Watch Airline2Sim Preview the iniSimulations A300

Airline2Sim is known for their detailed (and great) tutorial video content that puts a pilot in the simulator to tackle some of the add-ons available. In the latest video from Airline2Sim, we see Ben and former Monarch Airlines Captain Eric Girardey take a look at the iniSimulations A300 for X-Plane 11.

In this series of videos, Ben is taken on a guided tour of the aircraft, it’s quirks and some of the nuances found in the aeroplane from a pilot’s perspective. This is a three-part mini series with a focus on a first look, the cockpit and also a full flight from Manchester to Dublin.

Episodes 1 and 2 are available right now, with episode 3 coming out a little later.

Episode #2 – Flight Deck Setup

It’s great to see Airline2Sim back producing content and we hope this is the start of more to come.

As for the iniSimulations A300, we are expecting a release this month. We will tell you when it’s available to buy for X-Plane 11.

X-Plane 11 aircraft developer Big Tire Productions has announced that their Kitfox aircraft will be coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Even more important to note is that the aircraft will be brought over free of charge for current owners of the aircraft in X-Plane 11.
