PMDG Updates Boeing 777 Product Line

PMDG 777 PBR (3)

A few days ago, PMDG has issued an update for their Boeing 777 product line. The update, according to Robert Randazzo, is focussed on improving the ‘quality-of-flight’. This includes updates to the pitch control mode of the C*U mode of fly-by-wire, as well as improvements to accelerations at high AOA/ANU whilst the aircraft was rolling on the main landing gear. The update also brings some other changes and improvements, that can be found in the changelog below, and touch many different aspects of the plane.

The update can be acquired through the PMDG Operations Center. Robert warns that after the update, you might need to go through the livery repair process in the Ops Center. Furthermore, we noticed that several liveries have disappeared from the Ops Center, so you might want to back these up first. This apparently has to do with some liveries being Global Flight Ops exclusive and previously being made available ‘by accident‘.
