Aiming to be the most detailed simulation of the fabled PC-12 to date, the SWS team have put together their most advanced turboprop aircraft yet. Featuring a highly detailed model, authentic sounds, custom avionics and smooth handling, this is the aircraft to fly in Microsoft Flight Simulator!


Powered by a 1200hp engine and a 4 or 5-bladed propeller, the PC-12 can easily operate out of short, unprepared strips as well as paved runways, while Its superb engineering ensures a smooth flight even in adverse weather conditions.
