About this Flight
Apart from the Hawker Hunter Flight in the Mountains and the Yak-9 Warbird Ride, we are arranging yet another thrilling speed and aerobatics experience in a Military Aircraft in the unbeatable beauty of the Swiss Alps.
The flight route will be based on one-of-a-kind flight routes suggested by the pilot and further customized by your preferences. For example, you could fly through fantastic valleys and around the famous Matterhorn. And of course you can do a lot of aerobatics and military light attacks flight. No matter if you are looking for a rather quiet flight or a wild ride including heavy aerobatics: the PC-7 can deliver both. The pilots are members of an aerobatics display team flying with Pilatus Military trainers. So on summer weekends the members are often busy flying a fantastic display at airshows.
The Pilatus PC-7 Military Training Aircraft Flight
The Swiss made Pilatus PC-7 Military Training Aircraft is based on the Pilatus P-3. The Pilatus PC-7 was used in combat for close air support missions in the Iraq-Iran War, by the Mexican Air Force and Chad against rebels. Sometimes it was delivered as training aircraft only and operators illegally upgraded the training aircraft for combat use. Today the PC-7 is in service with more than 20 Air Forces around the world and on all continents, with Australia suing the PC-9 variant. A total of around 500 PC-7 have been produced.
The PC-7 has a never exceed speed of 500km/h or 270 knots. Flights speed is between 200 and 270 knots. Its successors are the Pilatus PC-9 and the new PC-21 advanced military trainer. The PC-21 has a top speed of 685 km/h or 370 knots and allows that military pilots fly directly with the Fighter Jet without a military jet trainer between. The Swiss Air Force pilots now go from the PC-21 directly to the F/A-18 Hornet, without the BAE Hawk in between. According to the Swiss Air Force instructors, the result is very convincing and the cost is much lower with the new concept.
PC-7 aerobatics includes:
