Pilatus PC-21 follows a long line of light advanced prop-driven trainer aircraft coming from this Swiss manufacturer. Swiss Air Force uses 8 of these modern aircraft. Powered by a 1.600shp version of PT6 engine and equipped with glass-cockpit, HOTAS and 0-0 ejection seats, it enables the new pilots to transfer to jet fighters without the need to train in jet trainers first. On practice day, PC-21 flew a few of the display routines.
