A new benchmark in innovation

For those of us who transverse the globe in our virtual jetliners, PMDG needs little introduction. Over the years the company has established a solid reputation for developing ultra-realistic airliners while introducing new technologies that have set a benchmark for innovation. Its latest product, the PMDG 747-8 Queen of the Skies II, was released as an expansion to the 747-400V3 base pack (reviewed in Issue 109) and includes both the freighter and the passenger versions.
