The Pilatus P-3 was a military training aircraft built by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. It was designed for primary and advanced training (including night flying, aerobatics and instrument flying).
The first prototype was built in 1953 and flew on September 3rd, 1953. The Swiss Air Force received 72 examples of this aircraft while the Brazilian Navy acquired six. 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 on the private market.
