Pmdg 737 Ngu P3d 1

It is a busy day at PMDG HQ as they had just shared a wealth of information and also the news that the anticipated NG3 would be coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. However in a sudden twist of events, an all-new 737 aircraft range has been released by PMDG. Titled the 737NGXu  Base Package, this is an all-new aircraft designed for Prepar3D V4.

This is a brand new aircraft built from the ground-up to take advantage of many improvements in PMDG’s code-base and technology and brings a wealth of new features and changes. The PMDG 737NGXu features an all-new system simulation, enhanced flight physics, high-resolution cockpit displays and also plenty of new equipment options within the cockpit. As previously teased, the EFB also makes an appearance with Navigraph integration.

The base package contains the 737-800, 737-900 and 737-900ER models with standard wing, blended winglet and split scimitar winglet choices, along with PBR texturing, an all-new sound set and much more.

According to Robert, “Expansion packages will roll out progressively after the base package and will include the 737-600, 737-700, BBJ and BBJ2 models. Additional packages may also be added subject to development time availability.”

You can buy the PMDG 737NGXu from PMDG’s website right now on Prepar3D V4 for $99.99 USD.
