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
In response to Rob in the Pmdg Goes Airbus thread, I agree a poll would be interesting, so here we have it. :( I've left the A380, A350 B748 and B787 out of the poll as gathering all the relevant data to make a full simulation of these jets seems highly unrealistic for these new a/c at this moment in time. Especially for the Boeings..The aircraft I have chosen for the poll, seem sensible as that's what several people have mentioned during the past in this forum but they have never made their way towards a proper poll.Try not to get all excited over which ever aircraft wins the poll, it in no way means the aircraft will be built. This is just out of interest as I'm sure it will be in your interests. :( We already know what's coming next after the 737 NGX, yes it's the PMDG A320, Air Simmers A320 or no Air Simmers A320.So..which aircraft out of the poll do you think needs a good PMDG'ing next/in the future?

None of the above :).My vote goes out to the DC-10 :( Regards

I voted for the Airbus 320. A few weeks ago I started to look for a good Airbus but I couldn't find one... and ended up with the awesome MD-11. :( Still a 320 would be nice. But I don't expect one the coming months (or year) so... I am happy with the MD-11!BTW That airsimmer site won't load...

Hello,I was looking for a B777 add-on before I purchased the PMDG 747-400X a few days ago.I was actually all set to purchase the one from Wilco when I did a little research and compared some screenshots/images and reviews of the 2 products.My decision became pretty easy!I think PMDG is one of a very,very few if any developers who would do the B777 justice.

Personally I'd love to see a properly done regional jet - BA146 perhaps as there seems to be a shortage of really good short haul planes but whatever PMDG make will be brilliant anyway.John E

... and a bunch of other planes as well : CRJ, ERJ, just to name a few.so basically you have 4 choices :- one plane that PMDG already said they would do (A320)- one that PMDG already said they wouldn't do (777 at least in the short term)- two other planes that have attracted less interest so farunless the intent is just to ask PMDG to NOT do the A320 and do the 777 instead, there should be more choices.So no vote for me at this time (and I'll be glad to answer any question if PMDG want to ask their customers).Bruno

NONE OF THE ABOVE.PMDG has already made 2 long-haul widebodies...why make a third with the 777? We already have the ability to drone over the atlantic on mind-numbing 14 hour sorties. I think a short-haul airplane should be next.I vote 717.Regards,Nick

I'd like to see one too in the future. I dont see many people mention these, infact you're the first.I think if a 717 did come to future light, my studies would turn into pure procrastination :(

It would be very nice to see PMDG to ask the customers before developing a new plane!
I agree with that a little but only in a non existent sense that PMDG were a very large team of developers with the ability to split up and do different projects.But when I think of that idea in a critical sense, I come to this conclusion:PMDG is not a huge team. There are simply too many simmers that are unique in thinking, so everybody would want something different.Even if there was one larger group that had the unanimous decision, yes they would be satisfied but the rest would feel very disappointed or a bit hard done by. Also expectations would be too quick and too high after each release.So I can see it as a credible and better solution to just decide as the developer, obviously thinking logically about what the simmers may want/need next.

Very poorly designed poll.None of the above should have been there.

L1011, DC-10, DC-9, A300/310, DC-8, and others.Alex
Nice planes, no doubt, but I prefer to fly aircraft that are in active service and with years of life ahead (that is one of the reasons why I have no intention of purchasing the decadent MD-11). I am waiting for:1.- PMDG 737-NGX (FS9 version)2.- A-320 family if the promised Airsimmer one ever sees the light3.- Any good 777 if ever exists.

We're well aware of the 777 requests guys... I've said this a bunch of times in the past.

I couldn't agree with you more on both counts. You have no idea how many long haul flights I've made. Even medum haul. Also, almost everyone else has some sort of (at least modest quality) add-on to fly their local or favorite airlines. And I have to admit I have the LDS763 to fly Trans-Pac and long-haul flights for Hawaiian. But what about our Inter-island B712 fleet? It seems silly that I live here and can't even fly the routes HAL flies most.Make that another vote for the B712...When PMDG finally clears their plate of course.

I am entirely certain that the fine people behind PMDG Simulations know what the market wants/needs, god knows they are reminded often!That being said, I would like to see PMDG continue to diversify their product line-up - Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, Airbus - with more aircraft from different manufacturers - Embraer, Bombardier, Dornier, BAe Systems, etc. I appreciate the time it takes to fully enjoy the learning of each individual aircraft, especially to the technical depths that PMDG achieve.Whatever that aircraft may be, is truly an academic discussion!

Mmmmmmm! Gimme a Do-328JET or a J-41! Then I could re-live my ACA days in all their glory!Regards,Nick

I'm an Airbus Fan... but I vote for T7.. esspecially -300ER model...Why? because PMDG has already got a lot of experiences developing Boeing aircrafts...I think they can start by using their PMDG-744 as a base product...So, I can expect a shorter release date...If PMDG pick Airbuses planes... I think they will need very long time to be released, because PMDG has to make it from the scratch, not to mention the complexity of FBW system. (refer to MD-11 which has taken 4 years)...Regards,Tri Wasono

I'm a Boeing fan, so I voted for the trip-7 (but that's not the only reason I voted for it; I'd love to see a PMDG B777)... last I heard, they were going to concentrate on some smaller aircraft, in the vein of their 1900 series). I'd really love to see some bizjets, like the Lear 45 or 60 given the PMDG treatment. I like flying the heavies, but taking to the skies in a PMDG-designed "corvette" would be my sim-dream-come-true.

My first choice would be the A320 but as it is being developed (and look promising) by airsimmer. I vote for the T7 as a second choice.But one thing i would like to add to the PMDG team is develop what you want ! As soon as it is done by PMDG standards it will rock !cheersJulien

I voted A320 but yes, I would love a BAE146/RJ too. :(

You ever flown the one by flight1?
Excellent simulation with especially impressive flight modeling. But like all non-PMDG aircraft it has one serious flaw - the autopilot. I don't know if they ever fixed it - I know they were trying hard but were not making much progress at least when I was still playing with it, months after the release. Perhaps PMDG is the only MSFS developer that posses know-how to do their own fully customized autopilot from scratch, everybody else simply adopts Microsoft's default autopilot with its knows flaws. But no way I am advocating that PMDG does another ATR.
