Aerosoft Releases A330 Professional for Prepar3D V4

Aerosoft A330 Professional Release (8)

After many years of development, the Aerosoft A330 Professional for Prepar3D V4 has been released.

The A330 Professional models the wide-body Airbus A330-300 with RR engines in P3Dv4. Designed to be “focused on the day to day operation of the aircraft from the left seat”, the product includes a wide range of features to give simmers an immersive experience. Included is a full custom fly-by-wire system which has functional stall protection, pitch and roll limiter, g-load limiter, over speed protection, Alpha Floor protection and auto trim. The aircraft also simulates systems such as the autopilot, the MCDU and much more.

Also included is an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), which simulates various aspects from right inside the cockpit. From charts and flows to multiple websites and performance information, the EFB has been included to give you easy access to a range of resources. You can also read documents such as the included manuals from the seat. A functional weather radar (with default weather or any engine) is also included, along with a working RAAS from FS2Crew.

In total, 13 liveries are packaged including Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa and the Airbus house colours. The different liveries have variations on their modelling to include the different SAT devices and usable emergency doors. Other features worth noting is the inclusion of a built-in camera system to cycle between views, ground service units (e.g. GPU, chocks), and an interactive co-pilot who can perform actions within the aircraft. A full list of features can be found below.

You can buy the Aerosoft A330 for €58.70 (excluding tax/VAT, when applicable). This is a stand-alone purchase. The good news is that if you owned the A320/321 or the A319/18 Professional packs, then you will only pay €40.56 (plus VAT) as part of an upgrade fee.

Update: all systems go. A special 10% discount has been added for the first 24 hours of sale. See the forum post for details.

It’s worth noting that Aerosoft is encouraging people to first read the release notes prior to purchasing the aircraft so people are aware of some current limitations.
