Freighter Variant

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

To the Developers:

 

Would it be possible to make a 777 Freighter version - remove the cabin announcements and anything to do with carrying PAX instead of cargo. Having a cabin announcement directed to passengers while preparing to leave the Cargo Ramp in a Fedex delivery just doesn't sound right.

The program should do that automatically.

 

When you open the FS2Crew Main Panel, it should indicate if the Pax or Freighter version model is loaded.

 

The Freighter version uses some slightly different checklists, which are automatically accounted for.

 

The PAs should automatically be turned off.

Hi byork,

 

Thanks your for your usual prompt reply. I looked in the manuals to try and find something on this and noticed that the manual version for the PMDG 777 v3 is  v2. Is there an update available for v3  manual, that mentions the freighter version? ....on another point I find that when using the Button version on the 777, after starting engine two, the FO doesn't call "starter cutout" as in the 737NGX. Is this normal?

 

thanks again

It's always best to use the on-line manual.

Reading the Change Log is also good:

Starter Cutout is unique to the 737.  The 777 is a very different plane.

 

Cheers,
