Designed to be a competitor to the Boeing 777-200, Airbus Industries has out done itself creating a beautiful and fuel efficient flying machine capable of delivering passengers in safety and comfort well into the 21st Century and possibly beyond. Included in this package you will find the Airbus House scheme, With and without SATCOM, Air Canada, Cathay Pacific and Scandinavian Airlines, SAS - with SATCOM, liveries. All textures have been modified in DXT-3 format for crisp visuals without comprimising frame rates. The panel has been aliased to the FS-X default Airbus A321, due to no A330 panel available for FS-X to date. A magnificient A330 sound package has been included for authenticity. This file is for FS-X only.

Editorial

As a big fan of Airbus aircraft, I decided to download this take on the Air Canada, Cathay Pacific and Scandinavian Airlines mod to see what I thought of it. I hadn’t used this particular Airbus model in a while so it seemed like a good place to start – so, what did I think?

Detail

The level of detail on each of the models is very impressive, with a huge amount of improvements being added to each texture. They tend to carry all of the typical hallmarks that you will find with this kind of mod, giving you something interesting and unique that is very easy to get to grips with in terms of how it looks; none of the designs are hard to understand or to look at. They are all relatively simple but this is no bad thing; this is authenticity at its best.

The level of detail is great as is the scale and size of each of the logos on each aircraft. They all fit within the realms of what they should look like and this naturally creates a much more enjoyable design and look, making the aircraft far more comfortable to actually start flying with in the first place.

All of the textures have been modified, changed and improved to work with DXT-3 format to offer a high-end visual output without hampering your level of performance. Frame rates are not going to drop with this unless you are using a relic of a machine!

Performance

This uses the same normal models you won’t really see any kind of improvement in the way that the aircraft flies, but one thing which can help performance improvements kick into place comes from the new sound package which has been added in. These are deeply authentic and manage to really capture the element of precision that you would expect to find within the cockpit.

However, the reason that this increases performance is because having the according sounds with whatever action you take helps you learn what sound mean what. This will help you become a more rounded pilot in time, giving you something which really will help you understand where you are and what is going on with the aircraft at all times.

This naturally gives you a fresh and interesting aircraft that is easy to fly, and one that I would recommend any fans of the Airbus series try out if, for nothing else, its authenticity and careful approach in design.

no virtural cockpit, all the autopilot works accept heading and nav holds. without that this plane really isn't very good. not bad body or anything, just unfinished computer controls.
