ToLiss A321 Now Available for X-Plane 11

After weeks of anticipation, the team at ToLiss has released their awaited A321 for X-Plane 11. The aircraft product is officially licensed from Airbus and comes with a range of features and both engine types for the CEO model. The A321 is the bigger brother of the A320, packing in additional rows of seats, increased MTOW and range, all with familiar cockpit layouts and even the same wing. That extra weight and length give you a much different feeling and challenge when flying this narrow-body jet.

Included in the package come release will be both the CFM 56 and IAE V2500 with Turbine Sound Studios (TSS) sound packs. Both engine variants will include wingtip fences and sharklets as well as optional ACTs to enable users to fly the aircraft under A321LR spec (CEO not NEO). The MCDU is based on the ToLiss 1.4 update which saw a huge overhaul. Other highlighted features include support for SID/STAR in the MCDU, full VNAV guidance, step-climb, independent MCDUs and full support for go-arounds and diversions.

As for the flight modelling, ToLiss has included a full QPAC Fly-by-wire system and autopilot module with hydraulics modelling, brake temperature model and custom flight control systems with hinge moment modelling. You can also inject faults into te aircraft to simulate numerous failure types. This is all part of the highly detailed 3D modelling and texture work found both internally and externally.

As we were already made aware, the ToLiss A321 is priced at $79 across various stores. At the time of writing, it is available at and soon simMarket.


Detailed FMGS:

  • Support of SID/STAR, including all leg types (Arc, course or heading to intercept, Radius to Fix, Holdings, etc.)
  • Temporary and alternate flight plans
  • Secondary flight plan
  • Full VNAV guidance with TOC, TOD, Deceleration point, speed limits, fuel prediction, etc
  • Altitude and speed constraints as the real aircraft deals with them
  • Ability to change the selected STAR while already in the STAR
  • Support for go-arounds and diversions
  • Step altitudes
  • Airway support
  • Fix Info page
  • Latitude/Longitude crossings
  • 2 independent MCDUs and autopilots
  • Drag, thrust and fuel consumption models adapt to selected engine type and wing tip device
  • Choice between new FMGS with temporary flight plan even during preflight phase or old FMGS with direct editing of the active plan during preflight phase

Top-notch aircraft systems:

  • QPAC Fly-by-wire and autopilot module with numerous improvements
  • Flight control system with hinge moment modelling giving realistic float angles for surfaces that are lost due to system faults
  • Custom TCAS with Traffic and Resolution Advisory based on real aircraft logic
  • Brake temperature model based on the detailed physics of heat transfer between the individual brake components
  • Hydraulics model in which the pressure is dependent on usage. This is most notable when dropping to RAT mode or with and engine wind milling
  • Detailed model of each ADIRU including alignment, small pressure sensor differences between the units, switching of sources for PFDs
  • Custom air conditioning model supporting high altitude operations at airports like Cusco in Peru or La Paz in Bolivia without spurious warnings
  • Flight warning system with ECAM actions supporting numerous system failure scenarios, e.g. engine failures, generator failures, hydraulic failures
  • Fault injection system allowing to trigger system faults either at a specific point in flight or randomly during a flight phase

Eye- and ear-candy:

  • Detailed 3D cockpit with high quality texturing
  • 3D exterior model with CFM and IAE engine
  • Choice between classic wingtip fences or modern sharklets (controlled via livery names)
  • Each aircraft comes with licensed high definition sounds from Turbine Sound Studios, the market leader for aircraft sounds in the FSX/P3D world
  • Rain effects thanks to the librain library provided to the x-plane community by Saso Kiselkov
  • Custom particle effects for engine heat trail, landing gear smoke on touch-down etc. (X-Plane 11 only)
  • Standby compass that can be stowed, cockpit door that opens, fully modeled cabin, etc.

Usability features:

  • Situation loading and saving. It is possible to save the flight at any point in time and resume it another day. This can also be used, e.g., to save the position just before approach and practice just the approach many times
  • Auto saving allows recovering where you left off, should the X-Plane session end unexpectedly
  • Jumping waypoint-to-waypoint through the cruise phase: Shorten your flight to focus on the more interesting parts as you like
  • 4 different startup configuration from Cold and Dark to engines running and ready to go
  • In-screen popup displays or use of x-plane windows for popups (X-Plane 11 only)


  • Windows 7 64bit and Windows 10 64bit
  • Linux 64bit. (Tested on Ubuntu 18.04)
  • Apple Macintosh OS X 10.11 and up
