747-400ER (free updates to default)

Recommended Posts

FYI, there has been a lot of action with 744 mods recently

You can download from here:

https://github.com/mSparks43/747-400

Rather than ask whats changed, you can review the commit history

https://github.com/mSparks43/747-400/commits/master

Still a lot more to do ("getting there slowly"), but master branch on the above is turning out to be a really nice plane to fly imho, especially now the worst of the bugs have been fixed.

google "747-441 Operations Manual" for a reasonably suitable fcom

ils left and right will auto tune when you hit the app button as long as an ILS approach is programmed into the fmc (app/dep button)

engage all three autopilots for full autoland - thats still probably a little "dangerous" - the code for autoland is in

but it can

Thanks for the tip, will check out

Hehe. Yeah, I did the full autoland and it flared beautifully and I was sitting and feeling impressed. Then it floated along the entire runway and I had to wrest control back and do a manual go-around. 😃

Use your flight simulators with a well defined purpose...

Don't expect them to be "perfect" or to fully cover all aspects of simulated flight...

Try to enjoy it instead of stressing...

Looks very good!

If you want some inspiration for some details I suggest visiting Britjet's youtubes ( using PSX as a basis for simulation )

http://aerowinx.com/board/index.php?topic=2583.0

Subsonic Flight Training Youtube channel also offers in it's EP8 series some interesting details on the peculiarities of the 744 FMS ( also using PSX )

word not allowed question but humour me. Been to the linked web site but not clear what I need to download. Is it all the separate files or one single file.

Thanks for any help

click the green "code" button then download as zip.

that will download a zip file containing everything you need (except the installers for windows insufficiencies listed in the readme which only need installing once) to extract into your aircraft folder.

You can also use a program called github desktop which allows updating just the files that have changed as more is fixed and added (theres some updates from other people waiting for me to merge when I get back off holiday for example, and vnav is nearly ready),

check the discord server linked in the readme for loads more details.

I believe you need to set/missed setting your position on the POS INIT page
