Any difference in system modelisation?

Recommended Posts

Hi,I am not familiar with the 737NG/737-800 or 900 series. Are there any difference in the modelisation of the systems between these two products (For example any new features on the 738/739 product which you don't see on the 736/737 product?).Thanks,Francois

Yes there are a lot of modifications of the systems between the 600/700 and the 800/900. Especially on the FMC. I think there's supposed to be a page or document on the PMDG web site telling you about all the features. ALso there's a thread started by Rob Randazzo about it.Hope you find what you're looking for,
