    PC-12 Next Generation Cockpit?

    I came across this picture online, and was wondering if anyone has built a PC-12 cockpit before. I really like the way this one looks, and want to find a way to build it from scratch.

  2. Thanks Matt Olieman thanked for this post

    Ken (kennair) built a PC-12 but not the NG. I don't think anyone built a PC-12NG since it is brand new. I agree it looks very nice. The biggest limitation for a cockpit like that is that the avionics might / might not be available.

    It can't be any worst than any other glass cockpit! However, I agree that trying to land in zero visibility, wouldn't be the best time to reboot, or alt+control+delete!

    You might take a look at the Flight1 Cessna Mustang. Not a PC-12ng but similiar layout. It has G1000 Glass with a special large center MFD. The panels can be placed on seperate monitors so pretty easy for pit layout. 1000 nautical mile legs and 320-340 KTAS cruising speed. Plus, they just added Navigraph support and SIDs and STARs. This makes it a very full avionics suite. Also should note that deice systems are modeled as is pressurization. Take a look

    What you have in the first photo is the concept drawing. Here is the real thing as currently delivered around the world. A very sweet GA aircraft but as has already been stated the Honeywell Primus avionics suite is impossible to recreate at this stage. The closest would likely be the Garmin. In fact I have the Flight1 Avidyne package which caters for turbo props but I don't think the standard Garmin does. I mentioned to Jim Rhoads over at Flight1 when they were developing the FSX PC12 that maybe they could incorporate the Primus panel as the NG was just in development however it was far too much coding to accommodate.

    As Scott mentioned the Cessna Mustang could be a good alternative for the light jet builder.

    Ken.
