Possibly in maybe 2020-2025 time range.

Thats soo awesome they are releasing it tomorrow, I thought It'd be ages away. Reckon NGX owners will get a discount? AND AN A350 WOWWWWW.

Honestly, I am 100% against this idea. Quality Wings have a very nice one in the works, and it is sure to be out soon. Meanwhile, there is not a single decent 757/767 available anywhere on any platform! If you were to ask me, the 75/67 is what PMDG should work on. It would be very profitable, as the 757 and 767 are very common aircraft. The 787 is only JUST starting to take the 767s jobs, and airlines are struggling to replace the 757.

I agree with you completely on this, the QW 787 is no light product (like their 757), it looks like it's going to be a full blown 787 sim. Roll it on!! The Level-D 767 is a fantastic bird but it is definitely showing it's age now.

 

As for the quoted part, I do disagree. Take BA for example, they've ditched all their 757s and still operating the 767 strong, and taking in 787s to run the 757/767 routes. Are they ditching the 767s any time soon? Doesn't look like it. As is the same with the major NA airlines (yes they still have the 757s but the 767s are certainly not a target for replacement any time soon). If anything the 787 is eating into the 757s jobs.

I think if you are expecting a PMDG level sim you are going to be disappointed, i would bet more at the level of the Avrojet series, around the range of the Aerosoft Airbus, still a fine add on.

 

...and yes another vote for a PMDG 757, not that it works that way.

Im sure the QW787 will be a great addon. They been working on it a very long time and hope they get rewarded for it in sales.

 

What I wish for PMDG to do is a 757 or 767. Its sadly lacking for a new updated model in our industry. The FF767 is fantastic but its xplane. We just need something for P3D or maybe the upcoming DTGFS

There's a great Level-D 767 for FS9/FSX, a decent FF 757 for X-Plane, and a better FF 767 for that platform.

 

I agree that I'd love someone releasing a high quality early 80`s first generation EFIS aircraft, the 757 is my favorite but IXEG will soon release a 737 Classic on XP10 to fill in this "market". An MD-80 might also be great but we already have Leonardo's Maddog which is very "flyable"

While with some tweeks the Level D is flyable, it is very old as of now. And after being spoiled by PMDG with their newer stuff, I cannot bear to fly anything of less quality! The FF stuff quite frankly looks worse then the Level D in my eyes. Coolsky have an MD 80 that looks amazing as well...

Judging from plans of a map built into the nav display, and the fairly extensive systems I would say it is a balance between the Aerosoft bus and PMDG level. I would say maybe ifly level complexity? In all honesty, while a lot of us can appreciate PMDG level detail, most of us cannot use all of the features in PMDG products...

I too would love a new 767-300ER. With the option to add or remove winglets. It's such a fun plane to fly. It's technically a heavy, but flies like a C172. Very light on the controls, VERY powerful, and can be used for short hops from ATL-MCO or long haul such as ORD-MUC. Probably the most versatile aircraft in my opinion. Not to mention it has the perfect cockpit(some efis, some traditional steam gauges).

 

Call me stupid, but I'd also love a 747 Classic just as much. The complexity of that cockpit is what got me interested in aviation.

A 747 classic would be amazing! Honestly though, I think that is in Captain Sims and Milwiz ball park...

It would also be great to leverage what they learned from the MD-11 and apply it to a 717 which is still going very strong as well.

 

And the 757/767? ... I dream about a PMDG version over my cereal every morning.

I hope there will be a 787 as the glass cockpit is just amazing. Supposedly a true pleasure to fly as well.

From what they've said and shown in their forums, it's going to be a giant leap up from their previous products in terms of system complexity. Sure it probably won't be to the level of the 777/737 but I think it's going to be closer to PMDG than it is to AS A32x. But we shall see!
