737 extended range versions:

Recommended Posts

Does PMDG have any plans of releasing the extended range variants of the 737ng with the hypothesized sp3 release after the T7?  The 737-900er is getting many orders from airlines today and is definitely worth being modeled by pmdg.

Well, personally I want to see PMDG release the 777-200LR first and the the 737NGX-MAX. But I agree your idea is a good one! :)

Just being curious here… what exactly is the sim. pleasure in the long haul flight?

 

You take off, climb, level out and then turn on A/P for the next X hours… I must be stupid as a door nail, but I fail to see the lure.

End up in a country on the other side of the world? I don't know.

A bunch of reasons for different folks.

 

Following real world routes, doing interesting flights, etc etc..it's also better with online ATC especially when it's busy

I enjoy knowing that I took off in Los Angeles and landed down in Santiago or somewhere like that. It's just that it's a great feeling that you completed the flight in real time too. Plus, since I don't have any long haul aircraft, I need the ER 737 versions so I can do those kinds of flights.

Yeah a lot of us just enjoy that feeling, it's not everybody's thing.
