The Aerosoft A330 continues its road to release with some new previews shared by both the project manager of the aircraft product and also various beta testers.
Over the past week or so, a number of new previews from livery painters and beta testers have gone live over on the Aerosoft forums. We’re seeing the long-haul Airbus aircraft now virtually flying in airline liveries from Virgin Atlantic, Thomas Cook, Jet2, Air Asia and more.
It should be made clear that the NDA is still very much active, but a few screenshots have been approved for publication. Project Manager, Mathijs Kok, said “we have allowed to share some (controlled) information form our beta testers. The NDA is still very much active.”
Alongside the previews over the past few weeks, Kok did also confirm that when a release date is decided, we, as a community, will be given a couple of weeks to prepare for it. When asked how much notice will be given, Kok confirmed, “at least two weeks.”
In terms of how development is going, it’s been said that the flight model is complete, with work on navigation being the highest priority now. “The flight model is completed; all heavy work is on getting the LNAV, VNAV and speed modes correct at this moment.”
There is still no concrete date or any indication at this time. However, if you want to start learning more about the Aerosoft A330ceo, then you can check out some of the manuals being shared online right now. Here is the ‘checklist’ manual, and the ‘Weird and Wonderful Logic’ manual.
In one of his more most recent posts on the forums, Mathijs Kok did say that the team is using the A330ceo as their ‘base model’. Once the work is complete, members of the project will move onto the next Airbus project that will follow. What that project is? Well, Kok said that “next week we’ll announce the next project.” As usual, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
