Flight Factor A320 Ultimate Released for X-Plane 11

The P3D community had their fix of Airbus sims today, with the release of the FSLabs A320-X update. However, the X-Plane community haven’t been left behind either! Today, Flight Factor released the first public build of their A320 Ultimate for users to purchase.

The Flight Factor A320 Ultimate aims to be the most in-depth, realistic and detailed aircraft yet released for X-Plane 11. Utilizing a custom flight model, high quality texture set and thousands of simulated objects, the A320 Ultimate promises to ‘mimic the real aircraft’. The aircraft has been under beta testing for a while with customer feedback and many are saying this is a fantastic aircraft.

The A320 Ultimate features high quality texturing and modelling throughout. Both the interior and exterior modelling provides a realistic appearance. Of course, being an Airbus aircraft, all flight modes are modeled, the aerodynamics are accurate and comes complete with specific engine modelling. The aircraft also simulates transition effects, self-tests and other features that aren’t documented in the manuals, but approved by real-world pilots.

The aircraft is now on sale at X-Plane.org for $89.95. You can find the full feature list down below as well as product requirements. As this is version number 0.8.1, we imagine there will be a bunch of updates in the coming weeks and months to further improve the aircraft. We’ll be working on a review for you guys as soon as possible.
