This aircraft package offers several different configurations that include: commuter, executive, cargo, and multimission surveillance. This versatility along with the PC-12's advanced aerodynamic airframe will allow you to explore the FS world with unmatched flexibility.
Tom Aniello, Vice President and CMO, Pilatus Business Aircraft, Ltd. said:
"We'd been looking for a high-quality Pilatus PC-12 plug-in for Microsoft Flight Simulator for several years, and as soon as we heard Flight One had one available we browsed their website to look at what they'd created. We were simply blown away by what we saw. After downloading the model, we were even more impressed with its extremely accurate rendition of the PC-12's details -- right down to the British-accented voice callouts of the CAWS, and our 2001 Oshkosh demonstrator's paint scheme! The flight model is a lot of fun and it's a great way for Pilatus enthusiasts to get an introduction to a fantastic pilot's aircraft."
Known around the aviation world as the "Ultimate SUV", the Swiss designed and engineered Pilatus PC-12 is like no other aircraft in the world today. Whether you're flying nine of your friends to the big game, flying executives to Atlanta in first-class style, or delivering food rations to a short airfield in Alaska, the PC-12's ability to adapt itself to virtually any flight assignment sets it apart from other single engine aircraft.
Flight One Software continues its "commitment to authenticity" with it's rendition of the PC-12. The performance of the 1200 hp Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67B turboprop engine, along with its Hartzell 4-blade aluminum prop, will take you to 30,000 feet as you SCREAM along at 310 mph. The available range of 2,239 NM will allow sim pilots to go coast-to-coast, with just one stop.
The aircraft add-on features include: a visual model with and without a virtual cockpit/cabin, accurate flight modeling, advanced glass avionics suite and a custom GPS system.
The package also includes caution and warning voice alerts in 4 languages; English, German, Spanish and French which can be selected from the included configuration manager. Both high and low resolution virtual cockpit options are available, and Flight1's Text-O-Matic repaint utility will allow you to expand your fleet with customized paint schemes. Also included is a detailed manual, point-and-click interactive tutorial and much, much more.
Flight One has provided a web page with additional screenshots to showcase the PC-12 in high-resolution detail. You can visit the PC-12 Showcase page at:
