Hmmm, I myself am wondering how the MD-11 advanced tutorial is coming...

Chris-You must have missed my update on the Advanced Tutorial.It is coming along- and it will be released when it is ready. There is no ETA.We elected not to hold the v1.20.0055 updates even though we had originally planned them for the same time.So....We do not know- but I assure you that it will be made available the moment it is completed.

Sorry but I'm really curious about the Jetstream. It's almost like the whole project fell off a cliff I don't thing I've seen anything about it for more than a week.I'm really looking forward to the VC shots!-Mike!

ya, after a couple of days since Aerosoft opened there big mouths all the rage seemed to die. I'll buy it, as long as it has STAR/SID capability equal to the other PMDG products and an area where i can put the RXP WX Radar in the VC, since PMDG don't do WX Radars.Mark

Is anybody else wondering the point of 'andy's' comments?Best regards,Greg
Not really. It's just that some people believe that acting like idiots from the safety of the internet causes the length of their penis to increase. Usually they grow out of it once they find that the best women aren't impressed; and that there is no increase in length. :(

Gents-We'll have more information for you at some point in the "near" future. We are cleaning up some details in the VC and external model to get her ready for show-time...We're a bit behind schedule on account of the MD-11 taking more than it's expected share of time...We had anticipated going into BETA with this product in mid-march but it now looks like mid-April... (No, it will not be a pay-to-beta... :( )We're absolutely itching to show her to you- but we're waiting until she's looking good and proper.

Thanks very much for the update Robert,The J41 VC sounds very intriguing,I'm really looking forward to the new PMDG project as a regional prop aircraft sounds fun for short hop's to beautiful places.

When I first heard that PMDG was making a turboprop.I almost fell out of my chair. I simply love to fly them. I'm buying this product the second it comes. :( :( :( B)

I've found that, with a degree of compromise, I can run the LDS B763 in FSX quite smoothly. Nowhere near as good looking as FS9 where I don't have to make any compromises though. However, to get to the point (which I'm sure you all wish I would ;-) ) - I'm thinking that I may take a risk and buy this new JS41.Mmm - just thinking out loud.

I am kind of disappointed at a jetstream. why a jetstream? why not an airplane like the beech 1900 c and d models, to appeal to us freight dawgs as well as pax fans. and an airplane that is still happily flying in service more than the js41

You just need to use your imagination :( - Philip

There are several J41s used for freight, it's often used for mail contracts to outlying areas, so it's certainly not incompatible with freight hauling sim fans.Despite there actually being only a limited number of Jestreams in existence (374 worldwide of all types), that actually makes it one of the most in demand aircraft there is from leasing companies, because of its versatility. Along with some other types such as the RJ/BAe 146 and the ATP, it's often quite sought-after for leasing. Despite 2008 being a year where many airlines had been cutting back and both Airbus and Boeing orders were cancelled, BAe Systems Regional Aircraft - which is a leasing arm of BAe which handles 30 Jetstreams - nevertheless secured a lot of leasing contracts for the Jetstreams it manages, with clients including including Yeti Airlines in Nepal, EasyFly in Columbia and Highland Airways in Scotland, which gives you some idea of the wide variety of places they get to and how much fun you could have with one on tricky approaches.Here's a quote from the current edition of Aviation News this week: 'Such is the flexibility of the Jetstream, that it availability is expected to remain limited for some time.'On another note, I'm personally devastated that we will no longer have access to Andy's incisive, helpful and razor-like sharp assessments of aircraft handling, based on what was clearly a vast amount of knowledge from real-world flying, and I imagine his place in the Guinness Book of Records is assured as the only ever 12-year-old to become an experienced airline pilot, a position made all the more difficult to achieve given the handicap of his vocabulary of just 45 words. His helpful 'firewall it' advice is of tremendous help in operating the PMDG 747 when hot and high, and I'm sure we will all be the poorer for no longer having brilliant technical assessments such as that one, just a mere forum post away.Al

Looking forward to the J41 anyway :( I think it'll make a change to fly a proper turboprop.I don't see how you'll release 2 projects this year though with all the delays, unless it's working up to 2 a year :( I can see the NGX being released late next year though with any luck, if not I reckon we'll have enough on our plates trying to remember how to use all these brilliant simulations. I remember new things but there's only so much room in between my ears so I have to look at the checklists lol.Happy Easter :( John Ellison

Maybe you missed it but PMDG had already done Beech 1900 for FS2004. Why Jetsream 41? How about why not? And in case you missed it too Robert flew this aircraft extensively so he knows it in&out, don't you think it is good enough a reason to do it?

I had forgotten how attractive the Jetstream 41 was until I searched for photos. really looking forward to having a well simulated prop, alot to learn aswell so it presents a nice little learning package for a while. every new project deserves encouragement.john
