PMDG 747 Boxed Version Question

Recommended Posts

Rob & PMDG Team - I saw the announcement on the AVSIM Main page regarding the boxed release of the Queen. The last item listed states "- Printed manual". When I review the listed features on the Aerosoft site it states - "This unique product comes currently with an extensive electronic manual in the form of pdf files on harddisk after installation with detailed information about flying an airliner. "Is there a printed manual in the boxed version?Regards,Bob Lyddy

If its like the 737 boxed version, there is a pretty nice printed manual, but it is still not the entire thing. Thus, the PDF manual is larger.Andrew

I bought the boxed ed from Aerosoft Canada 2 weeks ago and it does not have a printed/paper manual; it has numerous pdf files on the CD-ROM which constitute the entire operating manual. Aerosoft told me that they expect to have a paper manual in English for this beautiful a/c some time around the end of January which they will then ship to buyers. I hope this will turn out to be the case.Meantime, I have printed out parts of the pdf manual on a laser jet. Not the same as having a full paper manual, but it's the best one can do for now. The pdf manual is very extensive and covers a lot of ground although nothing substitutes for doing-and-learning (and posting on the forums!)Happy New Year.Jonathan

>Aerosoft told me that they expect to have a paper>manual in English for this beautiful a/c some time around the>end of January which they will then ship to buyers. I hope>this will turn out to be the case.>Hi All,We noticed that the desire for the boxed version of the 747-400 was soo high that most of the customers didn't want to wait until the paper manual arrives. So we decided to ship without a paper manual. The paper manual will be send out to the customers of Aerosoft North America Ltd on request as soon as it is available. I expect this will be around mid January.with kind regards,Richard PlokhaarAerosoft North America Ltd.519 227 1379

Captains-To be clear- the "printed manual" is not our 300+ page manual in it's entirety. It is a digested manual that includes some key pieces of the entire manual set....For those who own the NG on CD- it's very similar....

Richard,Can you confirm whether the boxed version still requires an internet connection for validation?Regards,Andy Scholes.

No Internet connection required for installing the PMDG 747-400 "Queen of the Skies".Aerosoft normally does not do that with boxed products.The only thing I strongly recommend using with the 747-400 is the utility "Active Camera". It is not necessary to have, but will absolutely raise your experience with this magnificent airplane from PMDG!with regards,www.aerosoft.comAerosoft North America Ltd.Richard Plokhaar

I have received my boxed version from AEROSOFT Germany . It included 2 small manuals , in german ,one for the plane itself (59 pages )and one for the FMC (51 pages ). I prersume that the english version will be the translation of these 2 manuals ; we will still have to refer to the 350 + pages included on the CD as PDF .MichelCYSSY
