Interesting post from RSR

Take this as you will, especially the MAX part...

“Our schedule is pretty heavy with the 747-8, and even when we get that one released, we will still be pretty MAX'd out...”

Would not a 737-MAX be a more logical read?

Exactly what I was thinking, a pretty strong indication that they are doing a 737 Max next!

Who's RSR?

The boss at PMDG. Full name is Robert S Randazzo but people often refer to him by his initials being RSR.

Makes perfect sense to do the max as the NG is probably the most popular aircraft within the flight sim world

Logical move! Obviously it is time to "update" PMDG 737 series.

I had a feeling they are doing a 737 upgrade but is it going to just be a max expansion, or an entire 737 series? I am debating holding off on the 737 for p3d license until they announce something officially. maybe I'll buy the TFId 717 to hold me over. Getting bored of only 777 flights that is the only passenger jet I have for p3d.

Personally I would think it is a new series, not an expansion.

I do remember RSR mentioning the possibility of a 737v3 last year.  Glad to hear PMDG will take it to the MAX :)

I remember a changelog for the Operations Center reading “added preliminary data handling structure for NG3/MAX” so I’m inclined to be,wife we are getting a whole new NGX series, maybe (hopefully) like the 747 series with a ton of models and variants included like the freighter and the -ER variants.

Big question is if they ever did do a C-series would their partner Boeing lobby for a tariff on every copy sold? :biggrin:

Reality is if they are making a 737 Max we won’t have it probably for about another 2 years knowing PMDG.

You never know, they tend to have multiple projects going at once and utilizing the workflow from the 747 and -8, as well as the team being fully rested and have taken their time off after the v4 compatibility push, you may just be suprised how fast they can go with just one project on their plate working on it full time. 2 years is a good estimate and assumption, though.

Indeed, unfortunately, and not to the satisfaction of many others. I think the simple fact is PMDG are on a roll and a set track. After the -8 will be the Max, and utilizing the engines from the -8 and the new tech and the cockpit displays from the Max, I think it’s fialy safe to say their next project after the Max juts might be the 787. They have a lot on their plate with a set roadmap, and I just don’t think the 767 fits into either. I think the best hope for a good 767 will be LevelD making a v2 of their 767, however many decades that will take.

First day buy but unfortunately that day will likely be late 2019. As long as they get the window geometry correct :biggrin:

Of course what the post doesn't say is 'MAX'd out making something for P3D'. We can assume it's for P3D, but we could be wrong about that part lol. :dry:
