    v1.6.2 (4/1/21)

    • FMC fixes (SID/STAR selection, DTO)

      (further FMC changes are in progress)

    v1.6.1 (24/12/20)

    • Custom sounds causing audible artefacts (‘popping’) – fixed
    • Various tweaks to EFB logic for more accurate payload management

    v1.6 (22/12/20)

    • EFB added - provides control over animations, announcements, fuel and passenger load
    • Fuel quantity gauges changed to KGs to match other indicators
    • N1 and TGT bugs can now be set with electrical power off and positions will be saved/restored with panel state
    • Glideslope/localiser capture issues after using RNAV - fixed
    • FDE changes (cruise attitude, stability in IAS/MACH modes)
    • HSI CDI now working correctly when flying from a VOR
    • Minor livery fixes
    • Various improvements to custom sound system
    • Tweaks to cabin announcements
    • New wing views added
    • 300QT GSX profile fixed
    • Engine anti-ice intake low pressure remaining illuminated after engine start at low N1 values - fixed
    • Tweaks to air-con system (e.g. flight deck and cabin fans now affect temperature change rate)
    • Power icon and menu state options can now only be selected when on the ground to avoid inadvertent selection during flight
    • Added further GSX compatibility (e.g. doors will now auto open/close, cabin crew arm/disarm door announcements triggered by GSX boarding/deboarding status)
    • Animation panel now indicates when doors are open, stairs are extended or GPU is enabled
    • Speeds card clickspot will now also set N1 and TGT bugs
    • FMC fixes (including DTO)

    The tablet EFB allows you to:

    • Control the doors and stairs
    • Toggle ground power
    • Set the fuel load in the wing and centre tanks
    • Set the cargo load in the forward, aft and fuselage cargo holds
    • Set the passenger load
    • Set the ZFW and total fuel weight, and check the empty and gross weight
    • Set cold & dark, ready for take-off and turnaround states
    • Trigger pilot and cabin announcements

    Fuel and cargo loads, ZFW and total fuel weight values can either be increased/decreased by 5% using the plus/minus buttons or input manually. Manual entry can be achieved by clicking on the relevant value field, inputting the value using the number keys on your keyboard and then pressing the enter key. The backspace key can also be used. The value field will flash to indicate when an input is being made.

    In addition to affecting the ZFW, the pax total value will also control the number of passengers shown when using GSX.

    Units of measure can be toggled between KGs and LBs.

    The tablet is equipped with a power button and clickspots for pitch and rotation, allowing you to configure the viewing angle. It can be removed from the cockpit using the 'Toggle EFBs' option in the Add-ons > Just Flight menu.
