PMDG 737 NGX on final approach


Recommended Posts

On monday morning PMDG announced that the 737 NGX is close to release. It's been in interal Beta testing for about a month and they are planning to release it for external beta testing sometime during this week.

If things work out ok in the external beta testing they also plan to publish an estimated release date within one or two days after the beta team gets the product.

So if nothing big pops up they might publish a release date during this week :icon_thumbup:

Along with this announcement they also published two new videos. Enjoy them, I sure did.

So far no word on the release date, but PMDG are starting to push out screenshots of the liveries that will be available on release.

Also, this VC shot was posted last night.. looks stunning. (Download it and look at it in full size is my tip)

That final approach announced on the 11th of May was one long final, but as of saturday the NGX has gone into Wide Beta, meaning that a select few outside of the PMDG Tech Team and Dev Team now have access to the model and are doing their best to try and break it :icon_thumbup:

From what has been said on their forum most of this time has been spent on ironing out some issues with the VNAV features on the Autopilot.

Best case scenario, the wide beta team finds no big issues and PMDG can relese the NGX before the end of the summer :icon_thumbup:

AS far as I've understood it's been in internal Beta for a while now. The Wide Beta stage is just a way of checking that it works as it should on a larger variation of hardware...

Some very nice screenshots of the exterior model can be found here.

And if you have an hour to spare check out this HD video covering every little thing in the NGX cockpit from AoA. It's stunning, and I'm worried my computer won't be able to run it :001_th_smiles48:
