Jumbo Jet 2.0 for Microsoft Flight Simulator 98

For those who enjoy Microsoft Flight Simulator 98, Data Becker offers an expansion pack that will quite literally expand your horizons. Jumbo Jet 2.0 puts you in the pilot's seat, flying the big rig of airplanes, the 747. In fact, the game provides 66 of the jumbos, each documented by airline, type and engine. There are 15 engines, each with different outputs, from three manufacturers, Pratt & Whitney, General Electric and Rolls Royce.

Data Becker designed the CD to focus on three specific categories, each containing topical add-ons. In the aircraft section, you'll find the 66 models of the 747 with all the meaningful panels and sounds required for the flight simulation. The flight maps category gives you pertinent course maps for North America and Europe, with a few more detailing European airports. Finally, the scenery section centers on surrounding airport environments for Geneva, Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C., and includes more than 100 airports.

The manual's appendices provide varying charts useful to the cyber-pilot. There are a dozen specific check lists, each dealing with the control checks, response and member(s) of the crew responsible ranging from the initial "cockpit check" to the final "leaving aircraft" checkout. The next section of the appendix focuses on fuel loading for the 747. In a concession to the way Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 deals with fuel loading by percentage-based input options, Jumbo Jet 2.0 offers both that information as well as the standard, professional method of fueling according to weight. A dozen or so tables provide the data in increments ranging from 12,000kg to 153,000kg.

Several conversion tables are provided including meters to feet, miles to kilometer/miles, pounds to kilograms, Fahrenheit to Celsius and gallons to English pounds (kg). More reference tables include jumbo jet weight limitations, acceleration loads, maximum structural and landing speed limitations and a large collection of charts showing more than a dozen specific speed parameters for such items as take-off climb rate (V2), flap retraction (VF1), stall (Vs), threshold (VTh), approach (VA) and go-around (VGA) among others.

Other features found in Jumbo Jet 2.0 are photo-realistic instrument clusters and controls, working gauges with sound, landing lights, movies and photos of actual 747s in flight, taxi functions and tech specs for all of the planes, including wingspan, length, maximum take-off ground weights, passenger accommodations, maximum speed, cruising speed and range.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
