Please do feel free to contact me at nick@flyaoamedia.com with any questions or comments. I am targeting a career in commercial aviation and would be grateful to hear from you.

Nick Collett, UK.

Now on with the show:

There is a core belief we have here at Angle of Attack: an external model is useless without the ‘real deal’ on the inside. Unfortunately, there is a lot of eye candy out there in the FS World, but not a lot of outstanding cockpits that are not only modeled to the gills, but almost 100% functional.

Although Nick’s 737NGX Walk-Around shows the level of detail PMDG goes to with their external models, honestly, that’s not where their products TRULY shine. We know it’s awesome, but wait until you watch this video of the 737NGX Virtual Cockpit.

The depth of systems detail PMDG puts into their aircraft is truly impressive as current PMDG owners know, but this is the latest and greatest from PMDG. It’s a whole new ballgame now. As you’ll see, the cockpit, controls, visuals, systems, and everything else to accompany it has set the bar very high for future virtual airliners.

And we haven’t even got into the air yet!

In this video Nick will take you through yet another casual look at what PMDG is offering. Nothing too complex here, no real formal training like what you’ll get with our 737 Training videos, but simply initial thoughts and reactions to how the real aircraft operates.

All that said, this is a partner video to Nick’s 737NGX Walk-Around, and was specifically made at the same time to give a complete overlook of the aircraft.

Consider this Angle of Attack’s delivery inspection.

Nick also wanted to leave this disclaimer, because it is not the type of video we generally produce:

  • I made this video to show the aircraft to another member of the AOA team who is entitled to the wide beta but has had computer troubles and is not yet able to use it. It was intended to show him the aircraft so that he could get an idea of the equipment simulated. It was therefore entirely off the cuff, unscripted and not intended to be instructional in any way.
  • This video therefore does not reflect the standard of our final training product. It is rough, and my informal, off the cuff explanations may at times be inaccurate.
    Our final product is meticulously scripted and structured so as to provide the best learning experience.
  • This video was intended solely to put across my initial thoughts and a quick look at the incredible depth to which PMDG have simulated the 737NG.

We hope you enjoyed this candid look at the beautiful rendition of the 737NG’s Cockpit.

    Going to watch it for the second time now. I really liked Nick’s thorough description of the systems. He seems to have a very wide knowledge of the 737. In Nick’s exterior view thoughts video, he also showed to know every corner of the plane. You say that those wasn’t supposed to teach anyone about the aircraft, but I imagine how would it be if they were indeed intended to be educational.

    Can’t wait to have that plane on my PC and, of course, your training package for the NGX too, which I intend to get on day one. I bought the MD-11 package a few weeks ago and loved it.

    • Anonymous

      Honestly, I think Nick’s knowledge of the NG (and classic, for that matter) is almost as impressive as the NGX. Very cool stuff.

    What system specs is Nick running? seems to be able to run FSX very well with minimal stutter.

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      Nick actually doesn’t have a crazy system. His specs are listed as: i7 920 @ 4GHz, GTX 480, 6GB Corsair 7-7-7-20, 300GB WD Velociraptor, Corsair HX850W.

      From what I’ve noticed, the big kicker here is simply the care PMDG took with their program. This thing has an incredibly reasonable framerate for the detail.

      I want to really spotlight that too. That’ll come up here in a week or so.

      • Andreas

        Hi Chris does Nick install FSX on the same HD as the OS?

        • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

          From what I understand it’s on a separate drive, which is against my recommendation. You’ll have to let him chime in though.

    This is a real multi-million dollar commercial aircraft, that we can own and fly anywhere in the world, right from our computer.
    It is unbelievable how far PMDG has taken this passion.

  • Fritz Essono

    Great vid guys.

    A little detail to check with PMDG devs… Posteed on their forum also.
    It’s about the Fuel Crossfeed Selector.
    In the 73 Classics the selector rotates clockwise to open, and then counter-clockwise to close…
    I doubt this have changed with the NGs. But maybe I’m wrong…

  • 737NGX_future_owner

    I really love the real world imperfections PMDG made in the cockpit, such as the fingerprints on the displays. I can’t wait for this one to come out!

    Excellent video of the virtual cockpit, ive purchased a number of 737 products from various companies and there are none that come anywhere near the quality and realism of this one, this plane will definately be the closest thing to actually flying the real plane and I look forward even more to purchasing it upon release!

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      It’s quite incredible, right? I felt like a broken record when I kept telling people this. It’s nice that everyone is starting to see that. I guess all it really took is showing the product intimately that did it.

    Thanks for uploading this amazing video! =D

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      The virtual cabin is shown in the walk around. I’m sure this selection also has to do with weights as well, among other factors.

  • signmanbob

    I also want to give mention here to Nick. What a great person to have on the AoA team!
    The knowledge of the 737NG that he displays here on this video, really gets me excited about what is coming up for the AoA 737NGX program.
    All of the AoA programs have been excellent in all aspects, but I recognize that Chris Palmer has always been obsessed with finding ways to make them even better.
    It is obvious that finding Nick, and recognizing his talent, was a result of that ever present obsession.
    I have to say that as amazing as this PMDG 737NGX is, and as much as I’m looking forward to owning it, I am looking forward equally as much to the new AoA 737NGX production that will accompany it.
    Never before, has a simulation for home PC reflected this kind of reality. Never before has such a complete instructional program been offered for a home PC simulation.
    This is history in the making.
    It will certainly be the sweet icing on the cake, and a real foundation to the extreme PMDG 737NGX experience, to be able to know the systems, routines and proceedures, to flying this bird in a similar manner as the professionals.
    The only limitation will be my humble and limited ability to absorb it all.

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      Hey Bob,
      Very kind words indeed, and very much appreciate by our whole team. Nick is a true asset. He shows his true colors time and time again, and we recognize his talent.

      We’re very excited about our products to come for this aircraft. We think we’re doing something quite special in not only teaching the aircraft in the way we’ve become known for, but also reacting to community feedback and giving you guys the level of detail you desire.

      That means quite an extensive list of things to do, but it also means the best training we’ll produce to date. We’re excited as well!

      • signmanbob

        Throttle on, my friend.

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Nick Collett

      Thanks, that really means a lot! I see real potential for career progression here, so rest assured that I’m putting my all into it and won’t accept anything less.

  • Raymond Kingsley

    Nick doesn’t have to make any apologies for the video(s): they are fantastic and clearly show the amazing standard and overall quality of this PMDG plane.

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      Amen to that. It’s not such an apology as it is a disclaimer that our actual products are produced to a much higher level. That’s all he was getting at.

      It will for sure be in our product, and often. Not sure how in depth we’ll go publicly that way, but we may show a few things.

        Expect a clear explanation of ANP/RNP, yes. We will be shooting at least one RNAV approach.

Well i’m very impressed with the video and looking forward to the new release of the 737NGX early next month that is when it’s completed.Chris i would like to ask you a question if i may? I see he was looking around the COCKPIT so easily just wondering i don’t think he was using a “HAT SWITCH” was he…..Could you please tell me what he was using or did he have something on his head so he could look around the COCKPIT…Looking forward in your reply because i really want one of those Thanking you regards Romeo…

  • steve cummings

    Hi Nick/Chris
    Am new on here, just loving what you are doing, fascinating. Have a quick question. I really find it hard to find the time to go through written tutorials. Would your training vids speed up the process at all (I can see it may be a quicker way to learn) and also how can you switch from watching the vids to trying it in the real sim, coz if you watch the whole vid you will have forgotten stuff at the start! Is it possible to run the vid in a window and pause it while you switch to the sim? Sorry if this has been posted before,
    Regards
    Steve

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      Steve,
      It’s for this reason I founded AOA over 5 years ago! I was fed up with all the manuals that told you nothing, and the non-experienced flight simmers that didn’t know what they were talking about. I wanted answers, and I wanted those answers to be visual. So yes, it absolutely speeds up the process but it also makes the process entertaining, complete, and fulfilling.

      A way to ‘follow along’ is to play the video say on an iPad or another device along side the sim. Technically you could have the sim and a video in windowed mode, but it’s best to get the sim full screen and have our videos on another device or TV.

      Hope that answers some questions! Sounds like you came to the right place ;) Sign up for Aviator90 (it’s free) and see what it’s all about.

  • Brad Rich

    Does the 737NGX simulate RNP approaches?

    • http://www.flyaoamedia.com Chris Palmer

      From what I understand they are simulated to a certain extent, but the issues is that generally it’s individual airlines that control their approach data. Not sure what PMDG can/will/is doing about that.

    Congratulations about your videos and training stuff avaliable clear and precise. Concerning the PMDG 737NGX cockpit that’s the first time I see a running 100 percent one. The FMC seems to use Navigraph last AIRAC data. Does the PMDG have a weather radar display ?
    I am waiting for your 737NGX videos and the plane from PMDG. I think my favourite plane iFLY 737NG completly out of order in front of such a plane.

    I have finally managed to see the video after previous attempts ended in stuttering and stopping. Now that I have seen it I can only say, “breath-taking”, and even this is an understatement. This video has to be seen to be believed!
    Everything about it is so impressive that I feel I must buy the training video, even though I am virtually deaf and have tremendous trouble trying to understand the narration. It is so good that I will enrol for the training and try and sort out my problem after enrolling. I will even try and subtitle the video by begging a relative to aid me. This training is a must! The cockpit, etc., is so realistic that, together with Nick’s thoughts and narration, it feels as if one is on the flight deck in reality.
    Congratulations to both of you, Chris and Nick, for bringing this video to us.
    I, for one, am looking forward to seeing and learning more.

    I hate to say it, but this aircraft is one of the worst fps hogs I’ve ever owned. If they had the guts to have a policy like Flight1′s, I would be done with it. This is with a new sandy, set up only for FSX. If I only flew default scenery and litttle to no ai than it would not be the major issue it is. I’m not willing to overclock to that level to be happy with it.

      Well John, there is definitly something wrong with your setup. I have a sandy bridge, use REX, UT, nl2004, and I get (sliders all to the right) 25/35 fps on the ground in a heavy ad on environment (schiphol) and 40-50 in the air. May be you have a slow HD or old RAM?

    Hi Nick, great job on the video, my question to you is, how can I turn on the weather radar, I found the weather panel but the bottoms just dont seem to work? why is that? something wrong with my pmdg?

    • Tarik

      PMDG did not want to simulate the weather radar. This is because FSX
      hrad coding makes it so that precipitation AND clouds show up, instead
      of precipitation only. PMDG, the seekers of realism decided that it was
      best not to have the radar at all rather than having an inaccurate one

        I hear that with the new ActiveSky that is about to come out, that this could become a reality finally.

  • Dale J F

    As an aspiring airline pilot, realism is very important and only the best will do. But judging from Nicks video, I can certainly say there is no worries on compromises in realism. I don’t have the pmdg 737 yet, because, first I want to finish the aviator 90 and go through the aviator pro training. But I can’t wait.

    Many, many thanks for these videos Nick. They’ve helped me decide to purchase PMDG 737NGX and I will sign up for the 737 Training tomorrow.

      Go there for starters! Then, make sure you don’t have light bloom on, and your water is set to Low 2.X. That should help out a TON.

    I also want to give mention here to Nick. What a great person to have on the AoA team!
    The knowledge of the 737NG that he displays here on this video, really gets me excited about what is coming up for the AoA 737NGX program.
    All of the AoA programs have been excellent in all aspects, but I recognize that Chris Palmer has always been obsessed with finding ways to make them even better.
    It is obvious that finding Nick, and recognizing his talent, was a result of that ever present obsession.
    I have to say that as amazing as this PMDG 737NGX is, and as much as I’m looking forward to owning it, I am looking forward equally as much to the new AoA 737NGX production that will accompany it.
    Never before, has a simulation for home PC reflected this kind of reality. Never before has such a complete instructional program been offered for a home PC simulation.
    This is history in the making.
    It will certainly be the sweet icing on the cake, and a real foundation to the extreme PMDG 737NGX experience, to be able to know the systems, routines and proceedures, to flying this bird in a similar manner as the professionals.
    The only limitation will be my humble and limited ability to absorb it all.

    Hey Bob,
    Very kind words indeed, and very much appreciate by our whole team. Nick is a true asset. He shows his true colors time and time again, and we recognize his talent.

    We’re very excited about our products to come for this aircraft. We think we’re doing something quite special in not only teaching the aircraft in the way we’ve become known for, but also reacting to community feedback and giving you guys the level of detail you desire.

    That means quite an extensive list of things to do, but it also means the best training we’ll produce to date. We’re excited as well!

    Thanks, that really means a lot! I see real potential for career progression here, so rest assured that I’m putting my all into it and won’t accept anything less.

    It looks to me like Chris is putting together the “A” Team for AoA.
    These videos have been spectacular. The casual naration is perfect for this type of intro to the NGX. It is like you are taking us up for a flight and just casually talking about the cockpit and your impressions.
    Thank you all so much.
