Product information "Boeing 747-8 Freighter"

The Boeing 747-8 Freighter comes from the fourth generation of Boeing 747. It has more capacity than any airplane in production today. It's the only in-production freighter with a nose door, allowing outsized cargo and improved turnaround times.

Features:

  • Officially licensed by the Boeing Corporation.
  • Completely rebuilt from scratch, building on SSG's experience with its popular freeware 747-8 releases.
  • Accurate 3D external model based on 2D and 3D drawings supplied by Boeing, complete with animations and hi-res textures
  • Accurate 3D Internal model based on 2D and 3D drawings. (Freighter version only).
  • Aircraft meets most of the real aircraft's performance data for consumption, AOA, speeds, flight dynamics, etc. in consultation with real world 747 pilots.
  • Manufacturer’s performance data embedded as tables in the FMC.
  • Realistic 3D cockpit with high resolution, in all render settings.
  • Realistic displays (PFD, ND, EICAS, and MFD with system synoptics)
  • Many systems are implemented with realistic logic, such as electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, engine fire extinguishing, fuel (with dumping capability), wing and engine anti-ice, communications, and TCAS.
  • Electronic checklist system that can automatically detect certain aircraft configuration changes.
  • Complete autopilot functioning in modes similar to the real aircraft's.
  • External lights and strobes operate realistically.
  • Display management similar to that in the real aircraft (information can be switched between displays).
  • First Officer's ND display is independent from the Captain’s, and with a PopUp option
  • EICAS messages based on the real aircraft's with lists for multiple pages and recall capability.
  • Autobrakes with anti-skid system that works in all conditions and includes a realistic rejected takeoff mode.
  • Realistic wing flex and other animations.
  • Window rain effects and animated wipers (viewable from the cockpit).
  • Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) with payload management, fueling and pushback menus.
  • Ground vehicles include a tow truck, fuel truck, and GPU
  • 3D  sounds with Dream Engine plugin
  • TSS (Turbine Sound Studio)  real recorded sounds.

Custom built-in FMC and Navigation:

  • FMC made by FJCC especially for the 747-8i with more than 100 interactions with the flight model, including SIDs, STARs, transitions, approaches, flare and rollout modes.
  • FMC is compatible with AeroSoft's NavDataPro and Navigraph navigation databases.
  • Option to use either a 2D pop-up (resizable) FMC or one within the 3D cockpit.
  • Custom radio communication and audio consoles with digital keypad optimized for on-line virtual ATC operations.
  • FMC performance information based on real aircraft data, including calculated V-speeds.
  • FMC includes capability for autotuning navaid frequencies.
  • Vertical Situation Display (VSD) on the ND (a first for X-Plane)
  • Airport diagrams displayed on the ND (a first for X-Plane)
  • Compatible with the AirFMC app to permit the use of an iPad as an external FMC.
  • Comprehensive Flight Crew Operation Manual (FCOM) and a Quick Start Guide.

  • New strobe and beacon lights, now with ground reflections.
  • Default ground vehicle configuration fixes.
  • Better  cockpit night lighting.
  • Small fix on MCP SPD dial.
  • Tuned fuel consumption and flight model performance, especially the engines so that it is very close to that of the real aircraft based on performnance tables.
  • Autobrakes logic fixed.
  • TOGA disconnection logic improved.
  • New navigation data installer (for Windows and Mac only) to facilitate first time installation in proper folders.
  • Fixed small bugs when loading X-Plane .fms flight plans.
  • Fixed bug that allowed autopilot to be engaged on the ground.

  • Added additional default liveries to Intercontinental version

Version 1.8:

  • Adjusted smoothness of the autopilot during turns using LNAV
  • Adjusted autopilot parameters to address problem of oscillations with glideslope engaged
  • Improved frame rates
  • Fixed issue when entering certain airports such as KORD caused errors
  • Fixed issue of “ghost” runway appearing in SID or STARs
  • Improved “direct to” function in the FMC LEGS PAGE
  • Improved FMC handling of waypoints speed and altitude restrictions
  • Now a TOGA at 50 feet above the ground should result in entering LNAV for the missed approach
  • Improved takeoff abort behavior
  • Improved fuel prediction versus real fuel consumption
  • New SASL 2.5 plugin

Version 1.7:

  • The package is hybrid XP10/11 - the files don't need to be replaced anymore.
  • Added a full custom autothrottle sytem
  • Fixed throttle reverse animation behaviour
  • Climb speed now depending of CI and weight, min speed 320 max speed 340. Now you can set CI=40 and perform a proper flight envelop.
