QualityWings Ultimate 757 for Prepar3D V4, Released

QualityWings has released the Ultimate 757 Collection for Prepar3D V4. Keep in mind, the aircraft is a conversion from the legacy FSX model. Moreover, according to the developer, “Let us stress that this product is still considered an Entry-Level version of the 757. It is not the same fidelity of our 787 offering or even the 146….”

Although the aircraft is a conversion, the developer has included several new enhancements that have also been incorporated into the existing 32-bit model. On that note, owners of the legacy version will need to create an account at Flight One to access their past purchase and product update. There is currently no upgrade offer.

Please see below for a revised features list and update changelog.

  • Radio Stack – ADF1 2nd digit (10’s) not able to decrease value
  • MCP – Mach/Ias toggle disables Spd mode when pressed
  • MCP – VNAV applying thrust when auto-throttle is disarmed
  • ND – Intersections missing triangle symbol
  • VNAV – Speed dropping after 30,000 feet
  • Radio Stack – window close button on upper right corner not working
  • EFIS popup in retro NAV AID-ARPT-DAT-WPT buttons dont light up but info shows on ND
