Airbus X Extended Preview (topic closed, product released)

Recommended Posts

updated information, more images.

General

  • Simulation of the Airbus A320 and A321 focused on the day to day operation of the aircraft from the left seat.
  • Five models: A320 IAE engines, A320 CFM engines, A321 IAE engines, A321 CFM engines, A320 NEO demonstrator (A320 CFM with sharklets).
  • Late model cockpit (with LCD and updated ADIRS). Note we do default to the A321 CFM cockpit for all models (that is is also flown with N1 displays btw).
  • Twenty-one liveries, extensive paint kit. Over 100 additional liveries available on release.
  • Sublime modeling/texturing based on the latest technologies. Very easy on frame-rates.
  • Landing lights, taxi lights, taxiway turn-off lights created with the best technology which actually lights objects up.
  • Dozens of non-standard animations, all with sound effects (sun screens, windows, tables, tiller, jump seat, standby compass, drooping flight surfaces etc).
  • Included web server that allows you to access (and use) the MCDU via any web browser; ideal for tablet computers.
  • Automated State Save that saves (and loads) all the aircraft systems when the standard FSX save (load) option is used.
  • Extensive options to show ground objects (cones, ground power etc) and to actually provide ground power.
  • All main doors and cargo hatches can be opened.
  • Many systems programmed in XML to allows users to change code.
  • Extensive manuals, with highly detailed step-by-step section in (at least) 12 languages.
  • Prepared for Airport Enhancement Services. Fully compatible with GSX.
  • SDK will be available, LINDA connectivity available.
  • Add-in system that allows the aircraft to be extended with 3rd party applications (all using the right MCDU).
  • Add-in View system: adds many pre-defined views for easy use, emulates 2D panel views.
  • Add-in Sound system: adds hundreds of background sounds to enhance the immersion.
  • Add-in Checklist system: semi-automated audio checklists. Checklist has two options, callouts only, or callouts with semi-automation (think virtual co-pilot)
  • We opened part of the support sections already so the FAQ section could assist in answering some of the frequently asked questions: http://forum.aerosof.../forum/518-faq/
  • Fully tested under Windows 8

    Systems
    • Fully custom Fly-by-Wire systems with flight envelope protection, stall protection, pitch and roll limiter, g-load limiter, over speed protection, Alpha Floor protection, auto trim. Very nice to manually fly.
    • Fully custom autopilot systems, with full Cat III auto land, V/S, Managed CLB/DES, OP CLB/DES, heading and NAV modes. VNAV and LNAV included. FPA/TRK included.

    • Full featured MCDU (can be controlled via web browser, for example on tablet computers), also, information can be inserted using a the keyboard!
    • Flight plans supports SIDs, STARs, transitions, approaches, go-arounds, holds, Managed climbs and descent, constraints, and direct-to route editing.
    • VOR tracking implemented, DME arcs supported.
    • Comes with NavDataPro (LIDO) navigation database (better coverage then Navigraph) but backwards compatible with Navigraph. AIRAC 1213 is included and this can be updated by the user at any moment.
    • Complete Runway Awareness and Advisory System included.
    • 12 ECAM pages included, showing relevant aircraft information.
    • Full featured Digital Flight Data Recorder (DFDR) with 25 hour storage capacity and external display program (data can be exchanged with FS Flight Keeper, and a visual display of your flight can be exported to view in Google Earth).
    • Full features ADIR's system.
    • Full feature TCAS system (including audio warnings) for AI Traffic, IVAO, VATSIM
    • Full custom electrical bus system, with realistic battery run down and voltages.
    • Navigation display with curved lines, de-cluttering, stopwatch, selected navaid, runway information, range change, mode change, stopwatch etc.
    • Full custom fuel flow, avoiding standard FSX limitations.
    • Full custom autobrakes with constant deceleration instead of constant brake pressure.
    • Full featured loading and refueling module (interfaced with FSX) with advanced and simple mode.
    • Print option (not virtual, real printing) for performance sheet with V1, VR, V2, Runway Data, Packs, Flaps, Acceleration Height, Flex, Wind, OAT, QNH

What a fantastic pictures!!!! Congratulation Aerosoft!

BUT, you should have put these pictures onto the forum only on the day of the release, becasue now it hurts even more that we can not switch EXT POWER ON right now and start the prep for take off

Very nice, sorry for not following but is there an ETA already or is it still open?

There is really good progress at this moment but I am not able to give an ETA at this moment.

Looks damn good!... I never thought I would say that but I actually look forward to try this Airbus..

We, the people who love simulation with a high (sometimes very accurate) level of featured systems, have always had a lack of a GOOD airbus, if you fly LevelD, PMDG, Maddog and many others, don't understand why not an Airbus.

Now we all know why, simulating a good Airbus takes time, efforts and a custom design and development, and that's what Aerosoft is doing.

This is the reason why I don't waste my money in other Airbus, I don't want toys, I want to simulate, I prefer waiting than wasting.

Mathijs, did you choose not to include the A321 with sharklets? :P

Still possible it will be provided but progress is so good on the TwinOtter that I hesitate to take the modeler of it at this moment. We'll surely be able to deliver it later.

Will we be able to enter an alternate route in case we cannot land at the planned destination airport like in the real aircraft ?

Yes, you enter the alternate airport on the INIT page and when needed can switch to that one. You will need to do some routing of course (the MCDU is not a flight planner) but when that is done it will all the calculations (like ToD) will be updated.
