BOEING- Officially Licensed Product

Recommended Posts

Awesome- what a great honor for Boeing to have given PMDG this designation! And, how fortunate are we, to have the ability to fly something so recognized!No doubt, Alteon will soon be using this product as preparation for the fixed based sim- in concert with Microsoft's ESP- and then hold on to your hats captain's- full FMC fidelity and systems upgrades cannot but be on the horizon!I am a happy man Ryan!Best-Carl F.

May I take the absolute silence from PMDG as a (we cannot confirm or deny the possibility) tacit agreement? ;)Best-Carl F.

Dan:They are displaying the "Boeing- Officially Licensed Product" logo on the update installers- I am hoping that this relationship will only enhance their already firmly entwined existance- and PMDG will work even harder towards FULL fidelity with the aeroplane simulation.Boeing is correctly choosy in their licensing requirements, and while PMDG is albeit already the platform replication leader- it is my hope that this relationship will fan PMDG's fervor for faithfulness. Robert's recent type rating was the first gleam of hope. This is the second. Once PMDG releases their ESP product- THOSE customers will clamor for further fidelity- and THEIR pockets are deep enough to demand attention. It is my hope that once this occurs, PMDG will be charitable enough to port the changes to their "entertainment" product as well. If this release is any indicator- they will! BTW- please don't misconstrue this to mean I am hoping for another free update- rather, I (and others) would gladly pay for whatever they would port from that ESP release into the "entertainment" version.I am firmly committed to the 747 platform- currently with FS9, perhaps soon with FSX (waiting on those MCP drivers Lefteris) and it is my hope that there will be a 747-8 update in the future!Best-Carl F.

I'll let Robert fill you guys in on the actual details of this when he gets a chance, but yes we've been given Boeing's official seal of approval on the NG, 744 and MD-11 product lines and anything else we may do in the future.Btw, knowing that other company's history and reputation, I wouldn't assume the endorsement they display is legitimate btw...

Despite the segways (read- hijacks) from the original posting, I remain hopefully optimistic about the Boeing OLP designation. PMDG has always been at the very forefront of transport category aircraft simulation, and at the forefront of ethical and honorable business practice- for that I feel they have earned their recognition.I look forward to the next few years. We have a grand old lady (can you believe she is no longer a debutante?) to fly, and the future looks bright. Robert loves her, at least as much as we do, and she will always be Queen of the fleet for some of us.I leave you with Sir Henry Rolls'- "Do one thing, and do it well!"Best-Carl F.

Hey guys thanx for the heads up on that bogus company Ariane Design! No tech support forum raises alarms. Even their contact email being a crappy @AOL is suspicious.

This post was begun, to celebrate PMDG's achievements, and gently prod for continued development of the 747-400 platform, in what ever form it takes. Nothing more. Certainly not to discuss any other venture or aeroplane.I do hope that we will eventually see more (paid) releases for the 747- weather it be for the -400/400F or the -8. It is my platform of choice.Thanks!Best-Carl F.
