There is a very nice MD-80 and DC-9 from Coolsky... Maybe the developer will upgrade ti for Prepar3d....

But we don’t need a nice MD-80 only. We need a full system simulated one.

The nice from Coolsky + the systems from Leonardo.

PMDG MD-80 series with expansion for MD-87.

The best narrow body aircraft ever produced.

I'm in love for the 727-200 after videos like these.... I have the CaptainSim 737-200 and the 727-200, but without PMDG's complexity it has no fun...

I would vote for 787 and 747-8!

They're already working on the 747-8, that much we know.

A 787 would be amazing!
For some reason, I don't have the greatest faith in QualityWings...

Everyone who says a 787 next after the 748 is completely overlooking the QualityWings 787. It looks really nice and PMDG has no reason to make it for the next decade. I hope they go with something different than mid-long haul/size airliners. I know people really want the 75/76 (hell the QW757 is the most popular plane in FSPilotShop.) Lets see something different. A C-17 hopefully...

Not actually Zludwick92.  Most if not all of the simmers here have been following their "progress" for the last several years.  I am very hopeful it is an awesome product, and based on what I've seen in the short videos I have no reason to expect otherwise.

However, two of the biggest issues with them are that they do FS development "part time"...a fact we've been constantly reminded of every time they post a delay in the project, and second, they are releasing it for only FSX first, with a P3d V4 version to be released.....care to take a guess? I hold out no hope it'll be with in the next few years (unless its just a straight port with no additional V4 features) based on their current record of developing "part-time".  

And remember, when they finally release it for FSX, they won't be immediately moving on to code for the P3d version, oh no.  They will take a very well deserved vacation away from the crazy community that we are. :biggrin:.  Additionally, I can bet you the next 6 months after the FSX release will be spent solely on SPs, and tending to the post-release customer service portion of a software development company's duties.  With such a small, part-time band of employees trying to juggle that all at the same time, well we can clearly see the outcome based on the updates to their existing products, and progress on the 737 project.  Please don't take that the wrong way, I fully appreciate their commitment to making products for our community (and have both 757 and Avro/146).  I'm just pointing out the reality of expecting the V4 version I'd be waiting for is many months, if not years in the future.

Since PMDG realizes all these factors, I would speculate that they've at least considered the 787, despite the fact there may be another one on the market soon.  And I can only imagine that their focus going forward with any new project will be centered on P3d V4 code, and only begrudgingly making it backwards compatible with the obsolete platforms V4 evolved from to cater to the customer base still stuck there. :rolleyes:

We don´t know, but I´m sure, they already started a new product and believe me, 99,999999999%=no 787

By the way I would love to see a PMDG 707 above all other aircraft.  Second would be a 727 and third would be a new MD-11 or 787...  

As for everybody who is whining for Split schimtar winglets on their 737....   Who cares?

I agree. I would love a PMDG quality 707-331B! History was made with this aircraft.

I've got to say, a PMDG 747-200 would just make my virtual hangar perfect. Not going to happen, but nice thought. They could give their AFE from the DC-6 another type rating and get him weaving his magic in a 742.

However, to say that because QW are making the 787 means PMDG have no need to consider it would be very shortsighted. As far as I can see, comparing the two would be like comparing the two most prominent A320 products in the sim world: I'm not saying either one is better than the other, but it is clear to me that they are aimed at different audiences and simmer levels. There are sim developers who cater for the 'lite' simmer, and they do a fantastic job. But that shouldn't eliminate the possibility of a company like PMDG doing a fully blown, minutely detailed sim for those of us who like operating the sim just as one would in the real aircraft.

Anyway, PMDG's next product is clearly Columbidae-related - Kyle's sig says so.

Would love to see the 777-200 and especially -200ER variants. Apart from them, 757 or 767.

I would like to see something fresh and modern. As with P3D v4 I want to look to the present and beyond for development. As much as I respects the classics ex. 757,767,md-80 etc. I think it would be cool to see the 737max or scimitar, new e170 with the present wingtips, or something of that nature. Again just a suggestion and nothing more.

I like your thought process!  A 747 Classic would be my favorite!  Hell, they could use the cockpit dimensions and layout of the 747-200 cockpit sitting in the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum right across the river from their hometown.  Having a detailed FE station would actually make pre-flight and cruise flight great again!  Then again, a 727 would be welcome as well.  RSR stated tonight that the DC-6 development team may have an announcement coming soon!  Hopefully, it is another classic for guys like you and I!

PMDG's next aircraft should be the A380.. end of discussion.. no one else in the sim industry can pull off an A380 except PMDG.. I know they are not as good pals with Airbus as they are with Boeing.. but just saying.. if at all they get access into the airbus inner circles, they can certainly pull this off.. plus, RSR is crazy about 4 engine widebodies, and SO AM I !!

...Next aircraft from this top-notch developer af all time? Sud aviation Caravelle! Simple as that, if anyone can do that its PMDG! (even thogh I know it wont happen, but this is just a wet dream... almost as wet as if they release the Convair 340 Metropolitan!)...

The DC-6 is... beyond words!!! period!

Best regards

A PMDG 757 or 767 makes the most sense for their next commercial airliner.

 

Considering Mr Randazzo basically hates airbus (He once told a story about breaking an Airbus by either him or a guy near him hitting his head inside the cargo space), it's safe to assume airbus is not on the menu.

PMDG's first ever aircraft add on was a 757 for the flight simulator Fly! by TRI way back in the late 90's or early 2000's - I had a copy of that. Their next one was a 777.

But considering that the real world 757 sales have slowed (If not stopped completely), putting it into a kind of MD-11 type market position (unpopular) that leaves the 767 which remains one of the most popular Boeing aircraft of all time, and it is still being produced and purchased around the world. It also has a tanker variant coming out for the Air Force in the US.

A 767 would also have the benefit of being easily redeveloped into a 757 expansion later on once the initial development costs have been paid for.


So my guess is we'll see a 767, with possibly some other vintage or turboprop aircraft in the lineup first.

The production of the 757 ended in 2004, so it is, indeed, stopped completely, but I'm not sure if you can really compare it to the MD-11 in regards to it being unpopular, seeing as there are quite a few airlines that still have it. United, Delta, American, FedEx, UPS, DHL, I think Thomsonfly, Icelandair, and probably a few more I can't think of off the top of my head.

I doubt we'll see the 757 - since a few airliners are replacing their 757's with shiny new 737 max 10

I would love however a shiny new ATR 72-600 from PMDG - something regional - however, I really doubt we will see an ATR from PMDG

MILVIZ are deep in development of an ATR-72-600, no need for two. Not the same level, sure but MILVIZ are talented guys too so quality will be high.

Here is one pilot's take on the 757. A gentleman who is still actively flying both the 757 and 767 for a US airline. (I suspect for American)

From that post:

"The passenger cabin is skinny and uncomfortable, using a fuselage cross-section unchanged from the 707, engineered in the 1950s."

I'm curious if he finds the passenger cabin of the 757 equally as skinny and uncomfortable, using a fuselage cross-section unchanged from the 707, engineered in the 1950s, given that both the 737 and the 757 have the same cross-section.

I have the Coolsky DC-9.  It is a fantastic sim package.  Combine it with the TSS soundpack and the 4k grey cockpit textures and wow!!!  Probably the coolest looking cockpit ever in the vintage jets...
