PMDG 747-8 Feature Tour and First Look

Update: Chris, the person who did the video, is actually part of the development team, not the beta team (anymore). We’ve updated the post a bit to reflect this. Thanks to Kyle for pointing this out to us.

Since the release of the PMDG 747-400 Queen of the Skies II, many people have been eager to get their hands on the newer and more technologically advanced version of the aircraft: the B747-8. We were teased some new previews a little while ago, but it would appear now that PMDG are allowing internal developers to share their first impressions, videos and more. The first one we’ve seen comes from the YouTube channel by oal260.

The 20 minute video takes us through a tour of the cockpit, some features of the plane, including the EFB, airport database and performance calculator.

Watch it above and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Remember, this is a beta version.

The EFB is absolutely amazing. The moving map feature, the checklist system. This is why PMDG is, IMHO. The Best!

I look forward to a sneak peak at the sounds when they’re available.

What kind of sorcery is this??

I really like their EFB integration with the Navigraph charts. I hope QW eventually are able to make this possible in their 787 when it’s out for P3D.

QW 787 for ap3D will be Q3 2021 matter, don’t waste your time thinking about a so far target, just live in the present

Interesting. Its pretty nice to see that they keep improving their skills since FS2004.

A much better rendition than what QW has (theirs isnt complete by far, but the charts and moving map work just fine)

can’t comment on CS. i gave up on them years ago

Well Mr Lol, did you see the greyed “send output” button? Well I wonder why that is a function in QW 🙂

This is the real EFB. I think Captain Sim should be dismissed. Compared to PMDG, CS are pathetic arrogant team. And why you deleted the interview with Captain Sim? Their attitude was horrible af.

“many people have been eager to get their hands on the older and more technologically advanced” .. interesting

All good, my friend 🙂

My bad. Was going to write something else and then changed it without reading back on it.

Fixed it 🙂

Thanks for pointing it out
