Pmdg Goes..... Airbus

Recommended Posts

Oh My Gosh !!! Can you imagine to one day get up in the morning, you visit the forum and there's a PMDG message that reads: "PMDG's NEXT DEVELOPTMENT-- THE AIRBUS FAMILIY" My goodness with such a high quality developer, I would not hesitate to pay 3 times more than what we curently pay for any product out there. I applaud the previous two guys who attempted and did a reasonable job with the Airbuses; but I (and everyone out there) would love, to see a high-quality-real-to-life Airbus 340-600...or any in the Airbus family.I like Boeings, like many others; but I must admit, I love Airbuses. I have admired these two aircrafts and there are great Boeings like PMDG, but we need PMDG Airbuses so bad !!!! Hint! Hint !Thanks,John

John, there are no words to describe how much I agree with you including paying 3 times more just to have a PMDG Airbus, that kind of a thread would certainly be great news. I would choose the 320 familiy but hey, the whole bunch is much welcome (Except the 380 which looks like a Zeplin with wings IMHO).The reality is however that we are in for a long wait at best considering the next project is the 737 NGX (which also is great BTW).Everytime there is an Airbus thread here, you will see my post. :( :( Sorry PMDG but you've spoiled us bad... :(

Umm, we did announce quite a while back that we intend to make an A320... There's been no official change in those plans after we make the new NG.

it is old news... but it is still a good one. This must be tricky to implement fly by wire in FS but now Vertical reality simulation have proved it can be done !cheersJulien

We had something akin to FBW as far back as the original NG's CWS mode... The MD-11's LSAS system is pretty similar as well. We definitely know how to do it, that's not an issue.

I hope there's a T7 on the roadmap, it's funny because it's the only plane missing in the entire 7x lineup while being one of the more popular newer planes hehe.Looking forward to an A320 though, virtual ATC will be buzzing with JBU flights

Hell, I'll buy the whole family, 318-340. I'm dammed impressed with this ng I just bought, the FMC is thorough and a pal of mine who flies these was very impressed with the flight dynamics too; that tendency to float down the runway when flaring to much etc...I love Airbus so really can't wait for that to become reality.

I agree as far as the T7 is concerned it truely is missing from the lineup.Plus I have a 777 manual from an American Airlines captain :( But honestly I think whatever PMDG decides to make I will buy.Richy

Sounds good, PMDG airbus.I hope they do a T7 for FS11 though

Errr.... guys... not wanting to be a spoiler, but from a business point of view; do you think it's logical for PMDG to make the A320 family?Most of you will be (or should be B) ) aware of the Airsimmer project, which by the looks of the screenshots and all the postings on their forum will be right up there with the PMDG / Level-D aircraft. I admit we'll still have to wait and see, but the signs are very promissing... Should be released somewhere this year....Then there's also the AirlinerXP people also building on an A320, although nobody has heard from them in close to a year now, but according to some sources the project still very much alive. For now I put my A320 money on Airsimmer but I will not yet bury the AXP-hope I still have....So with at least 1 and hopefully 2 very-high-end A320 simulations; would it be wise for PMDG to start creating a third one?Personnally I would rather see they invest their time in a good Airbus widebody or better yet; a 777. :( B) :( :( Just my 2c.Regards,Frank

I totally agree with you. As far as I am concerned, I would rather see a 777 (like you said) instead of an Airbus plane since AirSimmer will be making A320,A330 and A340 and NextLevelSimulations are making the A380. Some planes that are made previously for FS(like the B737-300,-400,-500, 777) are of poor quality

Agree. Although the final decision is totally up to PMDG which aircraft they are going to develop, but a poll would clearly show what the (potential) customer base would like to see coming.Rob

Like I said before its a T7 for me but anything wide body would be amazing.I don't think i can keep flying with the posky or wilco models any longer.Richy

Sweet, PMDG Should produce A380. There the only team that creates splendorous aircraft ever known.-Vincent

I think a T7 would be the best next too.Yesterday, I got a chance to fly a United A320 for 3 hours, and a B772 for about an hour and a half, and still liked the 777 way better, and of course, was much better flying it then the scarebus because of my PMDG 744 time. The sim instructor was very impressed!+1 For the T7

I must admit that I think the Airbus offers some advantages. Which ever one PMDG does first, it will take far less time for them to do the second and subsequent ones. Paul Smith.

Like most people, I'm also anxiously awaiting the FSX versions of the 737 and 320. I look at it this way....if I survived waiting for season 7 of "24", I can wait a bit longer for these new aircraft.Ron

Although I voted 777.. It is more about accurate replication of real world operations to me than what the aircraft is. I am more interested in fidelity, and accurate modelling of the real dynamics, avionics and so forth. As a consquence visual asthetics are very low on my priority list, and I was happy flying sims without even an outside model and a tiny window showing dots and dashes for the outside world, but with an accurately replicated avionics system.The MD-11 meets my requirements easily, the 747X does too (although I would love to see that range expanded to include the LCF etc), having seen PS1.3a I was already ahead with the 747 and it was fantastic to have a visual model as well as the avionics behind it, the MD-11 is the same but takes this one step further. The PMDG 737 is not an aircraft I own, and I am waiting for the NGX as I have plenty to chew on with the MD-11. I will buy whatever PMDG come out with next, because I know it is ACCURATE. whether it be Airbus A320, T7, or whatever. My one other requirement, is that I prefer to fly more modern aircraft with FMCs and glass cockpits, and I'm less interested in the details of older aircraft requiring flight engineers, but that is just me and my personal slant. So I'm just looking forward to seeing what they come out with next and whatever that may be I will be looking to purchase it.In short, it's not what it is, how good it looks, it's how accurate, realistic and well it's done that's important to me.Cheers guysCraig

Me too, Craig.I don't have anything against modelling an older airliner, although I do prefer aircraft that are in service today. Plus, the workload for us is already enough as one pilot flying a two-crew glass cockpit airliner, let alone a three-crew airliner with an FE station!The PMDG visual models are great. Plus it's inside and also the VC that count for me. I don't do much flying from the VC, but you can get some awesome screenshots from it. The 744's VC is absolutely great.
