It’s currently only available for PMDG.com customers, with the Marketplace update to follow later. Update 3.00.082 is on its way to the Marketplace and is scheduled to release this Thursday (Nov 30). 


They have also announced the arrival of a new update for the UFT coming early next week, with cleanups and quick fixes. It’s part of their “3 and 1” cycle, where they take three weeks to push major change updates, followed by a week of stability/correction builds. 


The UFT is still not working on Xbox, and they are waiting for guidance from Asobo on how to address it. 


PMDG also warned SimBrief users always to select an airline and flight number for their flight plan, or else it causes the airplane to fail upon importing the flight plan.


PMDG’s product lineup is available on their website, with prices ranging from $34.99 to $69.99.
