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

-- customised nosewheel steering animation
-- accurate aileron LAF simulation
