Update 28th July 2017 @ 14:10z: Despite the earlier posting of an August release date, Mathijs has now revised his estimates saying that “August is simply not possible”. He said that there are many variables which impacts the release, and so won’t be providing an update right now on a possible time frame.
Because of this, we can all go back to anticipating an Airbus in P3DV4 and whenever the CRJ will come out. Sorry for getting hopes up!
Earlier today, Aerosoft updated their P3Dv4 compatibility list, which highlighted that they were still possibly on track to release their A320 series this coming August. With this in mind, Mathijs took to the forums earlier to give a brief update on what to expect from Aerosoft for their upcoming aircraft release. This includes the CRJ, the A320 Series 2018 Edition and of course the long awaited A330.
First and foremost, it should be clarified that the current version of the Aerosoft Airbus series will not be made compatible with P3Dv4. While this may sound disappointing, remember that we’ve been receiving updates for it since 2014! With that said, Aerosoft have assured us before that the new version will come with more than just compatibility. For example, there’s a brand new revised virtual cockpit (screenshots below), a host of update to the systems and a more complete MCDU.
