All aircraft are included with documentation, in most cases it's the readme files, manual, doc, etc.
Prepar 3D v2.x : Incompatibilities expected
- All aircraft are compatible P3Dv2 except the Boeing 747-200 Ready For Pushback (RFP) some gauges do not work, including the "Fuel panel" and "sound gauge". - The VC of 777-200ER and 757-200 have no functional click spot and some gauges flash, but you can fly the plane from the 2D panel. - The Anti-missile system does not work under P3Dv2 - press (i) - Probably other bugs but smaller.
El Al is the safest airline in the world as it faces an ongoing terrorist threat, so its fleet is equipped with security systems costing millions of dollars per aircraft.
Exclusive to El Al fleet, an anti-missile system is present on the aircraft (press (i) to activate). Planes with old colors are not equipped with this system, because at that time El-AL did not use it. This system is especially useful during takeoff and landing against short distance missiles, we can not say that El-AL uses the exact system than this pack because the company wants to keep secret its equipment . However, the C-130 Hercules are actually using it. Proof image (the left):
Boeing 747-200 RFP :
For the first time, Rikoooo adapted and corrected the Boeing 747-200 RFP (Ready For Pushback) for FSX and P3Dv1 maintaining the original gauges, this add-on is known for being the most complex that has ever existed in freeware for FS2004, including ultra realistic procedures, hydraulic systems, INS (Inertial Navigation System) etc. You'll have to learn to stake the fly, we have made a video (not yet online) detailing the procedure for engine start under FSX. This add-on is available as a BONUS in this pack but is no longer a part of the actual fleet.
It is essential to follow the manuals that are included in the pack : Start Menu / Add-ons Rikoooo / Flotte El Al FSX & P3D / Documentation XXX or by direct link : "C:/Users/votre_username/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Rikoooo Add-ons"
WARNING : The INS gauge (Inertial Navigation System) is not included in the 747-200, you have to download it separately, the 747 panel is already pre-configured by Rikoooo to work with this gauge Delco Carousel IV-A INS v. 1.51 from simufly.com.
