Real World Airline Configs

Recommended Posts

Gday gents,

 

I recently reinstalled the 777 since I switched to windows 10, and was wondering if anyone had some real world airline settings that they got from real world pilots etc.

 

Real world panel states would be appreciated as well

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

Some liveries in the OC have proper settings that come with them. Pay attention to the blocknote icons, they indicate whether the liveries are configured with the companies' setting.

When you install these liveries and load the aircraft in fsx, it will be properly configured to reflect the real comp)anies's setting.

The Long state is pretty close to what you're going to find worldwide, apart from 77Ls, where cold and dark is also normal.

Could mean all their old settings were wiped in a reinstall of the OS?

 

There are realistic configs in some repaints available at avsim. Christian Mohr is one of the best repainters out there. All the PMDG official repaints with the check boxes that say airline config have real configs. Sometimes a few things are not correct with any airline config, you start with either and go looking online at cockpit pictures to verify. Months ago I purchased an Aerologic bluray and found some settings from PMDG were not correct, I sent a support ticket I do not know if they changed it. But it was minor you wouldn't really notice if track or heading was on the ND. I have OCD for realism though and enjoy getting it right -David Lee

As far as I know, all 777s are different, even the ones owned and operated by the same airline. I visited the cockpits of A6-EBY,ECT and EGM  and many more and noticed that they had different configs even the ones that were delivered in the same year. Qatar though uses the same config across all their 77W and 77L fleet. It would be nice though to have more options to change the VC in the 777. Only option there is now in the VC is the clock and ISFD, that's it.

 

The blue carpet is unrealistic. Only the early 772 used them. I have yet to see a 77W or 77L with blue carpets.  American don't even have carpets on their 77W. The overhead panel is quite different too.

Really, that's signficant why?

Really? Why is that?

Meant to say 777Fs (the ICAO for which is still 77L - I just forgot to reference the F, specifically). Cargo carriers have more down time for the planes. Overnight, they'll get fully powered down.

If all are purchased from the factory, like Aerologic, or Lufthansa Cargo, around the same timeframe, they are almost always identical.  All LH Cargo have a digital clock for example and the same layouts. Qatar, Emirates and other pax variants are different because they buy batches at a time or even from other carriers or leasing companies. But the Qatar and Emirates freighters all have the same settings. - David Lee

Not quite,

 

The visible differences in the cockpit between -EBY -ECT - EGM are as follows:

 

-EBY

 

Bendix Weather Radar

 

ADF fitted

 

No NPS (Navigation Performance Scales)

 

No Smoking and Seat belt selectors

 

-ECT

 

Rockwell Collins WXR-2100 Multiscan (Most common B777 weather radar and also what PMDG chose to model).

 

ADF Fitted

 

NPS enabled

 

No Smoking and Seat Belt selectors

 

- EGM

 

No ADF

 

NPS enabled

 

Seat belt selector only

 

------

 

The -EB* series was the first -300ER batch at EK, the -EC* series was the second batch of deliveries and after gaining operational experience and with a shift in missions being flown by the fleet and new routes being opened, EK began changing some of the standard equipment for new deliveries.

 

In any case, I have  found the PMDG 777-200LR/300ER cockpit and the standard equipment they chose to model to be closest to the EK configuration.

ECT has selector for seat belt signs only and EGM has built in class 2 EFB. ECT also has a class 2 EFB installed. The rest is correct. Thanks.

All 777s are not different. As for VC options you can change the no smoking switch too. What other options do you want?

 

As for the colour of the carpet that's up to the customer. They can take Boeing's standard offering or order something else from the list of options.

I have a bit of OCD for the 777. Never mind. I'm happy the way it is now. 

 

And by different I meant cockpit differences to address the OP on his question about airline configs.

Does Qatar or Emirates have the digital clock option in their new freighters? - David Lee

 

The digital clock is not a customer option.It is and has been for a while now, Boeing standard equipment on the B777 family. It was implemented somewhere between Line Number 1029-1046, I forget the exact number but in any case all frames going forward from and including 1046 are fitted with the digital clock on the PFD.

 

With that being said, EK has 12 77Fs currently, and only 4 do not have the digital clock. -EFD/E/F/G.
