Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Airbus A380
published in 2004 comes this newly enhanced FSX compatible
version. And it's also every bit as exciting as flying the
double-decker monster of an aeroplane at Mach .8...
new version of the A380 Airbus add-on for Microsoft
Flight Simulator now includes four different models of
the world's latest super jumbo. The Airbus A380 was designed
to be the largest passenger aircraft ever right from the start.
The newly designed Model 900 can be outfitted to carry an
incredible 650 passengers up to 7800 miles.
A380 Airbus: The Special Edition allows you to climb
into the cockpit and fly this huge and exciting aircraft.
Flight sim developer, Tolga Piskin, has recreated four models
of the Airbus A380 for this FSX and FS2004 package:
the 700, 800, 800f and the 900. In
addition, graphic artists Garry J Smith and Ed Knapp have
carefully reproduced the many liveries of the A380 launch
game's onboard Flight Management Computer (FMC) makes this
massive aeroplane easier to handle by literally flying your
chosen route for you. Being exceptionally user-friendly, with
just one click you can load a flight plan into the computer
and the FMC is ready to go.
Airbus: The Special Edition also includes enhanced scenery
of Toulouse Airport, home town of the Airbus factory, replete
with custom AI traffic. Including impressive attention to
detail from the cockpit through to the landing gear.
included are: Airbus House Colours, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa,
Qantas, KLM, China Southern, Air France, Virgin Atlantic,
Thai, British Airways and Korean Airlines.
you already own the A380 Airbus release, you might
like to take a look at this game before you part with your
cash. You do get a nice collection of aircraft - four in total
- and a great selection of different liveries to choose from.
But you have to ask yourself whether these are worth £20.
I have to conclude that it is worth buying. The aircraft look
great - especially the cockpits - and the engine sounds are
nice and meaty. As with all new planes, they take a little
getting used to, but if you are prepared to put in the hours
you will be well rewarded.
you are a dedicated Flight Sim fan, then you'll want
to add this to your collection.
