!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. This topic hasn't been raised in some time.  To be quite frank - I would buy a NavDataPro annual account if you supported SimBrief. I like LIDO charts better than Jeppesen.  But I can't consider it without.    Simbrief is the best flight planner in my opinion, Derek Mayer is one of the nicest most helpful guys I have come across in Flight simming emailI am sure it would be very easy.  Dudley

  2. You didn't mention the video card, it looks like a MSI 1080.  Being more of an X-plane user just now.  I find that it doesn't push my processor very much, it is getting more GPU intensive ( I have a 1080TI, I have 4k monitor ).  However that isn't maxed out either.  I am waiting until further sim upgrades to arrive to know what to upgrade. I have a i7 4790 running at 4.6Ghz, which handles it all pretty well.

    Depends on how much code is new. It's NOT an update to 64 bits, but much of the code has fully been rewritten and will provide new 32 bot versions as well. For example all code for electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, APU etc etc is fully new, nothing of the old left. Also the MCDU is 50% redone to include many new features (it is the most complete A320 MCDU that will be available on release, bar none).

    I do like the sound of this. It was good before.

    At this point, I don't see a single Airbus aircraft Aerosoft could realistically do, and as it has been said the Boeing market is covered. I would agree with others that an E-Jet series would be a good decision.

    They could build any of them, and they would sell. The A350 and A380 have another layer of complexity, the A340 is going the way of the dodo so not such a great seller perhaps.  The newer ones would take an extended period to develop, if they  can get good flight info on them.  We are more likely to see 'Neo' addons for what we already have ( or will have ).  If for arguments sake Aerosoft could get info on the A350 sufficient to model one, then my best estimate on completing it would be around 2020, they have to support development till then, far from cheap.  They have to have some confidence in the sim platform and market, in what is the far future to accountants. Look what has happened to simming since Aerosoft started the A330 project, who would have predicted that? The best question to ask yourself is, which aircraft would I invest €50k in ( not an accurate figure ) and come away with a profit?  I don't know what I would do.

    I would like to see that Aerosoft buys the PMDG and Boeing licenses for the MD11X, re-compiles the DLLs and brings it our for P3D V3/V4 :)

    Buying a product like this is fraught. Look at at LM and Dovetail, LM got a lot of the Aces team, Dovetail didn't.   Don't know if you watch Great British Bake-off, C4 bought it for £27m, all the people in it wandered away.  They were left with a soggy bottom.   The real value is in the people and the team, Aerosoft have a great team and have produced some real winners.  They aren't afraid to show what they are doing, because nobody could copy it if they wanted to. Same applies to PMDG, superb product, almost impossible to copy. So a PMDG takeover is never going to happen. It would make more sense to headhunt the team, and create new products.

    Besides, it's also fun reading.

    We aim to please.  You have been pretty clear on the running order for this year, even numbering it for us. New sims are forefront, obviously, if you've nothing to sell to a quickly migrating market, people will be saying 'do you remember Aerosoft?' fondly.  The identity of the 'mystery' airliner is a real attention getter, because we all have a plane we would like to have in the hanger.  Can you say if it is a 'classic' or a current model?   Thank goodness, we have left the doldrums that flight simming was in when MS left,  LM have apparently been working on V4 for 8yrs, since they acquired the license, It's all very exciting, and there will be much more to pore over in months and years to come.

    Okay, I see. But since a different company currently develops the Boeing 787: What distinguishes the A350/380 cockpits from the 787 cockpit that makes the development of the 787 more feasible? I ask because the 787 cockpit seems pretty complex and full of new technology as well.


    In any case, I would be glad if you developed the A320NEO as you A3XX project. But, of course, I would be more enthusiastic about the A380 - even if I know now that it's very hard to do and would take a lot of development time and support from Airbus. ;)

    I think it is just easier to get info out of Boeing.  It is one company, Airbus is a many headed hydra, and getting decisions out of them could be more difficult.

  8. I don't think an A340 is likely, Aerosoft will be releasing an excellent A330 and this will fill a particular space in simmer's hangers. I don't doubt that  an A340 is a lot more feasible than an A350, With huge ETOPS ratings available for twinjets now, the day of the 4 engine jet is severely numbered.  There is virtually nowhere on earth that can't be reached with a two engine configuration.  To cut a long story short, an A340 is not a viable product in Aerosoft's eyes, I think it would take some time to recoup costs and make any profit.   I am sure that Aerosoft would love to produce an A350 or A380, but it isn't practical with their current information to produce a quality simulation. If you have any clout at Airbus, get them to send some info to Mathijs.  I think something entirely new, like the C919 is possible ( massive untapped market in China ) , But with more 64bit sims than you can shake a stick at appearing like a rash, I should think everybody's development plans are on the back-burner for now.
