The MD-80 series is a mid-size, medium-range airliner that was introduced in 1980. The design was the second generation of the DC-9 with two rear fuselage-mounted turbofan engines, small, highly efficient wings, and a T-tail. The aircraft has distinctive 5-abreast seating in coach class. The aircraft series was designed for frequent, short-haul flights for 130 to 172 passengers depending on plane version and seating arrangement.
The development of MD-80 series began in the 1970s as a growth version of the DC-9 Series 50. Availability of new Pratt & Whitney JT8D higher bypass engines drove early studies including designs known as Series 55, Series 50 (Re-fanned Super Stretch), and Series 60. The design effort focused on the Series 55 in August 1977. With the projected entry into service in 1980, the design was marketed as the "DC-9 Series 80". Swissair launched the Series 80 in October 1977 with an order for 15 plus an option for five. The initial Series 80 first flew October 19, 1979.It entered service in 1980. Originally it was certified as a version of the DC-9, but was changed to MD-80 in July 1983, as a marketing move. The MD-80's production ended in 1999.

"The Virtual Cockpit is fantastic, there are a lot of 3D knobs and switches, and almost everything is clickable and does something, which I think a lot of simmers would be concerned about if they didn't have an actual function. There is room for improvement by making the gauges looks more accurate but everything is crisp and very easy to read. I had no trouble reading or clicking anything in the Virtual Cockpit." - Avsim

Great software. If you can spare the money it'll make your simming that much more realistic and useful. Great liveries and installer comes with.
I have always liked the MD-80 , but they always have it in international liverys never domestic airlines.
