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

MFSG - HALIFAX STANFIELD INTL AIRPORT CYHZ 2020 FSX P3D FS2004
Fulvio
Another great product, and a very good location choice. As for the former MFSG airports, great idea tolet the user choose if exclude the sorrounding photoscenery, since people like me is used to fly with ORBX Open_LC add-ons.
GODZONE VF - REAL NEW ZEALAND NZCH/CHRISTCHURCH P3D
Can
Amazing job from Godzone VF! This scenery looks great and the performance is also good. A must have scenery for everyone who loves to fly to New Zealand.
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Anthony
Nice airport but like all RF Scenery they are not in the same league as Orbx quality so l can’t give them a 5/5. They are really good and do deserve a 4/5.

Been using this several years. Great program with no complaints!
LIONHEART CREATIONS - LIONHEART - DIAMOND STAR DA40 XLS FSX P3D
David
Just got my PPL in a DA-40. Does not look, feel, or sound like the real aircraft. No left turning tendency on takeoff. Doesn’t float on the landings. Horrible G1000 functionality. Just as good as the Abacus A380.

Well it’s so nice to have another great Canadian airport especially from the east coast of Canada. This airport is done very well and I’m very pleased. Well done team!

good scenary, but for a newest soda update is needed, hope the author add this for everyone;)
PILOT EXPERIENCE SIM - PESIM BORDEAUX MERIGNAC LFBD P3D4 P3D5
Clay
There are some pleasant details compared to default but also some cartoonish elements that detract from the overall airport. It's not very well optimized for P3D v5. Flicker, flicker, flicker. You get the feeling this developer has a lot to learn still. Also, they misunderstand the LM install recommendations and force it to your C:\ drive. Very inconsiderate. But hey, it's better than default visually it just feels so unstable. Hopefully these guys will get better.
FLYSIMWARE - FALCON 50 FSX P3D
Stefan
A great addon! Nice model with some animations and a detailed interior, excellent hand flying, an brief yet complete documentation, an interactive load manager and the choice between a rather analogue cockpit and the possibility to retrofit it with a more advanced GPS device like the GTN 750 and the REX weather radar (both to be purchased separately-not included!)! -
I love this bird!
JUSTFLIGHT - A318 JETLINER
Lewis
I have owned this for a year or two now, it sits in the LITE area of complexity. Wh-
ich means since you are alone in the cockpit work load is reduced by half, which in a way makes it feel even more realist (more time to focus on the flying). It has a basic FMC which operates alone quite well, you can load saved flight plans into, also it will plan major routes automatically and also has a direct to function. Overall it is a slimmed down FMC which works well without the need for external plugins (FSUIPC). Th-
e 3D model is up there with the best, the cockpit is a custom made on, it is a little basic and similar to the Default A321. Flight model is pretty good, it is a little underpowered, and has a tendency to want to "nose down" during decent but over all its really good. (I have actually made a few tweaks to the config to get it to make real world performance and its a dream to fly now). There is NO FLY BY WIRE though, but for this price you cant complain, and performance and framerates are so high that you can forgive this. These days it's the only airliner I fly! And, set up correctly she will fly from Shannon to New York just like the real aircraft can. I found using the sound from the Aerosoft A319 suits this aircraft the best but the default sound is also very good. Overal-
l a lovely aircraft and great fun to fly.
