PMDG Is SOLID: Southwest Airlines Interview Prep

Recommended Posts

That website features two PMDG panels but PMDG itself is nowhere mentioned there nor is there any hint how these panels factor into the services provided by this company. But perhaps I did miss something.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2

Yeah, and did they even get permission to use these? They're offering a service, so as a business, you'd think they'd need permission. I'm not sure I even see the relevance in posting the PMDG pics. They seem to just cater to people who what to get hired at SWA. :-hmmm

If they bought the software, don't they have a right to take screenshots? Come on now.You know, PMDG isn't mentioned, neither is BOEING.If they want to consult you on how to better your chances of becoming a "poolie" at Southwest, they aren't going to give away their secrets. Though it isn't a secret to us, theres plenty of folks who don't know squat about PMDG.Geeze guys. Who woulda thunk ya'll get upset about a company telling guys who were on the way to fly the real deal to buy FS2004 and sit down with the PMDG software installed and fly it to learn the systems.Anyway, I think it's great, and the whole reason why I posted was because I though it was neat that these guys use the stuff we mess around with as a prep.:DEDIT: Maybe you guys aren't familiar with the fact that Southwest Airlines is one of the best companies all around in aviation in the entire world. They have over 421 aircraft in their flying fleet. Thats more than Continental Mainline.http://av-info.faa.gov/detail.asp?DSGN_COD...AL+AIRLINES+INCSouthwest Airlineshttp://av-info.faa.gov/detail.asp?DSGN_COD...EST+AIRLINES+CO

They use it hence the screenshots. On the other hand they don't want to 'advertise' PMDG or they would look like bunch of amateurs. ;-)Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2

I have no doubt that some companies are using FS and PMDG or some of the other models for initial flight training before getting a new pilot to solo for the first time. I have seen this twice so far and even heard it being recommended by a few instructors. Hopefully they'll be using the B747 as well when it is released.:-lol

Well, from working on 737-800s, I would say the PMDG 737 is very accurate.
