Overall Summary
The airport can cater to a wide variety of simmers from short-haul to long haul and cargo ops. Despite a few minor issues that could be fixed with an update, the airport has more good things going for it than bad and if fixed it will be one of the better airports out there. With that in mind, its price is also up there even surpassing many other top tier developers. If these minor issues mentioned are corrected and the performance improved, I could see that cost being justified, however, I feel like in its current state it could be sold for a few dollars less given that it doesn't necessarily bring anything new or revolutionary to the table, it's just a great looking airport at this point.

FlightSimLabs A321-X: The FSElite First Look

FlightSimLabs A321 X The FSElite First Look
I have used other aircraft comparable to the FlightSimLabs A321-X, but no other developer has even come close as what FlightSimLabs does with this Airbus aircraft. I have used other aircraft within the same price range, a number of them I might add, and none of them immerses me in the cockpit with the same quality sounds, visuals and system

Initially, PMDG sent the community into a bit of a panic when they announced that the long-awaited and fabled NG3 would instead be heading to Microsoft Flight Simulator and not to Prepar3D. At the time, the product named NGXu was never known to the community until a few hours after the initial announcement. Whether you think it was PR suicide or genius, the fact remains that the community got a brand new 737 Next Generation aircraft almost out of the blue.

Introduction

The 737NG remains on the most popular aircraft in the world. The aircraft developed by Boeing has always been a staple in the aviation industry thanks to its versatility, cost and overall passenger satisfaction. In recent years there have been a lot of hot topics surrounding the aircraft maker, but the 737 is still one of the most used aircraft in the world. As such, it’s a hugely popular aircraft for simmers to want to get their hands on. For many years, FSX/P3D users have had the PMDG 737NGX to get their fix of flying in the aircraft type. Despite how often it is still used, the aircraft released nearly 10 years ago for FSX. Technology has changed significantly since then. Despite a time where once PMDG vowed their products would never be in a Lockheed Martin simulator, the PMDG NGXu has been specifically built for Prepar3D v4, meaning that this is the first time one of their aircraft has been built exclusively with 64-bit technology in mind.
