Hi, 

 

There has been discussion on the new winglet scheme and whether or not it will be implemented on the PMDG NGX. Follow these :

In order to save you the trouble of going through every single reply, I'll copy over the reply one of the developers posted in the discussion :

 

We'll see but it would take a change to the flight model too - the whole point of these things is that they add additional fuel savings over the normal winglets.

It's a definite possibility that PMDG would do this, and maybe even do the 737 MAX, but that would be after they finish their current projects, like the 777-300ER, 747 v2, and the DC-6. We're talking a few years down the road... if they were to decide to pursue this. Your guess is as good as mine.

Yep, the NG got from it's younger Max brother the newer style switches. That's a more recent addition than scimitar winglets, and one that doesn't actually change functionality (much).

Don't know if it can fit in within animation constraints though on the NG.
