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, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

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.

    That would depend on the licensing agreement they have with Boeing, but given the 737 and the 747 didn't come with them, I would be very surprised if the 777 did.

      detailed look into the fan blades of the United 777 that suffered a similar uncontained engine failure in 2018, coincidentally, that incident also happened in February.

      PMDG puts an incredible amount of work into their products. We are lucky to have them and their high quality aircraft.

        Well I don’t like your forum name But I agree somethings up with these old Pratt’s... Two sequential line numbers... Wonder if they fixed or trashed the 2018 engine and if they fixed it where did it wind up?

        To those saying Boeing won’t allow failures with visual fire..
        An expensive Airbus addon I happen to love will do that but out the exhaust pipe without missing pieces if you choose to simulate an engine fire. It’s quite unnerving and perhaps is there to lend some gravitas to the situation. I’m excited to try an engine out with the T7 in the coming weeks!

          Pretty sure that's just something that shows on all planes by default

          The name was from an anti-airbus phase, I’d love to get a study level A320.

          The airframes were built sequentially but not necessarily the pair of engines they had.

        I think Boeing and PMDG have the right idea when it comes to simulating an engine failure. I can't imagine there will be a single pilot out there who has suffered a catastrophic engine failure, especially like this latest one at Denver in a United B777, who will ever want to experience another realistic one even in a PC flight simulation! They can't pull off the road and have a stiff drink to settle the inevitable adrenaline rush when it first happens for real and the priority is to land at the nearest suitable airfield, which might be more than an hour away on the one remaining engine.

        Apparently, the airlines are currently grounding their B777's if they are fitted with this same Pratt and Whitney engine, presumably until they know the exact cause and how long it will be to fix if it subsequently turns out to be a major manufacturing or design problem and not a one-off. As for Angelo's user name, sadly I have to agree with you it is in bad taste, but having said that loads of Americans in New York wanted to do the same to Concorde and look what a fantastic technological achievement those aircraft turned out to be!

          The emergency airworthiness directive I read required specific inspections. My novice interpretation is that once inspections are complete and any discrepancies are fixed then the aircraft is airworthy. In my mind there is a distinction between grounding and mandating an inspection in that groundings are usually of an indeterminate time.

          I know I can just cut off the fuel to 1 engine and simulate an engine failure, but it wouldn't be a surprise anymore. I flew the PMDG 777 and 737 many times on 1 engine and noticed they handle pretty well and landing is not difficult at all. Is that pretty much true in real life? (plane flies pretty straight without any substantial corrections)

            The adverse yaw has never been particularly well modeled by PC sims, including in GA twins. This is partly intentional, because most users don't have the gear to reproduce the full range of control inputs for asymmetric steering. Acquaint yourself with the malfunction options in the FMS, there's a pretty good selection in there.

          The Russians are a lot worse. In fact, it's what's adversely affected DCS, since the developers are a Russian company and there's a serious dearth of study-level Russian aircraft in the sim, even there's only a few Soviet-era aircraft in there that isn't affected by their restrictions due to them being largely obsolete.

            Hi Paul,
            If real pilots gave away all of the secrets of their fine art then everybody would want to be a jet jockey and the answer to your question wouldn't be a secret anymore, would it? But if you ever get the chance maybe you should ask this question to the Captain of the United T7 at Denver, because I'm sure many of us would love to know what he thought about having to land on one engine and a few spare parts.

              Michael I am with you

              I have had three (yes three) real life engine failures in my career: two in the military and one in an aerobatic aeroplane. They are not something I care to repeat in the sim, no matter how true to life. They are frightening and I am good inch and a half shorter from one of them

              I've done double engine failure on the same side in the 744 sim, in two RB211 boxes and one CF6 box. The latter for some reason had insufficient roll and yaw authority to maintain straight and level, we went over to 120 deg of bank and nosed into the Heathrow cargo centre at around 30 deg nose down. That in itself left me shaking for a few hours after, it was compellingly real

            OK, I am calling him now to ask him. I'll let you know what he says.
