777 Cadet Training Program - Released!

Thanks Jaff - as we speak I'm trying to convince a former Cathay Pacific 747-400 Captain to join us for the PMDG 747 Program, so yes!

 

Would that be the famous Don Grange?

It'd be great if it was! Nope, sadly not. 

 

I'd put money on it being great, regardless.  Excellent quality work.

Absolutely! Fantastic phenomenal work!!! 

 

I just watched the tour of flight deck 1-3... Very nice done, and extremely informative.

Also, I must really give credit to the PMDG team. The thoroughness and depth of the system modelling (this was electric, hydraulic and bleed systems which where shown) is quite amazing, really... I was really amazed and surprised at the details (and so was Myron at some point (won't spoil anything!) )...

 

Thanks again, Ben! Looking forward to the line-flying also.

Thanks Anders, indeed as with the Q400 and Majestic, it takes something like this to see just how deep into it the modelling they go. And the sad thing is, unless you've got someone like Myron to show it to you in a way that makes it interesting and makes it sink in, it's completely wasted. The number of people flying around in the 777 who are totally oblivious to all this taking place around them makes me sad  :wink:

This is why we need you guys to up the production level.   :P  Would be so awesome to have a 737NGX version from you guys.  I know it's been done elsewhere, but not the way you guys do it.  I've said it before on other posts here but I'll say it again, IMO, you guys make the BEST learning videos out there!  The way you put it together and present it, just perfect for the way I like to learn!!!!

 

I also believe you said you're going to do FSLabs A320 too, right? Hoping so...  :wub:

Hey Kevin, what a wonderful thing to say, thank you  :smile:

 

FSLabs A320 is already in kind of pre-production. I've got the FCOM wedged against my chair to prove it. 737 NGX I really want to do, but we really need to sit tight for a bit and see what the schedule is for PMDG to deliver on the NGX V3. These things take a long time to make but we're trying to up the pace this year and next. My promise is, at least 3 Programs from us this year....

Wow... 3 program THIS year?! Excellent! 

I'm really looking forward to that. 

(I'm going to watch the Q400 course after I finish the 777 ... :) )

Yup, 777 Cadet+, 717 and one more, probably A320.

Hi,

 

Just wondering if I buy can I choose downloads of different quality to save on huge downloads and time?

 

I don't want to stream them. I'd like to download and keep them.

 

25 or so videos at 25G (I read that somewhere) scares me.

 

Thanks.

Hello, yes you can choose the download quality:

                                            Download.png

 

Mobile - 480p

SD - 720p

HD 1080p

 

Biggest file in the Q400 Program was 3.7GB. The 777 is about the same. 

 

Hope that helps,

 

Ben

Yeh, it's a lovely little aircraft and they've got big plans for it in terms of bringing it up to 'study sim' level. It'll be a LITE program, so shorter than say the 777 but will be taught by a RW 717 pilot and you'll get to know most of the important bits.

Really interesting... looking forward to it. Very exciting about this. Not at least the Airbus course and of course the continuation of the 777 course and the 777 Cadet+

 

I was wondering, regarding your 777 course - are you only flying the -200LR version of the 777 or will you (at some point in the course) also feature the -300ER?

Somehow I doubt this, since you've chosen the -200LR, i'm guessing, it would be the model (or closer to the model) that Capt. Ashcraft flew, or is there another reason?

Good to hear. Myron only ever flew the 200-ER version as United didn't get the 300-ERs until the Continental merger which happened just as he retired. The 200LR is the closest to it of the PMDG birds. Practically there's very little difference, but we do plan to do something on 'differences'. How and what yet I'm still figuring out.

Thanks, Ben for answering. 

It was kinda what I figured...

I bought it yesterday and after watching the first two episodes i already know that my money was well spent here! Absolutely amazing stuff with a wealth of invaluable information and interesting background stories. 

 

Your radio voice combined with Myron's knowledge and experience is a match made in heaven, very pleasant  and joyful to watch/listen to

 

Congrats Ben, way to go! Thats how you do paid video content!

 

Your upcoming FSL A320 series will be an instant buy for me

Ben - I'm in the middle of watching Video #4 (Walkaround) and have to say this is absolutley fantastic!!  Myron is a great instructor and very enjoyable listening to his stories and imparting his knowledge of the 777.  Looking forward to pulling my dusty 777 out of the hangar and flying it with my new-found knowledge once I finish all of the videos.  Nicely done!

Just watched the first 4 episodes. It's absolutely awesome and well worth the money! So informative and entertaining at the same time!

 

I only have one small constructive point of criticism: I would prefer if Myron would do more of the explaining with you asking questions. A lot of the times you (correctly) explain how things work and he just confirms and adds some additional points. Would be even more authentic this way around. Nevertheless it is yet another fantastic program! Looking very much forward to the Airbus Cadet Program.

Ben, a quick question.

Have just purchased the Q400 First Officer training course. Was wondering - does this course, require the Pro Edition of the Majestic Dash 8 Q400 in order to 'follow' the procedures, or can you still learn/get something out of the First Officer Course when 'only' owning the Pilot Edition?

 

Okay, that was a bit cryptic... Hope you know what I mean...

 

(Sorry for de-railing the topic)
