[CLOSED] WIN A Free Copy of iniSimulations A310-300 ON THE LINE for XPL

Inisimulations A310 Xplane (17)

Thanks to those who entered. Congratulations to Myles who won with this inspirational flight idea:

The first flight I will do is a profile similar to that flown by the SA Novespace A310 (F-WNOV). This aircraft is used for microgravity operations, and helps further various fields of scientific study. A typical flight will depart from Paderborn Lippstadt Airport in Germany, and perform a series of low-high-low altitude climbs and dives, with each apogee yielding around 22 seconds of microgravity; each flight will consist of approximately 10 minutes of microgravity. Additionally, I will be sure to make an SA Novespace livery and share it with the community if none are included with the aircraft!

Thanks to everyone who entered! Huge thanks also to iniBuilds for the opportunity. Don’t forget, you can pick up your very own copy of the A310-300 ON THE LINE now from the iniBuilds store.


We are thrilled to offer the community the opportunity to win a free copy of the upcoming iniSimulations A310-300 ON THE LINE for X-Plane 11. With a release for the aircraft right around the corner, we’re excited to give everyone the chance to get their hands on a copy for free.

To be in with the chance to win, we’re looking for you to inspire the community. We’re looking for you to tell us in the comment section below what route you will do first and why. We’ll then pick from the entries below that give us the flying vibes. Better yet, for those reading, they will also have a chance to get inspired and find some interesting routes to fly this summer once the plane releases. There are no restrictions on the routing, but give it a good story and reason. If we pick you, we’ll tag you in a comment and then give you some instructions on how to claim your prize.

You have 24-hours to get your story in the comment section below. Entries will close on July 22nd @ 09:30z. The winner will be announced shortly afterwards. No purchase is necessary. Competition open to over 16s only.

More on the iniSimulations A310-300

The A310 first flew in 1982 and entered service with Swissair in 1983. The A310 was Airbus’ second aircraft venture and was produced to fill the demand for a smaller aircraft than the A300 and to compete with the Boeing 767-200. 255 aircraft were produced in three variants; civilian – which included a business jet configuration by Airbus Corporate Jets, cargo, and military Multi-Role Transport and Tanker (MRTT). 

iniSimulations has detailed some of the extensive modelling and features that they have included in the upcoming release such as custom cabin announcements and mood lighting, comprehensive systems and failures, fully integrated takeoff and landing performance calculator, autosave functionality as well as integrated Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) system to use when flying on supported online networks. The A310-300 ON THE LINE will come with Airbus Corporate Jet, civilian and cargo configurations as well as a host of liveries, compiled by the iniBuilds repaint team.

Although no price was disclosed, owners of the A300-600R ON THE LINE will receive a 35% discount for the A310-300 ON THE LINE.
