Adding The MAX To The Airframe/Aircraft Type

Can you please add the 737 MAX 8 as a choice to select when picking our Airframe in the Aircraft Type pull down column.

There are a number of choices for this but I’d like to recommend the one that is used at Flightradar24 and at many airline carriers, that being the abbreviation “B738M”.

With the eventual release by PMDG of the MAX in the near future, along with models available now, this is a glaring omission of a very popular aircraft with carriers world wide and they will only increase in numbers with each passing year.

I apologize if this feature has been asked for in the past, but I did not see any in the recent past. If they have been, then consider this a little reminder to please add this aircraft asap!

Oops, I just realized that this thread should have been posted in the Aircraft Profiles forum. Feel free to move it there if you want!

PMDG wont realse that, but iFlyjets has one that has come pretty far in dev for P3DV5

Emanuel from his 737NG Driver You Tube channel, spoke about and even showed a model of the MAX 8 that was scheduled to be released in the future by PMDG, I know because I saw it myself when the 700 was first showcased before its release.

When it is released is not known yet, but it will be when PMDG feels it’s time to do so!

Dont be so optimistic :slight_smile: Before any other, when current 737 product line will be finished (-900), there are 777 and 747 on schedule. So, if, max will be not earlier than in 3 years .)

wondering, how someone could show MAX model from pmdg, as this does not exists at all .

Go watch the videos by 737NG Driver at You Tube. He is a REAL life 737 pilot for Ryanair and he works with PMDG in helping them get all the systems correct for the entire line of 737’s. He has been working with them since the beginning of the project. He has also created over 60 tutorials for the aircraft and the systems.

In his debut of the 737-700, when it went live, he showed in the program where they had the 737 parked. Right next to where the 700 was is a new 737 MAX 8, which he talks about and that it will be released later on in the cycle of the whole line of 737’s by PMDG.

They’ve released the 700, the 600 and now the 800. I bet the MAX 8 will be released by no latter then early 2023!

And this is nice example, how rumour arise :smiley:

And you’re a perfect example of someone who talks a lot, but doesn’t really know much! :grinning:

Obviously, I’m wasting my time because you didn’t check out his channel or you’d have seen what I alluded to.

No sense in me responding anymore to this topic, so thanks for your interest and have a nice day!

So, definitevly confirmed. MAX will not be at beginning of 2023 (as it was never planned) It was just fan fiction.

Before MAX there will be release of 777, so MAX will be at the end of 2023 at the earliest.

You confirmed nothing!

It is more then just planned my friend:

Make sure to read the comments in the thread at YT where this video is located!

From the CEO of PMDG “There are too many variables at the moment to make a guess (When the MAX 8 will be available for purchase). The only thing Randazzo can say for sure is that the MAX will release “somewhere” between the end of the development of the 737 NG and the beginning of the development of the next Boeing after the 747.”

Now it might not come out early in 2023, but it’s not only coming, you can see the Easter egg that I referred to in my response to your initial incorrect statement in the above link!

Oh and then there’s this, iFLY is coming out with their version of the MAX 8, so even if the PMDG version is delayed, there’s this iFLY product coming as well:

First you said the PMDG version didn’t even exist.
You can see it in the video I linked to above.

Then you said above it wouldn’t be available for 3 years.
Wrong again!
Now your trying to cover your butt with, “oh it will be out at the end of 2023”!

True, it won’t come out before the end of 2022, but it will be available in 2023.

And finally just to show you how wrong you continue to be,
SimBrief just added the MAX 8 ( B38M - B737 MAX 8) to the database for flight planning.
It’s been added just below the B738-800 on the drop down Airframe menu on the Aircraft Type section.

So in short, Navigraph/SimBrief added what I and others here requested which prompted my writing of this original post in the first place, and it is now part of the database as they know that the MAX 8 will be available in due time. I already fly one in X-Plane 11 which is a Freeware custom MAX 8 model which is based on the Zibo version.

Here is a link for the MAX website:

I know I said earlier that I wouldn’t respond to anymore of your posts, but you are SO WRONG about this that I had to make clear for others who read this thread that the MAX is indeed planned for sale by not just PMDG, but now through iFLY as well!

I will post links about it here when the release date for either product is announced.

And a BIG Thank You to Navigraph/SimBrief for adding the MAX 8 to the database so I can flight plan for the MAX 8 version I fly in X-Plane 11, I really appreciate it! :sunglasses:
