Aircraft developer QualityWings Simulations has released a brand new update for its Ultimate 787 product for Prepar3D and FSX. The new update took the team a little longer than anticipated to develop due to the scope of the bug-squashing and new additional features, but users can now download it at their convenience.

The new update fixes or improves nearly 30 items including bugs with the weather radar, the navigation display and also with the way the dome lighting illuminates the fuselage in Prepar3D v5. Whilst many of these bug fixes are quality of life improvements, there were also a handful of new features added to the aircraft also. There is now a “Mute on lost focus” option added, along with the ability to change the brightness of the HUD. Furthermore, the landing weight can now ve entered on the approach page, and QualityWings has also made adjustments to the EFB to improve the frame rate performance of the aircraft.

There are three methods to update the aircraft. The first way is through the Flight1 Agent and the details on how to do that are shared via a public Facebook post. Alternatively, you can download the smaller update file or simply download and reinstall the aircraft from a fresh installer. The choice is yours.

The QualityWings Simulations Ultimate 787 can be purchased via Flight1 or simMarket.
