Milviz PC-6 Turbo Porter for FSX Steam Edition
Esteemed Swiss STOL machine comes to FSX Steam
A simple and rugged utility aircraft, the original concept has been proven by over 50 years of uninterrupted production. Milviz presents the PC-6 Turbo-Porter for FSX Steam Edition.
This is our FSX Steam Edition version of our original P3D v4.5 Porter release. It is essentially the same but with no PBR, lower resolution textures, and without TrueGlass. It retains all the other features, including the custom engine and systems programming.
This product can be operated in FSX + Acceleration, however it is not supported owing to incompatibilities with the included Milviz/Rex WXR.
We\'ve paid particular attention to the flight dynamics with a heavy focus on creating an aircraft that is realistic not only in the visual department, but also in the way it handles. The PC-6 Porter is a powerful and capable utility aircraft and we wanted to capture an authentic feel to the controls. Hundreds of hours of testing and expert refinement have resulted in a rewarding, yet ultimately enjoyable, flight experience that successfully mimics all aspects of the real world model, up to and including in-flight reverse pitch \'beta\' mode.
The Milviz PC-6 Porter includes our own highly detailed GPS units based on the default simulator data, however we recognize that many of our customers use other popular 3rd party options for replicating the GPS functions. For the PC-6 Porter, we\'ve bundled in compatibility for the most popular avionics add-ons with multiple configurations available to choose from. Compatible 3rd party avionics include the following:
Please note that compatibility for the above gauge packages includes support for installation and setup of our product only use of any of the offered options requires a functional existing installation of the appropriate gauge. In addition, any gauges we list compatibility for are not included with the Milviz PC-6 Porter.
Using code developed for our forthcoming King Air, Chuck, Tomas and the rest of the programming team have pulled out all the stops to bring you what we hope you will agree, is the most accurate and realistic rendition of a PT6A-27 available anywhere today.
All functions and characteristics emulate the real-world classic turbine down to a tee. If you have experienced one in real life you will recognise the distinctive start up, and the way power, sounds, temperature and internal pressures are all meticulously co-ordinated.
Engine model = Pratt & Whitney PT6A-27
Engine Power = 550 SHP Flat Rated up to 43 ºC ISA conditions
Propeller = 4 bladed, constant speed.
Propeller model = Hartzell HC-D4N-3P/D9511F
Building on our experience with the DHC-2 Beaver, DHC-3 Otter, and the DHC-3T Turbo Otter, our PC-6 Porter offers a comparable level of systems depth and functionality. Our goal is to create an immersive, true-to-life experience for any simulator pilot, regardless of experience. Choose to fly the Turbo Porter by the book, or simply jump in and fly, your choice!
Our PC-6 goes far beyond the default simulator functionality in order to provide an accurate, realistic recreation of key characteristics and systems functionality. The electrical system is closely simulated, with operable circuit breakers present for key systems.
The dangerous effects of icing are also simulated, with serious consequences for disregarding potentially dangerous flight conditions. Ice accumulation can be hazardous to the Porter, leading to airspeed loss and a stall freezing rain can disrupt static instruments and cause incorrect readings.
And at the very core of this simulation is a carefully tuned flight model that imparts the unique flight qualities of this STOL-capable workhorse.
Use of any 3rd party avionics package in any desired simulator is of course also restricted to the availability of the avionics package for that simulator. Please see the respective manufacturers websites for platform compatibility.
The PC-6 Porter includes our custom coded, very accurate simulation of the venerable KAP 140 autopilot. Faithful to the original, from the font used to the replication of servo drives on the trim wheels and the yoke. The logic used in the KAP 140 has been carefully replicated to deliver one of the most realistic autopilot simulations available. A separate manual for the autopilot has been included.
Our innovative Milviz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS) is included with the PC-6 Porter package.
Our MVAMS pre-flight configuration utility runs outside the simulator providing the means to configure and incrementally update individual products to quickly address issues and make fixes when required, without having to download and reinstall complete new versions of the aircraft. This allows our customers to quickly discover and install any pending updates for their aircraft, ensuring that they are completely up-to-date with our latest fixes, changes, or technology.
