Included with the default virtual cockpit of the FSX 737-800 (there is no 3D 737-MAX freeware cockpit at the moment) modified by Alejandro Rojas Lucena / FSND and Panel V2 improved by Philippe Marion, a sound set for the CFM International LEAP-1B engines created by k-akai.blogspot.com and many other improvements that make this package the best Freeware pack for 737-MAX8. Full manuals and documentation included.
The Boeing 737 Max is the fourth generation in the 737 family of aircraft built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, based on the 737 Next Generation, which it is to replace. The main modification is the installation of larger and more efficient CFM International LEAP-1B engines. Others concern the airframe and the flight controls. The first flight of the 737 Max took place on April 13, 2017, 50 years after the first flight of the 737. By October 2014, Boeing had received a total of 2,326 firm orders for the 737 MAX. For technical reasons directly related to the engines, Boeing has suspended its test flights, even anticipating delivery delays. However, on May 16, 2017, it delivered the very first copy to the Malaysian airline Malindo Air, with a single day delay compared to the initial schedule. Wikipedia source.
