Recommended Posts

Rob stated FSX


Okay well that's pretty amazing considering how FSX stands vs P3D, what are his specs I wonder.

Excuse me if I'm wrong, in the second picture, I think the lights on the nose gear are lightened? But in my study, the lights on the nose gear will only illuminated when the main gear in the GND mode. Would love to have this feature.


Thank you PMDG for the great work.

I have been with UAL for 31 years now as an aircraft inspector. Out of the entire fleet, I have enjoyed working on the 747.

I have had the pleasure of performing inspections through out the aircraft from the nose to the tail, from wing tip to wing tip,

inside and out. She is a work of art.

Sadly, UAL is slowly phasing out the 747 which is being replaced by the 777 and the 787. I will surely miss them.

Thanks to PMDG, I will soon have one of my own!!

Incredible update. Thank you. Can't wait.


Bought a goflight yoke as a celebration!


The VAS numbers look excellent, well done on those. Without wanting to get ahead of oneself - will you be able to apply any of those improvements to the 777 later?


Thanks again.

Looks just amazing. Thank you.


For us now planning some routes, will the 747-400 come with aux fuel tanks so we can make it into a 747-400er?

Hi,  I wouldn't mind taking bets that the next expense in some simmers will be a rush on LARGER monitors to accommodate the "Queen".    Richard Welsh.

I did my first transatlantic flight from EGLL to KDTW in a British Airways 747, almost 18 years ago (man, I'm getting OLD!).

Ever since then I loved the 747...


At the moment I see the 747 about once a week, and I stil love it!







Can't wait for the PMDG 747!!!!!

Using the sim mostly to reproduce procedures, I'm really interested into the malfunction list that will come with this aircraft. Do you know when we could have it ?
