  1. Gap in floor on captain’s side removed

    ^^^ wow. only took them 2 years!!! to fix 1 gap. that we all have been telling them and showing them with photos in like 400 different threads… . im guessing they are feeling the heat from AS. good. competition is good.

  2. I installed this version but the FPS drop down dramatically. I went from 50 fps full setting to 7 fps with low P3d settings. I wonder they will have to work upon it again

  3. FSL A320 will blow anything aerosoft brings to the table out of the water. As far as people complaining about performance and frame rates. The simple answer is you need a very powerful computer. I have no issues with this aircraft. The problem with dynamic lighting is a LM problem not FSL.

    1. lol sounds like you are trying to convince yourself, not us. enjoy an inferior product. “very powerful computer” is a codeword for unoptimized resource hog, just to let you know. have fun tho

  4. Aerosoft airbus = poor mans airbus.
    PMDG,FSL, separates the men from the boys. You must be one of those clowns still using FSX. Lol

    You get what you pay for. There is no way in hell a $60 airbus is gonna offer what is currently available from FSL quality wise. Aerosoft stated it will not be a study sim. So basically a toy.

    People are constantly complaining about the price of aircraft is ridiculous. FSL is within $25 of any full release from PMDG. Flightsim is a expensive hobby no doubt. Bottom line is if it’s too much for you to take get the hell out…

  5. AS is already better visually than the FSL… and talking about the 2014 release. the one that is upcoming FSL cannot touch; they do not have the skills.

    the difference between pmdg and fsl is pmdg can make something that works. fsl cannot. if pmdg released products in the state fsl does, they would be called captainsim.

    again, sorry you have buyers remorse and need to talk about how much money you spent = something better. clearly not.

  6. You are a real dumb shit! Lol . I have zero remorse this aircraft works flawlessly with my 6700k and 1080ti machine. You are a true dumb ass…. good bye

    1. fanboy got upset he got smacked with the truth. its ok. 1080ti is something impressive? son you should have spent those money towards a better rig. your shit is already 1 year past its fresh date, just like any FSL patch so I guess that fits

  7. I didn’t know small kids were already playing with simulators, but from what I’m reading here it’s obviously the case 😉

    It’s true study-level aircraft are more demanding, especially an Airbus with all the complex computerized systems. It’s really down to what experience you desire and at what cost. There is no denying the FSL add-on is much more detailed in its graphics, model and systems, whereas the Aerosoft is more casual and cheaper. So for anyone who just wants to quickly be in the air and admire the view, perhaps the Aerosoft’s add-on is a good compromise. But for anyone looking for a training tool, or just an in-depth experience, it can only be a disappointment.

    1. I wasn’t aware you are all airbus 320 pilots using this as a training tool that is approved by your airline and local examination authority. kek.. nerds man nerds
