Boeing didn’t stop improving and expanding on the 777 family after they finished the original 777-200. In the same way, PMDG didn’t just forget about their 777-200LR/F when they initially released it. They released a major service pack at the beginning of last summer, and concurrently they also released an expansion pack in the form of the 777-300ER, the biggest and baddest variant of the family. This expansion is what this review is all about.

When A2A Simulations first announced that they were doing an Accu-Sim C172, many within their community were actually quite upset. After all, with the exception of the B377 that started the whole thing off and the later Piper J3 Cub, all of the Accu-Sim models have been warbirds. That’s what the community wanted, even demanded. In the clear light of day, however, the C172 was very much a hit. Many of the “warbird-only” fliers are now flying, shock horror, a modern GA ‘Spam Can’. Even worse, they’re enjoying flying a modern GA ‘Spam Can’. More to the point, it also…

The Boeing 737 series aircraft is a short to medium-range twin-engine narrow-body jet airliner that also happens to be the best-selling jet airliner in the history of aviation. Milviz has chosen to recreate the 737-200c variant that originally entered service in April of 1968. In total 1010 of the 200s were built. The 737-200c (Convertible) allowed the conversion between passenger and cargo use. An interesting capability of the 737-200, which is not shared with any other similarly-sized jet aircraft, is its ability to operate from unimproved or unpaved landing strips, such as gravel runways with the “gravelkit” modification installed. The…

We’ve had several highly anticipated releases the last 2 months. The A2A Simulations Cessna C172 Trainer, and Aerosoft/Flightsimsoft PFPX come to mind. But the highly anticipated release I’ll be talking about here, is the Precision Manuals Development Group 777LR/F. After the Jetstream 41 and the Boeing 737, PMDG is back to a long range, wide-body aircraft!

This is the second review that I have written to be in a much more personal, “first person” style. The aim of this style is to show you guys, the readers and simmers that you are, how easy it basically is to make your flights interesting and somewhat different. I often hear of people that simply fly from place to place, and then they end up being bored with simming because it’s always the same. Of course this is not the case for everybody, but for those that recognize this situation, this review is for you. What I will do,…

This is a rather unorthodox review. Normally when I write a scenery review, I take the Trike Ultralight, takeoff, do some low passes, take screenshots, then stop the flight. I then select several jetliners, like the PMDG 737NGX, LDS767 and PMDG 747 (if appropriate), and do some circuits with them, to check performance. I take notes, and then start writing the review. Now and then I start up FSX to check out additional things. This method works pretty well for sceneries, save for the fact that some airplanes will have to be swapped depending on the airport’s size (not going…
