Pilatus PC-6 Production To End in Early 2019

Pilatus Aircraft will cease production of the PC-6 unpressurized turboprop single in early 2019 as it turns more of its attention to the PC-24 twinjet.

. More than 500 of the multi-role Pilatus Porters have been produced at the manufacturer’s Stans headquarters since 1959, marking one of the longest continuous production runs in the aviation industry. Nearly 100 were also produced in the U.S. under license. Support will be provided to existing PC-6 customers for “at least” the next 20 years, according to Pilatus. The PC-6 is well known for its short takeoff and landing capabilities and general versatility.

“Due to the age of the PC-6 and other certification parameters, it is no longer possible to provide this ongoing development in the scope we would wish,” Pilatus said. “Also in connection with our PC-24 jet, for which series production is currently gearing up in Stans, and which requires our full attention, we have decided that the PC-6 no longer fits our product portfolio, and that, after 60 years, it is now time to cease production.”

Employees on the PC-6 production line will be assigned to the PC-12 or PC-24 assembly lines. Pilatus will accept orders for the PC-6 until mid-2018.
