The Pilatus PC-9C is a contemporary, well praised and versatile turboprop aircraft used by Air Forces all over the world. The aircraft is primarily used for lead-in training, surveillance, and light ground-attack.
A total of 2 aircraft were obtained from the manufacturer and delivered in 1989, and both are still in service. Both aircraft were acquired with armaments, though the type is rarely used in active combat role, as this capability is covered by helicopters.
PC-9’s began supporting the Cyprus Police and Coastguard in the early nineties.
