Aerosoft Announces Development of Airbus Series for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Aerosoft Airbus Microsoft Flight Simulator

Whilst the news seemed inevitable that Aerosoft would bring their series of Airbus aircraft to the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator, it has today been confirmed that development has entered the very early stages. It is confirmed that the A320/A321, A318/A319 and the A330 will all make an appearance in the new simulator at some point in the future.

Shared by Mathijs Kok on the forums, three people are currently working on the systems for the aircraft and over the next few months that team will grow to six. Whilst Aerosoft are welcoming comments and feedback, it must be made clear that they are in the very early stages of development and this post serves more as a piece of information rather than a preview and feature blowout. The team aren’t likely going to have much to share for some time, but to avoid any doubt, Aerosoft will be bringing the series of planes to the new simulator.

It is also confirmed that these aircraft will continue to focus on day-to-day operations for the aircraft and will not feature systems that very rarely happen in real-world operations. It was also confirmed that these aircraft are completely new builds and will feature many new pieces of technology thanks to the new engine of Microsoft Flight Simulator. The preview shared is of some very early work and modelling and texturing hasn’t really started yet.

It must be absolutely stressed that development on the Airbus series does not mean work on the CRJ or Twin Otter has stopped or delayed, as both aircraft will come before the Airbus series.

You can follow the full thread on the Aerosoft forums, but Mathijs has made it clear that right now replies will be limited to when there is new information. He does, however, want constructive feedback to help shape the future of the development.

Just Flight Shares New Development Previews of A300 in Prepar3D

Just Flight A300 P3d Dec 2020 (2)

With the Just Flight 146 Professional firmly in the hands of simmers, attention is now turning to other aircraft in the pipeline from the development team. One particular aircraft that Prepar3D users are excited for is the upcoming A300B4-200 from Just Flight.

The new post on Facebook confirmed that they have finished development on the visual elements such as the modelling and texture work, with work now ongoing for the systems and flight dynamics. The release isn’t “far off” and that we’ll see some video footage of the plane in action soon. To be clear, the aircraft won’t be released this side of the new year.

When Just Flight eventually releases A300B4-200, it will come packed with features. As per the updated product page, the aircraft will feature realistic 4K textures with PBR materials, along with bump mapping for a true 3D feeling. Alongside that, the aircraft will feature realistic wing-flex, authentic checklists and a panel state system which will save when you exit the aircraft leaving it in the same state for when you enter it next.

Stay with FSElite to continue following our coverage on the upcoming release from Just Flight. Whilst not related to the A300 itself, you can get a flavour for a Just Flight developed aircraft by watching our first look on the 146 Professional.
