I have the unique (and fun!) responsibility of keeping you up to date (or not...<cough>) with the various goings-on in our development cycles as products move from inception to release...

Most of the time, this role is fun because I get to bring you good news- or show you things that we are working with that will excite the simmer in you.

I try to mention now and then that I speak on behalf of the entire PMDG team- not as a prelate of some sort- but as a member of a very solid, very skilled and very cohesive team of developers. Sometimes it is hard to believe that PMDG's first product release was 15 years ago next week- or that some members of the team (Vin and Dr. EV(il)) have been with us for more than a decade. Time just seems to scream by with only a few moments dedicated to looking back at all we have accomplished.

At any rate- around the table at PMDG, we are extremely excited about 2013 because it will encompass a number of firsts for PMDG, and we will be bringing you a range of new products during the coming year that are sure to add hundreds of hours of enjoyment to your simming experience!

None of us are in this line of work for the personal glory, or attention beyond the excitement that you all communicate about our products. We very much enjoy hearing that you like what we produce, but the reality is that we are producing airliner simulations that match our own expectations for what an airliner simulation should be all about... To a person, all of us on the PMDG team wound up on the PMDG team because we had a moment someplace along the way in which we decided, "this can be done better..."

In the corner of my office, I have a shelf that has been slowly collecting various awards and trophies presented to the PMDG team over the years.

A few weeks ago, a new one arrived... The good folks at simFlight thought enough of our PMDG 737NGX to recognize it in their annual awards- and this made me stop and reflect on just how much we have enjoyed delivering the NGX product line to you- and just how much fun it will be to see your reaction to the 777, and also the 747-400 v2.0... (A 744 in the detail level of the NGX? Almost seems too good to be true, doesn't it?!)

Here is an image of the award resting on the conference room table with the NGX:

So- I guess the point of what I am saying is: THANK YOU.

Thank you to each and every participant in this forum, to those who purchase and use our products, those who talk so kindly about our products and our work in this and other forums... Thank you to those who help us improve our products by providing feedback and ideas...

Thanks to the folks at SimFlight- and thank you to all of you. 2011 and 2012 have been very good to all of us - and we are looking forward to a rousing 2013!

So that's the PMDG office(s) :biggrin:

Seriously - thank you all for the hard work! You make a lot of peoples dreams somewhat true, lots are unfortunate and will never take the left, or right seat of an airliner - you guys bring that experience to them, in probably the best way that is possible with the resources available through technology these days.

The future is only looking brighter :rolleyes:...

Thanks to you too, for bringing high quality and detailed addons, making us really able to see as close as it gets to the real thing. Though of course it still only simulation. Keep on going like that, there is no more you need to do, and continue taking your time to release addons you are happy with like always :)

Oh yes! Even thinking of the fact that a 747-8i/f will come after that seems surreal! Haha! THANK YOU PMDG! ^_^
