Over on their forums, PMDG’s own Robert Randazzo has given another update on the progress and the development status of their highly anticipated Boeing 737 for MSFS. In the update, Robert talks about the current status of testing the plane as well as more concrete development items that are currently in progress.
One of the biggest take-aways from the blog post is the test status of the plane. Robert shares that the plane is now “being flown on complete flight stages”. He also shares that the simulation is very stable and the team has switched from implementation to refinement. However, that doesn’t mean the plane is ready quite yet. There are still a number of development and refinement tasks open. A particular focus point is integration with MSFS at the moment, from making sure the key binds work to adapting PMDG’s customised capabilities to the platform and taking its strengths into account.
As the progress is coming along so nicely, the developer has now set where they intend to start the beta and they are feeling very confident in making this date. Even more, the team felt confident enough about the progress on the plane that they’ve set a release window, although it remains an internal release window for now and PMDG is not quite ready to share it yet.
