The Pilatus Porter

The Pilatus Aircraft Limited was founded in 1939 in a small town called Stans in central Switzerland where  the Porter was introduced in 1959.


The PC 6 Porter made its maiden flight on May 4 1959 powered by a 340 hp piston engine. During 1961 the first Turbo Porter was tested with a further engine upgrade in 1963 to the present specifications of 550 hp.
The Pilatus Porter is of a sturdy high-wing flying configuration, and is designed for a wide range of uses:

 
Passenger
Cargo
Aerial survey
Search and rescue
Supply dropping
Sky diving
Glider towing
This aircraft is more commonly known for its Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any terrain . It can takeoff within a distance of 640 feet and land within a distance of 450 feet with a payload of nearly 2,000 lbs. At lower weights using less conservative pilot techniques, take-off distances are reduced dramatically. The Pilatus PC 6 is currently operating in more than 50 countries, while halving the cost of operating and almost double the payload of helicopters used for a similar role.
 
The PC-6 can be converted quickly and in line with customer needs for a wide variety of different tasks. With its large sliding doors on both sides, the Porter is perfect for skydiving, ambulance transport and cargo/passenger flights. A configuration knob in the Porter's Virtual Cockpit allows changes that reflect these varied uses.

Versatility
 
Bush flying is something at which the Porter excels. Although bush planes come in all sizes and shapes, a good bush plane will be very rugged and able to take-off and land in short distances, and the Porter fits this bill perfectly. The Porter is a well-proven bush plane. It has operated in some of the rougher environments on the planet - from the jungles of New Guinea to the Sahara desert and to lesser wilds, such as shuffling sky jumpers about in the continental United States.
 
The Porter can carry 12 people (more when flying skydivers) and, for its size, has phenomenal STOL performance. The Porter holds a world record for highest landing of a fixed wing aircraft when it was landed on the Dhaulagiri glacier in Nepal. The Pilatus Porter landed at an altitude just shy of 19,000 feet (an altitude that many fixed-wing planes cannot even attain).
