The QEAF selected the PC-21 as their fixed wing basic and advanced training aircraft, after a thorough evaluation both in Switzerland and in Qatar. The PC-21 was deemed to be the very best aircraft and Training System of all options available on the market today. The PC-21 will support the training of their young aviators in the newly established Air Force Academy in Qatar. The QEAF Air Academy will receive their first aircraft in the middle of 2014 and training will start mid-2015. Operations will be directly supported by Pilatus under a long-term performance based support contract.

With the Qatar Emiri Air Force, Pilatus has added yet another new customer to the fold and we are delighted to welcome them to the growing ranks of world class Air Forces operating our platforms. We are also honoured by the trust placed in us to support the QEAF in their ambitious venture through this contract award.
