PMDG 737 NGXu Cargo Expansion Released for P3D

737 NGXu Cargo Expansion (2)

PMDG has just released the latest expansion for its Boeing 737 NGXu line up of aircraft. The cargo variant brings a new element to flying a 737 than just flying passengers. As the name of the package suggests, this adds the freighter variants to the base NGXu package.

The 737 freighter is a modified passenger 737 to carry cargo. At the moment, Boeing offers makes these changes to the -800 only, with another company able to convert the -700 and -800 into a freighter. Both of these variants are modeled and included in this package. As stated late last month, this package will contain the -700 BDSF, -800 BDSF, and -800 BCF. The -700 comes with the blended winglets, while both the -800 BDSF and BCF come with blended and split winglets. Alongside the different aircraft variants, the Cargo Expansion features cargo-specific ground equipment and operating features. All the associated functions in the EFB are also included. A full feature list can be found at the end of this article.

The PMDG 737 NGXu Cargo Expansion is available from PMDG’s store for $29.99 USD for Prepar3D v4.4+ and v5. Since PMDG was planning to release this during the sale but missed it, the team is offering $5 off the expansion till 2359 EDT on the 22nd. This expansion also only requires the NGXu Base Package to work.

I’ve been a very passionate flight simmers for over 12 years now and am one of the biggest AvGeeks you will meet. I make cinematic flight sim videos, and I also do a lot of real-world plane spotting in my free time. My favourite aircraft is the Boeing 747, and I always enjoy learning more and more about aviation and flight simming.
