Designing an aircraft model Pilatus P-3 Swiss aircraft manufacturers began to 1950 year. Initially, the new aircraft was supposed to operate exclusively as the training of air tools, the ability to apply in civil aviation, and the military. However, later, that aircraft has undergone some important changes, which is why it also became very actively used, and as a private aircraft, which led to an increase in popularity of the project, however, the release of the aircraft of this model was very limited - for the entire period of production was built just 78 only copies of the aircraft.

Aircraft Pilatus P-3 has a compact design of its fuselage, this ensures that the aircraft good aerodynamic performance, which in turn, by using a rather powerful propulsion system provides high maneuverability, thereby allowing the aircraft and used as a sports aircraft.

Due to the fact that the plane Pilatus P-3 can be used for aerobatic stunt, the fuselage of the aircraft further hardened, which offers increased operational safety.

The first flight of the air ship model Pilatus P-3 held in September 1953, moreover, largely due to the fact that the project has successfully completed all required tests, and in the course of testing the aircraft no deviations from the norms established by the aircraft manufacturers have been identified already in the same year deployed and the release of the model aircraft.
