Boeing 787 Dreamliner gives you the opportunity to pilot one of the biggest and most exciting passenger airliners in the world. With more than 400 of them on order now from airlines around the world, the Boeing 787 looks to be a true 'next generation' aircraft. Although not scheduled to enter service until 2008, Boeing's latest offering will carry 300 passengers up to 8,000 miles at Mach .85. Its high-tech design will also make it the most fuel efficient jetliner in the world...

Millions of passengers each year traverse the globe using many of the major airlines. Now you too can join the airliner service by piloting one of the biggest and most exciting air-passenger planes in the world - the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner - before it's even flying commercially. The game's developer, Abacus, has painstakingly recreated the Boeing 787 Dreamliner for FS2004 and FSX users to give them some idea of what this new aircraft's cockpit will look like, how the engines will sound, and how well the aircraft will handle in the air.

The new Boeing 787 is designed to carry close to 300 people a distance of up to 8,500 nautical miles. In addition to the outer aircraft and various liveries, there is a full 3D virtual cockpit. The special instrumentation includes a customised Flight Management Computer (FMC) similar to what is found in the real thing and complete easy-to-follow documentation to learn how to use it. The FMC works with the Flight Simulator's built-in Flight Planner and allows you to fly virtually hands-off except for takeoff and landing. This package also includes a series of flights for you to fly that represent authentic passenger routes and schedules.

Liveries include: Icelandair; All Nippon Airways; Boeing House Colours; Sucaba; Lynx Airways VA; Air Florida VA; Pinellas VA; Air Tampa; LSA VA; West Wind Airlines VA; Fly UK VA; Noble Air VA; Atlantic Skies VA; and Boeing 787 Paint Kit with blank textures.

While this release shows all the attention to detail that Flight Sim fans have come to know and love from developers Abacus, the fact that only one plane is available in this release makes it a rather expensive investment, but one that I'm sure die-hard fans will find worth splashing out for.
