Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Aerosoft A330 Professional Preview

Recommended Posts

Like the current Airbus professional series it will have two independent MCDUs. The third MCDU in the pedestal will be used for configuration purpose.

Does it have 2 different FMC or it has got only 1 FMC doubled on 2 displays?

 

Thats a good question.

 

It will have two different MCDUs and a third for settings. As far as your specific question, software wise it has one FCU which feeds all MCDUs, but since nobody ever sees the FCU it really doesn't matter.

 

Best wishes!

I just watched an SAS video with their A330-300E which had an OANS (Onboard Airport Navigation System), Will that be modeled in your version?

 

Hi Jlund,

 

this feature is not planned to be included with the AS A330.

Can we expect the A330 to be compatible with P3D V4.4 (or 4.5 if that version will exist)? I am just wondering because if you need some more months maybe P3D V5 is available - and usually it does not make sense for consumers to update the Sim right away because quite a lot of the addons may not work in a completely new Sim version (I do not mean 4.x to 4.x+1) until patches are released. So I would be kind of relieved knowing the A330 will work with the latest P3D v4 version.

The version of P3D that is current at the release of the AS A330 will be the version supported. As there is no release timeframe yet we do not know which P3D version will be current then. 

 

This could actually mean that the bus would work with previous (v4) versions but it will not be supported by AS.

You say there will be discounts for people the the previous busses, but what if you got the other busses in Steam but want to get the A330 on the website, will we have to pay full price or still have some discount?

If you have the Steam version we are unable to offer any update as we are not the publisher. 
And of course, because there is no 32-bit version of the A330 there will be no discount, only if you already have any of our 64 bit versions will there be a substantial discount.

I never had a problem with updating to a newer v4.x version of P3D. But does this actually mean that it might only be compatible with a possible P3D v5, if this is already out at the A330 release date?? Or is there at least any kind of "guarantee" that it will be at least compatible with the newest P3D v4 version?

Nobody knows, as nobody knows what a version 4.5 or 5.x or whatever will introduce.

I thought maybe the developers could know more, as they often get access to versions of P3D before they are made public.

 

Out of all the flight sim developers I've worked with, Lockheed Martin strictly prohibits the release of ANY and ALL information concerning future versions.  This is why you'll never hear any developers or testers making any statements about future versions.  Not at all surprising given they are a very large defense contractor (who by the way, worked for me on several government contracts back in the day) and that they have a commercial/military training side to P3D.  You won't find any of them even speculating about the future.

 

You know... PMDG is the same way, just a little south of the LM restrictions.  IMHO, it's the right thing to do, but then again I'm also a fan at how open Mathijs is and how terribly hard he works to keep present/future customers informed!  Pluses and minuses for both ways of doing this.

After a quick browse, didnt find any answers (probably didnt look hard enough)

But do we know if this will include the A330-200F? either on release or an expansion?

Really wanting a proper A332F for P3D :)

Upon release, it'll just be the A330-300RR version. However, after initial release, there'll probably be some more models added, but that's a little further down the line.

A330-300 RR. That is it. Nothing more, nothing less. (For now)

After this we'll most likely add more A330 models (more engine types etc).

Since it is understandably taking so long the release of the 330, in order to mitigate the frustration you guys could also plan and release together the 332 version of the aircraft, far most popular on the market than the 333. Or introduce the CFM Leap to the 320 family... we know that there are thecnical barriers to develop it, but if the relation between buyers and sellers were rational we wouldn't be spending money we don´t have for a virtual toy. Try to do it or at least announce it already meanwhile Lockheed thinks about what they want in life..   

 

the possibility of a 332 and the (so far) impossibility for a half way realistic CFM Leap has been discussed and answered several times.

Why announce something you don't know you will/can deliver - just to "please" people that will start to rant about "when" and "why not" it is released in a very short time?

I am sorry you are frustrated (perhaps you should avoid this topic and just be surprised when the A330 launches). But no other A320 aircraft at this moment. We still have fine plans for that one but only when we are able to get all the information we need. And that is simply not possible. How strange as it may sound for some things even pilots with thousands of hours on type are unable to assist. To create the tables we need they would have to fly for many many hours and non-standard settings and though we have many befriended airlines, I am assuming none will like that!

Happy Holidays Guys!

 

Trust me, it's not personal.  We've given fair warning that we will remove any posts requesting release information, which is our policy.  The best thing to do is either monitor this forum, or head over to the Aerosoft Store and sign up for our Newsletter which when the time comes will contain release information.

 

Again, it's not personal. 

 

For additional information, please see the link below.

We are doing the standard A330-300, not the Enhanced. None of the airlines we referenced during our research had the airport map installed in their aircraft.

will you do other variations of the A330 after you have released the A330-300 and are happy with it?

 

As far as I understand (and you can search the forums for the correct/more precise answers) the current position is basically:

Nothing's been decided. No use crossing that bridge, until (or unless) they come to it.

To keep this thread as relevant and current as possible, it's time for some pruning, which we do occasionally to keep the thread concise. Messages more than two weeks old that are simple comments, messages that ask about release date, or messages that are later answered with a quote of the original message will be hidden from all but the moderators. That should reduce the page count considerably for new or occasional posters. If your message is one hidden and you're convinced it doesn't fit the above criteria, just post again. As always, PLEASE NO QUESTIONS ABOUT RELEASE DATE OR PRICE. When they're known, Mathijs will post about it.

 

Edit: See Mathijs' comments below for info on 32 bit versions (FSX/FSX:SE/P3Dv3). It's the latest. Further questions on these versions will also be removed from view.

I am sure that you guys (AS 330 Dev team) will have noticed, it is becoming rather apparent that the company is becoming the brunt of quite a lot of ironic humour interns of release dates etc. across social media -

Unavoidable if you have 40 running projects (and not one or two as almost all competition) and are open to customers.  It would not happen if we would just not say anything or not even announce what we are working on. But this is 2019 and that is not how we want to treat customers. But when I read it I find it all pretty amusing to be honest. There are 4 people working full time on the bus projects and things go as fast as we can hope.

Carl, Mathijs didn't mention the number of people not working full time on the A330 but split their work over several projects. Don't mistake the number of 4 to be the total number of people working in the Airbus. And also you seem to have overlooked his first sentence. With 40 projects running simultaneously you can't throw all your resources onto just one project. 4 FTEs are actually a large number in this respect. And as I said, they are by far not alone, its just that the others are not FTEs.
