- Fixes low FPS problem in some Windows machines.
- Fixes speed setting lower when autothrottle is in use.
- Fixes DME waypoint bug when loading flight plans.
- Improves autoland behavior, especially on rollout.
- Small fix in the speed limit with flaps on the PFD.
- New strobe and beacon lights, now with ground reflections.
- Default ground vehicle configuration fixes.
- Better cockpit night lighting.
- Small fix on MCP SPD dial.
- Tuned fuel consumption and flight model performance, especially the engines so that it is very close to that of the real aircraft based on performnance tables.

Version 1.9 (April 1st 2018)
Changes in this update include changes for improved compatibility with the latest released version of X-Plane 11:
- Fine tuned autoland to handle tailwind conditions
- Fixed a bug that resulted in FMS not respecting altitude restrictions during descent
- Floating window position and size is now saved when they are closed
- Added additional default liveries to Intercontinental version.
Version 1.8.1 (Feb 24th 2018)
FMC CDU and Right ND now can be set in an X-Plane external window and/or monitor
Accurate flaps retract and extension times
More accurate nose landing gear steering
Engine performance tuned
Improved fuel calculations
Improved autoland behavior
RTE 2 line entering fixed
Lat/lon entries fixed
Landing gear door animation fixed
Throttles now will not move if TOGA is selected but engines are off
Wind vector on ND now correctly showing only above a certain groundspeed
Version 1.8 (Nov 25th 2017)
No neeed to redownload the entore file, run the x-updater included in the aircraft folder for a smooth update.
- New Navigraph AIRAC dataset that will fix some problems related to SIDs, STARs and approach procedures that sometimes were not found when airports/runways changed in X-Plane. This new dataset also allows for a much faster load of airport information into the FMC. Keep in mind, this also changes the method by which future AIRAC databases will have to be updated for SSG 747-8 Series V1.8. Instructions are included with this update.
- Adjusted smoothness of the autopilot during turns using LNAV
- Adjusted autopilot parameters to address problem of oscillations with glideslope engaged
- Improved frame rates
- Fixed issue when entering certain airports such as KORD caused errors
- Fixed issue of “ghost” runway appearing in SID or STARs
- Improved “direct to” function in the FMC LEGS PAGE.
- Improved FMC handling of waypoints speed and altitude restrictions
- Now a TOGA at 50 feet above the ground should result in entering LNAV for the missed approach
- Improved takeoff abort behavior
- Improved fuel prediction versus real fuel consumption
- New SASL 2.5 plugin
