Fenix Releases V2B2 of their A320 for MSFS

After a long and anticipated wait, Fenix Simulations has released Version 2 Block 2 (V2B2) of its A320 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The changelog below will give you a full understanding of what to expect with this all-new version of the Fenix A320. If you’re looking for some highlights of what is included, here’s an idea. V2B2 comes with improved EFBs, a new cabin announcement system, full GSX integration, and vast improvements to the engine simulation. Speaking of engine simulation, you will now get IAE engines included with the package, now completing both engine types for the A320 series.

V2B2 also comes with some impressive new 3D modelling. As a result, all your old liveries are now redundant, meaning you will need to download a fresh set. To help support efforts on making the most comprehensive livery set possible, Fenix has teamed up with a number of community artists who have made some stunning-looking liveries.

A new blog post was shared that gives you some fundamentals to understand some things that has changed with the new update. It’s worth reading to answer any burning questions you may have as you download your update.

If you don’t already own the Fenix A320, you can buy it from their store for £49.99. If you want to update, you will need to head to your customer portal and you can download from there.
