FlyByWire Simulations A32NX Will Soon Have Ground Equipment and Improved LNAV

The impressive A32NX is due to see an update and will bring improved LNAV and new ground equipment with it.

Developers FlyByWire Simulations has taken to Facebook to preview some new ground equipment that will be part of the A32NX freeware aircraft very soon.

The post didn’t give much detail on how they will be implemented or how the user will be able to interact with them, but the screenshots do showcase the level of detail these objects will have. The two pieces shown off include a traffic cone and also ground chocks. They said on the post that “Chockingly new ground equipment coming soon!”

Further to the new ground equipment modelling, the team has been working hard on improvements to the LNAV. Again, posting on Facebook, the team said that this new implementation will “support significantly more accurate path predictions and turns.” The example given shows a capture turn into a course-to-fix leg and an overfly turn directly to a fix. This is reported to be close to how it would be represented in the actual aircraft.

Both of these features are due to be released with the freeware FlyByWire Simulations A32NX very soon.

With all these improvements and changes, it’s no surprise that the team opted to go the PC-only route in order to improve the product. Whilst it is a shame that Xbox owners won’t be able to experience the aircraft, it has opened up more possibilities for those on PC. We still have a while to wait until the FlyByWire Simulations A380 appears, so these improvements to the A32NX will tie us over in the meantime.
