Aerosoft A319 and Virtual Avionics CDU

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

 

Is any of you who already bought the Aerosoft's A318/A319 using it with the excellent Virtual Avionics CDU?

Before I buy the AS baby buses I would like to know if the A320 CDU is working with it.

I have sent an inquiry to Virtual Avionics but got no reply.

 

Thanks a lot in advance,

Robert

I wrote to them on 24 Sept. and their reply was:-

 

We are still working on the analysis of the implementation needed, but it's likely that it will support in the near future.

 

Thanks and best regards,

I do hope that they release it soon as their CDU for the A320 is excellent on the iPad.

Thak you very much for your replies!

So generally the news is bad at the moment but there is hope for near future.

 

Since I got the CDU (for NGX, 777 and A320) simming without it seems so... limited. :smile:

BTW I've heard they are considering Q400 too. That will be awesome, won't it?

Aerosoft airbus  has its own CDU that runs on Tablets. Why do you want a third party product?

I gave up with the Aerosoft CDU as it was slow on my system and always giving me graphic problems. It seemed to run in a browser and I was never happy with it although this may have been due to the fact that I am a P3Dv2 user. The Virtual Avionics CDU on the other hand was a joy to use, never had a problem with it and it complemented the Aerosoft A320 perfectly.

Since it is so much better.

One of the best money spent on simming for me.

It's out now! :good:

 

You need to update your CDU and download /install the latest version of the VA Interface.

Enjoy, just as I am going to do today!

 

EDIT:

Sorry to be a (too) early bird but I cannot get it working at the moment.

Looks like I am unable to update the CDU even though I was notified via email I could do it.

I will keep you informed here and I am kindly asking others to say how you are going with it.

My CDU app has been has been updated to version 1.1 but the new VA control panel, version 2.6.14 is not seeing my iPad. Note I run P3DV2.3. :unsure:

Yes, something's still wrong. I'm on FSX. I have now been able to update to 1.1.0.

But this time I am getting a 'Not able to perform CDU data link...' message no matter what I do.

I have sent another support ticket. Is anyone around able to use the CDU with A319?

 

EDIT: I've just got a reply from Virtual Avionics.

Looks like the culprit is the fact Aerosoft are releasing their hotfixes which change some data interacting with the VCDU.

The Virtual Avionics promised to do their best to work out a solution for next week. Great support from them!

The very latest great news is... well... let me quote the email I've just got:

 

Hello Captain,
A new VAInterface release 2.6.15 is available on our Download page, which supports the latest hot-fix from Aerosoft.
You must, however, download and install the latest hot-fix: 1_02.c
Should you have any issues, as you already know, please open a new support ticket.
 
Best Regards,
VA Support

 

What else to say? An example to follow.

Long live Virtual Avionics!  :good:

Unfortunately after installing the latest official A318/319 version 1.10/SP1, the virtual CDU seems to have stopped working again.

Aaargh, I wish there was some kind of professional communication between Aerosoft and Virtual Avionics.

 

Time to wait for another patch...

Thanks for your link, Mas.

 

I am surprised reading what Emanuel wrote.

Looks like there is some kind of communication problem on the Virtual Avionics side. Too bad.

Let's hope the problem is solved soon. I've so far had two flights after the SP1 update and I am alreading missing my CDU.

I'm baffled every time these things occur... But I rely on common sense with both VA and Aerosoft, so I trust we'll have this issue sorted out soon..

The new VA Interface 2.6.17 is already available on the VA website.

And the best news: it is working! :smile:

 

I didn't get an email notification this time, so I discovered it after my flight.

Tomorrow there is going to be a CDU Sunday afternoon, lol.

Can anyone verify that 2.6.18.12313 (current version of VAInterfaceLite) works with the the Aerosoft A320/A319/A318? Or are they still working the communications issues out?

 

VAInterface detects P3D, but I can't connect to the A320. 777/737 works fine.

Looks like the Virtual CDU is not working with Aerosoft's latest A320/A321.

Can anyone confirm? I tried to contact VA support but their support ticket button is not working for me today.

EDIT: let me answer my own question.

 

I used the regular email contact form at Virtual Avionics and already got a reply, most interesting part of which is:

'W​e are working on updating VAInterface to support the new A320 and expect to release it no later than the this week's end'

 

Once again I am full of admiration for the way Virtual Avionics treat their customers. :good:
