Microsoft Flight Simulator Pilatus PC-12

Third-party developers provided new images about upcoming aircraft and scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator on top of releasing a new airport. 

We start with SimWorks Studios, which provided an update and new screenshots of its Pilatus PC-12

"You may have noticed on PC-12 videos that the aircraft yoke moves on the ground when the aircraft is steering. This is because the PC-12 has an aileron-rudder interconnect system. The rudder and ailerons are mechanically linked so moving one will also move the other. The purpose of that is to help with adverse yaw and coordinate the turns more easily. While in the air the effect is much more subtle, but enough to make controlling the plane much easier. In addition to that, there have been some refinements to engine power to achieve proper torque for the maximum endurance cruise setting. 

Aircraft lights have been activated and various secondary systems fine-tuned. Next week will see the implementation of the stick pusher and shaker, as well as the final tuning pass to the aircraft's engine. What remains to be done after that are a clean-up of the electrical system and the decoratory items like air conditioning, passengers & cargo, finishing the reds and chocks.

The PC-12 also got a proper steerable nose wheel. Using the pedals will turn the nose wheel 12 degrees, while combining pedals and differential braking allows it to free caster up to 60 degrees off centre."


We then move on to Everett Paine Field (KPAE) in the United States by Drzewiecki Design. Today we take a look at the assets made for the assembly line of the Boeing factory, including an 777-9X under construction.


Lastly, Dominicdesignteam released Philadelphia International Airport (KPHL) in Pennsylvania, United States. It's currently available on Simmarket for $20.97.

Do keep in mind that this is a completely different rendition from the one released a few weeks ago by MK Studios, but this version comes with the following. 

  • PBR Textures
  • Dynamic Lighting
  • Real Ground Markings
  • Custom, painstakingly hand-crafted pavement, showcasing all imperfections including dirt
  • Custom jetway
  • Custom animation object, passenger animation , train airport animation ...
  • ADD AI Aircraft parking code
