Aircraft Release : Supercritical Simulations Group (SSG) Boeing 748i Advanced

 

If you like your Boeing's big, then they don't come any bigger than the B748i. The B748i is the next generation in the Boeing 747 Series that has a new supercritical wing and is 18.3 ft (5.6 m) longer over the 747-400, bringing the total length of the B748i to 250 ft 2 in (76.25 m), which is now the longest airliner in service and surpassing the Airbus A340-600 by approximately 3 ft (0.91 m

Back in June 2013, The Supercritical Simulations Group  uploaded their 747-8 Series 2.0 version. This was a freeware aircraft and is well worthy of a download into your "Heavy Aircraft" folder. The quality of this aircraft is excellent, but only has the standard (although very well updated) cockpit. This newly released version in payware is a completely total rework of the aircraft from the freeware version.

SSG have always done excellent external modeling and the B748i is no exception, it is very good. and a far more higher quality than the freeware B748i. This aircraft is the i in Intercontinental. Which is the passenger version, It can carry up to 467 passengers in a typical three-class configuration over 8,000 nmi (15,000 km) at Mach 0.855. The 747-8I can carry 51 more passengers and two more freight pallets with 26% more cargo volume than the 747-400.

Cockpit design is highly detailed and functional. A full FMC (Flight Management Computer) is provided and is inserted into the aircraft systems. The B748i comes with EICAS display management
, EICAS messages, synoptic interpretation of the complex PFD, ND, EICAS, Vertical Situation Display, FMC, with over 100 interactions, V-speeds are calculated with PFD indicators, complete TCAS system, EFB (Electronic Flight Bag)

All the landing gear arrangements and animations are excellent.  The Cargo doors open and so do all the main deck doors (but altogether). Lighting is very well thought out with each class of windows having a different colour.

 

There are four liveries Boeing House (Default), Sunrise House, Lufthansa and Korean Air (which now has an order for 10 aircraft)
