Aerosoft’s A330 for MSFS nearing completion, release likely this summer

Aerosoft has been working for a very long time on its highly-anticipated simulation of the Airbus A330 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The wide-body airliner is one of the most interesting projects currently in development for the simulator, despite some apprehension from a spectrum of simmers who have some doubts about the developer’s goals with the project. The level of depth and detail that will feature in the Aerosoft A330 is still to be determined, but it’s safe to say that it won’t be up to the high realism of the PMDG 737 or the Fenix A320. Mathijs Kok, Project Manager at Aerosoft, has continuously said that they aim to deliver the experience of an airline pilot’s day-to-day job, rather than simulating the aircraft itself. As a result, they focus more on daily procedures, like opening the flight deck door, rather than rare events like N1 spiking. “I simply have no idea what a ‘study level’ aircraft is. Honestly. No idea. I see it used a lot by marketing departments and YouTubers but I never see a real pilot calling any DLC ‘study level’.” He said this week in the company’s official forums. He added that even if they spent another […]

iniBuilds releases New York-JFK International Airport for MSFS

Roland Laborie releases the Airbus A400M for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft Flight Simulator simmers can now add a new military transport aircraft to their virtual fleet, thanks to developer Roland Laborie, who released this weekend the Airbus A400M. The developer, whose work in MSFS has already brought us the Canadair CL-415 and the Vought Crusader F-8E, promises a native MSFS model for the A400, with a fully interactive virtual cockpit and a good variety of real-world liveries. The Airbus A400M is a high-wing aircraft with four propeller engines, a pressurized cabin, and a rear cargo door. With a maximum payload of 37 tonnes and a range of approximately 3,300 kilometers, it can reach speeds of up to 780 kilometers per hour. The A400M is a versatile aircraft designed for strategic and tactical transport, as well as a tanker, capable of carrying personnel and materials in various configurations. Laborie’s A400M for MSFS boasts a complete model, fully animated virtual cockpit, and external model. The package also includes 3D modeled displays (PFD, MFD, AP, Terrain Follow, MCDU), electrical (AC/DC), hydraulics, air conditioning, pneumatics, HUD-autopilot-autothrottle, and 15 high-resolution liveries. The Airbus A400M is available for purchase on SimMarket for €30.00 (+ VAT where applicable). However, potential buyers should be aware that the quality and […]
