G-TRAT arrives home

Our Pilatus PC12 arrived back to our Bournemouth HQ this afternoon. We were there to great it!

G-TRAT is powered by a PT6A turbine engine, the same as the one that powers ‘Dusty’ in the Disney/Pixar film Planes. The PC12 offers a comfortable pressurised cabin for up to 8 passengers plus 2 flight deck crew.

Able to operate into some of the worlds most hospitable environments with ease, the Pilatus PC12 really is like a Swiss army knife! We think its great and we love G-TRAT.

After the aircraft was shutdown and moved into the hangar a few of our students managed to have a tour of the aircraft, getting a look inside at the well appointed cabin and a quick sit inside the flight deck! They agreed, whilst it has similarities with the PA28, its a slightly larger flightdeck and a little larger all round!
