PMDG 777-300ER Release Date Confirmed

Robert Randazzo has taken to the PMDG Forums to finally after a long wait announce the release date window of the highly anticipated Boeing 777-300ER for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

After what Robert Randazzo described as a lengthy and vigorous internal process, the team has agreed on releasing the PMDG 777-300ER on June 25th, 2024, with a possible delay until June 30th, if there would be any polishing needed to be done to the aircraft.

More Details of 777-300ER’s Features

With that, Robert also mentioned that the product line will eventually grow of the 777F, 777-200ER and 777-200LR, each as unique products, the way we know it with the PMDG 737 series.

The PMDG team promises to deliver a study-level recreation of this Boeing long-haul aircraft, with detailed simulations of both normal and abnormal situations the plane can get into. The 777-300ER will also include the upgraded PMDG Universal Flight Tablet with many new features. The plane will have a Simbrief compatibility out of the box, with a modern navdata format.

According to the forum post, the aircraft will also include realistic tyre wear simulation, along with accurate fluid flow rates, fuel consumption, temperatures, pressures and much more. The plane also includes the Boeing electronic checklist system.

The PMDG 777-300ER will be very suitable for long-haul flights, with its highly realistic engine behaviour and fuel consumption, together with Hoppie ACARS datalink, the plane will make an ultimate choice for many long-haul flight enjoyers.

As with any previous release by PMDG, the 777 will be highly customisable of equipment, this includes antennas, instruments, brakes and even customisable failures that may happen during the flight.

Robert Randazzo also spoke of the cabin, which will have simulated passenger signs and you will be able to get to it by opening the cockpit door. The cabin will also include Boeing’s Sky Interior, which will change the mood lighting based on day and night cycle changes.

The same amount of detail went into the sounds, the cockpit and the external model, too. The sounds will reflect the environment the user camera is in, as you move around the exterior and interior of the cabin, the sounds will change. Robert also mentions that there are still many features to come to this rendition of the Boeing 777-300ER, and some of the current features are going to be highlighted by the developer in the coming week.
