The Pilatus PC-12 is a single-engine turboprop passenger and cargo aircraft manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. The main market for the aircraft is corporate transport and regional airliner operators.
Pilatus PC-12 now with 15 skins, also incorporates X-Plane's new XP530 GPS
Our PC12 has the best flying characteristics of any PC12 available for X-Plane and that the cockpit instruments are virtual replicas of the real airplane’s instrument panel. No other model permits performing autopilot-coupled VOR, ADF/NDB, and RNAV (GPS) navigation & approaches using a realistic EFIS for controlling the flight:
Dale H, X-Plane Forum - I migrated from FS9 to XPlane also. The STMA PC-12 is the finest simulation of a single engine, performance aircraft for instrument work available imltho. You will find manipulation of the various controls not to be any issue whatever. The pop-ups are valuable too and should be a standard feature in aircraft with complex avionic suites. I have flown the plane in demanding instrument flight plans and approaches and have been able to fly without being distracted by control manipulation. This may not be the case for the same aircraft offered by other designers. I have found control manipulation to be a nightmare in a few. I cannot recommend this aircraft highly enough.
Pilatus PC-12/47 for X-Plane (Older Versions Available Upon Request)
This Pilatus PC-12/47 turboprop was created from the airplane's Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS), pilot information manual (PIM), maintenance manuals, and with the technical assistance of a skilled Swiss PC-12 pilot. This model is designed to be usable by both casual X-Plane users and professional pilots.
This is a brand new model, built from the ground up for the latest X-Plane version.

The PC12_47G now incorporates AutoUpdater (AU). When enabled it automatically checks for updates every time you load an AU-enabled model or plugin in X-Plane. No more worries about whether or not your model is current. No more complex download procedures or endless inquiries to support staff. Don’t want to update your model or not connected to the internet? If it's a model, simply click on the AutoUpdater Dock to disable it.
How will you know if your model or plugin has AutoUpdater? When you load the model into X-Plane you’ll see the AutoUpdater Dock above the STMA Dock in the left margin of the X-Plane window. A momentary file update notice will appear for each installed AU-equipped plugin in the lower left corner of the screen. If updates are available, a progress bar consisting of small pluses (+) and the file name(s) of the updated files will persist until all files are updated.
