First Ever PMDG?

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow Simmers; 

Do any of you know what was the first ever PMDG aircraft released for a flight sim? I cant really find any useful information on the web. 

Many Thanks,

AFAICR, the first aircraft was the B1900D or one of the variants for FS9. But I stand to be corrected.

Wasn't it the 757 on the Fly! platform, some time in the mid '90's? - I recall buying it, but suspect it was first followed by a 777 - how would have thought!

I'd say it was the 737NG for FS2002, at least that's the first one I tried and remember. The B1900 came definitely after the first 737NG.

 

I believe before that they used to do the documentation for other planes right, maybe the PSX? Hence the nace "Precision Manuals..."

 

PS: On not finding "history" information on their web I already wrote a thread

Thats great! Yes, I have seen the wiki page, but dont always believe everything they say. I wonder if someone has any pictures of the first product made by PMDG. That would be great to see.

Well I have the boxed 737-600/700, their first product, and could upload some pictures! Also got the -800/900 which was sold separetely but also introduced improvements to the -600/700, so it was really a big Service Pack.

 

It wasn't too long ago anyway! I must have bought it 12 years ago or so.

Didn't they, or some predecessor company, create a 767 wayyy back for either FS98 or FS2000? 

 

EDIT: I found the 767, and a 757 and 777 which were made for Fly! in 2000. I found reviews for the 767 (http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?1281) and 777 (http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/content.php?1284) over at flightsim.com. It's amazing to see how far sims have come in 16 years.

I got their disked version of the 737-600/700, but was not sure if I had bought the B1900D before that, in between buying their 800/900.

 

Jim's done the corrective work.


 

 


create a 767

There was one made by PIC.

I think the first one was the 757 for Fly!, back around 2000.

 

Here's a screenshot of PMDG 777 for Fly!2k:

So interesting, didn't even know about that flight simulator (that's because of being born in 91 I guess :)

 

Any more information on that? I can't find anything on google, typing "pmdg 777 fly!" just returns the present 777...

So, it wasn't a 777 c 2001 but a 767 with 777 panels, after all.

No it was a 777, the 767 was a separate product. There's just no pic available of it

That makes more sense than the previous link.

Only PMDG product that I ever owned. B767 for Fly! Long time ago.

I had their products for Fly! They were way ahead of their time. Customer service was great even back then. I've purchased pretty much all if not every one of their products since day one and been happy with them all.

I still have a copy of PMDG's very first product - the operating manual for the Aerowinx PS-1!

Hang on. I'm getting a tad confused here. The OP's question was of the First PMDG product. and most answers here have alluded to the T7. So if you have a manual for the Aerowinx PS-1, which you state is the 'very first product', is that the same as the T7 or is it a different aircraft?

Aerowinx is a 747 simulator, their first "product" was a manual for that. Not an aircraft

Which is where they got their name from

Interesting. I always thought the 1900D was the first. At least it was the first product that I ever purchased from them. Parts of me wish they would release it for P3D. The 1900D was the first "complex" commercial aircraft I cut my teeth on in FS9. My first flight was from Denver to North Platte, NE. Good times.
