Level-D simulator manufacturers have been sued for trying to build Gulfstream devices.

That's not correct. There are dozens of Level-D sims of various Gulfstream aircraft. How do you think Gulfstream pilots train?

Flight Safety in particular has multiple Level-D Gulfstream sims at their facilities in Wilmington, DE and Savannah, GA (located right next to the GAC factory).

CAE, a competitor to Flight Safety also have Gulfstream Level-D sims at several locations.

Those simlulators are obviously developed with the active cooperation of Gulfstream.

I don't think Gulfstream has ever actually sued any consumer flight sim developer, but the company may well have issued a cease and desist letter or two. They consider any unauthorized use of their name to be trademark infringement.

My bet goes to either:

757/767/787

or

Porting the current fleet to XPlane-11

A decent Jetstream 31/41 would be most welcome....

They have a 41 for FSX so I think it would be easier for PMDG to get it to P3DV4. I would love the 41 to do some Eastern Airways flights.

I can only dream of a PMDG level 757 or 767. In my opinion these are under represented aircraft in modern times. The 757 is just as ubiquitous now as the 727 is was meant to replace.

Personally I want the 777-200/ER with the 3 engine options. One of the most popular aircraft in the skies today

I could be wrong but im sure I remember Robert saying the 787 is a no go as Qualitywings are doing one and it should be PMDG level, but even if I'm wrong on that. If the Qualitywings one comes true which hopefully it will soon, I don't think it would be worth PMDG doing one. As much as I love PMDG, if I already had the Qualitywings one and it was up to scratch I wouldn't buy it again.

I'd love to see them do the 75/76. I use to love the Level-D one until I got spoilt with PMDG products and the current Qualitywings 75 leaves a bit to be desired but the main aircraft I want to see is the T7-200ER and now Norwegian are flying the 737max across the pond I'd like to see the NGX updated.

Although my wants are irrelevant as whatever they do I will probably buy it and have hours of fun flying her.

Would love if they would do the Bombardier C Series or Airbus A350.

I agree whole heartedly. Especially where it is not going to be brought to the 64-bit platform and it continues to be a major part of commercial air service.

This is good conversation but PMDG will do what is best for their company.

PMDG have a great relationship with Boeing so I could be wrong but I doubt they would do a non boeing acft

So what would stop them from having a relationship with other aircraft companies? Airbus has already said they are willing to license their aircraft to sim developers. The C Series and A350 are new acfts with beautiful electronics.

I did say that I could be wrong. If you look at their portfolio they have created only Boeing bar the JS41/BD1900 - The DC6/MD11 could be classed as Boeing. The problem with the A350 and CS are that they are new and data may not be available to them. I think that would stay loyal to Boeing *again I could be wrong*. 

Also I don't think that Boeing would be to happy with PMDG getting to close to their competitors :cool:

After watching the Air Baltic videos on YouTube I have fallen in love with the C Series and so I believe have RW pilots.

Yes both acft are in RW service along with the MAX but are newer that other acft so data may not be available.

Well maybe sometime in the future. As I am getting up there in age I hope I will still be around.

I worked for one of the companies you mentioned and was present during the litigation process.

I would love to see the JS4100 brought back then the dc 6. PMDG really needs a smaller turboprop in their modern lineup. LOVED the JS4100.

The 757 is hands down the sexiest plane out there. Tight body, long legs, big engines......what's not to love?

PMDG's next project is the Focke Wulf Fw200 Condor. I thought everybody knew that. :cool:

Again - if you read my post earlier which are my own opinions - PMDG has a long term goal of opening a sim centre. If we look at the most popular commercial aircraft on the market that have been built by Boeing - then look at what PMDG has done with their desktop simulators - 737NG / 744 / 777 - one could guess that the next aircraft to roll off the PMDG assembly line may be another Boeing!

That said though - perhaps Kyle said it best when he said -- "I can't wait for you guys to see what we are working on next".

As a ramper here in Phoenix, I have noticed the older the plane the more of a pain it is to work. Now for someone like me who compares real life to sim. I will only flynthem planes that are really easy and fun to work on the ramp. Example the 777 and the 737. I've worked the Airbus series up to a 330 and have worked 76s, 744s, and 76s and to this day I have been laying back on saying this but I think it's time with this post. The one thing I will truly love to see pmdg make is a very very good 73 something way better than the NGX. A better feel to it, newer coding, new features, just practically start from scratch, go out and FLY the real thing, ramp the real thing, get every little spec from the majority of the airlines that have them. And make the plane blow the NGX away. I would pay for something like that. Then again pmdg could probably make something highly more realistic than gsx  strictly for their planes too. That's another idea.
