Aerosoft Show First A330 Screenshots of 2017

The first Aerosoft A330 preview screenshots of 2017 have appeared over the Aerosoft forums.

A quick progress check showing off the details on the lower wing parts of the giant aircraft. Stefan was quick to inform us that work is currently focusing on flap track fairings as well as rivets. For those counting, yes the number of rivets are correct as photography of the wing was taken in extremely high detail!

More information to come for soon.

Why are we covering this after we said no more A330 until something significant?

Personally, after a long-ish break from updates, first screens of the new year were kind of exciting!

Aerosoft A330 Preview 25 Nov 2016

Aerosoft have kept their tradition of revealing preview screenshots of their up and coming A330.

Extremely similar to what we’ve seen before, we can see that the Dragonair livery is getting lots of use. This time, we can see some detail in the tail.

Posted by Stefan, he explains that the details have now been completed for the A330-300. Despite the challenges of creating a complex part of the aircraft, he is now happy with the tail and will be moving onto the last section – the wings. Because the area is so large and he has to complete the research, it will take longer than the usual 5 days. This may mean no screenshot update next week.

Finally, he said that there will be a detailed paintkit manual come release, which we’re expecting to take place in 2017.

Until we see something new from Aerosoft, these will be the last shots FSElite post.

Keep an eye on the Aerosoft forums for more details.

Black Box Simulation Widebody Updated to v0.85.2

After the launch of the Black Box Simulation Widebody package last month, the team have been busy working hard ensuring the product is stable. As a result, the Black Box Simulation Widebody package has been updated to version v0.85.2.

Whilst the full fix list has yet to be shown to us, you can download it from the link here.

Of course, why not read our brand new “Should you buy It?” article to see if it’s worth your money. Or you can just try their demo. Choice is yours.

Blackbox Simulation Support Centre Now Open!

After the recent V0.85 update A LOT of you headed over to the BlackBox Simulation Facebook page to get technical support with certain aspects of the product, but unfortunately it appeared Facebook wasn’t an effective way of handling so Blackbox have made a Customer Support Centre.

It takes the layout of a forum where questions can be answered, or problems can be solved. BBS have learned that Facebook and 8,000 + needing technical support isn’t the most effective way of helping people, so this ‘Support Centre’ will be an effective way of helping people, so Kudos to them!

This will be a great way of handling questions about the A330/40 BBS package as it provides solutions and answers to FAQ’s in one place. It also means that problems are solved much faster additionally it stops people asking the same question over and over again.

Try out the Support Centre here and stay tuned for further BBS updates here at FSElite!



BlackBox Widebody update v0.85.1

BlackBox Simulation has informed us that they have released v0.85.1 of their WideBody package. This update aims to fix issues some users were reporting related to registration.

Users that have purchased this product will receive their update through an e-mail send out by BBS or their vendor of choice. Users that have purchased this package at SimMarket will need to contact BlackBox Simulations. You can check out the full post including a complete change log over here.


BlackBox Simulations released v0.85 of their WideBody package last week and is a major update including new and updated textures, models and a brand-new pre-flight manager amongst other things.
