Next product of PMDG

Recommended Posts

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.

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

That makes no sense. Aircraft manufacturers absolutely need and require Level-D simulators to be produced so that flight crews can be trained to fly the company's aircraft. Most manufacturers are not capable of producing such simulators in-house, and rely on third-party training vendors to create the sims. This is definitely the case with Gulfstream. They do not manufacture Level-D simulators. What would be the point of suing a training vendor?

A desktop CBT is one thing, but creating a full Level-D sim can ONLY be done with the active cooperation and engineering support of the aircraft manufacturer, as many of the flight deck components of the sim have to come from the aircraft maker itself.

If there was an issue, it certainly cannot have been Flight Safety, as they have had a close working relationship with Gulfstream for decades for both pilot and maintenance training.

From a purely aesthetical point of view, 757 in a landing configuration looks like a gigantic bird of prey ready to grab its victim. I mean, just look at it! Isn't it the most awesome sight?

As a private pilot, when I hear about a 757 in my vicinity, I immediately "panic". The wake turbulence they make is in its own category (literally).

The most Awesome sight? not really! Thats just my opinion

I personally dont know how they are going to keep adding new aircraft to their portfolio.  Even when they announce something based on previous experience it will be at least 2 more years away.  The NGX is getting old and could use an update, we still want the 777-200/ER, and the 747-8 is still a long ways away.  If they started working on a new 737 and 777-200, 777-200ER right now it would likely be a few years until we see both of those.  By then it will be time to upgrade the LR and 747 and DC6 LOL.  I could see them adding maybe one more major release and then continuing to update their old releases, or porting some products to xplane.

maybe a silly question:  but what's the differece FOR US SIM PILOTS between the 777-200LR and a -200ER? The tank configuration? I find it understandable why there will be a 747-8... but even the 777-300 is (flight deck wise) the same aircraft.. So why do "we" still want e 777-200ER?? Forgive me if I miss something obvious...

It sounds and looks different depending on the engines fitted, its more realistic to operate since it is widely used, it fly's much different due to the fact that the thrust per engine can be as low as 77k vs 110k for the LR and it doesnt have the raked tips which do make a difference.  Not major stuff but i would like to see it.

IMHO: Given PMDG's good business relationship with Boeing, I would love to see in this order the 787 series, 737v3 to include the MAX, and 777v2 for the -8 and -9.  This would take us into the middle of the next decade, and the team wouldn't be starting from scratch, given some of the systems commonality in among these airframes.

Perhaps Orbx can do a LEGO airport. If that happens, PMDG can develop some companion LEGO aircraft. I can just imagine taxiing off into the plastic grass with all of those raised bumps.
