So far we’ve shown you a look at the exterior and a cockpit overview of the PMDG 737NGX. Now it’s time to show you some of the the systems work in the air.

Keep in mind that what you’re about to see (or have already watched) is by no means the extent of the systems depth of this aircraft. Rather, that would take hours and hours to explain and show which is why we are creating our PMDG 737NGX Training.

What you’ll see in the video is a brief overview of some engine options, autoflight system, autothrottle system, and the biggest chunk on the EGPWS. The video speaks for itself in this respect, so you’ll have to see what’s there.

Again, keep in mind this is simply an overview and look at these systems.

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

  • In this video in particular, I was wrong about the EGPWS being based on the terrain mesh. Rather, it is based on a database of terrain data that PMDG has built into the aircraft. In high fidelity areas like FTX, you’ll notice it almost exactly matches what you see outside like in this video.
  • This video 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 video! It’s quite impressive.
