Study Level A380 Confirmed for Prepar3D V4 and X-Plane

A380confirmed.fw

It’s a busy day for Matt as he’s just gone on record to confirm that he and his team of 8 will be working on a Airbus A380. Via his Twitch account, he said it will be a “study level” sim, as it’s something he has always wanted to work on. Due to the fact the aircraft is seriously complex, it won’t be for a 32-bit environment so the team will be developing it Prepar3D V4 and X-Plane.

He confirmed that he has the contacts he needs to develop the aircraft.

Outside of this information, there’s not a lot left to tell other than he’s already started working out the logic behind certain systems include “Brake to Vacate (BTV)”.

Don’t expect it to be released any time soon. This is a project of love that will be developed as long as it needs – there’s no time scale. Matt said that he’ll possibly update us on development come the end of the year, but for now, let’s take this as confirmation for an aircraft to look forward to in the future.

As for why we’re not putting this under the grill like we did for Cloud Surf Team is the fact that Matt is an established community member who has produced the fantastic ProjectFly.

In the mean time, the team will continue to develop ProjectFly and SimStall (and now the PTA tool).

  1. I disagree on him revealing this information. It takes years and years to develop an aircraft. They might run into a bump or so and it will get cancelled. Why tease the public so early before even having a full crew to work on it. shame.
