I flew a PC7 with the Guatamalan Air Force in 1980. Was a delightful airplane, nearly new at the time and i loved it. Very close to the USN T34C which I flew a couple years later. Tandem turbo prop primary military trainers are the way to go.

I flew the -7 opposite it's newer "big brother" the PC-9. A very nice and capable primary trainer. The -9 is the same but exponentially more modern, powerful and fun!
