The airfield of Stans is also known as the former Buochs Air Base. The factory of the Swiss aircraft manufacturer Pilatus is located at this airfield. In this plant are currently especially the PC-21 and PC-12 constructed for a variety of civilian customers and air forces around the globe. In addition to the hall where final assembly is done, there is a testing facility where regular aircraft will start their engine for the first time. This hall was just occupied by a PC-21 for the Air Force of Qatar which underwent an engine test. In addition to the aircraft for the air force of Qatar, there are currently also PC-21s being built for the Air Force of Saudi Arabia and PC-9s for the Air Force of India.
