Just a few days ago, Flight Factor announced they’re working on a highly detailed version of the A320 for X-Plane. This got fans excited to see what the 64-bit platform could do for the airline type. With advance features and different simulator parameters, X-Plane fans were excited to see what could be done. Luckily, we didn’t have to hold our breath long as a video showcasing the aircraft landing into Madeira was released onto Youtube.
The video not only shows the RNV approach, but also the incredible rain effects splashing against the windshield.
I’m personally not convinced by all the texturing and modelling work, but it is worth remember this is still work in progress.
Flight Factor has today announced their little secret about their Flight Factor A320 Ultimate. They have finally officially announced that they are going to create their Airbus A320 Ultimate.
Flight Factor began two years ago with a cooperation group to work on a real training sim for pilots. A simulation that has a totally different depth than their Profession series models.
After additionally two years of extra tough work FF are close to completion with their A320 model. Compared to the A350 that FF has made before this new A320 is made by a completely different team. This comes from” the real world” so to speak. The model is going to be completely different than what he have previously seen and experienced before which sounds interesting.
Previously the only Airbus A320 available for XP10 and today even XP 11 was the JARDesign A320 Neo.
Here are some of the unique features planned for release:
· Hi quality and realistic interior and exterior visual model.
· Hi quality and realistic sound pack with hundreds of sounds from the real aircraft.
· Hi quality display graphics (4K panel).
· Unique rain effects.
· Fast access popup panel system.
· Precise aerodynamical model with unique features like transonic effects, hi speed stall etc.
· Specific engine model with realistic performance and dynamics.
· Realistic simulation of transition effects, self-tests and other real aircraft undocumented features.
· Precise flight management system with full profile predictions and modes of operation.

The month of March is special for the team at FSElite, we are dedicating this month to the developers! A way of saying thanks for all the continuous development of products that really make flight simulation a truly unique and captivating experience. This article covers one of the most popular developers for X-Plane, a sim not heavily focused on here, but that’s about to change.
To the P3D/FSX community, FlightFactor might be a little shy of the limelight, but in X-Plane, they are the best in Airline simulation.
FlightFactor Aero is a team of experienced designers from across the world. It all began in 2011 when Roman, or “Ramzzess” as he is better known by in the community, and Phillip teamed up to create FlightFactor. Roman is best known for the stunning 3D modelling presented in the FlightFactor aircraft, utilizing the SASL engine to create stunning visuals and effects that bring the aircraft to life. Phillip on the other hand is better known for meticulously crafting the plugins and avionics and ultimately detailing the systems to address the hardcore sim enthusiasts.
Together, the team has over 15 years of experience creating models for X-Plane and will remain to continue creating high quality planes for X-Plane.
