Watch the PMDG 747-8 In Action [Beta]

Pmdg 747 8 Chewwy

Twitch stream Chewwy94 has been granted special access to the beta version of the upcoming PMDG 747-8. With access to the latest from PMDG, he took to the stream-waves and spent several hours going through new systems, features, view points and more that the community can expect upon release.

Chewwy covers things such as the new on-board systems, the PMDG Rain Maker, the brand new ACARS system and how it links in with the announcement of PMDG Global Flight Ops. There was lots of great things shown off in the 8 hour stream and even a few PMDG faces popped in to say hello.

With the aircraft now really being shown to the world, we can only guess that a release is closer than not. Just to save you time, release dates and prices were not mentioned in the stream by either Chewwy or PMDG developers.

Aerosoft Planning to Release A320/321 Professional September

A321 07082018 002.png.5e1cb1c569dc16a18ce04e3ffd95c517

After various previews of the upcoming Professional Airbus series by Aerosoft, a date has been finally set down for when the community can complete their narrow-body Airbus fleet from Aerosoft. According to a post on Monday by Mathijs, the current plan to release the A320/321 Professional is for a launch on Thursday September 6th.

It was also confirmed that a 32-bit version of the Professional series won’t be happening. This means users of the current Airbus models in FSX and P3Dv3 will no longer be receiving substantial updates for those aircraft. The reason being is that the 32-bit market is dying out pretty rapidly and the cost of conversion would be higher than the possible return. Of course, if those users have jumped to P3Dv4, then you can pick up the Professional series for a reduced rate. However, as we reported a few days ago, there is still a possibility that a 32-bit version of the A330 will happen.

In the mean time, Stefan did show off some of the differences between the overhead panel of the variety of Airbus models. You can also view some external modelling shots here.
