The PC-6 has become a legendary aircraft, known around the world simply as “The Pilatus Porter”. Its unique short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities, reliability and versatility in all weather and terrain conditions have established the reputation of the PC-6 as a rugged utility aircraft.
The Pilatus Porter PC-6 is fully capable of operating from different types of unprepared, rough and short airstrips, in remote areas, at high altitudes and in all climates. A simple but solid construction, proven systems and features, combined with precision Swiss workmanship result in the highest reliability and lowest maintenance possible.
The Pilatus Porter PC-6 has earned its reputation as a workhorse with a cabin volume of more than three cubic metres and a total payload of over 1,000 kg. Two large sliding doors on both sides of the cabin allow easy access to the cabin for loading and removal of freight. When extra space is needed, the passenger seats can be quickly removed and stowed in the additional seat stowage area behind the cabin. The standard floor hatch enables a platform for a wide range of surveillance functions without the necessity of any design changes.
One of the reasons for the great popularity of the Pilatus Porter PC-6 is its flexibility. With minimum effort, the Pilatus Porter can be converted for various missions: having just operated as a Para Porter dropping parachutists, the aircraft can be airborne again in a matter of minutes.
