NEWS! - Aircraft Update : Boeing 747-200 Classic v1.08 by Felis


NEWS! - Felis B742 v1.08 update News Header.jpg


Felis has done another couple of quick updates to v1.08 for the venerable Boeing 747-200 Classic. We are getting now deep into touchup territory as most of the critical areas have now been well addressed. 


Most of focus of the last three updates have been on getting (now all) the doors working, and all doors on the cabin including the upper cabin doors now work. Voice announcements have also had attention. We last looked at the B747-200 Classic at the v1.06 update in February 2022 noted here; NEWS! - UPDATE : Boeing 747-200 Classic v1.06 by Felis Planes


So here are the changes added on including the last two .08 versions released in the last few days, with also including the v.0.7. update in April.


Version (May 22nd 2022)

Checklister speaks twice - fixed
chokes and GPU gone - fixed
added feature: calling FA to arm slides also closes all doors
Version 1.0.8 (May 20th 2022)
Added APU fail number.
AoA sensor will also heat up with Pitot heat ON
added a copy of the EFB as an 2D panel
all doors are animated and textured
roll angle changed for HDG mode in APFD
FA will report doors closed only when they are actually closed
Version 1.0.7 (April 11th 2022)
MCP rotaries now rotate slower to prevent backwards rotation
made body gear turn faster under BP tow. Should reduce the wiggle
viewpoint angle changed to 1200. fixes vertical distortion
ELEV FEEL lamp logic fixed
added hidden button to set ignition in FLt Start + command
added passenger cabin light option to the EFB.
removed DOW correction from load calculations
Animated doors 1-4. Door 5 and upper deck will be later
pressurization will not work if any door or hatch is open
doors cannot open, if cabin pressurized
Added commands for each door
The detail now on this B742 is simply phenomenal! Complex as well, so you will need to study and fly the "Queen of the Skies" regularly to keep on top of it. 
A few images to remind you of what a real "Classic" should look like...
