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 :
    1x FSX Manual (English)
    3x Original Glider Manuals (English, German)

DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - VVTS-TAN SON NHAT INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Volker
Very well-designed airport! Ground textures are nice and "dirty", gates dock well, there is interior terminal modeling in the international terminal (not in the domestic), and the landside areas are nicely done. No glitches or bugs noticed so far. I was at VVTS in 2015, and visiting there with this scenery does feel immersive and reminds well of being there. A worthwhile purchase and good value for the price!
PILOT'S FSG - LEST - SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA AIRPORT P3D5
Javier
The airport is very well detailed and the visual part is very good, however in performance very bad, high VRAM usage and in the middle part of the airport there is a significant FPS drop

DIGITALE PRODUKTE FREDERIK BLATTER - EDDR AIRPORT SAARBRÜCKEN MSFS
georg
Very well done ! No issue here with ILS, it's working perfectly fine (that said I might add I'm using Navigraph)
DIGITALE PRODUKTE FREDERIK BLATTER - EDDR AIRPORT SAARBRÜCKEN MSFS
Maks
Models in this addition are really good, especially the terminal. What is a bit disappointing, the ground network is default, so don't expect even green lights at taxiway paths. Moreover, the ILS is not working, what makes it difficult in bad conditions. I gave 4 start, because the price is absolutely equivalent to the quality of this scenery.
DIGITAL DESIGN - SOCHI MSFS
Denis
Wonderful scenery. Perfect framerates,all objects are positioned correctly and looks recognizabe as in real life. waiting for the rebirth of Pulkovo from delightful author. Good job Evgeniy!
LOTUS SIMULATIONS - L-39 ALBATROS
David
Just installed and flied it in P3D V5.2 and it is good as it was when I got it 12 years ago. All the instruments, gauges and levers are perfect and function well.
ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Joe
It's amazing. I am not sure how realistic it is but it has so many cool features like an air refueling boom, ram air turbine, and working hud.
YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS
Jim
The JSX-2 is an absolutely awesome personal aircraft, YSIM along with SUBSONEX have done an excellent job, ground handling is very good, take off handling is "interesting" but once mastered is a sense of achievement getting this plane into the air Plane external and internal graphics are some of the best I have seen, although cabin engine noise is a bit on the quiet side but this makes sense for longer flights. I was a bit reluctant to buy it but after some decent review I took the plunge and I'm very glad I did, highly recommended, check out some of the SUBSONEX JSX-2 manufacturer development videos, give you a great insight into the uniqueness of this aircraft, overall fantastic purchase from simMmarket.
RHDSIM - A320 FOR X-PLANE 11
gary
Fantastic plane!. I have the JAR 320 but thought I'd try this as it is so cheap. It is head and shoulders above the JAR 320. The flying is great, controls are responsive, I really cant fault this plane at all. It's now my goto plane.
