The Swiss Air Force has placed a follow-up order with Pilatus Aircraft for two additional PC-21 turboprop training aircraft.

The $31.17m contract, which includes logistics, engineering services and another debriefing system, is aimed at expanding the Swiss Air Force’s successful PC-21 jet pilot training system.

The PC-21’s cockpit is designed to simulate the functionalities of a modern combat aircraft and enables trainee pilots to safely bypass the expensive jet trainer phase.

The Swiss Air Force took delivery of a fleet of six Pilatus PC-21 training aircraft in the summer of 2008.

Since 2009, Swiss Air Force pilots transfer directly to the F/A-18 fighter jet after basic training on the NCPC-7 and thorough instruction on the PC-21 JEPAS.

Delivery is scheduled for the first half of 2012.
