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.

    Appreciation Post

    ***This may seem a fanboy post, I don't hide it, I very much love PMDG products, and I want to extend my thanks to the entire team***

    I've been using PMDG since 2010 ish, I last flew the NGX in 2017 before a hiatus from the hobby before a MSFS return, and have eagerly been waiting for the 737.

    I just completed my first of many sorties from YSSY-YCFS and in short it's everything I was hoping and expecting, after using sims since the age of 4/5 (not sure how much realistic simming at age 4 I did though ) I can now couple the in-depthness of aircraft simulation with the jaw dropping visuals of MSFS, I landed at YCFS at dusk, just beautiful. It's also very surprising I remembered all the flows after 5 years, and I hadn't watched (m)any pre-release videos, just showed how much I flew the NGX to ingrain it.

    All I need now to complete this experience is the PMDG SDK so we can get FS2Crew.
    (oh and the 600/800/900, 777, 747, 757, 767, JS41 and MD...oh I meant the B1900D )

    I can only join you in there. I have by now bought the PMDG 737 in three different versions - for FSX as boxed version, for p3Dv5 and now for MSFS. I have never regretted it. Those planes are worth every single penny. There are only very few sim developers out there who actually simulate the systems logic of the real aircraft in such a depth and communicate their progress of development in the way PMDG does.

    And you can really feel it and hear it (the sound of the trim wheel OMG!) I only took the 737 out for a short test flight, it behaves really convincing. Calibrating the hardware has been the smoothest I have experienced in MSFS.

    Keep up your great work!!

      I also join you in this. To me, PMDG is the Rolls Royce of the flight simulation world. The attention to detail is uncompromised. Thanks PMDG for all you do!


    I wholeheartedly concur with the above

    Having been a customer of PMDG for a number of years now and also owning all three flavours of 737 besides the 747 and 777 I can only add to the praise it has already received. I spent half an hour during lunch today just sitting in the cockpit at Renton having been handed the keys and walking up the steps. Setting up camera views and MCP options (I like a realistic time IRS). Listening to it whirr away to itself with fan and electrical noise. Setting up directories for Simbrief export as per the manual.

    Looking forward to getting the engines spooled and taking her for her first flight later on today.

    Hats off to the whole team, yet another amazing achievement.

      Another one in agreement here My first PMDG was for FS2002 and this one is awesome. In summary:

      The whole order, download, install cycle: sweet as a nut, spot on.

      First flight around EGGD: fantastic. I have NEVER had a 73 fly a perfect hold entry from the wrong direction without "help" before. Awesome.

      Downsides: setting up my own default panel state! That will always take forever to get just right

      I feel sorry for the guys on Support, they must be fielding gazillions of not-bugs from people not used to this level of detail

      Thanks PMDG. Out of the park again.

        Been casually playing with flight sim since way too long ago, but only with MSFS did I get serious about it. This aircraft is my first PMDG product and I can tell you that this is the most immersive sim product I have had the pleasure to fly. I have found myself trying to clear my ears several times thinking I need to because the sound pack alone is that good. Keep up the great work and I can't wait to get to the 900 and then on to the 777. Much appreciation from a new PMDG fanboy!

          Thank you- this is very kind of you all to take the time to say. Much of the credit for the details in our products goes back to customer interaction and discussion. Some of the things we do might never have crossed our own minds, but someone in this forum said, "hey- have you ever considered..." and then an idea was off and running.

          So while our team does the actual work- it is still very much a community result- and we appreciate the fun interaction we have with you all.

            Have to say i'm really enjoying the 737-700! can't wait for the 800 and future updates to the plane.


              Ditto, thank you to Everyone at PMDG, pushing 59 years of age and still feel like a little kid with a new toy... Bravo !!!!

                  If it wasn't for PMDG, I'd have a another hobby. I love PMDG planes.

                    My wallet doesn't. First purchase was the 744 for FS9. Ever since my poor wallet has suffered accordingly.

                      I've been playing flight sim for a while but I'm new to PMDG products and this B737 is everything I was hoping for. The team did an amazing job on it, and I honestly can't believe how so few people can recreate something so complex so well in the computer. I don't think I'll ever understand that. The aircraft handles so well in the sim and has all the features I would want and more. I always knew how detailed PMDG products were but I was still amazed by this product. 737 is one of my favorite narrowbody aircraft and I will be flying it a lot. I can't wait for the other variants to be released and am super excited for what else PMDG has in store for the future. To all the people who still said FS2020 was a bad sim because it didn't have any good aircraft, PMDG just proved them wrong big time.


                        Congratulations team PMDG! The 737-700 is absolutely spectacular! Ever since I fired up the default Cessna in MSFS back in August of 2020, the first thing I thought to myself was: "The PMDG 737 is going to be absolutely incredible in this simulator." Its been a long time since then but totally worth the wait.

                        The flight model feels so fluid and alive. All of the systems are beautifully modeled. The sounds are amazing and the performance is incredible. You guys knocked it out of the part. Home run! Congratulations again!

                        Thank you for developing this 737 simulation for MSFS. I can see all of the hard work that went into developing it. I eagerly await the release of the other variants, as well as the 777 and 747. I can't wait to see what you guys are going to do next.
