Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. is an aircraft manufacturer located in Stans, Switzerland, which was established in 1939, but it was not until 1944 that a Pilatus-built aircraft, the SB-2 Pelican, first flew. In 1945, Pilatus started producing the P-2 trainer for the Swiss Air Force, followed by the P-3 military trainer, built for the Swiss Air Force (72 aircraft) and the Brazilian Navy (6 aircraft), in 1953. In 1959, the legendary civilian PC-6 Porter was introduced. This popular utility aircraft and its successor, the Turbo Porter, are still being built today. Pilatus introduced the PC-11 all-metal glider in 1972, of which a total of 322 were eventually built. In 1978 came the tandem-seat PC-7 Turbo Trainer, and to date, more than 450 PC-7s have been built. In 1979, Pilatus acquired Britten-Norman. Pilatus built the first PC-9 Advanced Turbo Trainer in 1984, then in 1994 came Pilatus' most successful plane, the turboprop-powered PC-12 multi-purpose aircraft. TSA Transairco SA of Geneva was procured by Pilatus in 1997. In 1998 Pilatus Australia Pty Ltd was established, while Britten-Norman was sold. In December 2000, the owners Unaxis (previously called Oerlikon-B├╝hrle) sold Pilatus to a consortium of Swiss investors.
