BOEING 787-9 PANEL, VERSION X06S, FOR USE ONLY WITH
MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X (FSX) ® AND WINDOWS 7 ®

You need at least 4 Go RAM memory to use this panel with Windows 7 ® and FSX ®. You can read details at Technical Information Page.

 

 

EASIER INSTALLATION PROCESS

All the sound files are now included in the gauge sound file. The panel can be installed directly in the aircraft of your choice.

 

NEW LANDING WINDOW

A new “head up” landing window very useful when approaching and landing.

 

LARGE WINDOWS PFD, MFD and MCP

Just click on each window to enlarge/reduce it.

 

MULTISCREEN

Due to the preceding, windows are separate so the panels can be used with a multiscreen environment.

 

EASIER USE OF THE CDU

To SELECT a page or enter data just RIGHT CLICK on the area to set the cursor then left click.

 

MOVING YOKE

The yoke is now turning right/left and is moving back and forth to simulate the pull up/push down.

 

TAXI SPEED

You can control a specified speed when taxiing in an airport. Select MENU then TAXI page. The usual taxi speed when on ground is up to 25 knots.

 

LAST BUT NOT LEST: THE COMPLETE TCAS WITH SOUNDS.

The traffic is now displayed in the MFD according to the zoom of the map and parameters in the TCAS Page in the CDU.

Sounds are now played according to TA or RA situations: for exemple "Climb, Climb!" or "Encrease Climb" etc....

 

 

 

This version contains, of course, fully-functioning PFD, MFD (including EICAS), Throttle, Overhead and FMC. In addition, it also contains:

CO-PILOT, OVERHEAD and LANDING VIEWS plus

THE SOUND PACKAGE

 

 

PRE-REQUISITES:

SOFTWARE: THIS IS ONLY A PANEL AND SO YOU NEED TO HAVE A BOEING 787 AIRCRAFT ALREADY INSTALLED ON YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE INSTALLING IT. A MINIMUM KNOWLEDGE OF FSX® FILE ORGANISATION IS ALSO RECOMMENDED. Specifically, you MUST be able to edit a panel.cfg file.

HARDWARE: this panel is very detailed and sophisticated and so, to be able to make good use of it, you must have a powerful recent computer.

REMARK: some functions are not yet included in the FS2004 ® version.

 

 

 

1.    GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS

 

TIPS: To help you more readily understand which device does what, a flying tip is displayed whenever the cursor is moved over any switch or knob.

 

HELP WINDOWS: New to this panel are a number of HELP windows which can be displayed while flying. See Section 12 below for further details.

 

DOCUMENTATION: The documentation included in the kneeboard “CHECKLISTS  is also readable while flying.

 

OPERATION: Please note that this software has been designed to be used ONLY with a Minimum Screen Resolution of 1024x768x32 AND in FSX® Full Screen Mode. It will probably work with other lower settings but the display will almost certainly be impaired.

 

NEW: Reflecting changes made with the introduction of the Boeing 787, this panel operates in a somewhat different way from the preceding panels in this series. For example, the new 787 “touchscreen” or  touchpad” feature, allowing functions to be selected by a moving cursor, is simulated. Further details on this are provided in Section 7 below.

 

 

2.           AUDIO ENHANCEMENTS

 

PLEASE, NOTE THAT ABSOLUTELY NO ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE IS REQUIRED TO PLAY THE SOUNDS.

 

Suitable sounds are provided for every moving part and every device (for example, the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) and the BEACONS) which make a sound on the real-life panel.

 

The Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS) is also fully operational.

 

 

3.       THE VIEW FORWARD

 

 

Note that NO VIRTUAL COCKPIT is currently included as this is more a function of aircraft design rather than panel design. However, on request we will endeavour to add one if this is possible.

 

4.          OTHER VIEWS

 

The co-pilot view:

 

 

The landing view:

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.          THE OVERHEAD PANEL

 

The Overhead Panel is very detailed and all the functions supported by FSX ® are fully operational. For example, you can actually simulate an engine FIRE and then stop it using the Discharge Switch!

 

 

 

6.          THE PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY (PFD)

 

The PFD displays very detailed information about the horizontal position of the aircraft and the operation of the Mode Control Panel (MCP).

 

NEW: it also displays a map similar to one displayed in the MFD.

 

 

 

 

7.          THE MULTI-FUNCTION DISPLAY (MFD)

 

The MFD displays the MAP, FLIGHTPLAN, RADIOS, VORS, ILS and more in either a partial 180° display or a full 360° display format. In addition, the MFD is combined with the EICAS on the same screen. As usual, the map can be displayed in full screen format if this is desired.

 

 

The MFD displays the TRAFFIC in half or full MFD screen:

TCAS IN THIS NEW PANEL VERSION

 

TCAS: the TCAS is complete and simulates the actual TCAS. There are several TCAS systems, such as Honeywell or Garmin or some others, and each of them has his own characteristics depending on the current standards and aircraft type. The distances and speeds are different for a low aircraft such as the CESSNA 172 and a big jet such as the BOEING 747.

We do not pretend to realize a complete TCAS SYSTEM, but we have tried to simulate the main functions and applied standards for big jets according to TCAS 620. The goal is also to save an acceptable frame rate.

OPERATION:

For easier understanding, in the following, your aircraft is named “your aircraft” and other aircraft which is flying dangerously in front of you is named “intruder”.

The TCAS is operational when “In air aircraft” is selected in the FMC TCAS page 3 (See FMC TCAS PAGES hereafter) and the TCAS is switched ON.

The MFD displays the 5 first aircraft which have the following characteristics in an area of 43 miles around the aircraft. This distance may be modified in the FMC but is limited to 50 by FSX.

1 – At a distance less than 21 nmiles ,

2 – At an altitude less than 9900 feet beneath or above,

3 – In front of the aircraft from 45° from the left to 45° to the right.

A complete list of all the aircraft flying around your aircraft is given in the FMC page 2.

At 450 knots , the distance of 21 miles represents a time of 168 seconds (2 mn 48 s) and a distance of 10 miles represents a time of 80 seconds (1 mn 20 s).

2 situations may happen:

1 – TRAFFIC ADVISORY (TA) : an aircraft is in the area from 10 to 21 miles and at an altitude from 2500 to 9900 feet beneath or above. A yellow message “Traffic” is displayed in the MFD. The aircraft is marked with a yellow circle, a sound “Traffic” is played ounce:

 

 

Picture 1

 

2 – RESOLUTION ADVISORY (RA): this means you MUST ABSOLUTELY react. An aircraft is at a distance less than 10 miles and at an altitude less than 2500 feet beneath or above, in front of your aircraft in an angle of -90° left to 90° right. A red message: “Traffic! Traffic!” is displayed in the MFD. The intruder is marked with a full red square.

When the intruder is in an angle from 45° left to 45° right and flying against your aircraft heading = your heading +180° +/- 20° (see Picture 2) a sound is played every 5 seconds “Descend! Descend!” or “Climb! Climb!” depending on the altitude of the aircraft. See Picture 2 and 3.

When the intruder is at a distance less than 5 nm, a sound is played “Increase Descend” or “Increase Climb”. When intruder is out of the danger area, behind your aircraft for example, a sound is played “Clear of conflict”.

 

Picture 2

REMARKS:

• Using the TCAS when taking OFF or landing may be boring due to the number of aircraft around you. Reduce the number of aircraft to 1 and if necessary the distance and altitude in the FMC TCAS Page 3.

• The TCAS is also simulated by FSX: the aircraft in front of you will climb or descend according to the same rule. If you are at an altitude under the aircraft in front of you the TCAS will order “Descend” and the aircraft in front of you will climb up, and reverse. See Picture 4.

• In case of a RA SITUATION, the rule says YOU MUST IMPERATIVELY EXECUTE what the TCAS orders and NOT what the ATC says .

• In these 2 cases the message displays the aircraft type, distance and speed.

• The TCAS is displayed only in the MFD half window to save frame rate.

• At the end of a RA SIMULATION there is a delay of a few seconds between the end of RA situation and the call Clear of conflict ”.

• In some aircraft.cfg the information is not correct or absent. Either the airline is not present or the flight number or the ident is not correct. This may be confusing when checking the aircraft in the FMC and the MFD map. This does not depend on the JSGPanels panel.

13.    

 

 

 

Note that it simulates the new TOUCHPAD and Moving Cursor of the 787.

 

 

It will:

a)     follow an FSX ® Flight plan (or a flight plan created using other software and then imported into FSX ®),  including the Approach Phase;

b)    manage the Take-off Thrust and the Climb;

c)     calculate the optimum V1, VR, V2 and Cruise speeds according to the cruise altitude, calculating speeds in both knots and mach;

d)    control the LNAV (Longitudinal Navigation) and VNAV (Vertical Navigation);

e)     manage the “Economic Climb” function;

f)      manage the complete Hold;

g)     manage the FIX function, for heading to a specified VOR;

h)    display all necessary information relating to:

ATC - the flight number, aircraft identification, etc.;

VNAV - speeds and altitudes;

LEGS - the heading, distance and altitude for each waypoint;

PROGRESS - the actual position, the previous and next waypoints and the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) at and the fuel required to reach the destination airport;

APPROACH SPEED - useful information on flap settings and corresponding speed limits required during an approach, plus speed and aircraft weight;

NAV - radios, both active and standby, OBS and radials;

COMM - radios, both active and standby, transponder and ADF;

POSITION - the current position of the aircraft at the departure airport and (for fun) the three positions of the three IRS (Inertial Reference Systems);

i)       allow direct entry of all data into all function pages;

j)       follow the APPROACH and TRANSITION retrieved as described above;

k)    allow the brightness of the display to be adjusted for night flights on both the FMC and the renewed PFD and EICAS UPPER and LOWER windows;

l)       allow the aircraft to be flown manually (providing the ROUTE has not been activated);

m)  control the Pushback function;

n)    and last but not least, manage the fully automatic AUTOLAND, from the ILS capture to the full stop on the runway.

 

 

 

14.     THE HUD

15.      

The HUD is the one, very detailed, of the Boeing 787.

 

 

 

 

 

16.     THE THROTTLE

 

The throttle is also complete.

 

 

 

17.     THE YOKE

 

Note that the Yoke and Pedals are controlled by moving the yoke when the Autopilot is OFF but are controlled by the Autopilot when it is ON.

 

 

18.     A NEW HELP FUNCTION

 

A new help function is implemented which allows some pictures to be displayed and the whole documentation to be read while flying without exiting from FSX ®.

 

 

 

19.     INSTALLATION

 

The installation is completely automatic (the package is supplied as a .exe file). By default the panel is installed in:

 

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator x\SimObjects\Airplanes\b787_9\
