The PC-6 is a utility aircraft designed by Pilatus Aircraft. Thanks to its superb STOL performance and easy-to-maintain design it is used all-around the globe to deliver goods where regular aircraft cannot fly.

This aircraft was designed by Thranda thanks to an unlimited access provided by a PC-6 operator.


First plane to include FULLY configurable 3D instrument panel

  • Move any instrument to any location on the panel, or even between pilot and co-pilot's seat!
  • Supports third party RealityXP GTN750 instrument
  • Save your own presets, and even share them with the community!
  • Instruments can be moved in 3D directly, on a 2D pop-up preview window or by numerical entry for precise placement
  • GNS430 and 530 can be swapped out, but a restart of the plane is required, as 430s and 530s are mutually exclusive in terms of compatibility

Dynamic livery editor (like in the Kodiak)

  • Create 'virtual' liveries, based on one common design layout, and assign any colour to any available paint segment
  • Quickly create preview of livery in real time, using intuitive controls
  • Apply selected livery in real time
  • Option to include/hide manufacturer logo and 'PC-6' sign
  • Option to change the tail number in real time, or disable it altogether
  • Easily and quickly create dozens of paint schemes in-sim!
  • Also supports 12 traditionally painted liveries, all visible in a convenient pre-selection preview window

SkunkCrafts Updater

  • Option to participate in Beta program, via check box in SkunkCrafts Updater

Excellent hi-res PBR realistic materials, featuring true-to-life plate deformation and to-the-rivet precision


Feature-rich elegant fly-out menu with the following features:

  • Realism settings for engine and tail wheel (simplified vs. realistic modes)
  • Innovative electric tug, with in-panel controls to move forward/backward at the desired speed, and steer proportionally
  • Control over chocks, individual tie-downs, covers, internal lights, external lights, engine compartment enclosure
  • Option to enable/disable wing tanks, with realistically simulated weight, momentum, rotational inertia and drag characteristics
  • Option to start up running (all systems ready), or cold-and-dark, for realistic start-up procedures
  • Control retractable landing lights via scroll wheel (independent left/right, infinitely variable tilt, to use lights for both taxi and landing purposes)
  • Ground power unit, with modelled cart
  • Detailed weight and balance manager with visual chart, individual passenger seat weight control, lb/kg unit toggle, CG control, external tank control and the option to save and load configuration
  • Multiple camera snap points, above and beyond what's available by default in X-Plane, so you can perform your walk around checks
  • Adjust your camera's Field of View without having to go to an X-Plane menu, allowing for real-time adjustments
  • Audio mixer - individually control audio channels in real time, so you can adjust volumes while hearing them play
  • Slew control - move your plane around the world, temporarily bypassing flight physics. Includes ground mode and air mode.
  • Dynamic panel control page, with a separate view for the entire panel layout preview, or a per-instrument view, allowing for fine-tuning of instrument position, as well as copy-paste function to quickly replace instruments
  • The 'Misc' page will be updated as progress on the expansion pack continues. Now it's a placeholder page that provides links to support forums, SkunkCrafts Updater, and the Kodiak.

Flight dynamics and systems

  • The PC-6 has quite a few very unique flight characteristics, including the ability to enter Beta mode in flight, and these are faithfully reproduced (this allows for very steep descents)
  • The real PC-6 is considered to be a real STOL workhorse, whose flight characteristics and excellent STOL capabilities are calibrated to maximum precision in the sim
  • Details such as the condition lever latch mechanism and a functional throttle gate add to the realism
  • Sliding passenger doors respond to G-forces, so when returning from a parachute drop, while on a steep descent, the doors will roll shut
  • Over-torquing the engine will cause shaft damage, when in 'realistic' mode. This can result in prop loss, cabin smoke, terrifying turbine shaft friction sounds etc.
  • Smoke in engine can be brought under control by killing the 'Firewall Air' via cabin lever
  • Tie-downs and chocks actually keep the plane from moving, even in high winds

Advanced FMOD-based sound system

  • High fidelity, multi-track sounds with smooth transitions
  • Individual volume control over different aspects of the sound experience, adjustable in real time (while listening to the sounds)
  • Different sounds for front of plane than for back of plane
  • Panning around the plane in exterior view yields awesome 3D audio effects, including 'blade slapping' sound when view is perpendicular to prop
  • Prop pitch produces characteristic aerodynamic aural effects, especially during Beta and Reverse mode
  • Individual buttons and switches in the cockpit each have their own unique sound
  • Realistic electrical sounds, based on bus load and other factors (sounds actually give you clues as to what's happening under the hood)
  • Realistic oxygen flow sound effects
  • Combustion roar sound typical for turboprop engines - recorded from real PT6 engine
  • Outside wind intensity is affected by slip and AoA (the more the surface area of the fuselage is hit by oncoming wind, the louder the sounds)

System Requirements:


  • X-Plane 11
  • Windows, Mac or Linux
  • 4GB VRAM Minimum. 8GB+ VRAM recommended
The plane comes with an auto-updater. Free auto updates for the life-cycle of X-Plane 11.
