    PMDG Latest Update on DC-6 For MSFS 2020

    A few moments ago, we issued a new update for the PMDG DC-6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This update, like the previous updates, is available to you via the PMDG Operations Center.

    This update is focused on some improvements to performance and enhancements in usability based upon feedback from users now that the product is in such wide operation.


    • Automated Flight Engineer's audio now has his own volume channel tied to the Aircraft Miscellaneous slider
    • A/C inverter logic and certain A/C powered instruments reworked/remodeled/corrected
    • Improved hardware support
    • Fit-and-finish items around the virtual cockpit
    • Visual tidying of the cabin and exterior models
