The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental is a state-of-the-art, high-capacity 747 with new engines, new wings and a dramatically enhanced passenger experience.
Containing two versions of the SSG 747-8 :
747-8i Intercontinental Advanced
The fourth generation of Boeing 747, the 747-8i is the largest version and the largest commercial aircraft built in the United States. It is also the longest passenger aircraft in the world.
Officially licensed by the Boeing Corporation.
Completely rebuilt from scratch, building on SSG's experience with its popular freeware 747-8 releases.
Accurate 3D external model based on 2D and 3D drawings supplied by Boeing, complete with animations and hi-res textures
Aircraft meets most of the real aircraft's performance data for consumption, AOA, speeds, flight dynamics, etc. in consultation with real world 747 pilots.
Manufacturer's performance data embedded as tables in the fully functional FMC.
Realistic 3D cockpit with high resolution, in all render settings.
Realistic displays (PFD, ND, EICAS, and MFD with system synoptics)
Many systems are implemented with realistic logic, such as electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, engine fire extinguishing, fuel (with dumping capability), wing and engine anti-ice (including automatic mode), communications, and TCAS.
Electronic checklist system that can automatically detect certain aircraft configuration changes
Complete autopilot functioning in modes similar to the real aircraft
External lights and strobes operate realistically.
Display management similar to that in the real aircraft (information can be switched between displays).
First Officer's ND display is independent from the Captain's, and ND has a pop-up option
EICAS messages based on the real aircraft's with lists for multiple pages and recall capability
Autobrakes with anti-skid system that works in all conditions and includes a realistic rejected takeoff mode.
Realistic wing flex and other animations.
Window rain effects and animated wipers (viewable from the cockpit).
Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) with payload management, fueling and pushback menus.
Ground vehicles include a tow truck, fuel truck, and GPU
3D sounds with Dream Engine plugin.
TSS (Turbine Sound Studio) real recorded sounds.
Custom built-in FMC and Navigation
FMC made by FJCC especially for the 747-8i with more than 100 interactions with the flight model, including SIDs, STARs, transitions, approaches, flare and rollout modes.
FMC is compatible with AeroSoft's NavDataPro and Navigraph navigation databases.
Option to use either a 2D pop-up (resizable) FMC or one within the 3D cockpit.
Custom radio communication and audio consoles with digital keypad optimized for on-line virtual ATC operations.
FMC performance information based on real aircraft data, including calculated V-speeds.
FMC includes capability for autotuning navaid frequencies.
Vertical Situation Display (VSD) on the ND (a first for X-Plane)
Airport diagrams displayed on the ND (a first for X-Plane)
Terrain display mode on the ND, which is a part of the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) on the real aircraft.
Compatible with the AirFMC app to permit the use of an iPad as an external FMC
Ability to switch the displays between magnetic and true heading presentations.
Comprehensive Flight Crew Operation Manual (FCOM) and a Quick Start Guide.
