JSG Panels - Boeing 747-8 Panel
80 MB (no refund given) - CD-R Service
This package is an add-on PANEL for the standard FSX ® Boeing
747-400, corresponding to the announcement made by the Boeing Company in October,
2005. It contains the panel itself, all the necessary gauges AND the
aircraft.cfg. Using this panel, the 747-400 has the characteristics of a 747-8:
heavier and more powerful.
- New Landing Window - A new "heads up"
landing window very useful when approaching and landing.
- Large Screen PFD, MFD and MCP - Just click on each window to enlarge/reduce
- Multi-screen - Due to the preceding, windows are separate so the panel
can be used with in a multiscreen environment.
- Moving Yoke - The yoke displays right and left turns and moves back and
- Taxi Speed - You can control a specified speed when taxiing in an
- Complete TCAS with Sounds - Traffic is now displayed in the MFD
according to the zoom of the map and parametersoin the TCAS Page in the FMC.
- Sounds are played according to TA or RA situations: for example: "Climb,
Climb!", "Increase Climb" etc....
Documentation - The documentation included in the kneeboard "CHECKLISTS"
is also readable while flying. Operation - Please note that this software has
been designed to be used ONLY with a Minimum Screen Resolution of 1024x768x32
AND in FSX Full Screen Mode. It will probably work with other lower settings but
the display will almost certainly be impaired.
All the noisy switches have sounds attached to them and you will
hear the clicks, clacks, crunches whenever you move them. Devices such as the
APU also have sounds. The COPILOT reports the movement of devices including the
Flaps, Gear and more as well as calls out the Checklist. The Pushback function
also has sounds of the conversation between co-pilot and ground service. It
displays all the TCAS sounds according to TA and RA situations. Absolutely NO
extra other addon is necessary to play sounds.
All the switches are moving, even those which are not yet
operational in FSX. The brightness of all the windows is adjustable. The FMC
contains all the functions and a fully Automatic Autoland is included in the

- All the switches on the Overhead Panel are
animated and have these main functions:
- APU and External Power switches
- Generator switches - There is one for each engine, allowing each
generator to be disconnected separately.
- Fuel Valve switches - These four switches are operational and control
the flow of fuel into the engines.
- Fuel Control switches - Each switch can select one or more fuel tanks.
It is possible to select the CENTER, CENTER2 or CENTER3 tank separately or
lateral tanks. Plus a Fuel Emergency switch
- Start Knobs - Between 3 and 4 a hidden switch activates Autostart
- Pressurization switches - These are just for fun
- Air Conditioning switch - This is just for fun and authenticity
- ECS Bleed Air - The switches must be correctly positioned to starting
Flight Management Computer
It contains many powerful features, including:
- Follow a loaded flight plan, created by FSX
(or by other software and imported into FSX), both horizontally and
vertically and in accordance with defined speeds
- Flight plan change while flying
- Manage the TAKE-OFF thrusts and the climb thrust TOGA, MAX THRUST,
CRUISE and AUTOMATIC according to the economic index and weather parameters
- Calculate optimum V1, VR, V2 and cruise speed according to the cruise
- Control the VNAV (Vertical Navigation) functions when climbing, cruising
and descending, taking into account economic speeds and altitudes,
user-modified speeds and altitudes and TRANSIT and RESTRICTED speeds and
- Manage the function cruise "economic climb" when the aircraft loses
weight due to fuel having been burned, in accordance with either the ICAO
standard or a user-defined value
- Manage the HOLD function at an actual position or programmed altitude or
at a waypoint with adjusted time or distance and manage the FIX function
- Display all necessary information relating to:
- ATC - flight number, aircraft identification, etc...
- VNAV - speeds and altitudes
- LEGS - giving for each the waypoint, heading, distance and altitude
- PROGRESS - the actual position, the previous and next waypoints and
the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) at the destination airport
- APPROACH SPEED - useful information on the flap settings and
corresponding speed limits required during an approach
- NAV - radios, active and standby, OBS and radials
- COMM - radios, active and standby, transponder and ADF
- POSITION - the current position of the aircraft at the departure
airport and (for fun) the three positions of the three IRSs (Inertial
- Allows direct data entry of all data into all function pages, retrieve
VOR ILS COMM radio codes
- Follow the Approach and Transition retrieved as described above
- Allow the brightness of the display to be adjusted for night flights on
both the FMC, the new PFD (Primary Flight Display) and Upper & Lower EICAS
- Allow the aircraft to be flown manually (providing the ROUTE has not
- Retrieve an Alternate Airport depending on runway length and airport
- Fully automatic Autoland from the ILS capture to the full stop on the
- However it will NOT create and/or directly modify flight plans. (Flight
Simulator itself and other good quality software packages do). Note that the
FS flight plan can be changed during flight using FS procedure.
The delivered package contains the following software and
The Primary Flight Display: PFD - This displays all necessary information about
speed, altitude, attitude and autopilot including V1, VR and V2 Speeds
calculated by the FMC. Flaps Retraction Speeds indicates the flap retraction
speeds for both current and previous flap positions. Minimum Maneuvering Speed
shows the margin of maneuver before a stall may occur. The MDA (Minimum Descent
Altitude) is displayed in green just below the artificial horizon. It can be
adjusted by the upper left button on the EFIS panel. The brightness can be
The Multi Functions Display: MFD - This displays all the information about
Traffic, Fligth Plan, Map , COMMs, Terrain and NAV Radios and for fun, clouds
and various information, either 180 display or full 360°. It also displays the
NAVs, NDBs, ILSs, airports, Alternate Airport, and, of course, the flight plan
and waypoints. Just for the fun, it displays the clouds and 3 IRS's position.
The brightness is adjustable.
TCAS - The TCAS is complete and simulates the actual TCAS. There are several
TCAS systems, such as Honeywell or Garmin or some others, and each of them has
his own characteristics depending on the current standards and aircraft type.
The distances and speeds are different for a low aircraft such as the CESSNA 172
and a big jet such as the BOEING 747.
Moving Yoke and Pedals
They are connected to your manual yoke input (Autopilot is OFF). With the
Autopilot on, the Yoke is connected to the Ailerons and Pedals are connected to
the Spoilers and they both move when the aircraft moves. The Yoke turns from
-90° to +90° and moves back and forth. The clip on the yoke moves up and down to
keep the flaps and gear positions in sight during take-off and landing phases.
You can adjust it with the mouse by clicking directly on the desired position or
pulling it up or down.
Contains all the 4 engines commands, plus functions including pitch adjust,
rudder and spoilers, Seat Belt and No Smoking switches with sounds
Included in the Package:
- The complete software to run the panel
- Documentation in ENGLISH html format, easy to read and equivalent to
more than 100 pages with pictures
- Miscellaneous documents including:
- jpeg pictures showing each switch function
- calculation sheets to compute easily load, fuel load and speeds
Due to Windows and FSX size, you need at least 4 GB RAM memory to
use this panel with Windows 7 ® and FSX ®.
