Editorial

As an aircraft I’ve never had much time with in the past, the Airbus A400M was something that struck me as quite interesting to try out. So when I see that we had this brilliant file on the library, it felt like the perfect time to try it out and finally see what I made of this arm of the Airbus family. In short, I have to say that I was massively impressed with this design and this style of aircraft. It’s relatively quick, easy enough to control, looks great and really acts out the whole strength and style of the Airbus chain perfectly – what was not to like?

Preview screenshot

Well, first off, I noticed just how incredibly easy it was to get this installed. The hallmark of a good FS file is when you can install it in a matter of moments, so you need to just get used to doing this and you’ll really start to benefit moving forward.

This comes equipped with a brilliant virtual cockpit, for a start, that helps to compliment the style and the format of the Airbus perfectly. Indeed, with the addition of the radar, the maps, the new HUD and even the TCAS guides you will find that flying this and getting it down to an art form is a lot easier than it might seem at this moment in time. The cockpit, though, is arguably the most impressive part of the whole thing as it gives you such a realistic representation of what the real thing would have inside.

The modelling is massively impressive, too. It was made using GMax and because of that it has lots of the little attention to detail parts that many others seem to miss in their modelling. From the scale and color of the textures to the size and effect of the wheels and the rotors, you are getting a smooth and realistic rendition of this aircraft whilst ensuring you have all of the help that you could possibly need in getting to grips with this aircraft and thoroughly enjoying the way that it looks.

This file does a great job of really just capturing this aircraft. I’ve since done my research to find out what it has in store for people, and I can safely say that this is one of the most exciting members of the Airbus family to try out – not sure what you want to fly today? Then I heartily recommend that you download this and put it to the test.

I love the look and feel of this aircraft as it’s just so incredibly nimble for something its size – it really is a bit of a paradox! That being said, it’s the most fun I’ve had in a larger aircraft for some time and would recommend that anyone who is into this kind of aircraft tries this out as soon as they can.

Looks great flies great. Only thing I found that didn't work is the speed hold. Which is no problem otherwise a great airplane thanks for the build.
