Air Force One is the call sign of any aircraft of the Air Force of the United States in which is the President of the United States.
Since 1990, the presidential fleet includes two Boeing 747 specially equipped and refurbished so that the president and his team can move flexibly and safely while maintaining contact with the civilian and military leaders to cause no reaction late a crisis.
FSX Air Force One Boeing 747-8i with advanced VC by Alejandro Rojas Lucena and VC textures upgrade by Enrique Cornejo. This gives the B747 a payware virtual cockpit look and now with green leather tapestry on the sides of the seats. It even has a pilot jacket hanged in the rear of the cockpit. The panel.cfg and the aircraft.cfg have been assembled and edited by the Flightsim Workshop Team. Now you can pop up "my icons" window in the virtual cockpit to easily reach the following windows: GPS, avionics, map, ATC, climb/radio altimeter/spoiler switch, auto-break switch, throttle quadrant, clock, descentometer, kneeboard and overhead panel. A new feature in my icons window is pitot heat switch with on and off features (XML gauge by Enrique Cornejo).
The autopilot on switches have green lights which make them look more realistic. Center ATC identification in this aircraft is "Boeing 747 Air Force One". The position of the strobe lights has been fixed. The cockpit view from the pilot's seat is now more comfortable because the distance to the seat is longer. The aircraft has new engine views and new VC interior views. The brakes have a differential brakes system to make smoother turns on the ground. The Air Force One texture is wonderful and Professional textures by unknown, which includes details, real smoke in the four engines, more cabin views, realistic sound and more realistic night VC lights and fuselage night textures.
The aileron parameters have also been improved, so now turns are smoother. This aircraft uses the Project Open Sky FSX Boeing B747-800 model OSX748V4_GENX (MDL), and includes the gauge window Posky Utility to view the main stairs, ground cargo servicing, etc. The engine sounds are edited like the real ones with cockpit ambient. The Flight Management Computer (FMC) is fixed and looks like a payware instrument. The VC includes FMC, Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display (MDF) displayed in the correct size. The virtual cockpit also has an Engine-Indicating and Crew-Alerting System also known as EICAS, Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS), working wipers, cabin lights, fire suppression, avionics switch, fuel crossfeed.
You can also find landing lights switches, taxi light switch, engine generators, APU generator, battery switch, starter switches, de-ice switch, general lights switches. The clock numbers are now in orange which makes them look better and easily recognizable. Assembled and edited for FSX by Flightsim Workshop Founder Enrique Cornejo.
