  1. seeing the speed and attitude when outside view

    Hi Martin, you could use the Shift+Z combination to enable the default FS indication bar (the one where you can also see your framerate). It contains speed and altitude.

    It absolutely is! We are not removing any old feature, we are only adding new ones!
  3. Enjoyment or Frustration?

    Hi, regarding your suggestion to start off by disabling many features: Did you try to use our virtual copilot as it is used in the Step by Step guide? He takes away most of your work and really leaves you pretty much with the basics like programming the FMGS and Autopilot (which is explained in detail in the tutorial, just in case you didn't see it yet).

    Not anylonger
  5. Dear Harvey, we do not plan to include any kind of emergency simulation. Solving your present problem is possible in the current Airbusses however. Since there is no RAT modelled you need another source of hydraulic power. Just turn on the electric hydraulic pump and you'll have controls again. Not 100% as in the real deal, but I believe this is fairly what you were asking for.

    Greetings, this is not planned at the moment, sorry. Our reference aircraft did not have one and to be honest we do not really see the need for one. The A330 is not an A320 which you turn around in half an hour which might require brakefans (even then, there are A320s which don't have them!). Even some airlines who do some really quick turnarounds with the A330 (like Lufthansa on their Africa trips) do not have them. If you don't slam into your brakes as if there is no tomorrow you won't really need brake fans. Use your brakes with caution and you won't have many problems. Of course it will! Realistically. Read back some (more) pages and you'll find pictures showing what it'll look like. We don't have a schedule, but I tend to say it's safe to say it won't be 2017. It's also safe to say it has not even been descided yet which expansions might be done in the future, apart from what Mathijs annoucned earlier already.

    Assuming that you fly with someone whos joystick sends even some minor spikes (most joysticks do that) this could become really, really annoying. We'd better not implement this in your own interest. That is pretty likely.

    I didn't say that. The EFB would be unlikely to be used for these options though. That's why we have the third MCDU. Please don't read anything regarding the EFB from my statements. I am currently simply not informed on its status and if a choice has been made yet.

    Actually the best solution (in my eyes) is the one in between: There are tools available which can cut the header and task bar off, so you can run the sim in windowed mode, while it actually fills the whole screen. Google for "Autohotkey FSX fullscreen" and you should find something. I really wouldn't want to live without it anymore. And the best: The autohotkey solution is free of charge!

    As far as I am aware the MCDU keyboard interface will remain the same compared to the present A320 series. So no CTRL+Shift+number The present MCDU uses only Ctrl+number for LSK selection.
  11. Aerosoft Airbus 2018 editions preview

    No, but the A330 got 3 MCDUs, so 2 can be used for, well, "MCDU'ing" while the third will be used for the menus.
  12. The dreaded MCDU!

    Hi, it may feel hard and complex when you first see it, but believe me, once you are used to the way an MCDU operates (be it Boeing, Airbus or Bombardier) you can set it up in 3-5 minutes at maximum. It's bascially always the same: Enter your route, enter the weights, enter the performance data (the latter two can be caculated automatically with one button click in our CRJ!). You should try to go the step ahead and give an MCDU a try. It will initially take you some learning and, assuming you have 2 hours a day for the sim, it might take a week or two until you get into the systems. Once you're into them you will quickly notice how "easy" it is to handle these systems, expecially in a CRJ which is, compared with Airbus and Boeing, a rather simple aircraft. If you don't want to risk "loosing money" on it you could try a freeware one first. I believe there were one or two good freeware MCDUs available on the internet. Somebody else may be able to give you good guidance here as I'm not too much into the freeware aircrafts due to my job here. The basic operating principles of FMCs is always the same, only the layout may differ, so you will get the idea with it.
  13. Discussion about the next Aerosoft Airliner Product after 2018

    The question is not if they would license it, but how much they'd ask for such a license. Keep in mind this is still a small market and margins are small already.

    Fully correct. However keep in mind that this is just your *plan* which is submitted to ATC. You won't start to climb/descend on your own without ATC clearance. In many cases these restriction are simply filed to keep some legal requirements for the airways in use, in actual flight however ATC often deviates from those and simply keeps you up high while you maybe should descend according to your flightplan.
  15. 777 PMDG Brake Temp

    Hi, diese Meldung weißt darauf hin, dass deine Bremsen überhitzen. Da hilft nur abwarten, bis diese wieder abgekühlt sind, da sonst einerseits die Bremswirkung rapide abnimmt und andererseits Feuergefahr besteht. Vermutlich machst Du bei deinen Landungen Vollbremsungen, oder? Dadurch werden die Bremsen natürlich sehr stark beansprucht, was zu entsprechender Erhitzung führt. Nutze lieber die Autobrakes auf einem niedrigen Level (2 oder 3 sind die gängigsten, je nach Runwaylänge), das schont die Bremsen und die Brake Temps.
