Who wants an Embraer 120 Package for FSX?

Recommended Posts

I think the Aerosoft Airbus project with its "we-do-not-develope-the-computer-serving-the-coffee-machine" approach is on the right track. Simulating an airbus is not done by lowering fps and develop every single page from the AOM one by one. If they continue with their astonishing models and the promised Advanced version, I am fully satisfied. Plus A318, A319, A330 and A340 of course. That's for the airbus part of your post. An Embraer 120 could be interesting but I cannot put my finger on what they should do after the Dash when their turboprop team is ready for some new stuff. In my eyes, PMDG team didn't disappoint me with their J41 and I know they will find something neat to fly with. However, Dash is not on its way yet, so why would you even think on what comes after that. It's like thinking of what to have for dinner when having breakfast.

EMB-120's probably way too similar to the J41 for us to market effectively...

I agree with Ryan on that. It´s just a regional turboprop in the same class of the J41. But they could choose the E-Jets (170, 175, 190, 195) if they intend to do a Embraer. And if they´re willing to do another turboprop, I´d recommend the ATR 72-600.

Well we do still have plans to do a Dash 8.

I really like the Embraer jets, ERJ's & EJet's, but these have been done, albeit not at PMDG's level. The forthcoming Bombardier CS series of narrow body twins also looks promising, but they're not flying around quite yet. I'd very much like one of these modern glass panelled short to medium range narrow body twins to get in and out of commuter airports with shortish runways. Those avionics, if properly modelled, would be spectular!Just my thoughts & wishes!Fabs

I'm sure my word doesn't mean much, but for years I've been dying for someone to make an advanced E120 (by advanced I mean payware quality). I think that the E120 could market pretty well, since it's a more common aircraft than the JS41. I'm sure I would see a huge rise in Skywest flights on Vatsim (to include myself) lol. I'm all for the Dash 8 too, don't get me wrong.

yep, I feared this would come. I really wanted the Dash 8, actually more then the NGX to be honest

NO ONE SAID THIS!Gosh, that's why the PMDG guys are so selective on what they say, because people just take their words and WARP them, and just to FALSE conclusions.And I am sorry I may have come off rude, but I just wanted to say this, it is really burning my chest.

I'd buy an E120, but I would never buy the J41. The E120 is/was pretty popular. The J41 has almost no realistic routes.

A Brasilia would be nice. It would be great if they did a new beech 1900d for fsx, I miss flying that plane it was the first PMDG plane I ever bought. I am definitely looking forward to the dash 8.

The J41 was flown extensively in the US in the 90s... RSR did it. If you want to limit yourself like that, that's your choice, but I think you're in the minority on refusing to fly anything that's not currently being flown in the real world.

The JS41 just struck me as being remarkably rare

It is rare - infact, there's probably more J31's flying now then there is J41's. But it's an aircraft type RSR and PMDG had experience and contacts with - it only makes sense to work with something you actually know about.

Eeek! I'm guilty on that. I only fly KLM MD11 routes plus some cargo runs :(

Well, you still have a lot of domestic South African routes :)

I bought the J41 on impulse and really wondered if I`d done the right thing. I played with it, struggled with it, put it away a while. Came back to it cos something in my sub concious told me to. You know what? I got to grips with it starting from C&D as I like to do and its really an enjoyable bird. It just feels right and when you land you have that really smug, nice, enjoyable feeling at the end of it, you know you had a good flight. I got the NGX, I have the 747, skipped the MD11 so far. The NGX is really used heavilly but next to this is the J41 and then the LevelD 767. The J41 for me will almost certainly stay as my second favourite plane even though it was an impulse purchase and a sheer dog to get used to. But now see the Dash 8 is on my list for sure too. Steve

That will be a really neat one. I would prefer a Dash 8 over a J41 any day.
I'd rather have a PMDG quality 717-200.
That would be insane.

It's rare in numbers compared to some other types, but it's actually quite in demand as a leased aircraft because of that, since it is a pretty flexible aircraft. BAe oversees the leasing of them, and they rarely have many hangar queens. Al

hey PMDG, After this great 737 NGX, I am now waiting for boeing 777, which is your next project if I am not wrong. I hope it would be available soon.
