    777 sim limitations

    Thanks pracines, exactly the sort of info I’m after. Electronic checklists, FMS, Failure modelling? Any significant gaps in how these are simulated?
  2. Hi all, just a question to help me decide whether to buy the FF777... I am currently doing a real world B777 type rating, and would like a good 777 sim to help practice with procedures both normal and non normal. I am aware that the community views the FF 777 as badly needing an update. Why is this - aesthetic issues or functional issues? What limitations will I find the aircraft has when using it in this role? Are there any big gaps in the functionality of the Systems, Failure modelling, FMS, Electronic checklist? Just so I fully understand any limitations of the sim before committing a significant lump of cash to it!  Also, are the FDs the wing type, or the vertical and horizontal bars type, and can you swap these over?  Thanks in advance!  Iain.

    777 sim limitations

    Hi all, just a question to help me decide whether to buy the PMDG 777... I am currently doing a real world B777 type rating, and would like the PMDG 777 to help practice with procedures both normal and non normal. I note on the PMDG website they say it is a “sophisticated simulation with nearly every function of its real-life systems modeled in high fidelity’... my question is what systems are NOT modeled? Just so I fully understand any limitations of the sim before committing a significant lump of cash to it! Also, are the FDs the wing type, or the vertical and horizontal bars type, and can you swap these over? Thanks in advance! Iain.
