FlyByWire Simulations Updates A32NX to v0.4.0 for MSFS

Flyby 2.c89deba9

Gathering of developers FlyByWire Simulations has posted a new update to their improvement of the default Microsoft Flight Simulator A320Neo to version 0.4.0. As you will see below, the change log is impressive. This is due to a combination of dedicated team and the fact that there is still a lot of room for improvement in the default A320NEO. The work in progress is coordinated through Github, where you can find an explicit list on work in progress features. The team is helped by many real world A320NEO pilots who are able to provide cross-referenced feedback to the developers.

The ECAM and CDU have received the most noticeable changes, with the addition of a cockpit door video function and the overhaul of the INIT pages of the CDU. Sounds have also been improved with the addition of 3D emitters for all sound for a better immersion and the noticeable addition of new startup sounds. A cockpit re texture is also in progress, with changes introduced in each new version.

This promising mod for the default MSFS A320NEO is available for free from the FlyByWire Simulations website. Make sure to stick around FSElite as each new version of this mod brings a load of new features.
