If you import Aircarft into AirHauler, and have found more performance data on the net for that aircraft, please post it in here to help other pilots and save them having to find it :)

DeHaviland DHC6 Twin Otter (Model 100 - 300)

  1. DHC-6 Specification Sheet
  2. FAA's Type Certification datasheet:
  3. WikiPedia
  4. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

There are some variances between the above sources, but are fairly small.

Pilatus PC-12

  1. Pilatus Factory Specification Sheet
  2. ePaper Specification Sheet
While these are for the PC-12NG, they are fairly equivalent to the currently flying PC-12's.

    The specific performance information that is needed is:
    1. Cruise Speed (knots)
    2. Fuel Consumption (Gallons/hour)
    3. Range (nautical miles)
    4. Vfe - maximum speed flaps extension
    5. Vle - maximum speed landing gear
    You may need to dig around in the sources given here in this thread to find this specific info.
