The Pilatus PC-21 (ICAO: PC21 / WAKE: LIGHT) is a single-turboprop, low wing swept monoplane advanced trainer with a stepped tandem cockpit. Created in Second Life by Spijkers & Wingtips, the aircraft was based on the real-life Pilatus PC-21, built in Switzerland by Pilatus Aircraft.


The real-life Pilatus PC-21 features a tandem-seating arrangement (student in-front/instructor behind) in a bird strike resistant glass canopy with all round vision, glass cockpit with three large colour liquid crystal displays (LCD), head-up displays (HUD), Hands on Throttle and Stick (HOTAS) controls and Zero-zero ejection seats for student and instructor.

Available on the Second Life marketplace and in-world, Spijkers & Wingtips' recreation of the Pilatus PC-21 features a fully-featured pilot/co-pilot's heads-up display (HUD), working canopy, folding landing gear, flaps, and realistic lighting (landing light, navigation lights, strobes, and beacon).
