Possible new aircraft for PMDG to develop

Recommended Posts

Hi everyoneWith the PMDG 747-400F now rolled out and the MD-11 nearing completion, obviously the first question to pop into everyone's minds is, "what will be the next aircraft to come from the PMDG hangar?".So, I'd like to offer this suggestion. Since PMDG has recreated Boeing aircraft so accurately, I'd like to have a Boeing 717-200 to fly around. To my knowledge, no other payware aircraft designer is developing this aircraft and I'm sure it would be quite popular among us virtual Captains.What do you all think of this suggestion? I welcome everyone's comments - for and against.Kind regards,Matthew

I've the pre-order, latest B777, and the way it looks to me, it is not likely going to be right. In other words, the market for a quality long-hall B777 is wide open.>Hi everyone>>With the PMDG 747-400F now rolled out and the MD-11 nearing>completion, obviously the first question to pop into>everyone's minds is, "what will be the next aircraft to come>from the PMDG hangar?".>>So, I'd like to offer this suggestion.

It will help them cut down some work also as you do no need to completely reprogram a totally new set of gauges. The same with the modern BOEINGS. All of them has the same flight deck. I mean the B767-400, B744s and B777s. The only main difference is in the engine displays I guess. Another thing is that PMDG never stated before, well at least I have not seen them state that the MD-11 is nearing completion. So I guess it will be prehaps another year or so until that one is being released judging from their past record in releasing packages. In between they might release some obscure packages like maybe the PMDG Cessna? Something that is not very very complicated and could be done with minimal effort to try to earn some money while they are at it. It was done during their development of the B744.Regards,ALex G

I just had another thought - since Alex is talking props, how about a DHC-6-320 Twin Otter? There are NO payware versions of this aircraft around and I would love to see it made because a local airline uses it here in Australia - Aeropelican. If you want to see what this aircraft looks like, click on (or copy & paste) the link below. What does anyone else think of this idea?Regards,Matthewhttp://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=0729...next_id=0722029

>There is a very good Freeware Twin Otter available with a lot>of working cockpit features from >http://www.premaircraft.com/Well maybe PMDG can do something about the virtual cockpit of that one. I do not run it but i belive that the virtual cockpit is not working but I am not sure though.Regards,Alex G.

I would pre-order with no questions asked and disregarding its price. PMDG 777-200ER :DOnly they have to do it. Nobody else as it seems can recreate this bird right.

Not to bash any other companies but WOW just thinking about a PMDG 777 makes me drool. Could you imagine if we had PMDG 737, LVL-D 75 and 767 and a PMDG 777 to slide in there with the Queen. PMDG and LVL-D can give us everything I would ever need from FS :)-Paul

Third for that ;)Id love to see a decent 777, which i think PMDG would have no problem achieving. Id also pay alot of money for this plane, its a fantastic piece of engineering and technology :)CheersBen

Way to go - it has to be the Triple Seven!-Jay

I fourth that. I just won't disclose how much I'd actually pay for a PMDG quality triple seven because I'm afraid they might hold me up to it! But let's just say that for that particular bird I'd be willing to pay for something close to a hundred bucks. Yep, that's how much I love that airplane.Listen to us Robert. You can become a very rich man!!! (the way you guys have been selling the queen lately leads me to belive that you are already, and deserve to be too ;) )Best Regards,Victor Limahttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg

I'll 32nd the vote for a 777-200ER. But I noticed that no one has mentioned the Airbus A-380 "Dancing Elephant". A friend of mine has the Abacus version, it sucks. Is there a good version of it or is it simply too early for one to be out?

Respect to you guys who have several of these high quality, high end simulations like the PMDG 747, 737 and the level D 767,and use them at the same time. That`s an awfull lot of information and procedures you have to have in your head to fly them well.Flying the 744 for a living is great fun,and a dream come true,but after doing some test flying on the PMDG 744, I like nothing better than to jump in a Realair spitfire,SF260 or scout and go blasting through the valleys low level!.Fantastic flight models and superb smooth instruments for flying IFR!But PMDG are still the best ;-)regardsJon

Just the thought of a PMDG 777-200er/300 makes me drool. Pmdg mops up the competition if there was any.Gideon

Ahh Jon, you assume that we fly them well though. :-)In fact owning the 767 and/or 737 allows you to really see the way in which Boeing flightdeck and avionics design has evolved. It's almost as fascinating as flying them in fact.

But the Feelthere EMB and B737-300/400/500 has something to offer. I personally go more for the EMBs but both are very good. Almost to the PMDG standards although they might lose out in terms of advertisement as not many people have heard of them yet as they do not appear in webbys and magazines that much. Well I still go for the A340s or A330s as I am guessing that the FBW systems are too tough to reproduce accurately in FS2004 for anyone.Regards,Alex G

Hi thereAs much as i agree with the posts about PMDG making a "Better" B777 than is currently availble, I would prefer that they did that at a later date or as a second project, I think a "better" Airbus would be a better option. But if i was able to sway those in the know I think the best thing that PMDG could release next is some form of Business Jet, either the Citation X or a gulfstream 5, There is a rather lacking payware Citation out there, but no Payware G5. The business jet market i feel is somewhat lacking in FS, with either poor freeware or incomplete Payware. Eaglesoft are about the best option at the moment but they lack a decent cockpit and no FMC.I love flying the Heavies, but sometimes be nice to have something that can do the distance but get into the smaller airfields/airports aswell. You only have to search forums on here for people looking for a decent Biz jet to see how much of a demand there is for one.Just my opinion anywayRegardsJames

>X or a gulfstream 5, There is a rather lacking payware>Citation out there, but no Payware G5.You might not be aware of it but Gulfstream as a company has a long standing policy of not sharing any information about their aircraft with folks trying to simulate their aircraft in the sim/gaming industry (they are outright hostile to such idea). So we can dream about other bis-jets but Gulfstream is pretty much out of the picture.Michael J.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/for...argo_hauler.gifhttp://sales.hifisim.com/pub-download/asv6-banner-beta.jpg
