Robert Randazzo has this Saturday shared some information about the upcoming updates for their recently released 737 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. As usual, the developer shared this information through their forums.
This particular update should’ve been released last week. However, due to a sudden switch in the development focus, this didn’t happen. On the other hand, Robert said that we could expect an update for the 737 this week.
The update is going to bring a significant feature, important mainly for home cockpit users. The PMDG 737 for Microsoft Flight Simulator is going to get pop-up displays. This feature has been around in almost every PMDG product since the days of FSX. Mathijs Kok from Aerosoft gave them the recommendation to add this feature.
Of course, the update is going to bring some bug fixes as well. However, the full changelog is going to be released once PMDG finalized the update.
A little further down into the dev update, Robert spoke about the PMDG Flight Tablet. According to him, this feature is coming along nicely towards its testing phase. This tablet is going to replace the Boeing-inspired EFB, which is now available in the PMDG 737 NGXu for Prepar3D. This tablet is going to be the home base of all aircraft operations, such as ground services, fuel and payload, equipment and more.
This is a significant change over the current options menu found in the FMC. The tablet is going to be available in all future aircraft series releases by PMDG.
Lastly, PMDG said that in the next week’s development update, we can expect the previews of the 737-600 variant. This is expected to release in June.
