Just Flight has released new screenshots of the upcoming 747 Classic.
Developed for Flight Simulator X, FSX: Steam Edition and all versions of Prepar3D, the package will include the 747-100 and -200 passenger version as well as the -200F cargo variant. All three engine types are included – the JT9D, CF6 and RB211. Each exterior model also features a unique cabin configuration, including the spiral staircase to the upper deck in the -100 and -200, and rolling cargo floor and crew ladder in the -200F. Realistic animations include articulating landing gear, flap and reverse-thrust mechanisms, spoilers and all passenger and cargo doors.
In the cockpit, the captain’s, first officer’s, flight engineer and jump-seat positions are modelled with nearly all switches, knobs and levers animated and functional. The Flight Engineer’s panel features custom-coded hydraulic, electrical, engine bleed, fuel and pressurisation systems, and a newly-developed Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System (INS) is fitted to the aircraft for realistic navigation.
The 747 Classic is designed to appeal to a wide range of virtual pilots. Many custom-coded systems are included to keep you busy on those long-haul flights and to provide the immersion that you can expect from an in-house Just Flight product, but the ability to automate key systems and Flight Engineer tasks, and to quickly configure the aircraft for flight, means that you can also choose to get into the air without hours of pre-start checks.
