Editorial

This mod was one that was recommended to me by a colleague, having flown it themselves on FS2004. I had been looking for an air med aircraft for a certain scenario a friend and I were trying out, so it felt like fate. So, I grabbed this take on the RCMP Pilatus PC-12. What did we make of it? How did it come across when being used?

I was really impressed, to be honest. I took a lot of time to get used to the cockpit, which did feel a little more cramped than I expected. Within no time, though, I was more or less attuned to every little switch, button and knob that had to be used to handle the aircraft.

Outside of that, I was really impressed with how fast and nimble it was; I expected some kind of trundler, lacking any kind of pace or agility. This is nothing of the sort, though – it was a very impressive aircraft!

The design that it uses comes from the University of Utah Hospital, so it carries a nice big UoU design on it. While I’ve never been to the uni, a check at the real-life version of this aircraft told me all that I needed to know. This is an accurate and honest rendition of the real thing.

Great Graphical Work

However, this is a re-paint only of the brilliant Combi PC-12 made by Brian Gladden. It’s based on the N399AM, too, which was a University-owned version of the PC-12 itself. To use this, though, you do only need this. I found it easy to install and quick to get used to.

The fact it has totally customized panels, a fresh range of features for Virtual Cockpit usage, and also great attention to detail in terms of the graphics, makes this a very enjoyable and engaging aviation experience.

While I can’t say it flies like the real thing, having never been in one, it does feel like a genuine aircraft. The dynamics appear to be up with the real-life profile of the aircraft, too, so I can say with pretty high confidence that this brings the right kind of qualities to the table.

At the very least, I would happily recommend that you check this out for using even just for the added detail and to have another new aircraft to use. I’m very impressed with it, and I think that you will be, too, if you give it a chance!

Outstanding. Flies very well, 2D cockpit is great, 3D is not too shabby either. Highly recommended.
