Boeing 777

Recommended Posts

Folks,I hate to repeat what's been said probably a 1000 times, but can't help it.Just a statement: please PMDG, consider creating a good quality Boeing 777.Regards,Dmitriy.

Hiya,I have to agree. On top of this, I think both versions are aimed at different markets too. FeelThere have already stated it will not be of the same complexity as the PIC products, whilst PSS are aiming at the more experienced simmer. With these products, I think the 777 market could well be covered. NOT that I'm saying PMDG wouldn

I wouldn't doubt the release of the next version of flightsim and what it will mean in the add-on world will play a factor.If these current aircraft are not compatable with the new FS version (whenever that is) there would have to be decisions made.Luckily, the 747 and MD-11 will give simmers plenty to do till then.

Maybe I'm just confused here, but I think I remember PMDG saying they were doing something that wasn't a Boeing, once they were done with the MD-11.

>Maybe I'm just confused here, but I think I remember PMDG>saying they were doing something that wasn't a Boeing, once>they were done with the MD-11.PMDG have hinted very strongly in the past that the next mainline product after the B744 would be a B777.It makes perfect economical sense for PMDG to develop a 777 as due to the complexity of systems on that aircraft, they are arguably the only people who could be relied upon to make a good job of it.In my opinion there would be a huge market for a PMDG quality 777, even more so than the B744.

That could be correct. I might have companies confused, who knows.

I've already stated earlier that I would like nothing more than a PMDG level 777. But it doesn't hurt to do so again. ;) Who knows. Maybe they might hear me... I too think the potential market for the 777 is huge. Perhaps the largest there is. And I don't think the demand is saturated by FeelThere and Phoenix's development of this aircraft either. Because people who want the best know where to get their aircraft from. And that is Precision Manuals. Heck I'd buy a PMDG 777 even if I had just bought it from PSS and FeelThere together. And I don't have a whole lotta money ;)The only downside. Having to wait for so long... But I can live with it. All the best,Victorhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg

I think PMDG's marketing way should be to announce that they are developing such an aircraft that everyone thinks it's the worst aircraft to develop and has the least market, but instead develop the 777 or another aircraft with high demands. This way, the wait wouldn't kill us :)

hehe gotta agree with that. Waiting on the queen was hard enough. I'm thinking here that if and when they announce that a 777 is on the factory floor and is due for delivery many months from now I'll go nuts. Kinda like Angelina Jolie saying: "I'll gladly go to bed with you. Just wait for a couple of years. Can you do that honey?";) victorhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg

They should make a 717. no other add-on manufacturer is making one. So what the heck. It would go great with their fleet. 2 of each aircraft.Beechcraft-1900D and 1900CBoeing-737 and 747McDonnell Douglas- MD-11 and hopefully the 717

IF pmdg is indeed planning to make a 777, of which, to the best of my knowledge, there hasn't been any indication from the team itself, than I am sure they would wait for a complete technical and economoical evaluation of the products from feelthere and PSS. I'd say it would make soms sense if the market for a pmdg 777, despite their enormous expertise, is significantly decreased when 2 other companies have already produced one. But then, I am not an economist.Dirk

Although it would be great to have a 787, you can't expect them to produce an aircraft to the level of complexity and realism we are used to when the actual plane has not even flown. Just my opinion, but thats what I think. All the best,Steve.

Exactly, and that is probably also the reason why that Wilco A380 is a letdown. I am not sure, but I can imagine that add-on was based in large part on speculation.Dirk

>787Excellent idea but defer it to 2008-2009. You need a few actual airplanes flying and a few captains ready for beta testing ... ;)Michael J.

I would LOVE to see a 777 from PMDG. The T7 is probably my all time fav! 777 & 744 are very complimentary to eachother.

I see you registered with the forum only this year so this could well have been before you joined us. On the other hand you could have been around for a long time and not posted anything. Just because you didn't see it doesn't mean it didn't happen. :-sun1

I would def buy a PMDG 777, but I would absolutely love it if they could one day go back and put some of this newer technology sim-build wise into the 737NG. I know, it's been beat to death....still though.

Ok, sorry if I missed those hints. I had the general impression that PMDG is extremely careful with providing hints about future projects. As far as I can remember, they said that the T7 would be a 'possibility' as a future project, which I do not consider exactly a hint. All the same, I do wish as well that the T7 is going to be done by PMDG eventually. I have great confidence in their ability to get the most out of that magnificent aircraft.Dirk
