62 Pilatus PC-9/A Trainer aircraft are operated at 4 locations within Australia. The aircraft is well known by the public as an aircraft flown by the RAAF Aerobatic team also known as ‘The Roulettes’. The PC-9/A is supported by three main contractors. Airflite Pty Ltd provides aircraft maintenance, repairable item repairs and overhauls, and inventory management services. Northrop Grumman Integrated Defence Services provides engine and engine accessory repair and overhaul services. Pilatus Ltd provides Original Equipment Manufacturer logistics support.

During 2017/18 the focus will be to continue to work closely with the Air Force and industry partners to firm up plans that will ensure that the platform can continue to deliver required capability until planned withdrawal in 2019/20. The PC-9/A platform disposal will also commence with the disposal of inventory and assets not required to see out the 2019 retirement.
