board oxygen generation, the PC-21 provides a comfortable modern training environment.
The PC-21 is capable of sustained low-level speeds in excess of 320 knots; hydraulically-assisted ailerons and roll spoilers can produce fighter-like rates of roll in excess of 200 degrees per second.
