The Air Corps currently operates seven Pilatus PC-9M aircraft. These aircraft first entered service in 2004 and operate as the main pilot training aircraft for the Air Corps.
The PC-9M is equipped with a comprehensive, fully tandem-capable VFR/IFR avionics package for navigation, communication and identification, using state of the art equipment. The PC-9M features modern avionics including a Head Up Display (HUD) and Electronic Flight Instrumentation System (EFIS) where primary instruments are displayed. The PC-9M is fitted with a Martin-Baker CG-A Ejection Seat which provides safe escape for the pilot from sea level to its operational ceiling at any airspeed greater than 65 knots.
