I'm going to use the "Great Circle Route' on this one. I saw the part of the presentation where Robert introduced this new product. As he went through the presentation there was one slide that showed the platform choices. He made a comment about X-Plane being there eventually. Would it be wrong to deduce that if Global Operations were to include X-Plane that there would have to be PMDG aircraft to use with it?

There was, actually...

Hmm. My stream must have buffered when it was mentioned, because I don't remember hearing anything about it. Or was it not part of the presentation?

Very disappointing news and totally not worth the one month hype.. It is just a slight extension of what you do in Virtual Airlines or FSEconomy.. Nothing ground breaking.. Secret for 10 years? Come on.. 

 

Totally agree.

If I recall correctly, they mentioned the 'precipitation feature' would be integrated into the 777, 747 AND NG3, which 'confirms' the latter existence

He mentioned NG3 when talking about the EFB portion of his presentation when showing the 748, saying that the integrated checklists and such would be integrated in to 748/777/NG3, but not in to 744 since the EFB portion never came to them. He showed off a bunch of the dynamic checklist features on the 748, and went pretty at length. The EFB will also have Jeppson charts built in, as well as a ground handling system that shows the airport taxiways for easier ground navigation. That is also updatable through the EFB, and at the press of 2 buttons he says it uses your airport library data to update it all in 30 second or less. So regardless of what brand of third party airports you use, or if you just use default scenery that the taxiways and such will be accurately modeled to reflect what you see outside the windows. Also NG3 will be getting the special weather effects like rain on the windshield, and snow accumulation that were pretty cool. That was really all that was said about it.

is the NG3 the 600 700 800 900 or the MAX series or both? 

I am so confused. Why can't they just be straight up with us for once?

They talk about the NG3 once in awhile but they have never actually "announced" it.

I am actually very intrigued by this announcement and I think it matches perfectly with their product line-up. Sounds much more exciting to me than yet-another 737.

Also very happy that they mentioned it will support X-Plane! 🙂

Global Flight Operation is an awesome thing in my opinion! Kind of a logical development when you look at pmdg products. Looking forward to it! 

I didnt see the whole show, was there anything about the actual state or time schedule for GFO?

Nothing ground breaking.

Other people have fully featured (and integrated and in-plane) ACARS traffic: weather requests, OOOI times, CPDLC capability, arrival data servicing, and automated multi-user persistent states?

...man...where have I been? I want that plane.

*looks around noting that the desert around Vegas is incredibly similar to the metaphorical deserted landscape of aircraft that have the functions listed*

 

 

I guess I need to go learn the real definition of "ground breaking." Back later, once I figure that one out...

I already feel sorry for the poor bugger who will have the plane after me. 🤩
