DISCUS 

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)
  • Manuals included as a .pdf-file :

ISLAND CREATIONS - LA GOMERA AERIAL IMAGERY MSFS
Christopher
I have been "flying" sims for over 20 years...FSX, the two X-Planes and now MSFS and I have never seen a better scenery addon to any platform. The cliffs, rock formations, trees, bushes and other vegetation, the roads and villages all look like actual photos. Even if you are not a fan of Canary Island flying, this is worth purchasing just to fly over for the fun of it. Island Creations really nailed this one "spot on". Best scenery I have ever seen. GET IT.
REDWING SIM - GENEVE-COINTRIN AIRPORT - LSGG MSFS
Pierrick
Great scenery in global, just lacking on the aeroclub side. The restaurant of thhe aeorclub is realy medium, the "bubbles" at the aeroclub are overlaped by generic hangars and there is even a building missing. Since last update, there is also 2 controls towers, wich is bad obviously.
SIMCREATIONS - PARIS LE BOURGET FSX P3D3-5
Yannick
I think we can all agree that Paris - Le Bourget is one of the most renowned airfields in the entire world, not least because of its famous airshow. Having been to the show myself, I was really pleased to see that Simcreations took it upon themselves to provide us simmers with a rendition of this iconic airfield. Generally speaking, I must say that flying into the airfield feels nice enough. I mean, the ground textures are okay, most, if not all, of the iconic buildings, have been replicated to some extent, and even the Ariane rockets sit where they should. Also, the scenery benefits from a current and up-to-date airport layout and, judging by screenshots, seems to be the developer's most comprehensive project yet. However-
, this is where the pleasantries end. Some of the taxiway textures just seem to use plain default textures. Also, most of the buildings do not benefit from high-resolution textures. The use of default elements, including that of default tank cars and other vehicles placed throughout the scenery, makes the scenery come across as a bit dull overall. I must say that given the exciting nature of this airfield, I expected the developer to have put a bit more effort into providing us with a faithful recreation of the airport. This is especially so considering the associated price tag. Overall, if you desire flying in and out of the most frequented business jet airfield in Europe, I would say go for it and give it a try. This is especially so, given that this is the most accurate and detailed, albeit only, recreation of the field that is currently available. However, if you buy it with the expectations of it being up to par with some of Paris's other airports, then you're bound to be disappointed.
LIONHEART CREATIONS - TRINIDAD TB-21 GT MSFS EDITION
Milan
The 4.1 update is a game changer in terms of fps (no more low fps as with pre-v4 version). It is a solid aircraft reflecting well its real life counterpart. A definite part of my virtual hangar. The devs are also actively working on the title (check the update history) unlike some other devs, which deserves recognition on its own.
SAMSCENE - CHONGQING MAGIC CITY 8D MSFS
Willem
Very beautiful scenery, well worth it. Especially because the airport is also made by CHONGQING. In the asobo scenery only 2 runways have been made, there are no taxiways, terminals, and parking places. With this version you have the full airport with all the trimmings. I went there 10 years ago, and we landed on RW 2L RW 3 didn't exist then. The terminal where we got off is exactly as it is in this scenery. That Monorail has also been made, you can see it driving through a building, I sat there and it just as it is. Am very satisfied. Zeer Mooie scenery, zeker de moeite waard. Speciaa-
l omdat ook de vlieghaven van CHONGQING gemaakt is. In de asobo scenery zijn er enkel 2 startbanen gemaakt, er zijn geen taxiways, terminals, en parking plaatsen. Met deze versie heb je de voledige luchthaven met alles erop en eraan. Ik ben daar 10 jaar geleden geweest, en we zijn geland op RW 2L RW 3 bestond toen nog niet. De terminal waar we uitgestapt zijn is juist zoals het is in deze scenery. Ook die Monorail is gemaakt, je ziet die door een building rijden, Heb daar ingezeten en het juist zoals het is. Ben heel tevreden. 非常-

Very unique and fun location to fly out of. Love taking our Airbus H135 out of here, but the cave runway is great for my GA as well. Great job!

Recently purchased this product. I received a serial number that did not work I am unable to use this product at this time. I have reached out to Taxi2gate for a response or refund. As of now i cannot actually rate the product itself but the service is a 1 star for this inconvenience.
