Initially, PMDG sent the community into a bit of a panic when they announced that the long-awaited and fabled NG3 would instead be heading to Microsoft Flight Simulator and not to Prepar3D. At the time, the product named NGXu was never known to the community until a few hours after the initial announcement. Whether you think it was PR suicide or genius, the fact remains that the community got a brand new 737 Next Generation aircraft almost out of the blue.

Introduction

The 737NG remains on the most popular aircraft in the world. The aircraft developed by Boeing has always been a staple in the aviation industry thanks to its versatility, cost and overall passenger satisfaction. In recent years there have been a lot of hot topics surrounding the aircraft maker, but the 737 is still one of the most used aircraft in the world. As such, it’s a hugely popular aircraft for simmers to want to get their hands on. For many years, FSX/P3D users have had the PMDG 737NGX to get their fix of flying in the aircraft type. Despite how often it is still used, the aircraft released nearly 10 years ago for FSX. Technology has changed significantly since then. Despite a time where once PMDG vowed their products would never be in a Lockheed Martin simulator, the PMDG NGXu has been specifically built for Prepar3D v4, meaning that this is the first time one of their aircraft has been built exclusively with 64-bit technology in mind.
