Features extremely detailed cockpit with fully simulated FMC, complete TCAS simulation with audio and visual TA and RA system. Also fully simulated Inertial Reference System. 90% of 3D fully operational buttons in VC mode. Three model configuration for better performance. Included are seven liveries. By the iFly Developer Team.
This is the first version of iFly 747-400 and there are some main features:
- Extremely detailed cockpit
- Fully simulated FMC
- Complete TCAS simulation with audio-visual Traffic Advisory and Resolution Advisory system
- Fully simulated Inertial Reference System
- 90% of 3D fully operational buttons in VC mode
- Performance friendly (given the user an option to pick suitable cockpit configuration for better performance)
- come with seven liveries
- Operations Manual with 330 pages
- and more.....
IMPORTANT: The iFly 747-400 WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY without FSUIPC4 4.12 or higher.
- Open FSUIPC4.zip, follow the instruction and install FSUIPC.
- Just open iFLy setup.exe, follow the instruction and install the files into the main directory of FSX
- We recommend to update the navigation database from NavData, we use the same database as pic767/pmdg737. We also recommend updating the updating database from PlanePath.
This product is only compatible with FSX, so of course, FSX is required. For your computer, we recommend you have a P4 2.8 GHz machine, with a 256 Mb memory video card. System memory should be a minimum of 1G. HD should be a minimum of 250MB. Low-end onboard sound chips are NOT recommended. A plugin sound card, such as a Soundblaster Audigy, is recommended.
Q1. I have installed the FSUIPC. however, all displays in the cockpit don't show anything except on PFD says that I need to install FSUIPC with version number 4.1. Why?
A: If you already have FSUIPC version 4.1 or later, then this problem indicates that you are using unauthorized FSUIPC registration code. However, actually, you don't need to use a registered copy of FSUIPC for iFly 747-400 (because iFly 747-400 can function normally with an unregistered copy of FSUIPC). The solution is to simply re-install the FSUIPC.
Q2. The sound volume seems quite low after I entered in iFly 747-400 2D cockpit. How to fix this?
A: Select the FS menu to "select aircraft", and select iFly 747-400 to load this aircraft again.
Q3. With selected ILS Frequency, PDF/ND displays this ILS and iFly 747-400 is also in GS mode. But why it doesn't descend to intercept the GS? Strange that the aircraft just keeps the current flight level...
A: In some special cases, the GS station in FSX gives incorrect coordinates (due to FSX's own problem). You can select NAV RAD page in CDU, and insert any frequency to NAV 1, then insert "DELETE" to delete this frequency. By this way, it can force FS to refresh the GS's coordinates. Please note, it is not recommended to use this method in SLEW mode or in PAUSE state.
Q4. Why there is nothing shown on displays in VC mode?
A: It is possible that your default flying setting is to use VC mode. You need to first 2D cockpit and then switch to VC, so after the displays in VC mode should function normally.

Should you be anything like myself, then you will have no doubt spent a lot of time recently looking into trying to find yourself a remake of the Boeing 747-400 for use with Flight Simulator X. as one of the best flight simulators around, it only makes sense that you want some of the most prominent and important aircraft of all time to be represented!
Well, this package gives you that representation that you were looking for in abundance.
By making sure that you have all the help in the world in getting right into the spirit of the Boeing, this package includes every possible feature that could have been implemented. As a Boeing fan myself it was heartening to see every possible feature included with stunning detail and accuracy.
Some of the most prominent features that really impressed me included;
The extensive operations manual – for a flight geek, it was great to read over 300 pages of intricate and factually correct information about the Boeing 747 and how to fly it properly!
The excellent addition of different liveries. The 747 has been used by so many companies over the years that having just the one skin would have felt like a waste. This made sure that you never had this problem in the first place
The cockpit itself is pretty dazzling – you’ll find yourself easily entranced by the massive array of gauges and features, but just about everything actually works. It makes your life so much easier when you get used to the plane itself, as just about every feature that you could possibly need will be available for selection
Designed to give you maximum performance quality, too – you won’t have to make do if you are on a lower end machine. I use a laptop that is the absolute antithesis of a gaming machine and it is capable of using the Boeing add-on with relative ease – if you can run the normal simulator you’ll have no problem with this
Simulated totally in every single aspect – new cockpit, new features, additional dynamics and a massive attention to detail delivers one of the most fan-friendly products that are out there on the market at the moment
Gives you all of the little additions and features you would hope to see from a recreation of the Boeing 747 – including an Inertial Reference System!
Overall, the absolutely staggering list of features that ha been included makes sure that you have an aircraft that feels like the real thing. Having had the enjoyment of flying in a 747 on many different occasions over the years, this feels just like the real thing. From the features and the way it actually flies to the sounds that it makes, this is a perfect recreation in my opinion.
Looking for a way to spice up FSX and ensure you’ve got hours’ worth of simulation left out there? Then you need to have this package included – it gives you literally everything you need.
