Regional Jets

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if PMDG had any plans or is open to the idea of developing regional jets such as the EMB 170/175 & 190/195? It would be interesting to see what an EMB170/190 would be like if developed by PMDG.

I don't think it's on any development schedule.

 

...plus, if ever it were possible to make an airplane look like a short bus, Embraer succeeded.  The thing looks worse than the A380.

I agree, the EMB 170/190 series is sorely missed in FSX. These would certainly fall into the category of planes you see at your local airport on a daily basis.

I agree too, with Kyle tho. The thing looks awful! (This applies to both the EMB series and the A380)

Well, I'd love to see the E190/195 being developed by PMDG - tremendous and BEAUTIFUL aircraft!

You've crossed the line here, Kyle.  Nothing looks worse than the A380.  ;)

No plans to do any RJs, sorry.

 

Any plans on a Businessjet ? There is no great Businessjet out there and a lot of people waiting for one!

Thanks for the fast response, Ryan! This makes me wonder even more what you guys might do after the big Boeings.

Hmm...pretty much all the popular aircraft are not planned...I am interested in seeing what comes next after the 747 2.0. I am sure someone will tackle the 787 whether PMDG or otherwise (I know one developer is on it already).

 

As for comments on the EMB170/190 being ugly, I find personally that both the A380 and EMB170/190 are ugly IN PHOTOS, but in real life they look just fine to me.

    What about the Eaglesoft Citation X. I have always thought about buying this.

There's the 737 BBJ from PMDG.

Last I heard, PMDG said no to business jets because the market is just too small for it.

Guys, let's not start a debate about the looks of aircraft here. 

 

Whatever they decide to do next it will always raise the bar even further. I mean who saw something like the NGX or the 777 coming?

Well not really - the 737BBJ has more Range etc. there is only the 737-900/800/700/600 but no BBJ1/2/3

Yeah you are right the system simulation is good, but the VC looks not that good...

Honestly, I don't see why not...the question has already been answered, so it's not like we're distracting from fact finding here.

You're havin' a laugh, right?  All it makes me think is "aww, that's cute...it thinks it's mainline..."

(for those of you not up to speed with airline lingo, that's basically saying "aww, it thinks it's a real plane, worthy of a mainline carrier and not a regional carrier")

We yet to get the sp for 777, 777-300 which doesn't even appear to be in beta, sp2 for NGX and the 747 v2.0. And what ever the mystery development is along with the dc6

 

So bit pointless talking about business or regional jets, based on the present time frames things taking(done when it's done remember - but then patched) it's not going to be 2016 till we would ever see even an idea about it and by then anything could have happened with prepare, xplane or in fact some new sim(can only but dream)

 

Of course not quite as bad as waiting for the other most used aircraft - airbus from fslabs

Considering that there were over 1000 EMB170/190 series built, it is a VERY popular aircraft. The JS41 only had about 100 built......

I actually really like the E-jets. They're like a tiny 787.

Although, I'm not sure whether it's THE add on I'd like to see PMDG tackle after they've finished what they are working on now...

That market's probably much smaller than you'd suspect Paul. Developing a bizjet would be just as much work as doing an airliner for us (even more so if you're talking about one of the brand new planes like a G650 or Falcon 9X) and I think we all know which one's going to give us a better return. I wish it wasn't this way, but it is.
