    Carenado Releases PC12 For MSFS

    Known as one of the most versatile aircraft in the world. This legendary Swiss turboprop PC12 is rather a wonderful transport, and the sort of exotic and out-of-the-way places to which you can take family, friends and business associates.

    Whether you want to travel quickly in executive comfort, land on a short runway in a remote location or carry large amount of cargo, the PC12 will do all of it and do it well.

    Once off the runway (with a 2650 foot takeoff distance at max weight), the PC12 can climb at 1920 FPM. With reverse beta, landing distance over a 50-foot obstacle is just 1830 feet.

    It was first introduced in 1994, the PC12 is a relatively young aircraft that has managed to earn a place in the competitive world of aviation, becoming one of today’s preferred single turbo props.

    The creation of this plane was inspired by the well know Alps Mounts which transmit strength, beauty and power.

    Single engine, up to 6-9 passenger (+ 1 pilot), 1200 SHP, cruise speed of 285 KTS and a maximum range of 1845 NM are its main features.

    Features

    • 9 liveries (+ 1 white)
    • GNS530
    • GNS430
    • GTN750 integration option (GTN750 from pms50.com).
    • GTN750Xi integration option (GTN750Xi from https://tdssim.com/index).
    • EX600 Avidyne
    • Cold and dark / Ready to taxi / Ready for takeoff start options.
    • Engine and wind sound effects when opening doors and windows.
    • Original HQ digital stereo sounds recorded directly from the real aircraft (engine, knobs, switches, buttons and different elements).
    • Realistic flight dynamics compared to the real airplane. Realistic weight and balance. Tested by several pilots for maximum accuracy.
    • Physically Based Rendering (PBR) materials and textures.
    • PBR materials authored with industry-standard software used by the film and gaming industries.
    • Tablet interphase for controlling static elements, pilots, opening doors, etc.; and starting options such as cold and dark and ready to taxi.

      I'm glad Carenado continues to create new aircraft for MSFS, but I have to say I am disappointed they did not replicate the latest NG model's Honeywell Primus Apex avionics in this latest product representation. I only say so because I spent 7+ years flying this pre-NG version in FSX from Flight1's very good PC-12 and years more in FS9 with their PC-12 version for it starting in 2005. I'd have to have a cockpit for the 2020s to get on board here.

      Reading the reviews and watching some of the review videos out there, I am glad I didn't buy this when it came out. There is an issue with the batteries where if you do a full start from cold and dark they continue to discharge and you get an annoying advisory light on the CWA Panel for your whole flight, and that is truly not acceptable to me. Also the lack of any custom flight model to go with the stellar exterior model leaves me wanting, especially when the same company that brought us the totally awesome Kodiak is doing the same aircraft. So, I think I will wait to see what is said about the competitor's PC-12 before(or even if) buying one.

      It has been shown that a lot of people do not like the full glass cockpits in MSFS due to lag issues, and the overall feeling that "steam gauges" make for a real flying experience. So it is not to hard to understand why Carenado did not go this route.

      Well I started flying real world aircraft back in the 1980s starting with a 172P model on steam gauges and I can appreciate that. However, the world and technology do move on, and I'm one of those bifocal middle-agers who likes to keep up with and be knowledgeable about the latest tech. There was a lot of push back shock when Gulfstream made their G600 cockpit full touch screen glass including the overhead panel.

      My point is that you aren't going to get to Mars on steam gauges from the 1960s in this day in age between NASA and Space-X, and it would be nice if Carenado appreciated forward thinking, not backward thinking. If people have issues with G3000 or whatever lag, that's on their hardware. I've never seen it. Again, I have no interest in buying an aircraft with the same panel I used in the mid-'00s.
