Despite the fact we haven’t heard from Aerosoft in a while regarding their A330, Mathiks Kok has updated us with Aerosoft’s plans for the next year in regards to their Airbus line of products. We’ve been all aware that the A330 probably wasn’t going to be out this year, so a 2017 is now confirmed. What’s most interesting is that Mr. Kok has “dropped the idea” of doing the 4th Service Pack to the Aerosoft Airbus A32x family. Saying that it made “little sense” as all of the Airbus systems are now “standardised” so making it suit a specific aircraft will be a simple change to a config file.
As a result, 2017 will bring us a range of “2017 Edition” aircraft. The results are below:
- Aerosoft Airbus A330 (2017 edition)
- Aerosoft Airbus A318/A319 (2017 edition)
- Aerosoft Airbus A320/A321 (2017 edition)
- Aerosoft Airbus Axxx (hopefully 2017 edition)
Of course, as with all current Aerosoft products, you don’t pay for the same file twice. So if you already own the Aerosoft Airbus A318/319 range, then you’ll pay simply an ‘upgrade’ price.
Something that hasn’t escaped our attention is the inclusion of an “Aerosoft Airbus Axxx”. I remember Mr. Kok talking about the possibility of an A350, but I can’t imagine there’s enough data (or time) to release it in 2017. It also doesn’t fit in with the fact it’s Axxx and not A3xx, suggesting it may be something other than a commercial Airbus aircraft.
Whatever it is, just makes us more and more excited for 2017.
