QualityWings Releases 787 Service Pack 4

QualityWings Simulations have earlier this month taken to their social networks profiles to officially announce the release of a new version of their rendition of Boeing 787 Dreamliner for Prepar3D.

For each Service Pack, we try to bring something new to the 787. The EFB is such a key feature on the 787, and we’ve added two new features that you’re sure to love.

QualityWings Simulations

Titled as Service Pack 4 and Version 1.4.0, it brings numerous new and plethora of improved features to the aircraft. This includes, for example, improved autopilot systems, improved virtual cockpit, fixed issues with the CDU and PFD, or two new features added to the EFB. Furthermore, the exterior model was improved together with the flight dynamics and behavior of the aircraft.

With the new features of the EFB in the new version, you are able to paste a route from websites like Flightaware, Navigraph, and RouteFinder directly to the EFB, and it should then be uplinked to the FMS.

In order to properly update the aircraft, a new installer can be downloaded through the QualityWings website or through the Flight1 Agent. The aircraft can be purchased through the Flight1 website for $79.95 or €67.
