Pilatus

Founded in Switzerland in 1939, Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. has largely focused on manufacturing aircraft for niche markets, including STOL aircraft and military training aircraft.

One of the most popular aircraft that the company manufacturer is the Pilatus PC-12, which has been the best-selling Turboprop Business Aircraft in the World when it delivered 91 back in 2016.

Another popular Pilatus aircraft is the PC-6, which was first flown way back in 1959 and was produced right until 2019, resulting in an incredible 600 deliveries over the years.

If you are seeking to buy ground power equipment for either the Pilatus PC-12 or Pilatus PC-6, our recommendation would be the 717 aircraft tug, the RB60A start power unit, and the RBSC100 continuous power unit, with the latter two being ideally suited to provide the power required for both of these famous aircraft.

Designed and built to save time and money for FBOs, Maintenance Shops, Corporate aviation or anyone needing to move aircraft, The 717 aircraft tug makes it easy for one person to manoeuvre aircraft quickly and safely, making it our number one choice when it comes to moving Pilatus aircraft, especially the PC-12 and PC-6.
