Watch the Aerosoft Airbus Series Beta in P3Dv4.1

Airbusaerosoftbeta

Over on Twitch, the Online Virtual Pilots Association (OVPA) have been busy streaming the latest version of the Aerosoft Airbus family. Specifically, they have taken the A318 from Palermo to Samos in this test flight.

You can watch the full 2.5 hour stream below. Make sure you give them a follow as they often stream beta aircraft before anyone else.

Just remember it is in beta with features still missing or broken.

  1. Who allows these guys to be beta testers? Did you see him attempt to fly that plane? This must be the reason we don’t have access to this aircraft yet. He’s calling all of his mistakes “bugs” as if it’s the aircrafts problem you don’t know how to raise the landing gear, or properly take a plane off the ground. Aerosoft…are you watching this? This is embarrassing.

    1. But he also was a beta tester for the mess and f a CRJ. And up to this date he states that he didn’t have any of the well known problems.

      But what concerns me the most: he is also beta testing the maddog! An aircraft I have high hopes for and really looking forward to!!

      Let’s hope he is only testing the shared flight deck like he did on the Q400.

  2. Needs more overlays and frames. I can almost make out the screen content. Quick, cover it up. I turned that off after 30 seconds. what a trainwreck of a stream. Can’t say anything about the product, i saw nothing of that

  3. Advacing to T/O thrust with park brake on and blaming aural warnings as bugs. Says enogh about the streamer.

  4. The Aerosoft forum is it very open to critique. First of all by the operator and secondly by the brain dead follower (of course not all)

  5. Please tell me it is a JOKE!
    The guy did nothin as it should be! He didn’t performed any checklist, and every alarm is called “bugs”!!
    The best is at landing, he said there are crosswind! Look at the display and you see …./… for wind, mean no wind!
    I think guys if this guys reprensent bet testers, we will have to wait for a long time before getting this aircraft!

  6. I have to agree with the comments here..this was absolutely horrifying to watch. He clearly does not understand the aircraft at all. I’m not sure how he can pass himself off as a beta tester. Streaming something like this certainly does not do Aerosoft any favors. I recall another stream he did with the CRJ(?) and it was the same thing…he clearly did not understand the aircraft and blamed everything on bugs and wind (when there was no wind)!! I’m not sure if much at all was wrong with the Airbus, but a lot was wrong with the pilot! Not once did he admit he did anything wrong! He messed up the approach into Samos in epic fashion but then blamed the controller for giving him an immediate turn to avoid traffic!! And yes, as Mohamed mentioned he was claiming a very strong crosswind on the second landing attempt (after he crashed into the water on the first) and no wind at all was showing on the ND….mind blown..

  7. Horrible stream…this guy has no idea what he’s doing. Beta testers should know how to properly operate the aircraft so that they can detect any abnormalities. That kind of “flying” is useless for testing.

  8. I believe without a doubt someone is handing over wads of cash to gain access to test these airplanes!! Because after seeing that shit show who in there right minds would allow them to continue testing??? They have no clue what they are doing!! How do they even get there hands on these things?? It’s obvious!! They should be dumped immediately. And then blackballed!! But noooooo….. money talks!! They couldn’t even test an abacus product as far as I’m concerned!!

  9. This is terrible and should be embarrassing for Aerosoft. You’d think after the CRJ debacle, they would want a tighter marketing message for the first public views. All we get is a privileged beta tester doing a jolly while smoking a joint. The only thing i got out of it was the master caution annunciator seems to work well.

  10. You are all correct with this is a joke. Now wake up and purchase the FSL A320. The AS version will never come close. It’ll look nice and that’s it.. the systems/ failures will be a joke as well
