Aerobatic gliding is perhaps the most complex and demanding of aviation sports. It`s hard enough with an engine but doing it all on kinetic energy demands a very high degree of skill. And a suitable aircraft and finally there is one for FS!

This product shares it`s base with the Discus Glider X (a separate product) that got the most spectacular reviews and even managed to get the AVSIM Gold Star Award!

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 K model was one of the last versions of the Discus and an attempt to create a capable aerobatic contest version. They used one of the prototypes and the Discus K flew for the first time in 1988. It was moderately successful, but for most FSX pilots it will be more than a handful!

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 model that is near perfect (do note we never used these words for any product before) to the high detail modeling, it’s a product without rivals and without precedent.

Features:

  • Fully professional development (over 20 months).
  • Highly detailed model (for example just the VC has 146384 polygons, more than double of what FS2004 could compile) using all the FSX options.
  • Highly advanced flight model 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.
  • 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. Not like this simplified gauges in the default glider in FSX.
  • Real usable yaw string that will make coordinated flight a lot easier.
  • Owners of the Discus Glider X get 30% discount

FSXCENERY - LEST SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Fernando Ares Iglesias
El escenario me parece bien trabajado aunque se podria haber piesto las torretar de iluminacion de la cabecera 17. Me hubiese gustado dar las 5 estrellas, ya que me a ayudado con un problema que tenia con el escenario, pero el otro dia me e dado cuenta de que los ILS, no te llevan al centro de la pista 35/17, si no que te apartan al lado izquierdo. Por lo demas, buen escenario.
VIRTAVIA - B-1B LANCER P3DV4.5
Bryant Hardee
I had this model in FSX when it first came out and ran great over the years. This version for me has low FPS performance in the VC view in the current version of P3Dv4.5 which is odd considering I have a powerful PC and GeForce GTX1080. My guess is that there is something with the VC materials/textu-
res or gauges that is the cause of the low FPS. I am running models like the Fly The MaddogX 64bit which runs at over 40-50FPS in the VC and has a lot deeper coding. For some uses, this model may run fine but it is dated and you may run into the same issue I am having. Buyer beware.

I have been playing it since they opened the XP11 support for it and I love it. Its pretty much everything everyone over at FSEconomy has been asking for. But the devs there just ignore. These devs have not only been listening. But fixing bugs fast. So much you can do. And many ways to play with it. Even easy mode or survival mode. And more modes in between. Dont have a sim? You can still use it. I fly mostly the TBM900 and am loving using this program with it to simulate making money and building a company. And with even more awesome features in the works. I cant wait to see what the future holds. WELL worth the small price to use it.

FLYFREESTD - MIG 29 FIRST GENERATION P3D4
Sören Maaß
What I like: Nice looking model and vc. Sound from outside okay. Flight dynamics okay as far as I can estimate, except stall, but most developers have problems to produce an interesting experience at this point. Systems works like described. Short reading of manual was enough. Nice to have this different types of systems and models. UB Version (double seater) has a full rear cockpit. what could be better: Soun-
d from inside especially engine sound and air sound should give you the feeling to sit in a Mig-29 with very powerful engines. That's not the case. Somtimes FPS Intensive. Resul-
t: Nice looking aircraft for fans of fighter jets. Better than products from some other developers who produces fighter jets. The sound package has some room for improvement and the developer should think about an update. Then this would be a very nice aircraft. Would be nice to see some other Migs from soviet time by this developer like Mig-15/17/21/23-
/25.

I have been using OnAir since the first closed beta was announced (very quietly) on AVSIM in June of this year (2019) and it has been a wonderful journey watching it develop into what it is today...and the devs have many more plans to add new features as time goes on. Prior to OnAir, I used another similar program almost daily for almost a year and while I still consider it a good program, I prefer OnAir. It has a nicer interface, more challenging and realistic gameplay (especially if you play on survival mode) and the devs are brilliant, very friendly and responsive to the community - a real pleasure to deal with. Questions are answered quickly and there is a very nice Discord community also. Give it a try :-) Everyone gets a free 15 days so you have nothing to lose.

Excellent rendition of an untouchable airport so far. We wanted it and now we have it for our domestic Olympic airlines flights. Very good performance.
