Don't care if their links are incorrect. If the plane looks and flies as well as the video I'm buying.

The video showed nothing in terms of the quality of the flight model. A delta winged aircraft has totally different handling to a conventional aircraft.

I wonder if they had any input from real-world Concorde pilots. Essential if you’re going to get an accurate flight model. The FS Labs Concorde for FSX / P3D did have that input. It also has a fully working Flight Engineer’s panel whereas this will not be added unless there is sufficient take-up on this one.

Cant wait for this to release - even if it's not finished yet. It looks absolutely amazing, and after reading the thread about it on the .org, I'm pretty certain the developer will continue to imporve it. Colimata has issued a .pfd with a detailed description of what is, and is not, in the early access model.

It's nowhere near the FSLabs as far as system goes, in it's current state, but it will certainly look better, and hopefully perform better as well.

It was actually 3-2-1-Now. Done so everyone on the flight deck was aware the take-off had commenced as all 3 had responsibilities.

Will be following this project. The FS Labs version was really nice and I would love to have something like that in X-plane.

Anyone got it yet? I'm kind of thinking about it but early access is kind of scary.

Yeh waiting for some  reviews. I don't mind if it's not fslabs level. I want to fly the plane. Not simulate failures like a faulty pump.

It will be interesting to read how the CG is maintained from take-off after which fuel needs to be pumpred rearwards until 59% is achieved and then at ToD when it needs pumping forward again. CG is around 53% at take-off moving to 59% during cruise and then forward to around 52% on landing.

Without CG moving correctly the whole balance of the aircraft is affected. Remember, Concorde had no elevators or ailerons to maintain balance. Fuel was pumped around to maintain CG. If the model doesn't simulate this action then it won't fly correctly.

Have fun!

What they'll need is a pop-up slider to move the CG fore and aft.  Anything's possible in Flight Sim.

It has been (pre) released now. Eager Access :laugh:

....it has very limited autopilot systems.

Eeeek! It sounds like a very poor solution.
