Update: Aerosoft Mega Airport Prague Available for Prepar3D V4

Ma Prag (5)

Update 12-Dec-2018: Aerosoft has released an ‘official’ version via their webstore. Users will find the new version in their customer account. The old serial and email address will work just fine. Owners of the boxed version can acquire an update by writing to the support team at XHT Labs.

The product page also states that the developer has now taken full control of support so if there are issues with the serial codes, you need to reach out to them.

If you don’t own it already, you can buy it now for 20.97 Euros via Aerosoft. This includes support for FSX and P3DV4.

— Original Article – December 2nd 2018 —

Developer XHT-Labs emailed us a few days ago telling us that their product Mega Airport Prague (LKPR) has a new open beta released. The open beta provides official support for Prepar3D V4.

The airport has been published via Aerosoft, but according to the developer, Aerosoft are starting to take their time with getting the product updated on their end. As a result, the developer decided to release it as a beta update for those that wish to have the airport in V4.

Other new features are significant bugfixes to the AirportController stability, a reworked AFCAD and graphical tweaks and changes to the texturing and modelling work.

Additionally to the beta update, users can also download dynamic lighting for Apron N and Apron E, as well as GSX Level 2 configuration files.

It should be noted that only users who purchased the product before November 19th 2018 can install the update due to a change in installer. Those that bought it after that will have to wait for the official update soon.

Aerosoft Seeks New Airbus Beta Testers


EDIT: It appears as though enough requests have been sent. More info here.

Over on the Aerosoft Forum, Community Manager, Mathijs Kok has made an announcement that Aerosoft is seeking for new beta testers to join the team.

Aerosoft is looking for new beta testers to assist in finding bugs and hiccups for the further development of all of their current Airbus aircraft. This team is named the Bus Beta Test Team (BBTT).

Mathijs explains that a beta testing team will eventually lose interest in their task due to the repetitive nature of flying a route over and over again in the same set of aircraft, so that means the team will eventually need to be reset.
