Support & compatibility:

The A380 has been made to be used with FS9 only, but should be fairly compatible with FSX.

Feel free to post on our forums if you encounter an issue, but do not expect support to be provided.


-- dynamic wingflex with input from several new parameters including ground spoilers, fuel load, and angle of attack
-- control surface droop when the engines are off
-- independent parallel bogies when on the ground
-- custom tire rotation code
-- animated pack vents
-- idle-reverser animation
-- ground spoilers
-- smoothed gear and flap animations
-- customised nosewheel steering animation
-- accurate aileron LAF simulation
-- custom coded engine fan start-up and shutdown animations
-- windmilling engine fans (incl. fan inertia)
-- improved antenna hiding method--alpha no longer required, thereby avoiding the "fuse hole" issue in FSX SP2
-- animated window wipers
-- animated probe sensors
-- hard coded "double strobes"

Doors operation:

Select exit (Shift + E): 1L
Tail hook up/down (not assigned to a key binding by default): all cargo doors
Wing fold/unfold (not assigned to a key binding by default): 1R, 5R, 5L
Shift + E + 2: 2L
Shift + E + 3: 1L (upper deck)
Shift + E + 4: 1R (upper deck)

Having always enjoyed flights using this aircraft in the past, I was particularly looking forward to putting it to the test with the new additions and updates that were put together. The first thing I noticed, though, was that the job done on the re-painting of this Airbus A380-800 was one of the most impressive I have seen for this aircraft itself. It captures all of those specific little features that we all love to see, ensuring that it all comes together and looks the part. This hugely impressed me to begin with but I was even more impressed by the huge range of detail that was included everywhere else – this is more than just a repaint, that’s for sure.

The installation process was another rally positive thing, as I managed to get the full project up and running in a matter of minutes. It took a few simple extractions of files to get it running, so that was a nice bonus. Additionally, although this was made for FS9 I was told it would work in FSX; and I have to say that it seems to work just fine. If you do have an issue, users at their local forums might have some answers for you.

Onto the actual aircraft, though. Its list of features was incredibly impressive, with a whole range of unique additions such as a dynamic wingflex and a control surface droop that occurs when the engines are turned off. It’s these little things that really do make all the difference, and is the most enjoyable part of the entire process for me, personally; having those little barometers that just change it from a good add-on to a great one. One thing that I especially concentrated on, though, was the fact that it had so many little animations and customized features included. From the gears and the flaps to the pack vents, everything on here actually feels alive. It might take a bit of getting used to but take nothing away from the depth and quality of the design – it really is quite phenomenal.

Add in the fact that it flies just as it should as well, with many hours’ worth of research and testing being put into this project, and it’s simple to see why this would be such a well received and effective part of any flight sim fans arsenal. It’s got quality in abundance, and manages to capture all of the good points about the aircraft making it an extremely fun aircraft to fly.

From the easy door operations that allow you to control the exit and even the fold in the wings, you’ll get access to many other passive little features such as probe sensors and window wipers working on their own in the background. These little additions really do all add up and, when you compare it to the depth and the level of detail in the model itself, you are left with a very interesting aircraft that is well worth having.

Oh, there is no cockpit? I thought it was just me having problems. Does anyone know any good FSX planes (I am mostly looking for cargo planes, DC-10, 777, or A380) with cockpits (With a small file size; I have slow internet).

eas5860Mon, 04 Feb 2019 22:57:39 GMT

Very Cool handling and graphics. But just a B747-400 Cockpit (2-D) and no Virtual Cockpit included :,(

JustAnotherPilotWed, 03 Oct 2018 00:49:15 GMT

Yeah no cockpit. Are you going to fix?

MikeTue, 18 Oct 2016 19:40:37 GMT

Luke Wed, 11 May 2016 21:53:56 GMT

PilotKidMon, 02 May 2016 19:33:38 GMT

Airplane505Sun, 15 Nov 2015 23:38:13 GMT

Yes it works. I've tried it in FSX. Should work

ToxicXGreenTue, 04 Aug 2015 05:59:43 GMT
