Last but not least, PMDG announced that the update of its popular Boeing 737-700 will be delayed until around the middle of next week.

One of the new elements introduced by the update is the ability to display the plane’s screens in separate windows, which was requested a lot and you can see in the screenshot below.

On the other hand, we learn that next week we can get a first look at the upcoming Boeing 737-600, in addition to some information about the EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) tablet that will be included on all developers upcoming aircraft and on the 737 retrofitted .

“PMDG Flight Tablet: We haven’t talked much about this device, but I wanted to let you know that it’s progressing quite well and is well into its testing phase. As mentioned, this tablet is intended to replace the Boeing-inspired EFB found in the PMDG 737 line of products, but we also saw this as an opportunity to make this new tablet a sort of ‘home base’ for all of your PMDG products within make MSFS, so it will also appear in the 747 and 777 product lines. The tablet serves as the base for controlling the various options/configurations in the 737, allowing us to give you a more stylized, modern implementation for things we’ve made
about the text/descriptor delimited FMS for many years.

The tablet will obviously serve as the home for the simBrief integration, as mentioned, and we have a few other hooks here that I don’t want to share just yet because they’re more fun to watch than hear.

In our previous Boeings we have modeled the Boeing EFB very realistically. This real EFB originated in the mid-1990s, when most programmers writing user interface wrappers around software functions today hadn’t even learned not to soil their own diapers, which means it’s an unfriendly, clunky, unforgiving and unwieldy tool to use. This is precisely why real operators have hired highly experienced developers to create entirely new, context-driven, flexible human interfaces to simplify computational processes, smooth workflow, and simplify data entry.

There are a large number of them that can be seen in flight crew videos on the Internet, and some airlines have been bold enough to develop their own.

We bring you our own iteration of this process, designed to give you tremendous consistency when transitioning between the PMDG 737 and 747 and 777, as you will have a single, common layout and functionality from one aircraft to another .

Unlike our previous Boeing-inspired EFB, our tablet will also include a number of other fun features that I can’t share yet.”
