The short body PMDG 737-600 for Microsoft Flight Simulator is now available for purchase and it comes with a very appealing price for folks looking to break into the complex airliner market without spending a lot of cash. Let’s have a look.
Short body, low price
Available for $34.99 USD from the PMDG webstore, PMDG’s latest 737 release follows on the heels of a successful 737-700 release earlier in the year. The 600 variant of the 737 is a shortbody version of Boeing’s successful airliner. It is a lesser used version versus the longer body -700 and -800 variants.
PMDG is selling each variant that they release separately with the 737-700 having been on sale for a few months now and selling for a regular price of $74.99 USD with a small sale price currently on bringing it down to $69.99. The 737-600 is coming in with a spectacularly low price for a high fidelity airliner and is selling for just $34.99.
For that, it appears to come with all of the features of its -700 cousin. Detailed and customized flight model, high resolution textures inside and out, detailed modeling of systems, high quality sounds, and more.
It also is waiting for PMDG’s forthcoming PMDG-EFB (cockpit tablet), weather radar, and high resolution cabin models and landing bay interiors. These features are still expected to land sometime this summer.
If you want to get into airliners in Microsoft Flight Simulator, don’t care which version of 737 you’re flying, and want to spend as little money as possible it looks like the -600 is quite the bargain. Check it out on the PMDG webstore.
