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The 767 and 757 are outdated and need a refreshing reboot in FSX and I think PMDG with their understanding of Boeings would be the right company to produce this.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

Some extremely good ones on X Plane. ;)

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.

That´s definetly not right. The 767 is still in production and flown by so many airlines and when a airline gets its 767s out of fleet there is another airline like Condor going on using it. The same for the 757 excepted she´s not in production anymore.

I get excited everytime i see a 75/76 post pop up. I hang on to the hope that as I type there are more 757 in operation than 747's (if wikipedia is to believed) and that maybe some one will wake up one morning and please all of us that pray for one every night...

​I get that it probably wont ever happen, I have the flight factor one, but its currently in the wrong sim for my liking, and while I do enjoy the 11 beta, all my addon's for mapping, weather, PLOGS and co-pilots are in P3d...

As a 757/767 pilot, I would love if PMDG took that project on. The LevelD is long in the tooth and I have found a few inacuracies (or perhaps just FS limitations for which workarounds hadn't been discovered at the time) with it. But it's still a good option until someone releases a new one. Fingers crossed!

iam with you there. i would love it.

Go on, do a glider! :smile:

 

Do an SZD Jantar Standard 2

 

Seconded, although I think the SZD 50-3 Puchacz would be a better choice (multiplayer and all that lol) :-)

on the MFD, the A380 and 787 are able to overlay airport diagrams among other things, that PMDG won't be able to provide.

 

I bet you they could if they really wanted to. People said they wouldn't be able to do the parallax effect on the NG's HUD, and we know they pulled that off. :-)

With the overlays, I believe the issue was more of data (and cost of it to the end user) than it being technically difficult.  There was a thread a while back where Kyle laid it out, but, as I remember it, the TL;DR version is it requires substantially more backing data than provided by our current AIRAC providers to do *properly*, and that would likely put a very large cost onto the end user (ballpark 4 figures USD per user), which would make it impractical.  Of course there are lower fidelity ways to do it, but that's not really the PMDG way.  

 

And Puchacz?  DG-1000 would be more fun and less of a brick  :Tounge:

The 80's cockpit layout has "true soul". Not like the new glass cockpits with displays getting so big that you just think"... and where did they hide the playstation controller..." in case there is not much to do.

I love Captain Sim a/c`s and for me they work Perfect even with bugs. If they even could fix and upgrade their a/c`s would be the best out there.

Well, I still consider the 757 one of the best looking airplane out there, and still one of my favorites, I have a lot of memories on those ATA 757s.

The 757-300 look very skinny and long, just my type of girl :P

I'd buy two 76's/75/s in a heartbeat.
