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.
  • Includes a FSX manual (English) and the actual 'real' manuals for the gliders and C4 Flight Computer (English and German)

Customer Reviews
FSIMSTUDIOS - CANCUN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MMUN P3D4
Alex Garrett
FSIMSTUDIOS has done a great job with their rendition of Mexico's Cancún International Airport (MMUN). MMUN is the 2nd largest international airport in Mexico and the biggest airport for international passengers. The scenery is very detailed and includes great attention to detail including Terminal 4, which opened in November 2017. The price and quality of this add-on is right on point without framerate reduction. Excellent addition to my airport collection.
REALWORLDSCENERY - ULTIMATE VFR ARIZONA PART 2
Yuhao Chen
I'm waiting for the area near the KPHX airport! It would be a good idea to do the areas surrounding the airports first!
MWP PROJECTS - ATMOENGINE PLUGIN P3D4
Charles Evans

CAPTAIN SIM - 757-200 CAPTAIN BASE PACK - FS2004
Rich Monahan
One big short-coming here for me, and that's the FPS in wingview. And it's a shame cause otherwise a great product. Engines are most realistic looking of any of the other 757s available (payware or freeware) but I just can't live with a stuttering view at this phase of simming (granted I', still using FS9. But the other 757 models don't have this problem.

VOIE BLEU - EBCI CHARLEROI BRUSSELS SOUTH P3DV4
MICHAEL SIMON
Excellent! Very realistic! The frame rate is better on this version than on the previous! The new terminal (T2) is there and is very beautiful! This product really deserves 5 stars!
MWP PROJECTS - X ATMOENGINE XP11
TS Brady
I'm not impressed. The water looks horrible, much prefer XP11 default. The clouds are nice, better than XP11 default, but the sky is too misty/foggy. Almost every weather situation, except clear skies give a very hazy sky. The price isn't bad, but I'm underwhelmed by what you get. In fact, I've uninstalled X AtmoEngine end re-installed SkyMaxx Pro v4.

DO NOT BUY! Less than 30 min into it and all ready want a refund. Virtua-
l cockpit visual quality is from like fs9 era. click on any circuit breaker and other switches move. left click does nothing on some switches but on other does something. 3 position switches move like they are 2 position switches. Same cockpit sound ALL the time regardless of power input or stage of flight. Extrem-
ely not satisfied with this product. Should be a Freeware in my opinion.
