Update Post from PMDG – NG3 Possibly Entering Beta Soon

PMDG have had time to settle in on their new forums over the past few weeks and it has been a bit quiet from them as of late. However, Robert S Randazzo from PMDG has taken the time to write out a new update post giving a little bit of information on some upcoming developments including the NG3, 747 QOTSII and also Global Flight Ops.

The first big piece of news is that the team have made “very good progress” on the NG3. Such good progress, in fact, that beta testing is now being teased to possibly take place soon. In the post from RSR, he said “in a perfect world, we will see beta testing for NG3 commence during the last few days of April, or possibly early May.” More excitingly is that is is also “highly likely” that they won’t have any kind of embargo on sharing images/video of the product. Considering we haven’t seen anything of the product despite all the teasing, we are very excited to see what delights it will bring.

The second item on the list is PMDG’s Global Flight Operations. Having announced back at FlightSimExpo 2018, it’s been some time since we’ve seen any progress. Today it was confirmed that some of the API infrastructure has been shared with other developers to begin integration of their products with the Global Flight Operations universe. Sadly, this has caused progress to slow down more than hoped, but it is all needed to ensure it’s a stable product. It was also mentioned that livery painters will also start to see invitations to Global Flight Operations to assist with testing. Here’s hoping that invitation extends to media partners (if you’re reading PMDG…).

PMDG also confirmed that a brand new update for the 747 Queen of the Skies II will also be available in the coming week (possibly Tuesday or Wednesday). This will include changes to the navdata handling, improvements of LNAV and more. After that update, it has been confirmed an additional update will follow up shortly which will include weather radar compatibility with REX products.

The final item on the update post is all to do with the real-world flying commitments with the DC-3. The team, as mentioned before, are taking the aircraft on a world-tour to various airshows across the globe. They are currently working on the final details, but there are going to be lots of opportunities for fans across the world to visit the aircraft and say hi. Finally, there is also the hope of a tracking system page for the DC-3 so you can follow the progress of the journey. They have installed a satellite tracking system to give better coverage when crossing over the Atlantic.

That wraps up everything from the post on the new PMDG forums. You can head over there now (you need an account) to see the information in full.
