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

I love your work and have purchased everything you make, but please change the way you communicate with your clients. You sent me 3 notifications about small changes within 6 hours (2 of them within 4 minutes) and 2 of them were point updates. If I acted on each message I would be doing little else today but updating your products. Again, keep on working so wonderfully as you do, but bundle the updates more appropriately. -

Great aircraft, fast, great for learning to fly VFR / IFR. Very nice, perhaps the only flaws are the internal textures (which I was told, however, that the creator is already working on the 4k textures) and the slightly loud sounds. Excell-
ent price quality!

Amazing Product! The ground texturing is really good for taxiways, and runways. Plenty of custom ground objects. A very detailed interior for Terminal 2 and part of Terminal 1. Even the train station has a custom interior. One of the best addons I have seen for MSFS.

As for the graphic aspect, the product is always excellent and of high quality. But the performance isn't as good as the graphics. Looking at the plane from the outside and staying with the view still, very good frames (40/45 / fps), but as I try to turn around with the view, here is the drastic drop in frames (22 / 25fps) with relative loss of fluidity. Even when landing, with a view in the cockpit, the frames drop around 25 frames. With my system I have no problems with other pay airports (Olbia Orbx 45 / 50fps, Zurich Fsdreamteam 40 / 50fps, Munich SimWings 40 / 45fps). I'm sorry, but this scenario really disappointed me. I am hoping for a future update to change my opinion.

looks amazing during the day, terrible during the night. My lights can't light up the ground further than 1ft away from the aircraft. Unusable at night

Great Airprot with fantastic modelling and Textures! I love to fly here, EXCEPT: It has the worst performance ever when looking at the main terminal buildings. It is worse than Aerosoft EGLL and ORBX True Earth. Tried their support and tweak & change settings, but still. Only 20 FPS when looking at the terminal.

The thing I did not like about TTPP is the fixed airbridges. It would be much better to have an option of moving ones that are compatible with GSX
AEROPLANE HEAVEN - SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE MK1A - MSFS
Les
There was a rumor that this almost didn't get released because of the Flying Iron version. Seeing that this version was the very first Spitfire to be produced and the other offering is a much later version all I can say is I'm glade AH changed their mind. These two Spitfires are very different aircraft based on the era they were produced. That being said this bird is amazing all around. I highly recommend this for anyone that's into WWII aircraft, WWII era fighters, historians, tail dragger enthusiast or those who just love aviation. I could got on and on. This will go down as one of the more amazing offerings for FS2020. Great Job Aeroplane Heaven and a big thank you for bringing this to us!!!

Top notch plane and challenging one to fly. Some small issues that will be fix soon I hope. If you like to compare it to the Flying Iron..it is in the same ligule. Happy to have it in MSFS

Excellent work. The bridges are very well crafted and very aesthetically appealing. I wished I had mods for all river towns.
