N475MC Atlas Air some incorrect options

Recommended Posts

Enjoying the Queen just got her. d/l the N475MC official repaint and it says it has an official options file. Many options are wrong though. N475MC does not have an RMI, lcd standby instrument or regular instrument, I also think it does not have a taxi light since it was ordered directly for GSS. the weights should be pounds not kgs since it is flying for Atlas now for a long time. Also little things like no push to talk buttons, no yoke memory. Just going off some cockpit pictures of this registration online. Thank you - David Lee

For what it's worth, I follow a guy on Twitter who flies for Atlas, and they do indeed use KGS.

You are correct we do.

As far as I can tell the LCD displays are interchangeable. Although I don't think I've ever seen a mix match though so once the LCD displays go in they change them all I think. We only have one -400F with An ISDF. LCD MCP can also be installed with CRT displays.

From what I understand a lot of Cargo airlines in the US use KG due to the fact that only US uses imperial, but all other countries in the world use metric. So I would not be surprised if Atlas B744 used KGS.

David,

 

How old are your reference images?

Old but after Atlas bought back the global supply systems 747s so it has basically the same setup. searching the registration on airliners net it has a single picture but I found a lot of settings using that. Happy to admit I'm incorrect but some of that stood out like analog standby instruments, old mcp, crt displays, no RMI, no push to talk button, no taxi light, no memory on the yoke, I think an angle of attack dial on the pfd, things most likely not installed recently. Can you put in a taxi light if ordered from the factory not having it? Must not be a normal thing companies do. Brain fart about metric and imperial that part of the setting is right. - David Lee

And now a dump question: why the freighter and not the pax airlines? What do they different?

Look up which airlines Atlas cooperates with and leases its planes  :smile:

Polar Air Cargo used theirs in LBS ...

 

Polar may have, I don't know.  I don't fly for that company.  I fly for Atlas which Polar is a part of and we all use KGS except in the Dreamlifter.
