Hooray for unexpected awesome news!  I bought this fairly late in my time with fsx so didn't spend much time with it before moving to p3d, looking forward to round 2!

After PMDG said they thought it was unlikely, turns out they were just teasing us! I'm so happy I could cry lol.

I imagine Fs2Crew voice will be ported fairly quickly too :)

So they update this thing for P3D (which probably sold in tiny numbers compared to the Boeings) but they won't touch the MD-11? BOO!

;)

Can we PLEASE have somewhere this news can be discussed without the MD-11 being dragged up, sorry to be a bit sharp but it was 80%+ of the comments on Facebook. 

The J41 and MD-11 are very different circumstances:

The J41 could just be a straight port with a few P3D features such as lighting, because it was very advanced for the time and served as the NGX feature test bed, so many of the porting lessons have already been learned. 

Whereas the MD-11 would be a lot more work as it started out in FS9 so it needs a complete new visual model and also I believe some of the main developers for it have since left. The MD-11 is so old PMDG don't sell it any more or offer support! They confirmed it will not be ported nor v2 in P3D and gave their reasons, no amount of pestering will change that.

There are no decent turboprop airliners in P3Dv4 except the Q400, at least there are other big jets and triholers you can fly; just be happy for us! I don't intend to backseat moderate but there is an MD-11 section here if you want to talk about that aircraft, this is for turboprops.

would have been better if they said nothing and just released it when ready.

So looking at the VC screenshot on FB it seems the FMS has been ditched and the weather radar moved into its place. Where the WXR was appears to be some variety of GPS unit (can't tell which, it might be third party units like F1 GTN). I hope this is just an option as I rather liked the GNS XLS but I can see how removing it might save a lot of porting work.

This is great news.  The J41 is a very interesting aircraft to fly. I would love to have it for P3Dv4.

You got it!  Expect an FS2Crew for the mighty J41!

The J41 was my first add-on for FSX and it got me hooked.  It made me realize the potential of simming.  I fly P3D now so it will be good to see me old friend again.

I bet many of us have J41 stories.  It was the first 'big' airplane I got (my previous airplanes were very small).  I remember flying it from San Diego to Santa Barbara feeling like I was way over my head.  I flew it in on the VOR Rwy 25 and was just frigging amazed...still on profile...seeing the lights on the houses.  Turned final and landed.  Just sat there...relieved...excited.  These days I fly smaller and bigger both...there's not much in the J41 size.  I also appreciate the engine modelling they did...rare to find an accurate turboprop.  I wish they'd use the turboprop logic on another GA/business turboprop...compared to heavy metal, that area is wide open.  Could you imagine a PMDG GA airplane?  At least I can dream.
