iniBuilds’ much anticipated Airbus A320neo for Microsoft Flight Simulator is now available through Microsoft Flight Simulator’s open beta.
The aircraft, which was first announced by Jorg Neumann on the most recent MSFS Developer Livestream, can now be accessed if owners of Microsoft Flight Simulator switch over from the stable to the beta branch of the game. For instructions on how to do this, follow this guide if you own the game through the Microsoft store, and this guide if you own it on Steam.
The plane comes with Xbox Aviators Club liveries, an all-white livery and the modern “house” livery, along with some fictional airlines. However, freeware livery site flightsim.to is already awash with airline liveries which can be installed for the aircraft.
The plane benefits from significantly enhanced systems depth, more clickspots, more accurate text size and colour, and an overhauled visual model.
The version of the aircraft featured in the current beta build is apparently not the most recent version of the plane, and is said to be several versions behind iniBuilds’ current in-dev build.
It currently suffers from a bug that means some simmers have experienced stuttering on short final in the aircraft, however it is likely that this will be patched out before a release candidate is unleashed on the simming community.
That release candidate is currently slated to ship with Sim Update 14, which is currently scheduled for release in a little over 2 weeks on December 5th.
FSElite will bring you more info on the aircraft as and when it becomes available.
