Magknight updated Boeing 787-9 to Version 1.4.1

Developers from Magknight Studio today released a new major update of the Magknight 787 Aviator’s Edition. The main features are, for example, a new updated engine model and fuselage and also a 3D cabin, custom autothrottle integration or interim CDU. FMOD sound pack created by “AudioBirdXP” is now featured in the aircraft also, bringing users realistic sound effects. And of course, this update has many other very interesting things, for example, the new cockpit lighting and PA announcements.

A piece of very important information for current users, who used liveries for version 1.40 is, that the liveries won’t work on this new version. Here, you can find the compatible liveries.
