I have been flying PMDG’s Boeings for many years now and to be honest I was getting bit bored with them. So naturally a good Airbus simulation is always going to be the preferred option but nothing has been made that is on the level of complexity or detail that has been done by PMDG. That is until FSLabs made this A320.
Every switch, knob, light and system is simulated in grand detail. Even the various computers are simulated. The sounds are fantastic and really add to the immersion. The flight model as you can imagine is rendered in excruciating detail. The outside visuals are not that important to me. For me it’s the systems and then the learning process you have to go through to understand them.
Putting all this together and then flying using the checklists etc is relatively easy but throw in some AI traffic with a realistic ATC system (Radar Contact) and real weather you now have quite a challenge.
This aircraft is an absoloute joy to fly and I am getting a lot out of it.
The price makes the eyes water a bit £99………..ouch!
