Smiths FMC Guide?
« on: February 06, 2010, 10:06:47 AM »
Can someone recommend which one of these is best to get.   I am building my pit based on the NG using Sim-Avionics (and possibly the pmdg 737 for fsx when it is released eventually).    There is one book that says it covers all of the 737 series and has updates for the NG.   There is another that is all NG.   Which one is best to get?

Thank you,
Scott

Not sure which book you are refering to but I would choose the NG dedicated one.
I know that he PMDG manual has a nice section for the FMC.
Will look deeper, because I need it too.

I have Bill Bulfer's FMC guide. This is for the Smiths unit. Very good book written by someone who uses the unit in real life.

Bob, there are two that I saw.  One seems to be for the NG only version and one says it is for all 737s and has updates for the NG.   I was going to just buy the NG version unless there is something I would be missing by not having the other.  Which one do you have?

If you are building the NG and that is all you are going to fly the NG one is what you need. The only differences are in the software of the FMC where the older aircraft do not have the capability to do certain things.
