FSX – Virgin Galactic Boeing 747-8i with advanced VC by Alejandro Rojas Lucena and VC textures upgrade by Enrique Cornejo. This gives the B747 a payware virtual cockpit look and now with green leather tapestry on the sides of the seats. It even has a pilot jacket hanged in the rear of the cockpit. The panel.cfg and the aircraft.cfg have been assembled and edited by the Flightsim Workshop Team. Now you can pop up “my icons” window in the virtual cockpit to easily reach the following windows: GPS, avionics, map, ATC, climb/radio altimeter/spoiler switch, auto-break switch, throttle quadrant, clock, descentometer, kneeboard and overhead panel. A new feature in my icons window is pitot heat switch with on and off features (XML gauge by Enrique Cornejo). The autopilot on switches have green lights which make them look more realistic.
Center ATC identification in this aircraft is “Boeing 747“. The position of the strobe lights has been fixed. The cockpit view from the pilot’s seat is now more comfortable because the distance to the seat is longer. The aircraft has new engine views and new VC interior views. The brakes have a differential brakes system to make smoother turns on the ground. The Virgin Galactic Spaceship texture is wonderful and it has a unique paint scheme by Enrique Cornejo which includes details such as stains caused by humidity and other details just like a real aircraft, real smoke in the four engines, more cabin views, realistic sound and more realistic night VC lights and fuselage night textures. The aileron parameters have also been improved, so now turns are smoother.
This aircraft uses the Project Open Sky FSX Boeing B747-800 model OSX748V4_GENX (MDL), and includes the gauge window Posky Utility to view the main stairs, ground cargo servicing, etc. The engine sounds are edited like the real ones with cockpit ambient. The Flight Management Computer (FMC) is fixed and looks like a payware instrument. The VC includes FMC, Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display (MDF) displayed in the correct size. The virtual cockpit also has an Engine-Indicating and Crew-Alerting System also known as EICAS, Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS), working wipers, cabin lights, fire suppression, avionics switch, fuel crossfeed. You can also find landing lights switches, taxi light switch, engine generators, APU generator, battery switch, starter switches, de-ice switch, general lights switches. The clock numbers are now in orange which makes them look better and easily recognizable. Assembled and edited for FSX by Flightsim Workshop Founder Enrique Cornejo.
