Airblue Airbus A319-112, registration AP-BIF. Virtual Airblue in association with Virtual PIA proudly presents the Project Airbus A319-112 in Airblue colors for FSX. Airblue is a Pakistan based LCC that operates throughout the Middle East and to Europe, besides several domestic operations. This aircraft, previously operated by Skybus (USA) was acquired by Airblue after the former airline went bust. This aircraft wears the registration AP-BIF. The repaint features accurately placed titles and photoreal tail texture adopted from a photograph. The registration appears on top of the right wing and the bottom of the left wing, and an Airblue logo appears on the top of the left wing and the bottom of the right one. The Pakistani flag is placed next to the doors as well. This FSX model by Project Airbus features accurate dynamics plus four opening passenger doors and two cargo doors. Repaint by Ahmed Ahsen from Virtual PIA (VPIA) and Virtual Airblue.

Background Information

Project Airbus was born in the mist of flight simulation’s golden era, at a time when all add-on production was taking a turn to supreme accuracy and evolved from sheer simplicity to authentic flight recreation.

In early 2002, Trevor Slack came across Thomas Ruth’s website, while his A300 was still in production. Trevor had the benefit to beta test Thomas?creation and they constantly exchanged ideas and information, so to end up naming their effort “Project Airbus,?and soon after, with the texturing assistance of Nicholas Wu, the A300 became the first group’s big hit. The number of variables they had managed to incorporate into the model was almost revolutionary and never seen before in the flight simulator scene.

In the meanwhile, a lot of people were inclined to help the group’s effort and names such as that of Thomas Kwong, Alexander Kvitta, Peter Binamira, Michael Karam, Gianmarco Bettiol or Micheal Theriault were written down PA’s book. The A320 was another success ?and the last for quite some time. It also included many new features and was widely regarded as simply the best A320 flight simulator rendition available at that point in time.

The group went through a rough patch in late 2003 and early 2004 and was commonly decided that there was a break. However, a proposal to revive the group with new blood and projects was welcomed and work on the new version of the A320 began.

Three years later, the A320 has been finally released and Project Airbus has a lot more up its sleeve for the future!

For now, we hope you take your time at enjoying our current recreation, as that is the first and foremost stimulus in freeware add-on production.
