I think he just realized by using the search feature that there is already many posts regarding the NGX for FS9 & for FSX :(

This is serious. Flyguy0507 could, right now, be in in someone's trunk. We need to put a search out for him...SeanMerry Christmas all

Sorry guys, for some reason my post didn't make it all the way. Anyway, I was wondering if NGX will work for FS9 as well as FSX. I heard that NGX would be better than the origional PMDG 737s(altough I don't know how) and it would be smart to make it compatible with both. Again, sorry guys, and no, I'm got in the trunk of a car :(

Question has been asked numerous times, and yes we intend to make it both FS9 and FSX. The NGX is a full rebuild of the airplane, it will be better than the old one in every conceivable way, incorporating everything we've learned in the products since then.

All rightt then, thanks for answering my queston, just wondering if the flaps are going to be the same way. That's the only thing that bothers me on the current one right now, the flaps are too big and go down too far.

I've never heard this complaint before, what evidence is there for the model being incorrect?

Don't get me wrong. I love the PMDG 737, it's my favorite payware of all time but I'm just saying, when you look at a picture of the PMDG 737's flaps fully extended then you look at a real 737NG's flaps fully extended, the PMDG's look a little bigger. No biggie and after all it could just be me. Whatever it looks like, I don't care, I will deff. be buying this one.

Just a though, if you look at the real 737NG picture, how are you sure they have flaps 40 out? I may be mistaken but I think flaps 30 is the max used in most cases, so you could be comparing a picture of flaps 30 to the PMDG 737's flaps 40...Again, just an idea that crossed my mind.

Good point, thanks for suggesting that. Whatever it is, I can't wait for NGX

Just for clarification; In real life, flaps at 40 degrees are generally only used for:- Approaching an airfield with a short runway- turbulent weather or strong crosswinds (flaps 40 increases resistance; resulting in a higher engine rpm, which makes the engine better responsive for thrust changes).By default the 737 (PG and NG) is landed with flaps 30.Regards,Frank

I fly the -800 for American and actually they recommend we use flaps 30 or even 15 in a stron gusty crosswind. At higher speeds the controls are more effective and it is easy to over control the plane at 40 because you get more spoiler deflection at that setting.

I agree, no mater what kind of aircraft, in turbulence and/or strong x-wind lower flap setting is almost always recommended.

Ok... didn't know that...I work for a major European airline and one of our 73NG pilots told me that they only use 40deg flaps in turbulent or gusty approaches so they can keep the engines at a higher rpm. This seems consistent with the Fokker 70/100 and BAe145/RJxx aircraft that make approaches in turb/gust circumstances with max flaps and the airbrake in the tail deployed.Maybe these procedures differ between airlines???Regards,Frank

Ask the pilot to clarify, perhaps you misunderstood, it is highly unlikely that an airline would have a different procedure that runs contrary to what Boeing recommends. Using partial flaps in strong/gusty winds is pretty fundamental to all flying, regardless of aircraft type.
