I would like to revive this aircraft request. The PC-12 is one of the most versatile and reliable single engine aircraft’s ever built. It has the capability to seat up to 12 people. Powered by a Pratt & Whitney 67P 1200 HP five-blade single engine turbine, It has a maximum cruise speed of 285 knts, a service ceiling of 30,000 feet and a max range of about 1845 nm. It has the capability to land on grass, ice or any unimproved field.

With Global coming, this aircraft would be an excellent addition for flying difficult approaches such as those through mountainous regions as well as short grass strips, ice, dirt etc as well as enabling us to take advantage of improved terrain with sloped runways in the future. Even better with the new fog rendering which would really limit visibilty making it much more fun and challenging for pilots or for events such as FNF’s, TT’s etc.

The most impressive feature has to be it’s powerful engines for its class allowing for takeoff or landing roll’s of just about 700 feet as well as it’s aerodynamic design allowing for landing speeds of just around 80 knts, around the same club as light GA turboprops.

Have a look at this complete video and be amazed at just the way it taxi’s.

We need this. I see these fly over my house at least three times a day.

what do you think the process is to get a new plane or livery set up in IF? will Laura setup an ad hoc poll and we vote like starving mad hyenas?? or is it more… structured like once every quarter? i would definitely vote for the pilatus 😍

Generally, the more likes a feature request gets the more easily it is noticed by devs and staff. How they wish to take it from there is upto them.
