Editorial

The old Boeing 737-600 is an aircraft that I always had a lot of time for, as it adds a nice and unique change to a line of aircraft that all feel particularly similar. This is a short-to-medium range aircraft that is based on the real 747-600, with plenty of features being included. I was immediately impressed at the detail on the liveries as well as the overall precision within the cockpit – but how does it manage itself in the air? Is this a mod worth having if you are a real Boeing lover?

The Design

Immediately, you can notice the hard work that has gone into making this version of the 737-600 look the best that it possibly can. It takes a lot of work and commitment to get a model to look this good and with the help of GMax they have done just that. This was designed in GMax and then improved, changed and edited by Brian Selb to make it run fully with FSX. Many changes were included to upgrade and modify the livery and the overall design to fit with the more modern standards that we are used to seeing.

However, this really does help to change up the overall feeling of this aircraft as the liveries are a big part in it. What does change as well, though, is the improvement of the 737 analogue panel by Marco Spada. This is another nice design feature that also positively impacts on the performance side of things, offering you a new panel set that looks great but gives you lots of nice features to manage your way through the flight.

The extra liveries included look great and make it much more varied, too, with Dreamliner, SAS and Westjet all managed perfectly here to give you a fair and honest recreation of some big liveries.

The Performance

As an aircraft which is well-renowned for its power and its presence, the excellent Boeing 737-600 is well represented here. I was immediately quite impressed with how authentic it felt with everything from the CFM-56-3v4 sound set adding something new and exciting to the performance as well. Now I could hear what was going on as much as see it, helping me to calibrate and manage my aircraft in the correct manner moving forward.

The extra work that went into many factors of this including the 2D panel (the lack of VC was a bummer) ensures that you should feel nice and comfortable at the helm of this aircraft. It’s easy enough to fly and get the hang of but it also feels very authentic, close to the real thing.

I was very happy with how this managed itself and the overall layout and performance of the mod. If you are like me and hold the 737-600 in high regard then this might just be worth taking the time to check out and enjoy fully.

Why you make aircraft without virtual cockpit?! Without cockpit an airplane is only a toy! It isn't aircraft in a simulator program!
