In a surprise Facebook post, developer ToLiss has announced that they are bringing the A321 to X-Plane 11.
Announcing that the plane has just entered the pre-release beta phase, the developer said the plane is coming in early 2020. Following the announcement, we spoke to a member of the development team who provided FSElite with additional information. They confirmed that the aircraft will come with both IAE and CFM engines, along with sharklets, fences and SATCOM varients. It was also confirmed that the NEO, LR and XLR variations are on the roadmap but no timeframe at this stage.
We were also given some additional screenshots of the aircraft from the simulator.
While details in the post are scarce, the fact that the plane is already in a pre-release beta phase indicates development on this project has been ongoing for a while. Following the success of their A319, the 321 promises to be another great addition to the X-Plane hangar.
We will continue to bring you details as they emerge over the coming weeks.
