Swiss Virtual Airforce | Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter

 Copyright Swiss Air Force


The Swiss Air Force utilizes the Pilatus Porter PC-6 as a light transport category aircraft. Its robust design and short-field take-off and landing capability allows it to operate in nearly every region. The Air Force procured 6 Turbo Porters in 1976, and at the same time the already operated piston-engined Porters underwent modifications whereby the new high performance turbo-propeller turbines were installed (PC-6 retrofit).
Today the Porter serves mainly as a transport aircraft for personnel and equipment and is further utilized in scouting operations and in the dropping of parabats. The Porter also aids in combating forest fires with the aid of a built-in water tank. In the event of a war these Porters will be incorporated into a utility aircraft squadron. 2 Porters got lost in accidents.
