I'll have a go at answering... :-)Either: You want a release date - The MD-11 Release date is not yet known. There aren't any problems that we are aware of but then as customers it's not really our concern either.Or: You want to know how hard it is to transition from the Boeings to the MD-11 - well they're different, and yes the panel is the biggest difference, the handling characteristics are obviously "big ol' jet airliner" (to borrow the lyric), much like the 747 but the autoflight and instrumentation is quite different.I'll leave it to Sam to tell us a bit about the main differences between the two, as he knows his stuff on the MD-11.Hope I've understood?

If You want to know how the MD-11 flies I can tell You a little bit about it.1) it is fast and very responsive, sorry to say but it is not "big ol' airliner".e.g. Dubai take-off 40degree C a 747 200 made 500ft/min(no breathing in the cockpit until clear of the skyline from Dubai beach)on T/O while on the MD-last week we had a whopping 3000'min. So be prepared for some Learjet type flying (at least almost!) ;-)2) correct is that the autoflight is different but not too difficult actually I like it a lot..... once you get used to it. There are so many errors a pilot can make until the system comes out logical and I admit I have made all of them. Thats why we had very intensive training during the conversion.3) the MD-11 has a elevator trim system called LSAS (speak elsas) this is a pitch trim system which starts maintaining the present pitch attitude if You are not pushing/pulling the yoke harder than 1 pound (I think)of pressure ..... works nice once You know how it is supposed to work. So to sum it up the 11 is nice once You let it fly and stop overcontrolling it. I had to change some habits coming from the good old 747-200.I hope the information is useful to You and I am as excited as You and waiting for PMDG MD-11Bernhard List
