The Boeing 777-200LR ("LR" for Longer Range), a variant of the Boeing 777, became the world's longest-range commercial airliner when it entered service in 2006. Boeing named this aircraft the Worldliner, highlighting its ability to connect almost any two airports in the world. It holds the world record for the longest nonstop flight by a commercial airliner, and has a maximum range of 9,380 nautical miles (17,370 km). The 777.200LR was intended for ultra-long-haul routes such as Los Angeles to Singapore.
Variants in FlightGear
- This variant includes FG 777-300ER Overhead Panel, Liam's Airport Operations, and some Cabin Announcements. Thrust and fuel efficiency has been adapted to the 777-200LR specifications. It also has the 3 optional fuel tanks of the real plane. This variant can be installed alongside your current 777-200ER and your 777-300. You can download this variant starting from this webpage (see link at the right side of the page).
- There is another variant of the 777-200LR, done by the brazilian FlightGear community. More info at pt:Boeing 777-200LR.
The cabin announcements can make fun during the use of the Simulator. They include:
Boarding Music, Welcome, Safety instructions, Message before Take-off, Climb Message, Cruise Message, Serve Hot Food, Serve Drink, Serve Sandwitch, Play Movie message, Descent instructions, Before Landing instructions, Message after landing, Emergency Message.
The second version of this aircraft includes an "Autostart" (which is also an Autoshutdown).
For manual start you can follow this oversimplified procedure:
- Turn on Battery.
- Turn on APU knob (click twice, so you hear it starting).
- Turn on the rest of the electrical system.
- Turn on the Hydraulics (all four).
- Turn on all the Fuel pumps.
- After a minute, start the two engines.
When the engines are ready:
- Turn off APU knob (press mouse central wheel).
- Turn off battery
- Both engines back to normal position.
See Boeing 777#Autopilot for the main article about this subject.
The 777 autopilot can be fully controlled using the 3D cockpit switches. For FG 2.6.0 use left and middle mouse buttons to turn any switches left/right.
The usual liveries of the 777-200 seem to fit well to the 777-200LR. The model is almost identical, with the only important difference of the raked wingtips.
