  1. 1. Build the 777-200/ER?

Ignore 'Lj' ; his display photo is a big enough turnoff.

He gets a thrill out of stuff like this.

Luckily the majority in here are serious flight simmers who like to fly for a realistic virtual airline whether or not based on a reallife airline or just want to reproduce reallife operations because they have been on one of those flights or just because they love to fly reallife flights, just like i do. So we need the 777-200ER for that because it is still used by so much airlines. Like KLM, SIA, UAE, BAW, UAL, CPA, KAL, JAL, AZA, AUA etc. etc. etc. Because flying a KLM 777-200LR from AMS to FRA doesn't feel right.. nor does it to fly a SIA 77L from BCN to NRT. PMDG, we want the 772!!

I voted no, because i am only waiting for the -300ER. This displays my own opinion because i think further projects are going to proceed faster, if PMDG don't need to concentrate on the -200/ER/-300

 

BUT as i said, this is my opinion and i respect yours. If PMDG decides to do the older versions as well, i have no problem with it. Most probably i won't buy them, but there are others who will have fun ;)

 

I would be happy with the -300ER and fortunately i will get it almost initially :)

What? Just because YOU don't want one doesn't mean they shouldn't make one *******.

 

:LMAO: Sorry just wanted to see what's like being a troll :biggrin:

 

Yeah I get what you're saying about moving forward with the other projects, other than the 747 we don't know the other thing they've got that Rob mentioned in the Q&A in Munich ha. I know I'll fly the 300ER more.

Luke-

 

I think you forgot what the initial question was ;)

 

"Do YOU want the 777-200/ER?"

 

Simple as that - I(!) don't need it. So i voted agaimst but i guess my voice won't make a difference (thankfully :Big Grin: )

I voted yes - I'll buy them all.

 

I also believe PMDG when they say that they can manage several projects at once. I don't think additional 777 variants will slow down other projects much at all.

Yeah there are some tiny differences in the Flight Deck, one being the Standby instruments and a no smoking sign. That's about it, some of the really older 772's have different things on the Eicas like EPR but nothing we should worry about or that they should change imo. Model wise, that's up to Jason who I guess would do them, I'm sure he'd do a great job. Although the big thing is modelling the different Engines and matching the performance for them all. I think they should put the RR800, P&W & GE90-94B. I know some Airlines may have different GE90's on the 200 but the 94B should be fine. I agree, it shouldn't slow down anything else but isn't the 777 the top project just like the NGX was? Meaning so many different people are working on it. I'm personally not too excited for the 747, just because the 777 is my favourite and what I've been waiting for so long. Don't get me wrong though I will buy them all as a step back from the 777 will always be nice, but that will be rare :LMAO:

Isn't EPR an PW thing regardless of aircraft type?

Sorry ignore my last post - I'm not sure on that but I've definitely seen EPR, N1 & EGT on the Eicas on a BAW 772 with Trents!

What I was getting at is that any aircraft that has a PW engine will have an EPR gauge regardless of age unless that has changed. I think that an N3 indicator is standard for RR engines.

If my facts are right, PW & RR use EPR as the primary engine indication, GE use N1. Yes RR have N3 for their three spool engines :)

I do want the 200ER, but I want the 200LR much more, it's great to know that the LR comes first:-)

 

I am looking forward to the 747-400 replacement, the 777-300ER. I wonder if PMDG will decide to release the original 777-300s with the Trent 800s? I think the 200-ERs use the Trent 800s, so shouldn't be a drama to attach the Trent 800s to the 300.

I voted "no" because the question was "Do you want...?" It was after I had already voted that I saw the "Build the ..." I don't want those, but I support them being built because a lot of people here love those variants, So my vote should be "yes"

Good to see you Luke going for your ATPL and taking a keen interest.

 

Just wait until you get on the flight deck. Especially a T7!!

I did some landings and take offs on the Cathay 777-300s (Trent 800s). What a spacious, sleek and well designed aircraft. Much better than the 767! Although up front the 767 is nice (not so for passengers on the Qantas version).

The cockpit of the T7 is a pilot's dream. Boeing didn't go too far from its product line but deviated enough to modernize the FD with amazing clarity for pilots.

Luke, Ryan said this in another thread.....GE90-115B will be the first engine modeled. (it's on the 200LR, 300ER and the freighter).

Yeah I know. The GE90 I was talking about there was for the 777-200/ER which only has the 94B and I think the 77B. (Don't quote me on the 77B!)

Yes, I know this post is old, but we need everyone to see this. PMDG needs to model the 200/ER.

 

I mean, United Airlines has them. So, why not? :P

I hope the 200ER is coming, because Austrian Airlines operates 4 Boeing 777-200ER (IGW). When the PMDG 777-200LR is available in the Austrian livery, it's also OK for me. I'm so excited about the 777 from PMDG and i hope it's coming soon, maybe before Christmas!! Also the Boeing 747-400 v2 and the 747-8I is on my List, long hauls can come.

 

Austrian B777-2Z9ER @ JFK, OS088 to Vienna!!
