747-400F

Recommended Posts

It looks like the -400F is going to be a great enhancement to the 747-400. Reading the MD-11 Product page I see;PMDG Dispatch Center - Manage the airplane load, calculate fuel requirements and obtain important flight information such as takeoff speeds, trim settings and runway length requirementsWill the 744F see anything equivalent and what performance hit will the 744F make if any? Also will there be any Avionics enhancements with the -F ?Cheers,Paul :-)

Specific avionics enhancements mentioned so far are the LCD screens, Digital MCP readout and the integrated standby gauge.I've also heard mention of the option for AUTO anti-ice but no official comment about that on the product page.

I'm not sure where the anti-ice thing came from, but this will not be featured. Sorry about that.

Ok, must have been a communications issue... sorry about the confusion. There's still plenty of fun stuff that come with the F to keep you busy. :)

Can anyone from PMDG confirm that the numbers in the Digital MCP windows are blue? From real life photos I have seen I believe they are white.Thanks

I think they are a very light bluey grey colour if my memory is correct.We only have the one aircraft in our fleet (G-VROC) which has the digital MCP/ISFD but is a real joy to use as the numbers don`t bounce around like on the analouge MCP so you can read the numbers instantlyregardsJon

Hi Jon.Do you know if all the 744F updates visual/systems/etc... will all roll onto the standard 747Pax? Also will taxi thrust be tweaked/look at?-Paul :-)

Gents-as with the 737NG digital MCP, you have the option (PMDG->Options->Colors) to make those digits any color you want.Presently on my rig, I have selected a nice Fuchsia color, so it stands out ;-) But to satisfy Jon, we can make it Lavender or Lulaki, or whatever your heart desires ;-).

I think the pink comment was asking for a pink display colorAnd you really shouldn't appologize for your English, it is better than many people who have spoken it their whole lives! Yours is great
