The Boeing 737 Next Generation or Boeing 737NG, is the name given to the −600/-700/-800/-900 series of the Boeing 737 aircraft. Its direct competitor is the Airbus A320 Family.

As of FlightGear 2.10.0, the various NG variants are combined into a single directory, with shared cockpits, instruments and engines. -ER variants do not exist at present, but are planned.

Active Development Areas

  • Porting the '3D' PFD from 777 - fortunately it's very similar to the 777
  • Creating a stable AP, including autobrake, autospoiler and other automatic modes (auto-slates, flap load relief)
  • Creating a working FMC and CDU

Future Development / Help Wanted

  • Overhauling the warning / caution systems
  • Reworked instrument panel textures and meshes for knobs / buttons / switches
