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)

SLH SIM DESIGNS - LA DÉSIRADE AIRPORT TFFA MSFS
bernard
Very good scene my friend, I love your work, keep up the good work, the Caribbean comes to life on MSFS.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY CLOUD ART FSX P3D3-5
Pierre-Olivier
Flying only in VR , ASCA combined with Active Skyv (meteo engine) is a "must have". Huge diversity of clouds , real time clouds texture, the immersion is perfect and the impact is very low even if the clouds layer is covered.
SOUTH OAK CO - EMERGENCY LIGHTS - USA MSFS
Mark
Adds life and drama to the night and I especially appreciate that there are multiple emergency light patterns used. Highly recommended, especially given the wide coverage area.
CLOUDSURF ASIA SIMULATIONS - MEGA MANILA SCENERY FOR MSFS
Mark
Well crafted, with good night lighting. Includes good coverage of Manila's highrises. Works great with the freeware Manila mods in my collection. Highly recommended.
TABURET - C.AMERICA CARIBBEAN S.AMERICA GA TRAFFIC MSFS
Mark
Quite effective at adding a bit of life to the surrounding skies. The traffic density is quite believable, occasional and not too busy, and the models are good. This is a bargain given the vast area covered. Highly recommended!
TABURET - SINGAPORE MALAYSIA 10 M DEM MSFS
Mark
After flying the Malaysian part of the Malaysian Peninsula, I can report that this package makes the mountains look great. The lowlands no longer randomly undulate, and both the flowing water and water bodies align well with this DEM. Only the cities still suffer from random lumps and spikes, hence my awarding only four stars, though I can understand why the author might avoid cities, as they have done with the airport. Performance was also excellent; I didn't notice any drop in frame rate. I highly recommend this package as it is a massive improvement over the default mesh.
MLD SCENERY - LRIA - IASI INTERNTIONAL AIRPORT MSFS

Nice scenery to add to the Romania collection. Qu-
ality and performance is really good.
FSXCENERY - KAGC ALLEGHENY COUNTY AIRPORT MSFS
Gene
A few years ago I flew in a Cessna 182 as a co-pilot with my friends, and we took off and landed at this airport. Ever since then I been waiting to see this airport in the game. Thank you so much!
AVIAWORX - AVIAFLYBYWIRE MSFS
Mark
Works great on all my aircraft and helps a lot with aircraft that are unbalanced at cruise and require constant trim adjustments to stay level.
GAFFER SIMULATIONS - KING SHAKA INTL (FALE), DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA MSFS
Michael
Enjoy the software, my only complaint is the jetways, they should be animated. I have sent a request to the developer, but have not received any answer as of yet.
