777 Plans?

Recommended Posts

I have all the 737NG modules.They are fantastic. As a real world pilot rated on all Boeings except the 747's, I find the NG simulation THE BEST.I would really like to have an excellent 777 to fly with FS9. PMDG seems to have the skill and expertise to create such a model.PLEASE DO IT!! I'd even be willing to help.L.G. Angevine, retired UAL.http://users.zoominternet.net/~langevine/

I second to THE BEST.And also yesterday tried to find some nice looking models of 777. Nothing. Even the good "old" Meljet doesn't do it justice. Would sure like to have that heavy baby from PMDG! Some nice looking model and systems in the likes of NG :)

I just enjoy the default 777 with the updated flight dynamics file posting here on avsim. At least it has a VC which is all I care about. Im too busy enjoying the flight to care about how good the exterior model looks like most of the time

Like you, Al, I don't much emphasize the outward appearance, but really do enjoy the realism of an FMC and panels that are just like the real world ones.:) Leo Angevine,Captain, UVAretired Capt. UALleo-littlepix.JPG

Leo, I agree with 100%, most of flight simming UAL buddies here in Denver would love to have the B777 also from PDDG.BobKDEN

If it was only possible for PMDG to create this bird, I'd be the first one in line to purchase it.

-"...I don't much emphasize the outward appearance"-Like Leo stated I think outward appearance or no, PMDG would do it up right. BRING IT ON!......Regards,Tom

PMDG does an excellent aircraft. The 777 is the best. Sounds like a plan to me.I know you are working on the 747 but that really is old technology.

Hmmmm ... Yes I agree. You have the greatest single aisle two engine airliner, you are about to have the greatest double aisle four engine airliner, only one real combination left.After the 747-400 and the next Express title, when you then next able, please turn your attention to the 777. Especially the 777-200LR, so I can join you on flyins from Melbourne without stopping. And a 777-200ER with the Rolls Royce engines, yummy.Do you realise that the LR has almost the same gross weight and power the classic 747 had, and flys 9280Nm (17,170km).I will definately get a short one, but I will wait for you guys to have holidays first, not too soon, have to 'master' the NG and I have some way to go.cheers, Nick

Simply one of the most beautiful airliners to grace the skies IMO. I loved the Fly series versions of the 777, if only you were to produce an FS9 version (or FS10 :( ) The VC and cabin would be simply stunning.Ohhhh to dream :-)

Yes, this is my dream as well!! A PMDG 777 in the -200ER/-300ER versions. Good Lord would that be a day to remember when that gets released! Hey PMDG dev team...by the time the 747 gets released...shouldn't you guys have just about enough time to work of the 777 for a Xmas release? Now wouldn't that be grand!!Sounds like Leo would be a good beta test pilot for you as well.

WOW .. finally some other people who share the same feelings as me ...Ever since PMDG stepped into the MSFS limelight I've wanted them to make a 777 ... my favourite bird and I'd take it over the upcoming 747 anytime .. tho both would be so much better ... LOLjust hope PMDG contemplate on making a 777 after the 747 ... Will be a dream come true...GO PMDG!!Cheers,Terence

Forget the 777, I'd rather see PMDG go do an MD-80 series or an Airbus airplane. While of course I would buy a 777 from PMDG, the cockpit systems are too close to the 747-400's which is coming out this summer.. I'd rather see a much different airplane, one that takes a little more time to learn. After flying the 737NG and future 747-400, the 777 would be a joke to fly.. Once again, not that I mind a 777, but I would rather have a fine MadDog or Airbus. Just my 2 cents.-Kev

>Heaves< Kev off the 777 boat...we all laugh at him:-lol and wave goodbye :-wave as we all say, "have fun waiting on the MD80 boat! Hope you can tread water for a long time"...as we sail over the horizon.j/k of course Kev...everyone is entitled to their opinion.

I suddenly feel all alone ;( Your definitely correct on this one Eric, nobody seems to agree with me.. Anyway, I just don't get it... All of Boeings newer airplanes all have the same basic glass screens with the same basic MCP and FMS.. Granted, of course there are differences, but the BASIC's are realitively the same. And I would think more Simmers would enjoy a much different cockpit style and functionality.. I mean, take a look at the 777, 767-400, 747-400, 737NG, 717 etc.. and the cockpits look just about the same..Ah well, you win some and you lose some..-Kev
