737-800/900 Analog on Digital Layout

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - almost all the screenshots of the 800/900 have the PFD/MFD showing analog controls on the digital screens. I can't be the only one who finds it kind of amusing that we're using digital screens to emulate analog instruments!I know this isn't a PMDG issue per se as much as a systems issue; but can those screens be configured to show the traditional digital attitude indicator with everything on it?Steve

Hi Steve,The reason Boeing provides these 'analog' digital instruments, is to enable 737-400/500 pilots to transit quicker to a 737-NG version.It requires less training, hence it is cheaper for the airliners.

But B737-3/4/500 have the same type of EADI / EHSI presentation as the NG, granted there are some differences but the display on the classics pretty much only lack the speed tape. I think this is meant for the 100/200 series drivers not the EFIS qualified bods! Kris

Hi allThis option is for the non-EFIS a/c crews to transition faster. But as far as non-EFIS a/c I think there are individuals within the whole range of Classics that is non-EFIS. Operator dependent? Anyone? Class? ... ;-)Cheers,
