Aerosoft A318/9

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I would like to inquire if the Aerosoft Bus is a study level Sim or is it like the previous Airbus which they relesed before. Either way, it's a great product and Thank you Aerosoft for this. 

Regards

Aerosoft say their Airbus Professional is a casual sim but it seems study"ish" level for normal operations based on the feature list. It's definitely a lot more in-depth than their previous Airbus product, but it's still not PMDG nor FS Labs because AS don't simulate non-normal ops (failures etc).

There's a list of MCDU/FMGS new features at http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/132869-fmgs-mcdu/
And system features at http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/132870-systems/
Some stuff is missing until SP1 though http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/133133-whats-not-available-whats-wrong/

If you wait until SP1 comes out and is reviewed properly you'll have a better idea if it's deep enough for you.

It seems that you can categorize it as "study level" as long as you are talking about "Normal Procedures" and not including failures in consideration.

It has been said by real commercial pilots (Blackbox 711, I believe) who use these simulations that no airliner available is "study level" when they enter the realm of system failures.  The more failures that happen, the less "study level" they are. 

In other words, an airliner that simulates failures will not takeoff, fly or land accurately with those failures active, but under normal procedures they will be very accurate. So Aerosoft's Airbus doesn't fall short in that sense.

I hate that term so much. It's such a misnomer.

You can say that certain add-ons are high-fidelity or vary in depth, but please as a community, let's drop this term from the lexicon of simming.

Agreed. "Study-Level" is such a subjective term.

Would you say that the new AS Airbus Professional has the same features / system depth for normal ops as the previous Airbus SP3?

@Cargostorm Well no, given Aerosoft recoded some 70% of it. Find out more about some of the new features:

If in doubt, wait until some reviews come out for SP1 which will add quite a few features.

I wonder what Aerosoft means by "professional". Made by professionals? AImed at professionals (no dont think so)? 

I remember that I quite enjoyed their airbuses in FSX. 

For the moment, I fly the FSLabs a319 and I am 100% satisfied. I think there's a market for both. So let's enjoy what seems the best choice for each one of us.

They seem to be using the word "professional" on products that are developed specifically for P3Dv4. In other words, not for converted products.

I bought it and tested it. Nice for low-budget folks and beginners, but I don`t think I will touch it much also having the FSL. When the A330 comes out though...

Did you not mean P3dV4?

Although the AS bus has a checklist with copilot function to assist beginners I always fail to understand how the whole product is just something for beginners.

If I do a normal SOP flight from A to B I can push even more buttons, that are required IRL, with the the AS bus then any other P3D bus has at the moment. Sure we do not model 50.000 electrons that zip from system to system but the level of operation is nothing less than any other product. Or do you consider typing in the ZFW and ZFWCG in the AS bus different from doing it with another product for example?

 Cheers

Agreed 110%!!!

I always hated the term "Study-level". Please scratch it, from existence.

You are really one to troll Pete. You do not even own the product but have the highest post count in all related threads. 

Good for you!

when you will you lot understand what the definition of troll is.  just because you dont like my opinion that I think "causal sim" is a ridiculous buzz word , thats not trolling im afraid, thats you using a made up word because you dont  like or you dont agree with my opinion.  you can throw whatever words at me you want, I couldnt give less of a fook.  

 I dont like tomato in a sandwich, but you might.  thats doesnt mean im trolling against people that like tomato in a sandwich, you choose to like tomatoes, I dont. It really isnt a difficult concept to understand.

I own both products. FSLabs A320 blows Aerosoft out of the water. It absolutely murders it! You get what you pay for.

In what way, besides failures?  Just curious.

In fairness, it's your demeanor sometimes that brings this word into effect. Despite that, none of us are perfect and our passion for simming gets the best of us sometimes. (I've certainly shown a less than civil side here) No fooks offered. No fooks received...

In any case, you should give tomatoes a second change. They are pretty tasty at times. 😉

I`m flightsimming A320 since roughly 20 years. The diversity of RW pilots approaching A320 Addons is something between amazing and entertaining. 

Funny world indeed 😂
