On-line purchase VS local store purchase

Recommended Posts

My name is James from Hong Kong. I have flying yours 744 for years. I am going to buy yours 777 for my boys. My question is, does the on-line(download version) included the latest AIRAC cycle data?

Welcome to the forum. Full names - first and last - are required to be placed in your posts here.

 

As far as nav data goes, the data in the aircraft is current as of the day it was released. For the 777, it will be a few years out of date now. Keeping nav data up to date can be done through using Aerosoft or Navigraph's subscription service.

Although the title of this thread isn't really related to the actual post, since you brought it up, I would highly recommend you buying direct from PMDG vs a local store or other publisher. Any updates will always be available first to the developers customers. There is also a risk (Although I would say slight in the case of PMDG) that if a developer broke off relations with a 4th party publisher, support for that publisher may end, with the publishers customers left out of any future updates as a result. This as already happened to at least one prominent Developer and publisher (I won't name any names)  Many like buying from publishers to get a box version. The solution to that is take the downloaded installer and copy to a DVD,  copy your activation code to a piece of paper, place both in a DVD case for safe keeping, Wallah you have the equivalent of a box copy, and still have the benefits of being the developers customer
