Sounds like a big improvement for a reasonable price.

For ultimate realism with the new crew bus feature it will add, I will be expecting any Etihad crew bus to completely ignore the cones on the end of the wingtip of the Thomas Cook A330 I'm working on, on stand 26 at Manchester, then back up over that cone after having dropped off the crew at the wrong gate anyway so they have to walk across several ramps to their Etihad airliner on stand 31. Then I expect the empty crew bus to reverse under the wing of an adjacent Jet 2 Boeing 737 on stand 28, backing over its port wingtip cone just missing its port wingtip whilst ignoring all the Menzies, Swissport, Dnata, Aviator, MAG and Jet 2 people on the ramps, all frantically waving their arms at the driver, giving stop signals, flashing the lights on marshaling batons, calling ground ops, beeping the horns on their EBTs, conveyors, pushback tugs etc all to no avail. If it can do that, it will be completely realistic lol..

If they can also simulated a burning tug igniting an A340 connected to it? 😱

Yes we will see, the logistics of the passengers will be interesting for sure.

I think Umberto posted some on his own forums, he was also interviewed by many live streaming guys.. So Google around and you will find soon something.

I was sitting a yard away from the FSDT booth all conference with Simbol and i can tell you from watching the demo MANY times....its going to be a MUST HAVE if you like realistic ground ops.

I never got tired of watching it hehe.

Does it bring any new features for cargo ops? Obviously jetways and pax boarding will not be required. 🤔

Looks great! Double the walking speed, though. People basically run to get on the plane from those buses IRL. These guys are moving more like they’re drugged out. 🙂

Haha, exactly what it thought. Thats always the same when i watch the animated GSX guys: bloody hell, are all they stoned or what? Like the wing walker after push back ... he's so slow someone could tie his shoelaces while he is walking 😂

Yes! I’m always tapping my fingers impatiently at him. We’ve got places to go, man!

Maybe it’s the “flight of the living dead”.   Seriously though this is a welcome addition to GSX.

I’m hoping aircraft developers start working more toward integration with GSX, especially with this version including the ability to provide power and air from the jetway.

Indeed. I am also wondering where they lost their hand luggage. 😀

I was able to experience some of the new features in GSX (and beyond) in person and Umberto and crew have made some very very impressive steps forward in the "total experience" beyond passenger loading.  The path finding coding complexity is impressive especially when you factor in all the aircraft and airport variants on a Global scale.

Cheers, Rob.

I hate to say it but I have been very critical about FSDT's Couatl but I don't think something like this would be possible without it...

Well Woozie, if they start banging on the flightdeck door looking for those, they will be sadly disappointed!

Wow that is almost unreal.... 

Looks great if not a little Zombie Nation. I think we all move a bit faster than that when boarding/ de-boarding.
