Editorial

As someone who has enjoyed many a flight on the Airbus A321 I was immediately intrigued to try this out, especially given that it was for FS2004. Due to life commitments I’m on the road a lot at present so I’m using my older laptop which can only handle FS2004.

So I’ve been collecting classy models and packages to try out and this immediately caught my eye. It was a fresh, engaging and interesting take on the BA edition of this aircraft and a frequent flyer of this particular model once upon a time I thought it was only be right to try it out!

The Detail

The level of detail is something that greatly impressed me. For an older model this coms with all of the usual features like animated control surfaces as well as wing views and flaps. Additionally, you get access to reflective textures /w dynamic shine as well as highly detailed extras and minor features along the way.

The whole package feels exceptionally like the real thing, from the layout of the cockpit to the way that it actually handles itself in the air. From the designers point of view I would have to say that the detail they have included is about as authentic as you are likely to find with one of these packages.

One thing that really impressed me about the update was the use of full lighting – it’s a rarely used feature in many mods, but one that makes a MASSIVE difference. I no longer found myself having to use artificial light sources or putting the brightness to unrealistic levels anymore thanks to the improvements that this makes to the original design.

The Realism  

The functionality of the aircraft was just as impressive, though. It seals the whole image together and also ensures that you have far less time to worry about operating everything on its own merits. By blending together the whole aircraft in this way the entire thing feels like it moves as one. Whilst some mods do a great job of making you realise its all separate pats, this has no problem at all in commanding a respected and impressive range of features.

Each of these goes a long way to helping you understand just what makes this aircraft such a fun thing to fly – from the paint scheme that was used to the way it performs. Everything included in here is very useful to have included in your simulation experience and will hopefully help you understand just how much fun it can be to fly around in an aircraft like this.

For a part of aviation history that is well worth celebrating, you should try this out.

Superb looking plane on the outside, shame about the 737 panel on the inside, but still a fantastic addon!!!
