Dreamfleet 737-200 still in the works?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Dreamfleet is still planning to release a 737 for FS9? There is no info link to it on their website. I was a big fan of their 737 for FS2K2 and was looking forward to their new version. I know that the PMDG 737 is supposed to be good, but paying $40 + $30 for the two models (to get full functionality)seems a bit steep. Questions on the Dreamfleet forum about the upcoming 737 have gone unanswered for weeks. Sounds like they changed their mind after PMDG. That would be a shame.

Suppossedly the 732 will be released under the Iron Knuckles label of Flight 1. Then I am not sure but I think the 733, 734, and (735?) will be released by Dreamfleet following . Like I said I am just going by what I thought I read. Hopefully somone with the real info will show and set the record straight.On another note the PMDG NG will is a different 737 that the classics. The PMDG models are worth every cent. I am a cheap person so I agree it is a steap price but I found it to be worthwhile. Anyway just thought I would mention that.Good luckAndrew

Yes! It is on their website. No screens yet, as I think it is still in the early stages of development.

Thanks for the info. I have to admit that I prefer the classics where there is a little more hand flying with more gauges and less glass cockpit feel, (However I did buy the Flight1 ATR72-500 for a change of pace, after it got such glowing reviews.) I admit that I was a little tempted by the PMDG 737, but mostly for the preflight prep, especially with FS2Crew. I find the cruise pretty boring when the FMC flies the route while all I do is monitor gauges. There isn't even anything interesting to look at out the window at the usual cruise altitudes. But I think it is kind of a dirty trick to have to buy 2 aircraft in order to get full functionality. They either should have upgraded the first model with a free patch or enabled you to buy the second model without having to have purchased the first one, especially when it cost almost as much as the original model. That, plus the more classic feel of the 737-200 has made me hope that Dreamfleet has not given up on this project.

The Tinmouse 737 is a real heartbreaker, especially with Erick Cantu's new 737-200 model.
