Our team is located all around the world, the develop team, tech support team; test team and the user support team all have their own work patterns.
How long have you been around, products you've released etc? From systems to graphics, the 747 was completely overhauled to offer customers an entirely new flying experience. Well as you know Flight1. Jim Harnes our Forum Manager with his dedicated team of Certified Professional support staff monitor customer queries on a daily basis. System memory should be a minimum of 1G. But hey, this is a sim. Overall, the absolutely staggering list of features that ha been included makes sure that you have an aircraft that feels like the real thing.
If the package has more, you will need to download it to view them. Here is a preview video during the development of Service Pack 1 on the Electrical System After examining a few of the systems on this aircraft, I was quite impressed with the overall detail. In the entire development process the only reference data we use are the real 747-400 flight and maintenance manuals. Every type from fighters to helicopters from air forces around the globe Props and jets from the good old days Views from inside the cockpit Passenger cabin shots showing seat arrangements as well as cargo aircraft interior Pictures of great freighter aircraft Aircraft flying government officials Our large helicopter section. Why is all of this important? I am not an iFly salesman! She transported the equivalent of 80% of the human race. The sound volume seems quite low after I entered in iFly 747-400 2D cockpit.
So they are replacing the 747 with the A380 or the much younger and modern Boeing 777 which only has 2 engines but is a lot more fuel efficient. Other systems such as the Electrical System, Fuel System and the Pneumatic Systems are also modelled to a high degree of accuracy. Some values can be entered automatically while others have to be manually inputted. Well, this package gives you that representation that you were looking for in abundance. It's possible that this is a repaint and the dependency below is the base package. However, I would encourage you to review the manuals that accompany this aircraft.

This is what kept me from Aerosoft's Airbus. I can only get engines 2 and 3 to turn off but engines 1 and 4 continue to try and re-light and continuous ignition is turned off. Adam has extensive knowledge using various flight simulator packages and thoroughly tests the files before writing about them.
After spending close to 2 month using this aircraft, I can confidently say that it would take a large undertaking to topple the iFly 747. Then you need to have this package included — it gives you literally everything you need. For 54 euro the Ifly 747v2 is certainly worth the money. The iFly development team also implemented this feature and it works quite nicely. It looks beautiful, but the lack of wingflex makes it look 'toyish' in the air.

On the topic of fuel, one of the unique features of the 747 is that while it is very automated, there is a specific point in the flight that requires the pilots input to ensure that the fuel system is configured correctly for fuel balancing. High accuracy simulation of cockpit and systems and a full load of features make this a premier expansion to Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
Flight 1 offers a refund during the 30 day period following purchase this is something more developers should offer.

Some retraining will most likely be needed in order to fly the aircraft correctly. I think the airplane looks great, and yes the landing gear could look better. That is simulated very well with this model. No sign of it at all when I look for it in aircraft. Well the development team has made it clear that there will be future expansions to the 747 product line and this will include the Freighter versions and from the teaser photo shown earlier, the 747-8 is also on the way.
After reviewing the manuals on how to use the configuration tool and on how to add liveries, I would also encourage you to review the flight tutorial document which is some 90 pages long.

This means that we will have to ensure that the aircraft is equipped with the features that match its real-world airline options.
The first 747 rolled out the huge factory on September 30 1968. As mentioned before, the 747 is an iconic aircraft and few can mistake its unique features. Many of the features that I highlighted throughout this review only scratches the surface of the hard work and programming that has gone into this product. You may be right, for now. A feature that many people take for granted is the autopilot itself. The wing bounces nicely when taxiing. I just installed it and this baby is the sh-- no joke serious sh-- if you don.
