744 Manual

Recommended Posts

This may have been asked before, but do PMDG plan to publish the 744 manual before the aircraft is released (as Level-D did with the 763) so we can all do some studying before finally getting our hands on the 744???

James,if you try the search function on this board, somebody posted a link to a real-world 744 AOM some weeks ago. If not, PM me with your email adress and I'll send you a copy. The AOM is close to 1000 pages, but well worth reading if you really want to knows what's under the skin of the Queen ;)Apart from that, there're a number of publications out there that adress the more practical aspects of flying 744s - I have a copy of Mike Ray's Unofficial 747-400 Simulator & Checkride Procedures Manual here to get me up and running. With that in my book-shelf, I consider myself ready for most normal and abnormal situations while dealing with the PMDG 744 :DAs far as the tutorial is concerned, there once was a post by someone (Can't remember wether it was an PMDG official or not) that basically negatively answered your question. But, don't bet on that, after what PMDG has recently shown, I guess anything is possible ;)Best regards!Jan | MR

The manual is being written on now, as is the aircraft, and whatever finishes first, releases first./sebastian
