PMDG Development Update, 737-600 Release Status

PMDG has finally announced an expected launch date for the Boeing 737-600. 737-600, if all goes well, it will be available to customers During this week. With the release, the long-awaited update for LNAV will also be included. This should be a significant update to the existing LNAV logic, and allows for new, more advanced flight behavior for your PMDG aircraft. However, PMDG is still tracking some recent issues, so the release is still subject to these issues.

PMDG’s Robert Randazzo also made a statement regarding the highly anticipated release window of the 737-800. Release window is currently set to mid AugustHowever, this is still subject to change. Another statement was made regarding MSFS Sim Update 10, which is set to bring some major fixes to our simulators in August as well. The team is slowly starting to investigate some of the new features that Asobo brings with this update, such as weather radar. Sim Update 10 will also fix the “scale flashing” that some users have been experiencing on the 737-700 so far.

Last but not least, Randazzo announced an update for the 737-700. The update resolves several issues and bugs in different aspects of the level, and the changelog can be found below. When the 737-600 is released, PMDG expects another update -700 to add the new LNAV module to this aircraft as well.
