QualityWings Updates Ultimate 787 Family

QualityWings has recently updated their rendition of Boeing 787 aircraft, all available models (-8,-9 and -10). The main feature in this update is a Prepar3D v5 compatibility.

However, the P3D v5 compatibility is not the only thing in this update. The EFB available in the aircraft now supports the Navigraph charts, so you can log in and use it directly from the QW 787 EFB. This service pack (or an update if you want) has provided us with a fundation for FS2Crew, which will be available as a separate add-on. That means, we will get a FS2Crew virtual copilot to the QW 787. The developers also reworked the HUD and fixed a lot of bugs, which can be seen in the changelog below.

The update for this aircraft, for all P3D v4 customers, is compeletly for free. However, the FSX version should have a paid upgrade.

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.
