Carenado PC-12 updates

Early in the month, Carenado revealed some screenshots of their next Microsoft Flight Simulator aircraft: the Pilatus PC-12. Those screenshots showed the exterior exclusively so this time around we’re getting a good look at what appears to be a nearly finished interior. Let’s have a look!

Cockpit images

The cockpit images confirm that this is an earlier model PC-12 with a more traditional cockpit rather than the Honeywell glass cockpit that later version had. It’s not too surprising as Carenado has previously marketed a PC-12 in other sims and they sported essentially the same configuration.

The rest of the shots are impressive, showing off some great reflections and material quality that Carenado is great at doing with the MSFS engine. Have a look and stay tuned for a release coming sometime soon if Carenado sticks to their usual release pattern.

    Thanks for the notice! I love the PC-12 and hope Carenado improve the flight model over the XPlane version which was really poor without the SimCoders addon.

      It’ll be interesting to see where the PC-12 lands with its modeling. Not sure if Carenado will make use of the new prop physics and CFD modeling. I hope they do!

    An A, for looks just wonder how the flight model, systems are.

      Carenado has been ok at flight models in the MSFS era. Not the best but reasonably consistent.

      Systems we’ll have to see. I suspect things like radios and avionics will be good and engine modeling will be like most MSFS aircraft where it’s very thinly modeled.
