Following recent teasing, FlyByWire Simulations has taken to Facebook, indicating to community followers the release of their latest stable update to their Airbus A320Neo modification for MSFS.

The recent update brings the Airbus mod up to version 0.5.0 and, according to the detailed changelogfeatures an extensive 165 modifications or additions to the previously existing version of the airplane.

Some of the main features introduced with this version of the plane include Simbrief integration, a functioning Air Traffic Service Unit (ATSU), an MCDU Option page, reworked flight dynamics, extensively overhauled internal and external sounds, as well as improved interior and exterior lighting.

The development team indicated that although users were keenly awaiting the introduction of additional features with this update, including the addition of both a custom created electrical and hydraulic system, as well as the introduction of a custom made fly-by-wire system, the addition of said features had to be post-phoned in-light of MSFS SDK insufficiencies. However, for those not minding a few bugs, the team provided interested users with a link to download a version of the A32NX mod featuring part of the new experimental fly-by-wire system.

The new stable version of the Airbus A32NX mod by FlyByWire Simulations can be downloaded via the FlyByWire Simulations download page.

Those interested in the new experimental fly-by-wire system can download the latest version of the A32NX featuring said system via the link provided in their most recent Facebook announcement. Community members should be aware, however, that this version might contain some bugs.
