FlyByWireSim Updates A32NX to v0.3.0 for MSFS

Flybywiresim A32nx Msfs Update (1)

A collaboration of developers are continuing to update the default A320Neo for Microsoft Flight Simulator. As we have reported over time, the development team known as FlyByWireSim has spent time creating a more realistic and accurate rendition of the aircraft type for the simulator. Today, version 0.3.0 has been made available for anyone looking to download.

From our count on the changelog on Github, we see over 70 new features or changes have been added since the last release, along with a vast list of other changes. Some of the more significant changes with the update include the all-new cockpit textures and lighting that has been developed for the A32NX. Display backlights have also been added, along with changes to the external lights. Beyond cockpit lighting and textures, brand new functionality to the ECAM has been added including new memos for the GPWS Flap 3 mode, wing anti-ice and engine anti-ice, along with many more. New developments have also taken place in the MCDU, the overhead panel and numerous buttons now function compared to the default aircraft.

FlyByWireSim has also included a range of quality of life improvements, also. Many of the changes are a direct result of bug reports submitted by the community and shows the team’s commitment to the project and bettering the aircraft for the community. The whole changelog can be read here and filtered to your liking.

The project itself is being completed by a large number of people who are all working to making the A32NX as good as possible and is available for anyone who has Microsoft Flight Simulator.

If you’re keen to learn more, you can head on over to the FlyByWireSim Discord channel. Otherwise, head over to the Git repository to download version 0.3.0 and start flying with the modded A320Neo in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Thanks to Inaxair for the tip.
