Exciting times today! We’re happy to announce that we have released our long awaited A300-600R Airliner for Microsoft Flight Simulator!
• Detailed custom FMS with SIDs, STARs, SEC flight plan, custom VNAV and LNAV, altitude and speed constraints and holds
• Independent FMS with state-of-the-art high-resolution cockpit displays
• Custom system rendition including bespoke hydraulic, electrical, pressurisation and fuel operation including unique A300-600R trim tank functionality
• Cautions and warnings triggered by poor maintenance
• Realistic RNAV and autoland capability modelled
• Unique behavioural characteristics of the A300-600R simulated throughout each system for the most excellent immersive experience
• Extensively tuned flight model to capture A300-600R characteristics including accurate performance; landing and takeoff behaviour
• Accurate rendition of General Electric GE CF6-80C2A1 [Pratt and Whitney PW4158 variant engine coming soon!]
• Custom maintenance functions: Engine oil levels, APU oil level, Hydraulic fluid level, wheel brake wear and tire wear
Outstanding Visual Fidelity
• New and optimized PBR textures up to 8K quality. With performance texture packs available for lower-end systems via iniManager
• A reworked 3D cockpit model and new exterior of the A300-600R (Passenger) and A300-600RF (Freighter) variants
• A plethora of easter eggs and eye candy associated with maintenance options and other abnormal situations. (brake wear indicators, fuel panel, openable APU cowling, openable engine cowlings [GE ONLY], APU Mechanic, visible tire wear, RAT, reactive windshield rain)
• Realistic door arming simulation with emergency slides modelled on passenger variant only.
• Authentic WWise soundset with full 3D environment using recordings from the real aircraft
• Advanced implementation of sound environments for the exterior, cabin, and cockpit, creating an immersive audio experience
• Authentically modelled the CF6s “Buzzsaw” sound dynamically balanced depending on N1
• Feature-rich onboard Electronic Flight Bag (EFB); including Navigraph and SimBrief integration, performance calculators, load manager & panel state save functionality
• Basic iniBuilds ground handling set (freighter stairs, chocks, ground power unit)
• Pre-set cargo loads with visual models (racing team charter, horse stable transport, cargo transport, aero parts, humanitarian charter, postal freight)
• Please note the PW, IDC (CPDLC/ACARS functionality) will come in an update and is not present on launch V1
