I originally purchased PDMG 737 about a year ago, and today was studying up on the use of CWS (Control Wheel Steering).  I can't believe I've never gotten around to learning about this tool that is incredibly useful.  I'd suggest to anyone not familiar with its use to google it, especially anyone new to the 737.   I've also flown the first tutorial in the manual an embarrassing number of times, highly suggest going through those too.

Thanks,

Boomer / Hawkeye - care to share any initial impressions of your 737 purchase?   Also, from what airport was your initial flight (just curious).

I bought the 777 originally. Flew it for about a year then switched to the 737.

The two most exciting times of flying any plane? The take off and landing.

The 777 (and I imagine the 747) are good planes, but they are long distance flights. Unless you use a time compression (I don't), you're flying for hours on end just to land the plane.

737? 1-5 hour flights, and experience the best part of the flight faster. 

I also felt the 777 was too automated for me. The 737 was a mix of automation vs non, and its a good blend.

I too have considered the NGX for a little while now.  I've been flying the 744 almost exclusively for about 10ish years now (both -400X and the new QII) and still love it.  I was looking for a new challenge aside from the Boeing line.  Something with short field capability to get into some of the more regional airports and such.  I ended up going in the regional turboprop direction.  I may still get the NGX but not sure yet.  Perhaps Boomer can provide pros/cons from a 744 point of view?

Tell that to Japan Airlines and ANA, they both flew 747s on short domestic routes routinely back when they still had them. Narita to Kansai and back comes to mind.

There are exceptions to every rule. ;)
