1960 Pilatus Great flying aircraft that performs like a turbine but less expensive to operate..
Great flying aircraft that performs like a turbine but less expensive to operate. Approx times 7000 TTAF, 1026 SMOH, All Logs. KX170B and Garmin 695 panel mounted. Has pilot operated belly door for air drops. This is one of only two still flying piston Pilatus PC-6. Other one is in a museum in Europe, this is the ultimate BUSH BUSH BUSH plane (piston) we all know who holds turbine bragging rights "DRACO" and not even he can brag about payload. This machine is nothing but cool for the guy that wants the performance but can"t dish out $750,000 plus for turbine and it"s high maintenance cost. This aircraft is eligible for the conversion to turbine that will cost you around $300,000 like turbine picture I added. But why would you want to? The piston Pilatus PC-6 aircraft holds the highest landing and take off world record Registry in the "Guiness Book of Records" for the world record of the highest landing of a fixed wing aircraft. The prototype HB-FAN, with nickname "Yeti", made a landing on the Dhaulagiri glacier in Nepal at an altitude of 5"750m. Plus it got there fast. The PC-6 is noted for its Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any type of terrain - it can take off within a distance of 640 feet ( 195 m ) and land within a distance of 427 feet ( 130 m ) while carrying a payload of 2,646 lbs (1,200 kg).
I can"t believe no one has pulled the trigger on this one of a kind Aircraft. Normal Category Standard Airworthiness Certificate Conversion capability at 1/2 cost of any on market. Someone has to want being the cool kid on the block.
