The target was Pilatus PC-12 NG with the glass cockpit using what I found similar enough and I managed to make it work good enough.
I won't post a detailed changelog like I usually do, the changes are more or less similar with updates I have done with previous aircraft, if someone finds these changes useful, enjoy!

Hello, are you still developing this model aircraft? I have used it a little, the interior looks very nice, I just wonder, the audio, what is the abrasive static sounding hiss noise over the engine sounds? Is that the radio or something? How can i turn that off?

Also, an elevator trim tab would be a welcome addition to this, I'm honestly surprised more people don't use this plane, it is very popular in real life.

if you think it may be a radio, use the radio dialog and switch the standby freqs on both to see if it goes away...

"Why not?" said Gurder.

It seems to be related to the engine. If I turn the volume down really low, it's tolerable for a little cruise.

they could be pretty noisy, i guess... have you tried the King Air? i believe there's one in the available craft... the PC-12 is comparable to it but the KA may be quieter... it was only in recent months that articles talking about the PC-12's internal noise reduction were applied and tested...

now that i've had a chance to fly this craft, if you're talking about the whitenoise hissing, it is coming from COM2 even though the panel indicates it is turned off... use F12 and you can switch it to the standby freq and it'll go away...

the craft needs some love, though... i see an effect error in the console and it is also referencing things from a different craft... if you don't have that other craft installed, they won't appear/work with this one...

the KAP-140 AP needs some work interfacing with the craft, too... it doesn't want to follow the heading bug like it should... also the digits for aren't right for some reason... there's two decimals showing and the climb rate shows 9xxx when adjusting it...

aside from that, the radio noise is the only thing i heard that was easily handled... the engine noise sounds fine to me... not too loud and not hissing which was radio noise...

Ok thank you for testing it out. I really think this a beautiful modern aircraft and if I had any skills in developing sim aircraft I would attempt to refine/fix this one.

Also, the Cessna Denali should be released someday possibly this year and that plane is almost an exact copy of the PC-12 so if this PC-12 get decently developed, whoever does it would have a easy time making the Denali (I have no idea how sim development works obviously :D )
