QualityWings Releases 787 Ultimate 1.3.1 Hotfix

QualityWings has released a new hotfix for their rendition of Boeing 787 Dreamliner. This hotfix adds some new features, however, it mainly improves the aircraft systems.

The information about this hotfix has been shared via the QualityWings Facebook page, and the developer also talks about how to update the aircraft. Speaking of that, you have three options to update the aircraft – complete reinstall, download update installer or you can update it manually.

In the changelog, we can see a lot of improvements to the weather radar, the developer fixed the issue with connecting to Active Sky, and issues with METAR/TAF requests. The EFB crash to desktop issue when selecting navigraph charts has been fixed, and the issue with dispatch page has been resolved too.

There are some new additions to the aircraft, too. The Navigraph Charts EFB has now adjustable quality, which may improve the performance, landing weight can be now entered in the approach page, and brightness controll in the config has been added as well.

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
