737 PIC???

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the product offering at Flight 1 when I noticed the 737PIC for FSX. Is anyone flying this aircraft in FSX? If so how is it? Does it compare to the LDS 767 and PMDG 747? PMDG has said they plan to release a 737NG in the future. But I would like to have a high quality short range craft in the mix some time soon.

I fly it with a group of others and its great. The only problem I have is I dont use the FMC so I cheated and added a GPS. It doesn't 'see' it for navigation so I fly the AP in heading mode.

Does the FMC not work, or do you just choose not to use it?Thanks:RTH

Of course it works and if your going to buy this aircraft you will love it.If you need help there are plenty of tutorials available to use. The FMC also has the ability to load the flight plan from the normal flight planner then, all you need to do is to fill out the 'Init' page to fianlise your planned flight.One of the best places to go for advise is the 'Feelthere' forum that is run very well by Dave Scobie.

I've been flying it for a week, & with the help of theseforums, it's been going very well. I have the DVD version& I'm using FSX SP1 & 2.I like the FMC, which works well for me & I can use all myold FS flight plans. VNAV & LNAV work well. I've had up to50 or so fps out in the countryside. It's great to getweather radar back again & TCAS traffic display. Greatautoland.You need to be careful landing in complex airports likeHeathrow & LA. It's essential to cut back on traffic &maybe the weather radar. No problems with Megasceneriesor VFR Real Scenery. Good cockpits & views.Peter Sydney Australia 2 Core Duo 4 gig ram Vista SP1

I have it and I like it. It is a good plane, a little hard to read the text in the cockpit though. The Level D is just awesome. It is by far my favorite for FSX at this time, a really well done add-on.

I doubt Flight1 would sell anything from Wilco.You sure they are selling that 737PIC?

It says "Detailed Virtual Cockpit, 3D cockpit and passenger cabin"I have the CoolSky MD80, and much of the flight can be done in the VC mode:can this 737 be flown from the VC WITHOUT using the 2D windows?

$60 OOOUUCHHHH......I had the Fs9 version.UUUmmmm. Want be getting that one.IMO the FSX looks better but the Flight model is terrible.I refreshed Flight1 page and now see all they offer.Looks like some Wilco stuff available as CD.Also selling some planes that I thought their companies were out of business.Cant beat Flight1 though when you need to reload or support.

Well, I can't. It's just too hard to see what's what. Maybe because I run at high resolution. It probably could be done, but to me it's just much easier to switch to 2d.

>I had the Fs9 version.if you have the FS9 version on CD you can collect the FSX update from wilco.if you purchased the FS9 version as download you can collect a FSX version from your wilco download space.if you wish to run the FSX version on a VISTA system you must purchase a VISTA update.--

It should be kept in mind that the 737PIC and the PMDG 737NG packages are different aircraft. The PIC covers the old "Glass Guppies", the 300-500 series, while the PMDG birds are the NextGen 600-900s with the full glass panels and efficient engines. I own both for FS9 and upgraded the PIC to FSX. I enjoy both equally well and they function nicely for me. Though with the VA, I fly more of the PIC than the PMDG since we haven't purchased that many 600/700s yet thus I don't get assigned to them as frequently as the 300/400s we have.----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satellite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.

The wilco 737 rewrites the dll.xml file and can cause a panel initialisation error when you load the 767-this is a major PITA and can ruin a working LDS 767 installation.No fixes easily possible.Not personal opinion-apparently this issue was picked up by the PMDG 747 developers.I would caution against installing both.IMHO the LDS 767 cant be beat.Jay

I have the PIC 737, the LDS 763 and the PMDG 747, all for FSX running Vista and have no problems.

I have heard of the issue and it seems that it has been known to mess up the dll.xml (something about using the wrong carriage return symbols). One can hope that Victor et al can correct it in the near future.----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satellite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004, MIDCON P-401"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.
