New Aircraft Payware Add-on In The Pipe Line?

Hi

Does anyone know of any up and coming pay ware add-on aircraft on its way for FSX? I know in the distance (a line distance) PMDG is redoing their wonderful Boeing 737NG series of aircraft – but are there any other companies out there planning anything new? Level-D?

I did hear at one point of a company producing an Airbus A320, but I lost the website!

If anyone knows of any (even if they are still months/years away) please let me know what type and where to find them.

Many Thanks

KimberlyRJ

Airsimmer is making an A320. I don't know when it's due out. But it looks to be a very high end simulation on par with PMDG..

They're keeping that very close to their chests but it seems to be in the latter stages now.

I hope so.

I understand the issue with building Airbus aircraft for FS is that Airbus are not as helpful in releasing information as Boeing is. I must admit I would be suprised if it was as good as PMDG, but I hope to God that someone finally can produce an Airbus aircraft for FS that is good and stable!

I suspect the Airbus "issue" is more to do with how differently FBW Airbuses behave from the way MSFS expects them to. I didn't see any mention of the information having been hard to get.

Having followed the development and seen the videos, I wouldn't. As long as it sees the light of day, it will be superb.

I should have added that the AirSimmer 320 will be released for FS9 first and FSX later - presumably because FSX didn't exist when they started development and the FS9 version can't just be recompiled/converted for FSX.

Who knows when it will finaly come out, but Alphasim is wouking on a C-17 thats said to be pretty high end. Not to the PMDG level but a better flight deck than any other military aircraft. (Other than Falcon 4.0  yes  )

I can add that all the developper groups have finally understood most of the FSX specific secrets, are working very hard now on exclusively FSX products and the next two years will see bunches of great products, from bush planes over GA, military up to the big irons. Just check simflight regularily, they have almost all the product on sales.

The jump in "technology" between FS9 and FSX certainly seems to have hindered 3rd party development. On the plus side, the apparent hold in FS development (and let's hope that's all it is) should allow more time for 3rd party developers to catch up.

Exactly. It took about 2 years until the addon market for FSX became bigger then the one for FS9, and just now after 3 years the FS9 market disappears. ( Below 10% ).

Making an addon for FSX is more complex than making it for FS9, so the last thing we could need is another Flight Simulator within the next 3 or 4 years.

Looks very good. However, after a few years of PMDG's 737NG, 744 and 744X, I desperately want a good Airbus add-on.  Smile

I was speaking with several aircraft developers last weekend in Paderborn. The general conclusion is that many internal functions in MSFS about airliners are very Boeing specific hard coded, so that Airbus specific solutions cannot be implemented. This will need a completely new simulator, not based on any Microsoft code.

I don't know about FSX but AirSimmer seem to have got around that in FS9, though they have apparently had to do a lot of their own programming "outside" of MSFS.

I cannot comment if they came as near to the real Airbis as PMDG comes to the real 747, but do not doubt they made a very good job.

When will the Airsimmer A320 be available? I am amazed to be quite honest. I am not an Airbus fan really "I live by the saying if its not Boeing I'm not going  Wink" but this simulator looks great! Thanks for sharing it with us.

The FS9 version must be "nearly ready". They're into final testing. I guess it depends how the testing goes.

As I have said in another thread it is my belief that those figures are distorted by dual compatibility software sales being assumed to be exclusively for FSX use. Many of us out here have bought new products that are FSX & FS9 compatible but solely use them in FS9.

I am very encouraged to see Airsimmers are going to launch their A320 as both FSX and FS9 versions.

Developers who think FS9 is dead and buried are simply not listening to the market.

FYI, the Basic version of AirSimmer's A320 (for FS9 only) appears to be available now:

http://www.airsimmer.com/products.htm

Be warned that there's no guarantee you'll be able to upgrade from Basic to Advanced - they haven't decided yet.

I think I'm probably going to go for the Basic version for FS9 now and then the Advanced version for FSX when it's available.

Well PMDG released their BAe JS4100. Supposedly they are going to make a Dash 8 along with the 737NGX.
www.precisionmanuals.com

Captain Sim released the 767. If you like their products then that will be a plus for you!
www.captainsim.com

Wilco redid their ERJ series and released both FS9 and FSX models. I might consider that.
www.wilcopub.com

Carenado is working on a Beech Bonanza which seems promising. They also just released a Piper Saratoga for FSX. If you enjoy flying GA airplanes, like myself, check them out.
www.carenado.com

Dream Fleet was supposed to be working on a DC-8, but it seems like they may have gone under. I hate to assume, but it sure seems like it.

Any other new releases??
