PMDG-Dreamliner

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone..

 

I was just wondering when PMDG will bring out or start on the 787-Dreamliner?

 

If it is already in plan or production, could somebody Link me to some news?

 

Kind Regards

Where did you hear that PMDG was planning on developing the 787?

There's a reason why you haven't heard about it... They haven't made ANY statement regarding the 787.

In any case, Quality Wings seems to be on track for a VERY decent release.

There have been multiple discussions amongst the membership here, though mostly only in the form of "will they," or "they should" types of posts. Nothing has come from an official perspective, though.

Well, if they do I demand that they accurately model the battery failures too  :LMAO:

I hope you realize that another developer is already making the 787 right?

Thanks guys for the replies..

 

I am a big fan of PMDG, and would like to hope they consider this being a part of their collection..

Quality Wings' is going to be fantastic! Most likely much better than their previous work... It should be relatively close to PMDG quality. So, I don't ever see PMDG making a 787 nor do I want them to make one. The QW will be sufficient for me...

It will be "Quality" but not even close to PMDG Quality. They don't target the same customer base as PMDG.

Yeah, I was about the say similar.

 

Plus, PMDG has been doing their own thing (for the most part) for quite some time now. They didn't avoid releasing a 737 because someone else had done it, and they aren't avoiding a 744 because someone else is doing one, too. I imagine even if there are a few 787s out there, if they're not to what the dev team thinks is up to how they'd do it, they might do one too, eventually.

Agreed. The iFly 737NG was successful but for a different user base looking for a different level of detail and a different price point. I think that PMDG should pay no attention to what others are doing because it's never the same.

I absolutely agree..))

 

They shouldn't pay attention to the others.. After all, they are the most precise in detail and simulation Physics that are involved  in engineering these aircraft..

Mehdi,

 

I feel that you have had comprehensive replies to your question, except that PMDG has to make commercial decisions about its likely return on investment. They certainly won't be disclosing their calculations.

 

HTH.

I understand perfectly.

 

Investments will only be made upon surveys with their clients and also the feasibility to be able to gain access to the detail required for the high standards of PMDG. I, myself would be the first to purchase this aircraft if it was made. 

I believe with enough support from our community, we could help them make a decision..

Also, considering PMDG doesn't just target the entertainment market, but also the commercial/professional market for training purposes, I think it'd be safe to say that they will do a 787 since that is Boeing's latest product and it's what the airlines are currently transitioning their pilots to as orders continue to be fulfilled. Just speculation on my part, but only time will tell.

Of course Ian. Boeing's 787 Dreamliner has been developed for a cleaner and much more efficient in fuel saving aircraft for the industry., therefore, like you say, targeting the commercial and professional pilots would be of great use to develop their skills when unable to fly the real thing. And PMDG are the only ones who can simulate a model to those requirements and standards.

Yeah they are great for training. My buddy used the NGX when he was getting typed on the NG. He said it helped a lot, especially for practicing flows. It cuts down on time in the Level-D and saves the airline money.

I don't think it's necessarily fair to make such a statement about an unreleased product, and by a company who has made it quite clear that the systems depth of their past products does not reflect what the 787 will be.

 

Also, note the removal of "Complexity Simplified" from their logo.

It doesn't matter if it's released or not. I'm sure it'll be better than the 757 and 146/Avro, but the bottom line is their customer base is different and they like to make their products for both FS9 and FSX. The only other products out there that are on par with PMDG are FSL and Majestic. QW is only into the entertainment market, not the professional market like the big three I mentioned.
