Fly-by-wire fans rejoice! This add-on is a high fidelity and massively detailed rendition of the Airbus A320 and A321 for FSX: Steam Edition. Developed by Aerosoft, this add-on contains exquisite models as well as all of the systems that are used in day to day flights in the real world. The entire operating procedures of the aircraft are all present and correct, including a fully functional overhead panel and FMGS (Flight Management and Guidance System computer) and full fly-by-wire simulation.
Realistic and immersive simulation of the Airbus A320 and A321
Late model cockpit (with LCD and updated ADIRS)
Sublime modeling/texturing based on the latest technologies. Very easy on frame-rates.
Realistic lighting effects
Dozens of non-standard animations, all with sound effects (sun screens, windows, tables, tiller, jump seat, standby compass, drooping flight surfaces, etc.). All main doors and cargo hatches can be opened. Extensive options are included to toggle ground objects (cones, ground power etc.)
Detailed step-by-step manuals along with checklist and procedures
Add-in system that allows the aircraft to be extended with 3rd party applications (all using the right MCDU)
Add-in View system which adds many pre-defined views for easy use, emulates 2D panel views
Add-in Sound system: hundreds of background sounds for added immersion
Add-in Checklist system: semi-automated audio checklists
