Since about 2007 the PC-7 has an new overall black colour scheme. This scheme was first applied to Pilatus L-01 in 2004.
This colour scheme is chosen because of flight safety. Research has shown that a black silhouette shows a better visibility against the sky than the earlier colour scheme of yellow and red.
