I have had this in my virtual hanger for years now. This is the first simulation i bought from PMDG and it cost a small fortune back then and would still be regarded as a small fortune for a sim by today’s standards at $79.00. Back then my PC was older and it struggled to run this at any reasonable FPS. It’s been nagging me at the back of my mind to dust it off and try it out again. So i did and boy is it good. I would say it’s right up there with the 737-800 NGX. Not as polished but in terms of complexity and system depth it is on par. I forgot how massive it is and that weight comes across so well within the simulation.
The FMS is simulated so well that you can use the actual MacDonald Douglass manual that pilots are issued with to programme it to a high degree of accuracy. I printed the manuals out for this back in the day and thankfully i still have them.
Running this fantastic simulation now on a modern rig is great. I’m off to New York virtually of course.
