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

IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
kostis papageorgiou
You did it again!After many years using the def pmdg sounds, it's high time that we use something fresh!Excellent rendition to the sim, well done Pedrag!
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
keinan rogan
First time reviewing a product. I am a 737NG Fan and have been flying on simulators for over 15 years. These sounds produced from immersive Audio in my opinion are the best 737NG CFM engine sound packs to date! Youtube any 737NG video inside or outside and you will not come closer than Immersive audios CFM engine soundpack for the 737NG. Takeoffs sounds will give you a vibe as if you are moving something very heavy! Five stars without question. Immersive Audio development team great job! Keep this standard.

PREALSOFT - HD CITIES - BARCELONA FSX P3D
Steven Wong
I will say right off the bat that if you have LatinVFR Barcelona, you won't need this. LatinVFR scenery looks nearly identical to what's provided here. Saying that, this Prealsoft scenery is very good, and provides a highly detailed cityscape. I'm not sure what Aerosoft Mega Airport Barcelona covers, but as mentioned, if you don't have an LEBL scenery that covers the surrounding area, this would be an excellent addition.
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
Angus Rowlands
Excellent job by Immersion Audio. Only thing I would like to see is the same sounds being modified for use with the 600-700 series. Otherwise I'm very pleased with my purchase, highly recommended.
LHS - BUDAPEST LISZT FERENC LHBP FS9+FSX+FSXSE+P3D
Daynas Corman
Nice! I flew out of Budapest yesterday and was looking for a P3D V4 version which I found. It does have the feel of the real airport and is a overall nice add on. The P3D V4 seems to work well.
SIMELITE SOLUTIONS - TIME ZONE FIXER FSX P3D
Radu Mares
Briefly put: recommended. Easy installation with bgl files activated like scenery addon, corrects time issues at all my airports and thus corrects sunrise and sunset issues I had with Iceland airports. Regu-
lar updates are needed to keep track of day shifts and are also provided as download from the developer site. Well worth to add it to your sim world.
PAULO RICARDO - FORTALEZA 2014 P3D4
Steven Wong
This review is coming right after I just reviewed the excellent Joinville scenery. Fortaleza is another great scenery from this developer, which offers a great location at the northern part of Brazil. This makes this location quite accessible for flights to major cities in the US and Europe. The surrounding scenery is amazing, with what seems like hundreds of buildings, which give a great sense of an urban city, yet performance seems to be quite good as my frames only take minor hits in fps. The only minor thing is that the runway markings seem a bit blurry up close, but once you rise above a few feet, it becomes much better looking. Also, the runway and apron ground textures could also be somewhat sharper. If I may, i'd love it if the developer could improve this, as this would then make the airport 5+ stars, and amongst the best of the best. Once again, another outstanding effort from this developer!
PAULO RICARDO - JOINVILLE 2017 SBJV FSX P3D
Steven Wong
I think most people would overlook this airport, wondering where the heck Joinville is?!? I am happy to say that this is one of the BEST airport sceneries I have ever purchased! The scenery is very detailed, in both the airport and surrounding areas. A nice touch is that the nearby radio towers are designed to pulse their strobe lights, which is something I haven't seen before in any scenery (well done!) The Joinville area is great for GA flying, and feels very much like flying in a small to mid-size city in the US. What's nice though is that the airport supports 737 jets (with SODE jetways), which allows me to go to all parts of South America non-stop. Th-
is airport has the quality of a top end OrbX airport, and you could easily mistake it as one. Based on this experience, I immediately purchased the Salvador and Fortaleza airports, which are also outstanding. I would easily purchase the Mega Rio and Mega Sao Paolo airports, but only once the developer has updated those for P3Dv4. Looki-
ng forward to more from this developer!
