Why does your post say released when it hasn't been? Not for another five hours.

time enough to enjoy the video. if the plane is as good as the video, it will become the first airplane I purchase a 2nd time, after Carenado's PC-12.

“The SWS team were flown in the PC-12 and then spent a week training in the PC-12 simulator at the Fly7 Training Center, in Lausanne, Switzerland. Being ableto experience first-hand how the real aircraft handles, we strived to recreate it as closely as MSFS allows.”

This sounds promising and professional, along with help from the manufacturers, it sounds like this will be very solid.

Great news! Instant purchase for me, I do like a PC12! I was going to get a head start by downloading the manual now, but it seems to be linked to the kodiak manual instead.

Kind of crazy that  the sim has been out for 3 or 4 years and we have 3 single engine turboprop business jets released in one month.  I ended up getting the TBM, probably no other reason than the Steve O videos so it seems very familiar.  This is generally not the type of flying I do very much, I tend to be an airliners guy but could not pass up a great addon.  Very much doubt i will add any more in this cateogry.

I’ll be curious to see how it models the beta range, the FSR500 implementation of this makes it a joy to taxi.

Pass.

Is this dramatically better than the not so great Carenado version. 

Roll out the NGX version with the Honeywell cockpit system, and I'll take out my credit card.
