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.

Customer Reviews
PROJECT MAX - CYZF YELLOWKNIFE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
David
A well done scenery and worth the purchase especially at this price point. It's nice to see northern Canadian airports getting some attention.
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS
Chuck
I would like to modify my previous review. The plane honestly deserves five stars. I did not mean to suggest that it needed to be altered in order to function correctly. I was apparently the only one who had the gear problem and I fixed it with help from the good people at SwissMilSim.
BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V7.2 - MSFS
Michael
The trees look incredible, and autochanging seasons is great. The changes to the trees in the summer are subtle but make the sim so much better. I wish I had purchased this sooner.
BIJAN HABASHI - PROJECT: ISLANDS, SUNKEN BOATS, - MSFS
Michael
Amazing product, keep up the great work! I look forward to future updates.
FSIPANEL - FSIPANEL 2020 STANDARD EDITION MSFS
Jerry
Program does what it says it's going to do, easily and without too much fuss. Would be 5 stars except I feel the price is too high. Advanced edition offered nothing I was interested in so I opted for the Standard version and don't regret the purchase (except for price.) You can use any of the included default aircraft in any flavor of Microsoft Flight Simulator, and also add most any 3rd party aircraft (SWS Kodiak, JF Turbo Arrows, Carenados, PMDG, etc.) Not sure about helicopters as I'm not interested in rotary wings but I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere. Loa-
d a plane onto a runway, turn on the flight director and within a minute you can setup an approach to fly over and over again. Start downwind one time then change the approach to vectors, left or right traffic. Change altitudes, weather, wind. Developer has numerous videos on YouTube.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVESKY P3D STANDARD
Zehui
PRETTY GOOD, BEST WEATHER ENGINE FOR FLIGHT SIMULATION EVER!
AREZONE-AVIATION SOUNDSTUDIOS - CESSNA 170B HQ-SOUNDSET MSFS
Jan
Sounds in the soundset make the cessna 170 a more enjoyable plane to fly. The sounds are better than the stock sounds. This product is not the easiest to install but it works as described. The sounds did not install to the tundra version, and i had to change some lines in the layout file to make them work on that version of the plane. There is some clipping in the sounds while flying. The sounds in this package are nice and improve the C170, but it hope the issues will be adressed in a update.
JUSTSIM - HANNOVER AIRPORT EDDV MSFS
Kim-Marvin
Normal JustSim Scenery, nothing special about it but way better than default.
CAPTAIN SIM - 777 CAPTAIN II - (777-200) BASE PACK P3D4
Captain
I'm surprised by the Number of Researches I've done for Months on this Plane. Travelling Forums and Reading Reports posted by people who own this product 777 Captain || for P3DV4. So i Finally Decided to Try it out for Myself and i Must Say!! (The Real Honest Truth Of course!! ✋) This plane is So Amazing and Fun to Fly!! It's very FPS friendly on My Low End PC ( I get 23-32 in VC and 27-38 in External View; Even at Heavy Airports Like FB KSFO) And i Currently haven't Found One Single issue!! Or Complaint!! -
Take-off and Landing the plane is very Realistic! I'm Using P3D 4.5 HF3 on Laptop. There are even ways you can make it compatible with P3DV5 on CS Forum! And Plenty of liveries!! A-
nd it's easy and simple to master the technique's of the Aircraft if you are someone like me who doesn't like to understand that complex stuff like PMDG that's Way too Expensive. When you can save alot more! And the best part!! The plane is more cheaper on Simmarket compared to the CS Store! This definitely gives you the advantage to save some Money. A Must have Plane for sure! Alongside With a Full Beautiful interior Passenger Cabin!! Fantastic to Tour the Cabin During Cruise When AutoPilot is Engaged of course! The Cabin Animations are mind-blowing!! -
Controlling The Passenger Seats And Converting Them into Beds just Wowed Me!! Not just that!! You can control the passenger Window shafts, Arm rest Table's On All Seats! (Business and Economy), And Open and Close Doors to Mysterious Places on the Plane LOL! Almost Feels like I am inside a Real Triple 7 in Real Life! I Love this plane so much! The Cockpit is well detailed Too! I have Spent so many hours with it and completed my first TEN Flights with it. No Bugs, No Errors and I'm Truly Pleased!! Sim FPS remains smoothly positive at the start of Load up and throughout the entire flight!! And Some tips and tricks to boost up FPS even At Greater level are available on the CS Forum too! I Also Have the -300ER and -Freighter Expansion's Installed and they work and fly Perfectly as I Expected!! Better get back to Business!! A Must Have Plane for Sure!! 1000 Stars!! Grea-

FLY 2 HIGH - MIYAZAKI BOUGAINVILLEA AIRPORT MSFS
Cavin
All is good except the night. I personally find the terminal look as if it has no windows, and given the interior of the terminals are not as well developed. the overall night scenery is somewhat disappointing.
