Boeing 747-8 FCOM

Recommended Posts

Hello! I’m going to buy PMDG 747-8 soon and I would like to know about systems and differences from 747-400. So I’m looking for FCOM or some other documents about the plane. Thank you all for the help!

Kyle Rodgers (PMDG) wrote a summary list of the main differences between the 400 and the 8...sorry I can't easily find it.

If you haven't already done so, have you reviewed the PMDG 747 forum?

I jumped on the-8 bandwagon when it was initially released...at first, I didn't see enough of a difference to warrant the cost of the upgrade (and truthfully, I was a little disappointed with the initial release issues - since resolved). It took me a long time to learn the different systems and warm up to this add-on.

That being said, I would estimate that I now probably spend 80% of my sim time on three aircraft: PMDG 747-8F, FSLabs 319/321 and the Majestic Dash 8 Q400.

I'd recommend that you review their (PMDG) 747 forum...no need to register to view, but, assuming you already have the 747 base, registering should not be an issue.

I believe there are videos on Youtube summarising the differences you are looking for and I think one of them was produced by Kyle Rodgers.  There are too many differences to mention here, but you can always read up and compare them by searching on the Internet.  For example, the PMDG B747/-8 has its own EFB which can be used to display Navigraph's airfield charts and it also comes with its own FCOM manual etc.  It's a great addon.

There was one. Unfortunately, it no longer exists, as he left PMDG and appears to have taken all his videos down.
