MilViz’s PC-6 Porter

ADD-ON FOR FSX AND PREPAR3D

The flying Swiss Army knife

The rugged design and excellent STOL capabilities of the PC-6 places some of the most challenging airstrips on the planet within its grasp.

When it comes to a bush aircraft that can go anywhere, the Swiss-built Pilatus PC-6 Porter has to be top of the list. First produced in the late 1950s, it was initially equipped with a piston engine but later converted to a turboprop design. After several powerplant iterations, it was eventually fitted with the Pratt & Whitney PT6A in the late 1990s. Thanks to its rugged design and almost legendary Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) capabilities, the PC-6 can fly to some of the most challenging airstrips on the planet. It has even had its moment in the media spotlight. Some of you may remember it from the film Air America where it debuted in the jungles in Cambodia.
