This has come up several times in the last few days, including earlier today ;)It has been pushed back untill at least the 25th. I am OK waiting, as long as it is worth it when it finally arrives.Though many have announced they are waiting to purchase it till they read some reviews, based on their experience with the Airport 2000 series, I am taking a chance and have already pre-ordered it from the Avsim store.Tony

i remember reading in one thread that someone asked if there was going to be a download version of Airport 2002, is this true. I think these developers should all go the way PSS has and release downloadable versions of their softare, I don't need to pay or wait for postage, or another software box on my shelf. Plus, I've got a major failing when it comes to Flight Sim, I'm very impatient, lol.Lobaeux

Hello all,Just a quick update about Airport 2002 and all the questions you have.First, we have never come with any release date with Airport 2002. At this stage it looks like an early-mid November release in all territories (with US hopefully not delayed this time ;-))About download versions, Airport 2002 will not be available as download at this stage. The reason being the size of the files (few hundreds of Mb)!However A320 Pilot in Command will be available for download.Thanks and let me know if you have any other questions.Best regards,Michael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

Does this mean the PICA320 will now be a mid-late November release?

I guess a lot of misinformation regarding its actual release date has also come up several times in the last few days, including earlier yesterday;)

More delays :( I was counting days till the end of october :(In that time please keep us update with screenshots of Airport 2002 vol 1 and A320 PIC. Pleaaase. We ve got so many weeks till its release, and a few screenshots will keep me satisfied. Just curious to know but why is it taking so long to complete these products. Thanks :-)

Hi Michael,Regarding A320 PIC, I'm hoping the quality of the final product will be improved from the preview screenshots that you released.I won't comment on the aircraft systems because I know the designer of the panel has gone great lengths to simulate the complexity of the A320 systems. But, the artistry of the panel looks like it needs a LOT of work.To name a few things that caught my eye about the visuals of the panel/cockpit from the preview screenshots:-The panel/cockpit is much too crude. Some of the freeware VC's we are seeing today are far better.-The bright blue colour is horrendous.-Not enough textures (Every noticeable part should really receive texturing)-The upper portion of the cockpit window should be covered. At the moment, the unrealistically large cockpit windows makes it look as though the A320 cockpit has got sunroofs.'http://www.wilcopub.com/img/a320lg_102.jpg'Etc, etc....Hope something is done about that panel. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to this product.Regards,Thomas

I think if they go overboard with polygons it could loss any functionality. Also, tidying up the exterior model would be nice.I'm not expecting thousands of polygon and a super realistic "PA-system-crashing" model but....http://www.wilcopub.com/img/a320lg_100.jpgBest Regards,(I do know its a beta - yes)

"Tidying up" is a very nice way to put it. Significant revision is probably more in line with reality. Care to start a list and send it to them?Robbie

Hey as long as they're fixing stuff that was brought up when that shot was released, I'm all for the delay.The nose is way too pointy (look at the PA model for a perfect nose, even the PSS isn't as good) Also the engines just look wierd - too low to the ground and too big in circumference I think...I'd much rather wait and have em fix this stuff, especially since we won't be able to replace the visual model on this one since the VC is vital to the package...

Hi All,Regarding Airport 2002, an announcement should be coming pretty soon about it being gold (last final testing going at this stage). Hopefully still this week.About A320 Pilot in Command, screenshots released are nearly 6,7 weeks old. You can easily imagine what amount of work has been put into the product since.However it is true that most of the work lately was less cosmetic but more technical. Looking at some negative feedback we have seen on temporary texture and model, we have decided to wait a little more to release, what will be the final visual aspects of the aircraft.I am pretty sure that you should not be disappointed with the final version.Thanks againMichael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

I am willing to wait a few more weeks, as long as A320 PIC is perfect, in terms of **realisim** and eye candy.I know you will not dissapoint us.But how about some pics, even one pic, but something plzzz :)
