PMDG updates the 737 for MSFS


PMDG updates the 737 for MSFS

PMDG has released its first update for the 737 for MSFS. The first update contains over 1000 file changes and is quite large.

The changelog is below for those who want to take a look at the changes. A big difference is the implementation of the pop-up displays. The update is available through the PMDG Ops Center. The installer is also in your account if that’s easier for you.

It was originally planned that there would be regular bi-weekly updates during the early adopter phase of the 737-700 release, but this was missed for a variety of reasons. Rob says PMDG will move forward “Toggling back and forth between weekly and bi-weekly [updates].” Based on previous schedules set by Rob, the 737-600 should appear for sale very soon. We’ve been promised that the first previews for the smallest of the 737NG fleet will be shown later today.
