The PC-6 is famous in the aviation world for its Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any type of terrain. (click on the link for more details).

This airframe is perfect as a tug, but also a joy to fly and see!
Accurately reproduced with its typical shape, and has great handling. The strong flaps will allow steep dive back, without acceleration, and land at your feet to get an other glider to tow in the air quickly.

A pure pleasure to fly!
