PMDG EXPRESS B1900D Pre-Release Info/Images!!!

Recommended Posts

Captains-Release of the PMDG EXPRESS B1900D is expected to happen within days, so we thought we'd give you another round of detailed screen shots of this exciting new airplane offering from PMDG EXPRESS!http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicOneA.jpgStarting on the outside, here are a few more images to show the significant attention to detail that has been given to the external visual model:http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicOneB.jpgMoving to the inside of the aircraft, 2D cockpit panel has been constructed using images taken directory from the B1900D aircraft. In order to duplicate the layout of the B1900D as closely as possible, we have used a combination of default MSFS gauges and custom designed PMDG gauges to incorporate layouts unique to the B1900. For example, the autopilot and many light switches have been custom designed by PMDG to mirror those found in the B1900D cockpit.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicTwo.jpgThe virtual cockpit also uses a combination of default MSFS and PMDG custome guages in order to replicate the look and FEEL of the B1900D cockpit as faithfully as possible!Note the immersive feel of the cockpit layout and eye location within the Virtual Cockpit environment. We are confident that most users will find the VC becomes a favorite view from which to fly the airplane!http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicThree.jpgFor those customers who use Active Camera, we have included a full virtual cabin from which you can watch the world go by at a Commuter Airline pace!(Note: There is no lavatory on this one! So use the facilities before you take off!)http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicFour.jpgThe flight model for the airplane has been designed in PMDG's award winning style, using aircraft performance data from the manufacturers manuals! We are certain you will find the B1900D to be agreeable and pleasant to fly on those short hops between longer 737 runs!http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicFive.jpgAs we've mentioned, the PMDG EXPRESS product line will appeal to those pilots who want an airplane that includes PMDG's reknowned quality, while not requiring 250 pages of reading just to start the engines! So while we have not included the minute level of systems modeling that is included in the PMDG 737, all the major functions of the aircraft supported by the latent Microsoft Flight Simulator systems model are present, including the ability to turn on/off various items and even feather engines in flight if necessary!http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicSix.jpgDuring the past few weeks we have received questions from users of Reality XP's line of products wondering if we will allow for users to customize the airplane in order to use their Reality XP gauges in the cockpit of the PMDG EXPRESS B1900D....In the interest of keeping things customer-friendly, we have done you one better- by working with Reality XP to provide Reality XP users with a downloadable set of panel files that are pre-configured for all possible Reality XP setups.... So if you already own, or decide to buy Reality XP's line of gauges, you can quickly install them to make your B1900D look like this:http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/avsim/PicSeven.jpgSo, in summary, the PMDG EXPRESS B1900D flies as beautifully as it looks, and includes a range of 2D cockpit and virtual cockpit options including a number of custom PMDG additions to fully immerse you in the B1900D cockpit! Moving stairs, cockpit door and cargo door animations round out a truly exciting visual experience!In typical PMDG fashion we are also providing a range of model options for those users who prefer 2D, Virtual Cockpit or Virtual Cockpit and Cabin models to suit their frame rate needs.Additionally we are including at no cost a range of options for Active Camera users, and Reality XP users, just to ensure that the B1900D becomes your favorite airplane when you aren't flying he PMDG 737!The PMDG EXPRESS B1900D is being finalized for release, and will be available within days!We'll see you in the commuter terminal!

Great job on it guys. One question, if I don't have the Reality XP gauges, how is the plane navigated? Sorry to seem daft but is there an FMC or some other type of INS with the plane? Also for those that know, what is the typical range of the 1900 as well as the standard cruising altitude?Sorry guys, but does anyone also have the website for Reality xp?Many thanks.

Thank you so much PMDG for a lovely addition to my hangar! Being a potential first-time buyer from your company, I have a question that may have been answered (but I couldn't find any results): Will the liveries previewed on your website (plus any others to be painted) be included in the package? Will they be free add-ons, or will each livery be a separate purchase? Please do fill me in. Congratulations in advance on a job well done!George

You can create an IFR flight plan with FS, then switch the HSI to GPS, and then use the default MS GPS system to navigate. The autopilot will follow the route, making it the easiest way to navigate.Reality XP can be found at www.reality-xp.com. It is really worth it to add the gauges even if they seem expensive. It's a whole different experience with them.Sincerely,

If we don't add in the Reality Guages, then what? Why buy an addon, what's the advantages over the Ones that come with the Aircraft. Sorry if this seems like a silly question, as I really have no idea what the answer is.

Absolutely amazing, I can't find the right words. That will be on my HD as soon as it's released and my first payware addition in a while. What a beautiful commuter package. Keep up the great work. To bad we didn't have a B1900 sim at the academy, but heck, who needs one anyway when your package becomes available ;-)Cheers,Petehttp://members.aol.com/pzsoulman/myhomepage/logo.gifAthlonXP2000,AbitKX7-333(latest4in1),512MB/2700SDRAM,WinXP,DirectX9.0b,GeforceFX5700(128MB)(Det.53.03),5ChannelPCI sound (latest drivers)

Hi there.This bird looks great!I was wondering what your recommendations would be if one wants to use the Jetline gauges in the B1900D bird, JL2 or JL4? Having looked at the manuals it seems as if the major difference between the two is that JL4 has GPWS and a more "big iron" look. So my question boils down to, does the (real) B1900D have GPWS? All evidence points towards JL2, but I just wanted to check. ;)

Bob,without clear left and right side views of the plane, not much. Cannot find ANY pictures for this airline. Supply me with links and I'll look see what it would take to do.

JetLine 2 would be the appropriate replacement gauges.

I know RealityXP is going to make a few sales as a result of this aircraft. At least one anyway. I figured I would pick up the J2 in preparation of the pending 1900 release. All I can say is Wow! I took the default 350 out for a spin with the new gauges and it was awesome. Now I'm really pumped up to get this new 1900D in the air. Your visuals on this aircraft are just outstanding!Davehttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/prophead.jpg
