Description737 NG: 600 / 700
is an add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004
. It contains two aircraft, the Boeing 737-600 Next Generation and the Boeing 737-700 Next Generation. Each plane installs in three forms, a 2D cockpit only form, a virtual cockpit form, and a virtual cockpit and cabin form.
There are five liveries for the 737-600 and seventeen liveries for the 737-700, five of these show the planes in the developer's own livery while the remainder are of commercial airlines. Several of the 737-700 aircraft feature external stairs which the player can deploy by a keyboard command, the developers have utilised the flight simulator's command to raise & lower Concorde's nose for this feature.
Virtually all of the switches in the 2D cockpit are operational. There are additional buttons on the 'dashboard' to give the player quick access to the throttle console, the overhead panel, the radio console, the main panel, the flight management computer, and two alternate views - the approach view and the landing view. The latter alternate views are designed to give the player a true pilot's perspective when looking through the front window.
The flight management computer is fully working allowing the player to enter route and destination information, for added realism the player can also enter details like the plane's weight and target costs so that the flight management system can optimise the flight for maximum economy. The database behind the flight management computer is Richard Stefan
's AIRAC navdata cycle database system. An inertial reference system (IRS) is not included in this simulation.
This product adds a PMDG menu to Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004's
menu bar. This menu which gives access to customisation options. From here the player can change the action keys associated with commands, access the system failure menu to enable failure of multiple or specific systems, change the refresh rate of the LCD's on the instrument panel, or customise the aircraft's instrumentation to match that of a real world airline.
