PMDG 737 NGXu Base Pack: The FSElite Review

REVIEW Pmdg 737 Ngxu Base Pack
Initially, PMDG sent the community into a bit of a panic when they announced that the long-awaited and fabled NG3 would instead be heading to Microsoft Flight Simulator and not to Prepar3D. At the time, the product named NGXu was never known to the community until a few hours after the initial announcement. Whether you think it was PR suicide

As per our Community Charter, all of our reviews are free from bias, prejudice and favouritism. Don't forget, each reviewer has their own style and thoughts, although they all abide by the Review Guidelines - something I suggest you read.

One of the main reasons I have recently added X-Plane to my computer is for the availability of some planes that aren’t available for Prepar3D. One of the main aircraft types that piqued my interest was the Embraer family of airplanes. Predominantly used for shorter regional flights, the planes fit my primary flying style: flights that last 1 to 2 hours from major hubs to smaller airports and mostly based in North America.

Widely used by major airlines to shuttle passengers based on the ‘Hub and Spoke’ model, the planes often take passengers to their final destinations as a connection. Check departures and arrivals on Flightradar24 and you will see airplane identifier codes in the 130’s, 140’s, 170’s and 190’s. Those numbers represent the family of airplanes made by Embraer.

With their headquarters located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Embraer produces commercial, military, executive and agricultural aircraft. Most aviation geeks are familiar with their ERJ aircraft, comprised of the smaller 135, 140, and 145 series. There is also the slightly larger E-Jet family, which includes the 170, 175, 190 and 195. The E-Jets offer airlines an alternative to Boeing’s 737 series of airplanes. An interesting side note is that, pending a bunch of red tape, Boeing plans to purchase an 80 percent stake in Embraer’s E-Jet business by the end of 2019, adding the small jets to its commercial line.

Located on the west side of the United States, Northern California is a beautiful and diverse location both environmentally and culturally, filled with valleys, beaches, mountains, and metropolises.
