On May 2, 1961, the Pilatus PC-6A Turbo Porter first flew with a Turbomeca Astazou 520 HP engine. It is further improved by installing a new turbo-shaft engine, the PT6A Pratt & Whitney Canada with 550 PS, which creates the PC-6B version. With almost 600 aircraft built in six decades, Pilatus ceased production in 2019, again proving that a machine with a simple and durable design can survive many of its more sophisticated and advanced counterparts.

At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.
Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.
Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.
We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
