  1. I mean, I don't know if any beta testing of any PMDG aircraft that took years once beta testing started, so I guess he's not necessarily wrong.

    CPDLC explained

    So what'd you end up doing for your logbook.
  3. It's at least 2.2 by this point.

    My uncle is a fed-ex pilot.....

    For what reason exactly. The 777-200LR, -300ER, and freighter have already been out for a few years now, so I'm a little confused as to what this would accomplish.

    pmdg748 News

    They will post something when they have something to post. As far as I'm aware, it has not gone into beta testing yet, so nothing new for them to post.

    Infos about a 737 upgrade?

    Nope. As far as I'm aware, they're trying to get the 747-8 out, and I know they're working on GFO. I don't even know how far they've gotten with this 737, so I wouldn't expect anything anytime soon.

    777 Thrust Lost during Takeoff Roll

    I can't say I've ever moved them fully forward, as I never do that even with a manual thrust settings. I do, however, push them up as far forwards as I think would match the thrust setting I've selected.
  8. It certainly seems like a good idea, and I used to play Airline Empires. Ultimately, I stopped as I couldn't commit the time to it anymore. I'm not sure if I'd have enough time for this one. Nothing against you, of course. Just my schedule.

    I do have one question for you, though. If you're building a new system, is there any particular reason why you would continue to use FSX rather than upgrade to either P3D V4 or X-plane 11. I'm just curious. Ultimately, the choice is really yours.

    PMDG Announced Global Flight Operations at FSE 2018

    Yeah, I'm in the same position as you with this one. I'll certainly get the 747-8 when it comes out. As for GFO, I need clarification on something first, which I asked, but never quite got that confirmation, so hard to say with this one. Unfortunately, it sounds like I might not be able to use it given the way I fly. I'm sure the presentation gives some information as to what GFO offers, but unfortunately, I don't have time to sit and watch a video that's however long it is, especially knowing that I will most likely miss something and have to go back and replay it, which eats up more time. It's far more easier for me to read an official announcement on the forum, and that way, I can read it at my own pace. I'd like to think I could find a use for GFO, but it's hard to say at this point without more information.

    PMDG 747-400 Engine Variants

    The liveries already have the appropriate engine variants specified. I don't know why you'd change them since using different engines would be unrealistic, and you would then need to paint the engine textures for different engine variants.

    North America waypoint?

    IGN is a VOR, not really sure what the numbers mean. Maybe a heading and distance? I don't know.

    Las Vegas June 2018

    Negative, sir. I wasn't there, either, and I'm waiting for official word from PMDG. I know there's YouTube videos and live streams out there, but I don't have time to sit there and watch all of them. It's a lot faster for me to read it on my own time.
  14. If I read correctly, it's possible to use ACARS to get weather information and to use CPDLC to communicate with the controllers on VATSIM, which is most likely what I'd be using anyhow if this function was available. That said, the only plane I fly for the most part is my own, so you wouldn't have any information in your aircraft database about my plane anyhow. It wasn't really so much a request as much as it was a question clarifying what I was able to do with it, but by the sounds of it, I wouldn't be able to use GFO since I only fly one plane, therefore cannot use ACARS or CPDLC, either.

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    Okay, I was hoping I wouldn't have to do this, but I'm just going by what I've seen here. This was said back in 2014, mind you. Another one in 2014. And this back in 2013. One other thing to take into consideration is that they must have had the data for all of the 747-400s and the 747-8 to be able to do what they did. Do they have the data for the -200ER? I don't know. If they don't, that's definitely going to stop them from being able to get far since they aren't really one for just sticking the engines on the wings and calling it done, they'd need to model the flight dynamics for it. But I don't work for PMDG, so I don't know any more of what's going on than you do. All I have to go by is whatever was posted here in the past.
