The Magknight 787: Aviator’s Edition is the next evolution of our popular 787-9. The 787-9 is a long-haul, mid-size widebody twinjet, and the first airliner to be built primarily from composites. Since the first delivery of a 787-9 in July 2014 over 390 airframes have been delivered. The 787 is flown on routes from one hour in length all the way to the marathon 19-hour flights from Perth to London. Which will you choose?
Customers who purchased the initial version of the Magknight 787-9 at simcatalog or the X-Plane.org store can upgrade to Aviator’s Edition for $10. You can find the upgrade code on your original invoice (X-Plane.org) or email sales@x-plane.org to get it.

I bought this several months ago, but have not installed it yet.  I'll get the update and install it later and let you know what I think.

Nothing special - a freeware that improved to payware and continues to improve.

Needs some better VC textures for sure! Great to see more aircraft options available for XPL11.

So far it seems pretty good overall.

I had a problem last night where the right engine switch got stuck on "Start" and the engine would not turn past around 35 N2.   I had to restart the sim.  I'll try it again today.
