A Canadian Journey in a Capable Airframe

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I like to see new places, so this morning I did a VFR flight from Golden, BC to Revelstoke.

Here's the lovely Pilatus PC12.

Yeah that's XPlane 11.  I think it's default but I may have freeware mesh in that area I can't recall.  If it is addon mesh it's Andras' HD Mesh v4.  He's also got freeware UHD mesh but you really need a strong CPU and 16GB ram minimum.

Thanks.  Hopefully the upcoming Toto/LES TBM900 will produce a true turboprop for this sort of thing!

Wow! Great shots Ryan, any environmental lighting mods? Pics are truly stunning.

I was in Avondale, Arizona when I heard what I thought was the sound of a light jet flying above me, a gentle whir of a turbine.  I looked up and was shocked to see that it was a Pilatus PC12 turning final into Goodyear Airport, an airport where I flew a brief ten minute flight in a Robinson R44 copter at an airshow in Goodyear in the mid 2000's.

A graceful propjet, I have the Carenado PC12 for Xplane11.

Hi Ryan,

Superb job as always - man - wish I had a few million to blow - the flying pickup truck might be nice to own...

Regards,
Scott

Nice shots, the HDMesh is as good as Ortho4XP from what I can see.  Saving my money for the TBM900.  I was thinking about the Carenado PC-12 but told myself to forget about it, once the news came out :biggrin:
