Just completed the first short flight with the Threshold 737-800NG. Nice aircraft and GREAT PRICE ...FREE. The package comes with the -600, -700, -800, and -900

It seems a little more refined than the Zibo 737, call it Zibo 2.0 I guess. The integrated tablet checklist is nice.
They keep stressing this is an initial release and they plan to iron some things out, but I haven’t seen anything mission critical that is missing or buggy.

I gave up on the Zibo a long time ago.
I have made a couple flights with the -800 and -600 and am impressed. I did have an issue with the aircraft holding glide slope but as you said, not critical. I plan on checking the forum to see if this is a issue.

Interesting, it kicked off the autopilot on me a couple of times when I was trying to capture an ILS approach. I am sure it is pilot error, I just have to dig a little deeper into the systems. I think it had something to do with my airspeed and configuration not being exactly what it wanted.

I made several flights over the last two days and had no issues.

I have made quite a few flights these past few weeks with the Threshold Boeing 737NG aircraft and am very pleased with them. Prior to their release I was using their previous 737-900, which was "ok" but had issues. I gave up on the Zibo a long time ago, and the default 737 was pretty bad. So now I can get back into some serious 737 passenger flying.
