After various previews of the upcoming Professional Airbus series by Aerosoft, a date has been finally set down for when the community can complete their narrow-body Airbus fleet from Aerosoft. According to a post on Monday by Mathijs, the current plan to release the A320/321 Professional is for a launch on Thursday September 6th.

It was also confirmed that a 32-bit version of the Professional series won’t be happening. This means users of the current Airbus models in FSX and P3Dv3 will no longer be receiving substantial updates for those aircraft. The reason being is that the 32-bit market is dying out pretty rapidly and the cost of conversion would be higher than the possible return. Of course, if those users have jumped to P3Dv4, then you can pick up the Professional series for a reduced rate. However, as we reported a few days ago, there is still a possibility that a 32-bit version of the A330 will happen.

In the mean time, Stefan did show off some of the differences between the overhead panel of the variety of Airbus models. You can also view some external modelling shots here.
