PC-12 ?
« on: April 20, 2010, 12:05:26 PM »
Hi Christian,

Last weekend I purchased the PC-12 for FSX at the Flight1 website.  After the install I could read a very detailed PDF file about this bird.
At the end there is a lot of technical information.  Is it possible with this information to add the PC-12 to the list ?

Many thanks in advance and have nice flights when the EU area is re-opened because of the Iceland vulcano,

One issue is that the PC-12 is not a transport-category aircraft, and was certified under a different set of rules. Its kinda hard for a single-engine aircraft to maintain a specific climb gradient with an engine out.

Christian would have to change the internal logic of the program in order to accommodate the PC-12, and something tells me that that would be a royal pain in the arse.

He did announce that the ATR (not sure if its the -42 or the -72) would be next...once the B757 beta is officially released.

That's completely different.  Christian doesn't have to change the program for only one aircraft.  BTW I use TopCat for the PMDG MD-11.  It's really great !

It doesn't matter that other aircrafts has to be done first.  If Christian "should" do it, it may be the last one, hehe.  I have my time to wait, ;).

Thanks for your reply Doug and best regards,

Peter
