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.

FSIMSTUDIOS - TOCUMEN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MPTO PANAMA CITY FSX P3D
Peter Gordon
It's great to have such a large airport from Central America and FSimStudios have modeled it as it will be when completed. I am happy with the purchase and I'll make good use of the airport, but it gets a 3 because it's still a bit rough on the textures, the AFCAD file has no airlines assigned to parking gates (picky I know, but it's nice to be assigned a realistic gate) and the night lighting is too dim. Having said that, it's good to see FSimStudios tackle a bigger airport like this.
29PALMS / CAPTAIN 7 - EDDN NUREMBERG P3D4
Bryan Wallace
I think this is an incredibly underappreciate-
d airport. Though is services mostly regional aircraft, I will go on a limb and say it is one of the most detailed payware airports on the market. If you have the benefit of a program like Chaseplane, get out of the cockpit and explore the area. You will be amazed by the staggering detail that went into the visuals at this airport. I think I almost lost it when I saw cars driving around the rooftop level of the parking garage looking for parking. When you observe the Nuremberg sign from the outside of the airport you feel like you are a part of a living breathing world. This will be reinforced when you observe shuttle busses pulling into a parking space to pick up and drop off passengers. Though they don’t actual show passengers getting off the shuttle, you feel something like that could be coming in the future. (Hint! Hint!) That being said, this is an absolutely visually stunning airport. I am sure it won’t disappoint.

Awesome Helicopter , Looks great sounds great and flys great...…….
GIBSON SCENERIES FOR FLIGHT SIMULATOR - CHINA - HONG KONG TO SHANGHAI
James McHarg
This scenery is the missing link if you are bored with the repetitive sameness of the default scenery and other ground texture products that have been around for years. This scenery is as real as it gets. Finally we have a product that looks from the flight deck exactly like the real thing. It enhances the realism of the flight sim experience greatly. Note that this is not a low altitude VFR product. It is more suited to higher altitude flying with airliners or military aircraft.To really see the benefit you do need to be above 5000 feet or so. The higher you are, the better it gets. Once you attain cruising altitude, I cannot think of another product that rivals this software. I thoroughly recommend this software to you.

This the best product from LATINVFR to date. Great detail and beautiful scenery. Be sure to read the manual about mesh settings.

RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Perry Mattenberger
My first impression when loading up is that I am disappointed. The brick texturing of the buildings look like from a dated FS9 or FSX scenery. I also don't like the green roofs of the jetways and buildings that much. Apron ground textures are ok. I should have looked a bit closer at it before purchasing, but was excited to have new scenery here and from a distance these textures look ok.

Peter Gordon
Great utility for improving ATC. It took me 10 minutes to figure out how the to build "phrases", by combining parts of existing ones, but once it clicked, it's easy and it's great to have your own airline featured in the ATC chatter. Lars supports the program very well and it's has been well thought out.
AEROSOFT - BALEARIC ISLANDS PROFESSIONAL - MENORCA P3D4
Peter Gordon
Bought this in the 25% off sale. The whole island of Menorca looks great. Nice, modern single runway airport with ILS approaches. Looks good at night too. Happy with this purchase.
