Pilatus PC-6 Proves Popular in China
Fuselages for Pilatus PC-6 Porters are now manufactured in Chongqing, China, by Pilatus Aircraft Industry (China).
The PC-6 is a perfect replacement for aging Russian AN-2 biplanes, of which about 300 remain in China, according to Zhang. The PC-6 is much less expensive to operate and runs on more easily available jet fuel. (Photo: David McIntosh/AIN)
