PMDG Development Update, 737-600 Release Status

Another week, another update from PMDG.

PMDG has finally announced an expected release date for the Boeing 737-600. The 737-600, if all goes well, will be out to customers during this week. With the release, the long awaited update for the LNAV will also be included. This should be a significant update over the current LNAV logic, and allow for more advanced and new flying behaviour of your PMDG plane. However, PMDG is still tracking down a few last issues, so the release is still subject to these.

PMDG’s Robert Randazzo also made a statement regarding the release window of the highly anticipated 737-800. The release window is currently set for Mid August, but this is still subject to change. Another statement was made regarding MSFS Sim Update 10, which is scheduled to bring some major overhaul to our simulators in August as well. The team is slowly starting to investigate some new features that Asobo is bringing along with that update, such as a weather radar. Sim Update 10 will also fix the ‘gauge flicker’ that some users have been experiencing in their 737-700 so far.

Last but not least, Randazzo announced an update for the 737-700. The update solves several issues and bugs to various aspects of the plane, and the changelog can be found down below. Upon release of the 737-600, PMDG anticipates another -700 update to add the new LNAV module to this plane as well.
