PSS panel use in 737s Question

Recommended Posts

Hello AllI use the very nice PSS panel in my 737 6,7,8,and 900 series aircraft from POSKY i believe that these are the NG series.I do like to do things in a reasonably accurate way when using panels and was wondering in the real world would the 737 300 400s etc the latest models have the same sort of panels as the 7,800s etc if they do then i would add the PSS to my own 3 and 400s.When i was going through the initial learning phase of passenger jet flying i used to use the 737/400 a lot,but now i rarely use it because the panels available are rather poor compared to the PSS and others panels i use.Basically can i use the PSS in the 3 400s and feel comfortable that its reasonably accurate to real world 737 3 400 panels.Alternatively if there are any good freeware 737 panels out there can you recommend one?I have checked myself but there doesn't seem to be anything new in the freeware dept.cheers Andy

Just in case I'm missing something here.AFAIK the only Boeing products PSS makes are the 757/777 series. And those panels are nothing like the 737's.Perhaps you're talking about the PMDG Panels?Which make the 737-600/700 800/900?I only fly payware, So what I did was merged the Wilco 737 panel to the Fifty North models.Could be done with the Posky I assume but, The 737 300-500 series panels are slightly different then the NG series.Cheers
