PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal,

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    Any date regarding the Max for the new flight sim


    sorry if it’s found else where in the forums but wondering if there’s any update regarding the 737 Max for the new MS flight sim?


    Phil will

    Hasn't even been confirmed.

    EDIT: They've hinted at a MAX in the past, but there has been no official confirmation.

      No its been confirmed. RSR has replied to people, including myself, confirming a Max is in the works. Things can always change but as far as the public is aware the last we knew is a Max is being developed.

      I think RSR was hinting at a Max for the NGXu but waiting on the proper time to release due to politics, optics, and Boeing approval. I do not believe it was for MSFS at this time. I am sure there will be one but first they need to release the base NG3 for MSFS.

      Or first quarter 2024 lol.

    That's still a ways away. Remember that RSR would have said there are still ironing out issues with the new sim. So the NG3 (at the time) was over a year away.


      Man they haven't even released the NG3 yet you wanna know about the next project? Slow down let them at least get one product out.

        You‘ll never get a release date by PMDG. All you might get is an expected time frame and that‘s always subject to change.

          I have confirmed a couple of times that MAX is in our product spectrum. The open question on this topic is how to present such a product to the marketplace in a manner that is tasteful and appropriate given the market circumstances surrounding MAX's operational history.

          Once we answer those questions, I will be able to give you a better picture of how that will go...

            Follow southwest.
            You have many airlines that are already flying them revenue. Actually today will be smartwings first.
            Think a lot of people in the industry thought that people were gonna be scared to fly on it, however with covid19, and other major events that took place after it and how the media blasted those events out there not many people actually remember the MAXs issues and flies on it.

            I have hope by June or July you will be able to ease it into the sim line up P3D v4.5/p3d v5 and possibly MSFS (if its there for it)

            As a fellow airline professional, believe me when I say that the whole MAX situation is already in the rearview mirror compared to the all-encompasisng situation causes by Covid-19. Compared to that, the MAX is a spec of dust that is on nobody's radar anymore, not even the general public. For us as a 'aviation hobby niche' now would be the perfect time to bring the MAX addon to market now that re-certification done & dusted.

            Kind regards,
            Henk de Vries

          A Max would defiantly be something cool to see in the simulator and a great addition to the current PMDG 737 fleet of aircraft available.. I would definitely do some Southwest flights in it
