Do not think that gliders are boring and silent machines. The Discus is capable of speeds, altitudes, range and aerobatics that make most GA aircraft envious. Of course you can choose to make flights of many hours but you can also find some ridge lift and play around for a while. The Aerosoft Discus is a high end simulation of a high end glider.

The Discus is a Standard Class glider created by Schempp-Hirth. It was produced in Germany between 1984 and 1995 and around 850 aircraft are still flying. It is still produced in the Czech Republic in low numbers. With its distinctive swept back leading edge it was rather revolutionary when it was produced and it totally dominated the standard class sailplane racing throughout the 1980s and won the 1985, 1987 and 1989 World Gliding Championships.

Though it is no longer a top contender for the prices (the progress in gliders in the last 10 years is nothing short of amazing), it is still a high performance glider with a 42 to 1 glide ratio. The good natured flight characteristics made it a perfect club glider for the experienced gliders. The later models (though many are retrofitted) had winglets that made the performance and handling better. In Europe it is one of the most prolific gliders and it is very typical of gliders that the thousands of enthusiasts fly every weekend.

The Aerosoft Discus has been create with help from Schempp-Hirth and without a doubt it is the first true high end glider add-on for FS. From the flight models that is near perfect (do note we never used these words for any product before) to the C4 Flight Computer that is the heart of the instruments it is all so accurate that we feel 100% confident to provide the customer with the 'real' manuals, of course with permission of the copyright owners. There are ten models included but they can be divided into three base models. We got four B models that are pure gliders, four BT models that got a small engine that allows the pilot to cruise between thermals and two BM models that allow the pilot to take off on its own power. All ten models got different flight models. As FSX does not allow any motorized aircraft to be air towed we even include the very realistic WinchX! add-on that simulates a which launch down to the smallest details. This is a very complete project that will give you all options modern glider pilots got.

Features:

  • Fully professional development (over 20 months).
  • Ten high detail models (for example just the VC of the BT model has 146384 polygons, more than double of what FS2004 could compile) using all the FSX options.
  • Highly advanced flight models that are accurate even in spins and other no standard attitudes.
  • Over 100 non standard sounds (like flying with open windows, side slips, pending stalls etc) all triggered by FSX variables and conditions using Aerosoft Sound Control.
  • Full working water ballast system.
  • Two Static ports (with selector) to avoid problems when using the auxiliary engines.
  • Dozens of non standard animations, up to elements that move under high G load.
  • Very realistic flexing wings created with a new technology.
  • All instruments accurate, including TEC and NETTO variometers. Not like this simplified gauges in the default glider in FSX.
  • Real usable yaw string that will make coordinated flight a lot easier.
  • All models include a highly realistic C4 Flight Computer that allows then pilot to calculate ideal speeds and routes.
  • Includes a licensed copy of Winch X! .
  • Designed with full support of Schempp-Hirth, SDI Variomers and the SOAR online glider community.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE AIRPORTS X FSX P3D
Holden Riley
This is far and away my favorite scenery addon ever. I grew up in Seattle, and have spent more of my time at KPAE and KBFI, PAE in particular, than any other place in the city over the years. For a long time, the three Boeing west side facilities have been severely lacking in the flight sim world, something that left a big gap in my simming experience as I regularly do test flights and delivery flights (as observed by myself and taught to me by Boeing test crews) but always in poor, unrealistic default scenery. But now, Drzewiecki Design has created my home field (KPAE) as well as the two other Boeing west side facilities, KRNT and KBFI, plus Auburn Airport (S50) in stunning detail! The accuracy of these airports is simply breathtaking as I see my home brought to life in the sim world. I can even visit my flight school at Paine Field with their real storefront and self pump station! This package blends seamlessly with their Seattle City X package and both packages have outstanding performance and visuals. Special thanks to Drzewiecki Design for this long awaited and much appreciated package!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FSX P3D
Holden Riley
Extremely accurate rendition of the city I grew up in. Fantastic performance and suitable in all sims from FSX to P3D V4, and an X-Plane version is on the way (separate from this). It's an astonishing coverage area of the entire I5 Corridor of the Puget Sound. My only complaint is that the winter textures are not as high quality as the other seasons, but it is a minor detraction. It looks amazing and plays well with all my other addons including Taxi2Gate's KSEA in P3D V3 and P3D V4 as well as Orbx PNW. Amazing work to Drzewiecki Design. I couldn't be happier.
