What will be the next airplane from PMDG ?

Recommended Posts

Honestly a 767 would be fantastic, especially all of the -200/-300/-400 series. I wouldn't be surprised if PMDG announced it...Loving their brown cockpits.

Don't forget about that 757 gents... Beautiful bird...

It is obligatory to produce a 757 if a 767 is made and vice versa.  Otherwise, the Boeing Gods will not look favourably upon us! :laugh:

I beg to differ on the 737MAX doesn t have enough data... multiple airlines have it flying revenue (southwest, lion air, Norwegian, and westjet) and many more to come (American, air Canada, etc.) The 737NGX  sold like hotcakes at IHOP. Huge hit for the pmdg market.

 

I believe that PMDG goes to specific airlines (or at least has a preference) to get their performance data and spends copious amounts of time in simulators to get data for their aircraft, which is supplemented by documentation that PMDG obtains from Boeing. (At almost certainly tremendous cost.)

I doubt that Boeing would currently be in a state to release this performance data to the public.  The airlines that PMDG have/will (if they are planning on making a MAX) approach(ed) may not have the aircraft or may not be willing to let a few guys walk around their aircraft and record a whole lot of things and may not have the simulators or may be in the process of training crews continuously for the new addition to their fleets. (These things run 24/7 - I went to a LevelD 744 sim at 11PM until 2AM because all other time slots were taken by crews!)

While I am almost certain that PMDG will make a 737MAX, I don't think it is just going to come out in the next few weeks and I doubt that any real development would have begun due to the reasons that I outlined above. I am almost certain that PMDG knows very well that there is a big interest in the 737MAX from us consumers and that this would be a massive cash cow...

I have heard there are Zero 737MAX simulators by CAE  for any airline...so stating that fact, I'm wondering if PMDG gets info off of those simulator which would make sense. Starting a clear model for the plane can be started otherwise, and everything else will come along in time. I don't expect a MAX from PMDG  in the next year, but I do expect to here a plan for it by Q2  of 2018

Would be a dream come true!  I love the 764 (I know only a few operators, but it's my favorite bird and is close to the 777).

Would equally love if they did the ERJ-175 series...

My only hope is they stick to aircraft in the last 2 decades...historicals are fun, but just not what I typically sim.

I cannot believe that the Jetstream would have sold more units than the MD-11 during the FSX era.  How is that even possible?  It's such a random aircraft.  Yet the J-41 has made it back into P3DV4.......who even flies those anymore?  (no-one needs to data mine the answer)

I still think that it's not inconceivable that we'll see the MD-11 again.

It is without doubt. . . One if the most rewarding planes to fly in fsx.

I reckon PMDG might do a helicopter, only because then it would stop people moaning about the wingflex not being realistic. :biggrin:

You joke . . . But a PMDG level helicopter has been missing for years. Not a bad idea!

Rotor blade flex is a thing too.:laugh:

Aye, like the bumblebea and the F4 Phantom  (aka the flying brick), they are not meant to fly...

Ah well sorta, the F4 proved you could make a barn door fly with enough power.  Helicopters don't fly, they beat the air into submission.

After what has been a pretty depressing few days for me personally (house problems and potential loss of my job) I have to say that at least managed to turn my lips into a brief smile - thank you!

Can we assume this means there will be no PMDG Helo anytime soon then? ;)

Just in case you decide to dabble in magic . . . The AW189!

I know I'm late on this topic but I have a lot to say. :)

 

While I was a really big fan of FSX and P3Dv4 or FS2002/2004 when I was younger I recently fell in love with XP11.

Everything is just amazing. From the feels to the looks it's awesome. So now I'm talking to PMDG.

 

I really wish we will get a brand new Boeing 737NG Series. Including:

- right VC proportions with a HUGS option

- Options between new and old lights (including exterior differences e.g. Anti-Collision and retractable landing -lights new/old type like in the freeware TDS versions)

- No Winglets/ Winglets and Split Scimitar

- SFP and a bunch more features.

 

I know this might sound rude in some way to demand things but please let me dream at least :)

The 737 are just awesome airplanes and don't you think it's time for PMDG to make a brand new version too?

 

 

Have a great day and many happy landings.

René

Helicopters are magical machines.  Do not disrespect whirly birds - they are equally enjoyable to fly frantically wrestle (with the smallest cyclic inputs imaginable) into the air. (Provided you don't lose the rotor blades...) I have the Huey and Gazelle in DCS and they are just as fun as the MiG21, A10C, Viggen, any other good DCS module or any glorious PMDG bird.  :D

Once you spend a month or two of failing, (mast bumping, VRS, PIO, more PIO, stupidity and more PIO) you just get the hang of it (presumably through the sorcery that Kyle mentioned) and can do a lot in a helicopter that you cannot do in a fixed wing bird.  Going from being on the ground to a smooth hover in ground effect is one of the most satisfying things that I have ever accomplished.

Still hoping PMDG would consider a C-17...yes it is military, but it is a Boeing and given foreign sales, it is not a tech transfer issue...and given how often the plane is used in humanitarian missions, you could argue it has been used more to deliver salvation and it is not a direct weapons platform...

Had a blast on a police ride along back in 2009, honestly. Still...not for me. I appreciate their functionality on somewhat of a personal level (I pulled a kid out of a pool back in high school as a lifeguard, and he only survived because they'd airlifted him to a local hospital; I got to see first hand how law enforcement uses them, too), but they still kinda freak me out. I like my wings fixed, thank you.

I suggest DC10 / MD-11, Boeing's 777 and 737 upgrades.

 

777 X and 737 Max

I would LOVE a -200/ER. Iconic, popular and fun. If not, a 767 :)
