Description
Powered by a 1200hp engine and a 4 or 5-bladed propeller, the PC-12 can easily operate out of short, unprepared strips as well as paved runways, while Its superb engineering ensures a smooth flight even in adverse weather conditions. Versatile by design, the PC-12 can be configured for use an executive transport, commuter, cargo carrier or even air ambulance. Developed with the help of Pilatus Aircraft and Fly7 Executive Aviation, the SWS PC-12/47 aspires to be our best and most varied turboprop rendition in Microsoft Flight Simulator to date!

Visuals: High quality model of the aircraft’s exterior with many custom animations:

• 4 and 5-bladed propeller
• Trailing link landing gear
• Nose wheel steering with free castering
• Engine bypass flap and springs (connecting to landing gear)
• Custom flap and actuator animations
• Trim tabs
• Animated de-icing boots
• Prop beta/reverse
• Propeller vortices
• Preflight: engine cowling, fuel filter compartment, tail compartment
• Horizontal stabilator trim
• Covers with strips reacting to wind speed, direction and inclined parking
• 13 total liveries, with nine custom and one white livery in different interior configurations
• Three different cabin configurations with -again- many custom animations

Flight model and systems: The SWS team were flown in the PC-12 and then spent a week training in the PC-12 simulator at the Fly7 Training Center, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Being ableto experience first-hand how the real aircraft handles, we strived to recreate it as closely as MSFS allows. Some highlights of the flight model include:

• Engine torque effect on yaw
• Correct handling response
• Exceptional stability in inclement weather
• Realistic flap deployment timings, lift and drag effects, including crosswind limitations
• Nose down approach attitude, correctly reproduced down to flaps 30 (MSFS limitation at 40)
• Custom nose wheel steering with free-castering operation when differential brakes are used
• Fast engine response to pilot input
• Manual override control
• Correct propeller beta and reverse operation
• Custom ITT simulation including altitude limiting

Systems: Numerous custom systems are included with the SWS PC-12:

• Custom EFIS50
• Revue Thommen DC20 Chronometer
• Custom aileron-rudder interconnect system
• Custom yaw damper
• Stick shaker and pusher
• Environmental Control System
• Cabin Pressurisation Control System
• Usable circuit breakers
• Compatibility with PMS50 GTN, TDS GTNXi and Sky4Sim tablet (See README.txt)

Sounds: The SWS PC-12 contains more than 2800 authentic sounds recorded from multiple real aircraft to realistically represent the aircraft inside and out:

• Different sounds for 4 and 5-bladed propellers
• Authentic engine sounds
• Gear and flap actuators
• Air conditioning
• Aircraft electromechanical sounds such as pumps, inverters
• Exits
• Aural warnings and avionic sounds
• Audible switches, levers, doors, windows – if it moves, it can be heard!
• Many ambient sounds
