    They also have swiss civil reg on them.


    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

    look closely at the swiss flag and you will see green and orange of the tri clolour behind it. it's just temporary as the pc-9's are still on the swiss register!

    Hi Guys,

    The reason for the Swiss flag on the tail is simple. As far as I am aware any Swiss registered aircraft must have the Swiss flag displayed on the aircraft, it's a bit like a ship having to fly the flag of whatever country it's registered in.

    As for the temporary HB-XXX reg, that seems to be one of a bank of registrations used by Pilatus while testing out their aicraft, I looked up one of these reg's trying to get more info on the Irish aircraft and I got info back on either an Aussie or Slovenian (can't remember which country exactly) aircraft that had used the same reg previously.


    Regards,

    Frank.
