World of Aircraft : Glider Simulator


Recommended Posts

Will it be possible to set up the weather and the intensity of thermals? Or will there only be nice weather and a fixed thermal? Would be great, if there could be more clouds or even rain effects, but I think rain will be too much for this "simple sim". But the intensity of thermals would be needed to accompany the different flying skills of your customers.

You never even get the Condor weather and flight physics not even from Condor 1. There's not even an LS8 or anybody flying 600km with an ask21. Do you have any idea about gliding?

Please note this project was earlier shown under the preliminary title VFR Simulator.   World of Aircraft is a series of stand-alone flight simulation products that all focus on a specific p

I'm not sure what you are getting at Mr Kawa. Is being able to fly 600 km in an Ask a requirement? And having an LS8 also? You have not seen the product in any way but you have already made up your mi

There will be some different winds (I found out how hard it is to do an airtow with some crosswind) but we will stick to nice summer weather. How thermals will be done is being discussed. 

 

Ok. As a possible customer of the sim, I would be happy to increase thermals for the beginning and make it less strong, when I will be more skilled to make it more difficult to stay in the air.

How many of the airfields in the sim's 50km x 50km area will be modelled? Will the sim have VFR flight planning facility?

At 50 km range isn't it pretty visual by naked eye? Why would anyone want to specifically plan a flight within 50 km? (Not insisting on anything, just curios 🙂 )

Indeed yes. But if one would fly a specific route within the map, a flight-planning option would be a helpful (albeit not required) tool... 😊

Two airports, so a flight planner is not really needed. This is really a very basic flight simulator, not in any way intended to compere with P3D or X-Plane. Reading your posts most likely not a product for you.

Actually, it may be exactly the sort of thing I am looking for.

 

Right now, in order to be perceived as covering all the bases the sim community expects to be covered, each of the "main" platforms makes significant compromises as to content, whether that be terrain detail, quality of default aircraft, environment, ATC, etc etc. As a long-time casual simmer, I'm still looking for a simulation experience that allows me to maximize the 1 to 2 hours a week (and sometimes less) I have to devote to this hobby. I've moved over to XP11 after abandoning FSX and after having flirted with FSW, and while XP11 a good sim in its vanilla state, it still needs a lot of add-on's to be seamlessly entertaining (and even then.. 😕).

 

The World of Aircraft modules, based on the scenery and default aircraft that are being previewed in this thread, seem to promise the "all-in" experience I've been looking for. Moreover, way back in my Aerosoft order history will be all the Aerosoft scenery and aircraft I purchased for FSX. One of the reasons I am increasingly interested in World of Aircraft is because it is an Aerosoft creation.

Keep in mind that this as alpha en most things are likely to change. Also keep in mind this is NOT intended a competitor to FSX. P3D or X-Plane but a low cost (under $25) stand-alone simulator. The flight model etc are pretty high end though!

For those interested, here's a link to an upcoming FAA safety program webinar on glider flight planning, finding thermals and competition prep by Sebastian Kowa, world renowned soaring pilot. He's only been world champion soaring pilot a mere 22 times and currently ranked #1 in the world, so chances are good any of us could learn something from him! It's at 0100 UTC on Wednesday, February 7. Do check the site to make your own time zone conversions as the advertised date is during "normal" hours on Tuesday February 5 for Continental US viewers.
