As of 01/2018, an initial implementation of the MFD is available on git/next from the Debug Menu->FG1000.  It includes a native [[Canvas]]-based surround using an SVG file, Engine Information System (EIS), page group selection using the FMS control, plus a selection of pages (see below).

As of 02/2018, an initial implementation of the MFD is available on git/next.  It can be displayed as a GUI window under Debug-FG1000 or added to an aircraft with the GDU-1045 model as part of a 3D cockpit.  It is integrated with the [[Route Manager|route manager]], GPS and the generic NAV/COM radios.  It displays engine information from a single piston engine, and can be used as an EFB.

There's still a huge number of pages to write, and the pages around route planning will likely be particularly challenging, but it should be far faster now these blocks are in place.  As of 02/2018, the PFD page is in the process of being created using artwork created by Michat and www2 <ref>https://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=32764&p=327340#p327340</ref>.  If anyone is interested in creating a specific page, please also get in touch with Stuart.  The various ''Nearest... and ...Information'' pages should be quite easy to do based on the pages that have been written already.  See the Design Notes for details.

It is now pretty usable as a moving map and EFB, though Stuart is still planning to integrate the [[Route Manager|route manager]].
