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"

I’ve spent many hours sitting on Emirates flights, waiting for it to take me from one side of the world to the next. Regardless of what else I’ve considered about the flight, though, I’ve always found that the people are incredibly accommodating and can give me all the help that I need in settling in. furthermore, the actual flight itself is usually very comfortable and this makes it very easy to settle in. unfortunately, I can’t say the same for Emirates aircraft within flight simulators.

They feel really basic and labored and don’t have the same quality and attention to detail that the real thing does. This takes away from the entire experience for me, and can be quite damaging to the whole thing in general. However, with the help of this mod here, I was able to finally get that pristine Emirates experience that I’ve been able to enjoy so many different times in the real world.

This is based on an Airbus A380-800 and within that is one of the most impressive engines about. In terms of style and strength, it’s very impressive and gives me all the energy and power that I need to really boost through the skies. If, like me, you are a fan of powerful and effective big aircraft that feel like a freight train ripping through the skies, then you will getting your hands on this. It’s authentic, it’s powerful, and it matches the real thing in terms of dynamics. As a fan of realism in my flight simulators this was, without a doubt, one of the most impressive additions to the FSX world that I had seen in some time. It has plenty of nice graphical touches added to hl make it look realistic and true to the real thing, but it’s got far more to it in terms of the features added.

From new animations made from scratch to the improved performance thanks to new features behind added that were omitted in the past this makes it really easy for people to start controlling themselves and make sure that the aircraft feels just as they had intended it to in the beginning. From the animated pack vents to the ground spoilers, you’ll find that all of the little extras being added in here will make this feel as grand as a regal as the real thing – so for fans of authenticity, like me, this is well worth checking out.

All of the minor additions like the doors operation and other useful features are all included here, making it nice and simple for people to get themselves moving in the right direction in terms of learning how operate something like this as much as anything else. The package itself comes with so many useful little changes and additions that I really could not recommend this more to you – it’s true to the real thing and offers me that same level of professionalism and class that the real thing brings to the table.

Make sure the ATHR button is activated when you activate the speed hold button on the end of the dial (it turns dark grey).

I don't see the flight panel, when i press F10 I see a Boeing 747 panel, but on the 3D mode there is nothing. Please advice, this happened with some other models I've downloaded from you.
