Pilatus Flugzeugwerke AG, which is part of the Oerlikon-Buhrle organisation, was established at Stans, Switzerland, in December 1939. First product of the company was a four/six-seat light transport designated Pilatus SB.2 Pelican, a braced high-wing monoplane with fixed tricycle landing gear,
powered by a 336kW Pratt & Whitney Wasp Junior radial engine. The pilot and co-pilot/navigator were seated in a separate compartment forward of the wing leading edge, with a main cabin below the wing which could be arranged to accommodate two to four passengers according to layout. The Pelican, which
was first flown during 1944 and failed to gain any commercial interest, spanned
15.50m and had a maximum speed of 250km/h.

Zu der Zeit war einzig ein 440PS Wasp-Junior 9Zyl.Sternmotor aus der Reserve der ALPAR (Bern) für deren Koolhoven Flugzeuge vorhanden.
How did the makers manage to get their hands on a P%W Wasp Junior in 1944? Must be an interesting story there somewhere!
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
