I would love to see them do the SAAB and 777 as well.... What would be cool for them to do is break the mold and go for a DC10 or MD11...

Knowing a pilot who at one time flew the Saab 340, it's not really a get in and fly "Express" aircraft, it's pretty complex. Maybe PMDG should go for something more manageable like the Islander.For the next biggy after the 747, which I am really looking forward to, I hope it's not the 777. Why? Because PSS *:-* are making both a new 747 and 777, and I don't know how much inter-continental flying I can take! Plus the 777/747 cockpits are pretty similar, I'd like to "taste" as many different aircraft types/manufactures as possible in flightsim.How about making something that aint Boeing, or even Airbus! Perhaps the RJ100, Fokker 100 or even the Maddog!Paul

OK, I've got a good idea. If you want something that you can hop in and go, simple on the systems and realitivly easy to fly.....Cessna Caravan Series or maybe a Conquest I or II? PC12?? Jetstream 31??

They have match more reality.Ramon
