We all know about the Concorde going bye bye, But why didn't Microsoft put an Airbus on FS2002, I am sick of flying Lears, and Boeings, Give us an Airbus where we can actually use the joystick and make us believe we are actually in an Airbus, What do you think guys??? I know there are the downloadable Airbuses, but I want an Airbus from MS already on there.

You could fly an Airbus. Just download it and the panel.

Oh, Ok,... I see what Jason is trying to say. Being that they are based in Seattle, They only put Boeing Aircraft. Well That is just wrong. There are Airlines out there who do fly Airbuses  Angry

I know what you mean. Afterall, the Concorde was a European built aircraft, so there is all reason to put an Airbus in there. I don't think it has to do with being in WA. I know what you mean with the joystick too. Of course, I still like FS2k2. By the name of JetBlue, it looks like you would really like an airbus  Smile being that they are mostly airbus.

Hey! Because Boeing is American and so is 'Microsoft' they see Airbus as there arch-rivals obviously! I think it sucks too that they have no Airbuses, they beat Boeing by far.....Bring on the A330-200  Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

Boeing and the Concorde aren't/weren't in direct competition, where Airbus and Boeing are. If Microsoft said they wanted to put an Airbus in FS, Boeing would probably destroy the contract with MS, thus saying that they can't put the 737,777,747 in the game. Probably in the contract saying that MS can't put Airbus AC in.

Just my thoughts!

Hey, just download an Airbus panel, and Airbus aircraft and some airbus soundfiles. Without any doubt, they're better than the standard aircraft included in MS Flight simulator. It has always been this way...

I wonder if they'll end up putting the A380 in, since it's gonna be the largest A/C ever...

Although they just did get the 747 in the game.

I am sure that Microsoft will offer an Airbus add on package for about 60 bucks or so.

I bet if Airbus paid MS more money, that they would ditch Boeing. I really don't like how Boeing is trying to monopolize not only the market, but also trying to monopolize COMPUTER GAMES. There are people in Europe who play this game. As with what DAVID VENZ of Airbus Industrie says. "The 747 is OLDER than Airbus Industrie. It's time for a new airplane, with state of the art technology built from the wheels up, and that is what is going to happen with the A3XX (A380)."

Yes that would be nice for a little change on FS. Maybe on the next FS.  Smile (The FS.com d-loads of Airbuses are better anyway) Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Was that a joke, or are you really serious? Airbus is a European company, not American. Boeing is American, and so is Microsoft, get the picture?

I really don't like how Boeing is trying to monopolize not only the market, but also trying to monopolize COMPUTER GAMES.

LOL, thanks for that laugh.

That statement is laughed at by many. The 747 may be an old design, but a lot of the 747s flying today are not old planes. State of the are technology from the wheels up? Uhhh, duh, look at the 747-400 and the 777.


You seem to be dreaming here.

Anyway, the default MS aircraft are usually crap compared to the ones you can get from the web, so why do you care so much?

Rgds.......

Errr quit your whining and download it from FS.com, their better looking, feature real airlines, and in some cases fly better.

People are saying its the American thing that it's all Boeing, lets not kid our selfs Boeing just has more aircraft out in the field its like me complaining that Cessnas, they only do that because they pay them, it should be all Pipers. Wrong Cessnas are more prevalent and will probally always will be, personally I prefer Pipers, but most people will get their flight training in a Cessna, its the same thing with the Boeings.



At worst, you screw up and die.

It's a pity, because the Airbuses have more advanced systems to simulate, in particular the flight envelope protection system and auto trim - which noone has been able to effectively replicate in FSIM. I don't want to start an Airbus/Boeing war, but the automatic systems would be interesting - especially for people first getting used to FS flying.

But, generally speaking the MSFS flight models for the airliners are quite pathetic. Absolute crap for the engines - the spool speeds are back to front (should be very slow initially, then fast once inertia is overcome) and the thrust output at low N1s is far too low - taxi in a real jet is conducted at near idle - ie 23 odd N1.

Cheers,

Justin

There are diffrent levels of design, there intial specs (use basic drag, thrust, lift charectics), then you go in detail and start designing each individual parts.

744 uses the basic design of the 747 but its was redesigned. Thats from the engineering classes that I am taking.



At worst, you screw up and die.
25 Ajaaron : I don't know about anyone else, but I know a fully laden 747 does not take off and accelerate to 500kts in one minute and reach 10,0000ft MS really ha
26 PPGMD : Did you alter the cfg because I was told the default isn't fully loaded.
27 Post contains images Baec777 : I have downloaded couple airbuses like 320s, 330s, 340s.. it cool... like Cathay Pacific was cool & Virgin Atlantic on a A343, and Sabena on a A330, B
28 Post contains images Skystar : Remember that rated TO thrust is actually developed at just over 90N1 in the MS2002 models. Full throttle gives you far more thrust. You can use AirEd
29 Post contains images MIAspotter : Dude like everyone her stated there are thousands of Airbuses to download on the net that are faaaaar better than the default M$ crap. the default air
