Airliner XP appears to be a conglomeration of Dreamfleet, FlightScenery and Reality-XP, and they're making an A320 for FS9 and FSX (A330 and A340 to follow). From the screenshots, I only have one question:

When is it going to be released?!?!?!?!  drool

This add-on is going to be amazing; they have an Aeroflot A320 Captain on the team as well - only means good things.

If this is half as good as it sounds this could be the greatest add-on we have seen yet from any company.

Going to be released Q1 2007 or at the latest Q2 2007, and I agree about the sentiment of "greatest addon we've seen yet" from what I've seen...

This will be the Airbus add-on to have by far instead of the FeelThere crap, their aircraft always lack a lot of fit and finish.

From what you've seen...meaning the overhead panel?

I'd agree it looks pretty sweet, but that's a pretty bold proclamation to be making from a few early development screenshots.

Yeah, perhaps. I see your point. However, from reading what they are doing and what kind of simulation they're creating, I'm extremely impressed and if it lives up to what they say, I rather think it WILL be the best yet.

I'm waiting for some previews of the visual model in order to make an opinion. But the panel looks pretty promising. If that's truely Dreamfleet working with FlightScenery and RealityXP, then we could expect something as high quality (if not better) as the Dreamfleet 727.

The interesting thing is that while this is the company's first product, their various components have brought us add-ons that are unarguably first rate:

Dreamfleet: B737-400 (FS2002), Baron 58, Bonanza A36, 727
FlightScenery: Providence, Portland
Reality-XP: Garmin GNS430 and 530, WX-500 weather radar, Sandel EHSI (just to name a few)

I have no reason to believe that this add-on will not be on the level of products put out by PMDG or LDS.

What's important to note there is that PMDG also has the A320 series underway. Given the level of improvement we saw in the time between PMDG's 737NG release and the 747-400 release (to say nothing of what they have in the works with their MD-11), topping whatever PMDG has in store for us with their A320 series is going to be a tall order.

Of course, a virtual cockpit with no FPS hit (  crossfingers  ) is a pretty good start.

PMDG has a lot of things underway. The MD-11 has been in production for ages, and there's still an FSX version of the 737 and 747 to put out. It could be a very long time before PMDG puts out an A320, and this one is very likely to beat it to market.

Not that PMDG isn't going to be worth it when it finally arrives, but I wouldn't be surprised if this one took the prize of best add-on for 2007.

Which will give PMDG an idea of what they're "up against".

I'll get whatever comes out first...I've been waiting for a comprehensive A320 simulation for quite some time.

Correct.. PMDG will not update the 737NG but create a whole new one for FSX!

BTW the PMDG a320 has higher chances of beating this a320 because it will probably come out later giving more developement time + PMDG is in no release date stress not to mention PSS with their oh so great 777 last year...  Silly

BTW it is reported that PMDG is the first FS developer to obtain official Airbus data that for the past years has not been given out to FS developers unlike Boeing.

Ill wait for both of them and check them out.. Big grin

Haven't seen anything that would indicate that they're leaving the 737 be (which would be a mistake in my mind).

Quoting Qantas744ER (Reply 11):

Which would add even more development time to the 320.

If they were going to come out at about the same time, then I might wait to compare them, but I doubt that's going to be the case.

Linke i said.. they are developing a full new version for FSX not just a upgrade/patch. The 737NG for FSX will be a new visual etc.

I agree, the realism and little hit to the FPS on the PVD scenery is amazing. That is what I call as real as it gets, besides a few minor issues, (only airport employees/frequent attentive flyers would notice), I have yet to see ANY scenery pay or freeware come close to this. Except maybe George Grimshaw's BOS V2.

Have yet to take a look at PDX, but it makes me wonder if i'll just be flying transcons from now on.

Let's hope this 320 is going to be as great as they say, I look forward to seeing the visual model, but the overhead panel does look very very real.

LOL, I thought the same thing when I saw this. I wish they had some external shots on their page. It'd sure make things much easier to gauge.

George also did Fly Tampa's SEA, which performs pretty comparable to BOS on my computer.

Arguably the best scenery add-on (both in terms of visuals and performance) yet. Get onboard.

After the wilco/feelthere abortion the Airliner XP is going to be a great leap forward and set the bar if all goes as planned. I am a boeing lover and I am actually looking forward to this release.

I disagree with some in that I'd prefer them to focus on the cockpit and systems rather than on making it look good from where the pilot can't see it, as long as it looks reasonable from the outside.  Smile

Agreed, you would think though looking at the screenshots that both interior and exterior will be of equal quality. They strike me as being the sort of developers that won't skimp on any particular aspect, saying that, it has happened before.

I have been waiting a while for a quality A320 to come along for FS9. I'm glad I checked here before getting the feelthere product. I've got the DF Baron and Bonanza, and I think that their work on those is top notch. At this point, I don't see how DF and Reality XP working together can miss on any aircraft they release. Reality XP gauges are incredible. The DF Baron is a worthwhile buy just to get the Sandel HSI (the version in the Baron is the best HSI for a flightsim aircraft, ever) and the GNS530.

I only hope that FS2Crew is developing an add-on for the DF A320. Is it too soon to dream about that?
