Title: Avionics Expansion Pack
Post by Caribflyer on Jan 7th, 2018 at 12:22am
With a few 757 operators upgrading the avionics in the 757 (AA, FDX, UPS, Icelandair)
It might be a nice option to offer a paid expansion that gives users the option to have 1 or 2 cockpit display versions. Some time ago another developer did this with their 757 and it was a popular option for those who liked the added realism of flying the right aircraft with the right equipment. Here are the two 757 cockpit versions.

Rockwell Collins 787 style display (UPS and FEDEX will be using these on their 757/767s)

That would be great but I don't know if CS will do this. I can be hopeful and dream! I would pay for that!  ::)

Plus 1, I'd gladly pay for such an option!

Me too for the top one with the old CRT eicas, as those are the most used.

Indeed, the ISS Displays (the displays in the first 2 photos) are the most popular and they are also installed on some 767-300 and 767-200 Freighter models.

Perhaps CaptainSim can do a poll on whether customers would be interested in this?

Would actually help out for the 767 if the -400 is made with it!

I'd also happily pay for such an extension.

Agreed. I would pay for this expansion - especially for the freighter. If they don't do the retrofit cockpit, someone else will - and when that happens the customer base will march over to the other product.

Please do. I would definitely buy this expansion offer

Title: Glass cockpit/Avionics
Post by blake roark on Mar 1st, 2018 at 8:03pm
This could be a payware addition to the 757 III. Would love to see the option of the glass cockpit/avionics package that a few carriers have in their flight deck. I'm certain MANY customers would love to have this option and wouldn't mind even paying for it as i'm sure it would involve a bit of work. For those who agree, please comment!

My airline has the L3 flight deck in our 767s and 757C aircraft. It’s a nice system and would be a nice addition.

I think most of the current operators are using modern avionics just like in the photo above. My airline (biggest 757 operator in europe) being one.

Post by ZS-RES on Jan 16th, 2019 at 8:52pm
+1 Also :) ;)

+1 here too after getting so accustomed to glass cockpits available for other recent additions to the simming world

Title: Re: Avionics Expansion Pack
Post by spreilly on Feb 18th, 2019 at 12:52am
I would definitely pay for an avionics suite in line with the L3. IIRC Delta and a handful of others are still using the classic avionics, but many are moving to the new ones.

Any thoughts on this from CS? This could be applicable for both the 757 and 767

Would love to see this.

Title: Re: Avionics Expansion Pack
Post by Xander975 on Mar 9th, 2020 at 1:12pm
Another +1. While the current flightdeck is alright, It would be lovely to have the retrofit ones too.

Title: Re: Avionics Expansion Pack
Post by Ramosz on Mar 25th, 2020 at 7:45am
This "retrofitted" cockpit option for CS 757 is really needed especially since it has long been available even in the another company 757..

Title: Re: Avionics Expansion Pack
Post by Yakkifly on Apr 10th, 2020 at 7:18pm
+1 Would also love to see this feature implemented into one of the next service packs. Maybe for P3DV5 or even FS2020 if you guys decide to go down that road. But customers would definitely appreciate that extra mile of implementing the new avionics in the future.

Title: CS 757/767 Avionics Expansion
Post by Caribflyer on May 16th, 2020 at 2:53pm
I know that this idea has been suggestion numerous times, but I can't recall if Captain Sim has ever responded as to whether this might be possible in the future.

With the 757 and 767 currently available and growing in popularity I assume, wouldn't it be advantageous to keep the interest in these aircraft growing by offering the upgraded avionics that most and soon all 757/767 will have? I'm sure this may come at a price and it is only reasonable that the extra work involved be compensated.

So far, there are two 757/767 developers who have created this option covering Xplane and FSX/P3D. But I'm sure most of us would like to see this option for the CS models.
