B 787

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I was wondering if PMDG would release a B787 simulation like 737ngx, b747, b777, etc.. in the future? I know they are busy with the B777 right now, but anyone knows if that's a "acheavable" project?

Thanks in advance..

Most information on the 787 is speculative. There are very few units delivered and very few hours on the fleet. Conversely, the 737 NG and the 777 have lots of flight hours and lots of pilots with thousands of hours racked up in each bird. The result is the PMDG can use input from real world pilots to design a simulation that flys like the real bird, quirks and all. An example is that without such a pool of experience, PMDG would not have been able to simulate how a 737-700 is harder to slow down than a 737-800. Little quirks make all the differnece in a quality simulation.

in the future?

 

In the future is the key. They can, eventually.

 

Question is, if it is feasible in 2014, 16? 2020? Only PMDG knows, if even that.

787 has still got to grow on me massively.

Oh god,,

 

Ask in 2 years, but the 787 will most probably be made from PMDG

Will be a good one from Qualitywings before to long. Won't be PMDG standards systems wise but will be excellent none the less.

Wouldn't count on that, I saw on their facebook they said something along the lines of it won't be out till later next year or so. If it's a dummy version like the 757 then no way I'll get it. Shame their 757 is the way it is or I'd fly it!

They specifically said it will be on par with or surpass the systems on the BAE which is a fantastic addon. So yes not only am I counting on it I'm most definitley positive it will be a fantastic addon.

If anyone could do the B787 properly, it would be PMDG. But there probably isn't enough data available on the aircraft yet and what is known, I doubt Boeing would share with anyone - especially a flight simulation company. At least not for a fair length of time. Just guessing.

I would buy it and use it first before making comments like that. Don't rely on someone's crappy YouTube video to make a decision on a purchase.

Don't just assume that I haven't even tried it. I own it thanks!

737.. 747 and the 777, only birds I need to fly every distance route :)

Also the fact pmdg use real life pilots who are type rated on an aircraft with lots of experaince to help in development, finding a 787 pilot to help in development would be a project in itself

At the moment I will be happy enough simply to be able to fly it RL as a passenger...

I meant that in a good way, Luke. I saw your My Simulator and it wasn't listed.

Yea the BAE 146 is fantastic, one of the best things I have seen,

 

System are detailed also [crz winds isa etc]

Ok, I know that asking for a B787 it's too much already.. I was just curious if any company was thinking in doing one.

I believe PMDG will be the one doing it later and will probably be the best one (knowing how good the previous products are). Anyway,

 

A bit "off-topic": I don't want to deviate the subject of this topic but till today I haven't find any A330/A340 good enough that was worth to buy it.. The most "decent" ones I know are from wilco and CLS. Is there any other company working on them?

 

Thanks a lot for your opinions.

Every time I see a 787 video or a pic makes me like it even more. It would be great for PMDG to make it one day.

Agreed, Diego!

Since they have a partnership with Boeing... the info problem becomes irrelevant. It most likely will appear, sometime.

 

Just not close enough to justify not getting the QW787 though.

AeroSim have released one already - looks very nice, flies nicely and has a reasonable-looking VC, but none of the sophisticated programming that PMDG have in their aircraft. It is a little on the expensive side, but until there is a B787 as good as the PMDG products, it will do for me!

 

I did a non-stop flight from Sydney Australia to Dallas USA today and had 39% fuel left, so it would easily have made it non-stop to NYC. It uses FSX flight plans for navigation, and can auto-land (I have not tried it yet).

 

Have a look at www.aerosim.co.jp for download information.

 

Here is a pic of my Jetstar livery.

Guys-

i dont think some of you get it. pmdg will do a 787........IF there is a market for one. its a s simple as that.

 

Second it doesnt matter if QW is doing one. no more than it matter that ' ifly ' was doing a NG. Chances are slim they will be able to produce a product that the market really wants- in terms of the expectation of high fidelity system modeling. That goes with any developer......

 

The NGX has revolutionized this small community, and set the standard very high.

I've always wondered, if there's not enough info to make a 787, how can PMDG make a 747-8i/F?

 

They get all their information from Boeing. I think what you said used to be the case. I'm sure now it's not!
