Description:
The Pilatus P-3 was a military training aircraft built by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. The plane was designed for primary and advanced training (including night flying, aerobatics and instrument flying). The military version was designated P-3-03. It was of all-metal construction with a retractable tricycle undercarriage and tandem seating. There was provision for underwing racks for light practice bombs or rockets and a machine gun in a pod below the port wing.

The first prototype was built in 1953 and flew on September 3 the same year.

The Swiss Air Force received 72 examples of this aircraft while the Brazilian Navy acquired 6. The Swiss Air Force used the P-3 as a training aircraft until 1983, although it continued to be used as a liaison aircraft for another decade. In 1993-1995 65 ex-Swiss Air Force aircraft were sold to a private market.
