Pilatus Aircraft Limited introduced the new PC-21 training aircraft in May 2002. The PC-21 Expanded Envelope Trainer aircraft is designed to fulfil the requirements for basic, advanced and fighter lead-in training for pilots and, if required, Weapon Systems Officers (WSO).
The aircraft combines the procurement and operating costs of current generation turboprop aircraft with a jet training capability. It has a higher wing loading that is more characteristic of a jet and the engine's power output is scheduled by using a sophisticated power management system.
Zip File contains flying and non flying versions of the model.
