Cockpit arrays and instruments built by the best in the business bring you new levels of functionality and interactivity to make your flight experience rewarding and challenging. Flight dynamics programmed by real-world aviation engineers bring a new sense of reality to your virtual skies.
Socata TBM850 - The fastest single-engine turboprop Up to 320Kts, the TBM850 offers the cruise speeds typical of light jets with the efficiency and economy of a single-engine turboprop. The large propeller can be utilized as a powerful aerodynamic brake, allowing landing on extremely short strips and runways.
Built by DAHER-SOCATA (www.tbm850.com), the TBM850 is the perfect blend of BEAUTY, TECHNOLOGY and EFFICIENCY.
What makes WILCO's TBM850 unique?
Both PFDs, pilot and copilot, are independent (like the real thing).
Wilco’s TBM850 has a realistic boot sequence with power switches on both 2D and 3D PFD and MFDs.
Highly readable instruments units.
Using C code, switching controls are reliable and allows functionality and sophisticated/realistic alarms, messages and functions compared to XML-only code found on most other publisher’s add-ons.
Wilco’s TBM850 has VNAV capability.
Wilco’s TBM850 features a fuel management capability.
Wilco’s TBM850 GPS page is easy to access, using a simple PAGE access key.
Wilco’s TBM850 uses a multicolor display for the terrain/TOPO map.
Wilco’s TBM850 MFD has both an HSI style and arc style compass display.
Wilco’s TBM850 MFD map offers a NORTH UP/PLANE HDG orientation option, easy to select via the main menu.
Wilco’s TBM850 checklists are implemented the way they are in the real-world.
Wilco’s TBM850 features an off-course/waypoint track monitor.
Wilco’s TBM850 PFD utilizes a comprehensive pilot message/alert system (different from the FS default one).
Wind data display on the Wilco’s TBM850 PFD.
Wilco’s TBM850 has default settings/preferences capability and remembers user’s default preferences on map displays, compass displays, ?sounds, etc.
Wilco’s TBM850 has access to the entire procedures menu, selecting approach, etc., directly from the PFD.
Wilco’s TBM850 provides a detailed and comprehensive 84-page manual.
Based on real aircraft pictures and videos, Wilco’s TBM850 shows realistic spoilerons that operates as they are in the real life.
Wilco TBM landing gear and bay are highly detailed (based on hundreds of close-up pictures of the real aircraft Wilco took).
With Wilco’s TBM850 the main door has five individual animated security indicators modelled into the holes (green and red indicators which show when the door is locked/unlocked).
Wilco’s TBM850 shows dust and discolouration on the panels and around knobs and switches.
Wilco’s TBM850 uses real Socata sounds, not the default FS ones.
Built over the best plans available and with direct access to the real aircraft.
Elite : standard version with no door and the Elite with a door and Passenger/Freight rear
Comprehensive feature list includes correct operation of the “ailerspoilers” – narrow airbrake-like assisters that improve aileron authority.
Accurate flap operating gear, fully detailed landing gear and even individually modeled ventilation louvres in the airframe.
All doors and hatches open to reveal battery packs and a fully detailed engine bay.
Additional items include an authentic GPU on its own trolley, intake and exhaust muffs, pre-flight flags, prop-tie-downs and wheel chocks (all switchable from the VC).
Amazing detailed HiDefinition textures bring the aircraft to realistic life and include specially developed techniques for rain spotting and streaking, stains and dirt and uniquely rendered “bump”mapping reproduces panel ripple and pillowing!
Correct prop/engine thrust off-set.
High resolution reflective and chrome textures.
Fully animated, realistic pilot movements
A choice of female or male left seat pilots is provided and also a lifelike passenger who switches from inside to outside the aircraft when unloading luggage.
Models can be selected with and without this passenger.
High quality digital stereo sounds recorded directly from the real aircraft.
Models available include options for pilot door or no pilot door in a more basic style, CARGO version.
Using the very latest in modelling and texturing techniques, the interior is practically real!
The panels themselves have leather grain finishes which hold their detail even in extreme closeup.
All placards are reproduced in pin-sharp clarity and can be read at any distance.
Every switch, knob and lever works just like the real thing – many with unique programming code.
Inside animations : yoke hiding in the Virtual Cockpit, pull out coffee cup holders, sunvisors that can be dragged to any position, pull out tables in the cabin,...
Leather finishes in the cabin are incredibly realistic and add to the feeling of quality comfort in the interior. You can almost smell the leather!
Systems: Programmed specifically for this Wilco TBM, the panels include fully functional MFD and PFD units which not only operate realistically but have traffic avoidance systems built in. The big central Garmin 1000 unit is controlled by a fully functional, specially programmed control unit, just like the real aircraft!
