How about a PMDG 767 and 757

Recommended Posts

The 767 and 757 are outdated and need a refreshing reboot in FSX and I think PMDG with their understanding of Boeings would be the right company to produce this.

 

LevelD and PSS did a great job with the old technology, lets revive these old birds and fly them in to the future.

 

If you would like to try a Brazilian aircraft the EMB-175 would be nice.

 

 

Thanks Randy

I (and many others) also desire a new version of both these aircraft, however PMDG has stated (with no ambiguity whatsoever) time and again over the years that they will not produce these aircraft.

It's certainly okay to ask though.

 

 

Best wishes.

Maybe one day when the B747, B787 and B707 have all been done...

There's already to good models in XP, though the 757 could use a refresh. Also the FJS 722 and 732 are fantastic and his future 707 will surely be even better.

We already have good 757 and 767 add ons with the best systems there. Plus it would be a waste of PMDG's money and time to invest and create the 757 and 767 ground up. These aircraft are 'yesterdays' planes, they are being retired fast. It is always just best to focus on making new aircraft add ons for the future. I hope you understand where all this is coming from.

Tell that to the DC-6.

I'd love to see both as I see these aircraft at my airport everyday, many times per day. The FSX 767 is pretty outdated visually and the 757 I have is very lite in regard to system fidelity.

 

Regardless, PMDG knows their stuff so I'm sure they have a good plan on where they are going. Still, you don't get what you don't ask for...

@flynman33

I second your demand on this.

The 757/767 would really fit nicely in our hangars between the 777 and the upcoming 747-400v3, and the NGX.

 

In the other hand, I would not mind at all to fly a PMDG 787, but I would miss the "classic" feeling of the 757/767.

 

Anyway, one step at a time, first, give us that 744 !!!! :dance:

 

Happy flying

Alex

These aircraft are 'yesterdays' planes, they are being retired fast.

 

That is a rather incorrect generalization:

 

- 757: This aircraft fits in the 'middle of the market' (MoM) 200-250-seat segment. It features narrow body economics combined with wide body performance. Airlines favor the 757 for its good fit on their low density long haul routes, great costs per seat and high thrust-to-weight ratio.

 

It's an unique aircraft and there is no next-gen replacement for it (B739/A321 too small & limited range, B788/A358 too large & expansive), which means airlines are keeping their 757's longer in service. The only replacement coming close to the unique characteristics of the 757 is the announced A321neo LR around 2018, but it does not fit the bill entirely. Boeing is currently considering a new 'clean sheet' design to try and scoop up this 'MoM' segment, but after the costly 787 debacle this is still uncertain. 

 

- 767: The type, the freighter at least, is far from being dead. In fact, they are still being produced, 35 years after launch. On top of that, Boeing as actually announced in 2015 that they will increase the monthly production rate and invest heavily in modernisering the production line, in anticipation of the KC-46 (767-2C) tanker production run and a large existing order back-log of 767-300ERF's for FedEx.

 

Believe it or not, but the 767 together with the 777 are the main money makers for Boeing Commercial aircraft. Both programs have earned back their R&D costs a long time ago and aircraft are now sold with good profit. Furthermore, the 767 is still being improved in terms of performance upgrades and engine fuel burn tweaks. 

 

-----

 

Sure, both types are being withdrawn from passenger service at a fast pace, but that also applies to the 747. What is even more striking is that the future of the 747 looks worse than the future of the 757 & 767. Boeing is seriously struggling to keep the 747 line open long enough to build the 2 or 3 new Air Force One frames and has reduced the monthly rate to an absolute minimum without making a loss on overhead & logistics.

Gents,

 

Just to put it out there before people get too heated: we already know what we're doing next before we finish a project.

Does this applies to X-Plane aircraft too? :wub:

It would be wonderful to fly a 767/757 from PMDG at the actual "state of the art".

I love and continuosly fly MD11 and NGX, and I miss the lack of PMDG 767!

757 I can let go but it would be nice to have a 767 compatible with P3D ... without any migration tools / deceiving registry keys. I understand we are moving forward in society, and we will see the demise of the 757/767 in favor of the dreamliner and airbus counterparts. I just feel that the 767 was a very influential plane in aviation, and its influence should be preserved, at least in the flight simming community. If PMDG is investing time and resources to make the DC-6, all the more case to make the 767. I'd be the guy paying double to get it a week earlier than the official release!

 

I am an avid reader and if I share my negative opinions on books, people say "then write your own!" ... certainly I don't have the knowledge and skill to create a 767, but if there are companies out there listening to customers, I feel that it wouldn't be a regretted decision to make one.

 

In whichever direction we head in the flight simmming community, we should all remember that we still have a lot to choose from, and most certainly we should be thankful we are not in a situation where we have nothing at all.

I'd like to have a nice 757 lite with fantastic detailed model and textures both VC and outside with a nice feeling of really being in the air. But not CS! CS can Kiss my ASSSSSSS!
