I've heard the NG cockpit is very cramped. Also they say it's pretty loud compared to other airliners. I wonder how true those statements are? It does seem loud in videos. Doesn't look all that cramped considering it's not a large plane like a 747 or 777.

One of my goals with this aircraft was to become relatively familiar with how RW 737's operate. Its very cool clicking on that 360 cockpit view and having a concept of why most every switch and light is in the position it is, and what it does. Very satisfying knowing that playing this game with this aircraft is so close to reality.

For example, it appears the APU is running, but why is the aft fuel pump on to feed it... isn't it supposed to be the left forward fuel pump - (as [i think] learned from PMDG this is because the FWD pump is easier to replace if it goes bad).

Seems that either the left aft pump is used for the APU, or if there is fuel in the center tank, then it is used.
