An Airbus classic! Building a state-of-the-art aircraft simulation for FSX is not for the faint hearted. It takes skill, knowledge and a lot of patience. The external model and virtual cockpit incorporate the latest modeling developments in animation, reflection and lighting built into the FSX simulator engine.

Details:

The A300B4-200 series is a first generation Airbus with analogue steam-gauges and a (for that time) advanced autopilot. Some of the current operators have made cockpit upgrades based on various GPS systems where the ADI was replaced with an EADI, the HSI replaced with an ND, the CDU replaced with a (basic) FMS. We have not simulated these upgrades as they where not included in the original aircraft! Because the Airbus autopilot systems are so different from the FSX implementation of an autopilot we decided to reinventing the autopilot from scratch. We send commands to the elevator trim and elevator trim to control the attitude and bank angle of the aircraft based on so called PID controllers. This results in very realistic autopilot behavior. We did the same thing with the autothrottle, so don`t be amazed if the aircraft is not able to maintain the correct airspeed in turbulent air. Do as the real pilots do: turn off the autothrottle and switch to manual control !

This aircraft was developed in cooporation with real pilots, the training department of a major cargo operator flying the A300 and based on experience in the full motion A300B4-203 simulator at Brussels Airport, Belgium and will be distributed by Aerosoft in both boxed and download format. Below are some highlights of the SimCheck A300B4-200 simulation...

Features:

Model specifications

  • FSX-only 3D models: a cargo model and a passenger model
  • All the passenger, belly and cargo doors can be opened and closed individually
  • Front and aft passenger stairs, a fully moving cargo loader and GPU model. For people using AES or other ground scenery addons we have added on options hiding ground animatiosn except for the GPU
  • Moving APU air inlet door
  • Low speed/high speed aileron split animations
  • Realistic spoiler animation
  • Main landing gear bogie tilt
  • Bump bitmap
  • Retracting and extending main landing lights
  • Complete virtual cockpit with predefined camera positions
  • Textures from a number airlines are available and more are added on a regular basis
  • A Photoshop based paintkit will be made available

Sound

  • High end 3D engine sound simulation
  • Cockpit switch sounds based on actual recording inside the cockpit
  • Speed and extension depended wind sound from the landing gear
  • Speed and extension depended rumble sound from the spoilers
  • Cockpit oral warning based on real life recordings

Panel

  • Complete captains and first officer panel with independent gauges (except altimeter)
  • Independent standby altimeter
  • GPWS simulation with 6 modes
  • TCAS panel with realistic TA (RA not simulated as that doesn`t make sense in FSX since there is no communication between aircraft!)
  • Comms panel with 2 independent NDB`s

Pedestal

  • Double INS/CDU system that allows manual waypoint entry but also running off an FSX XML flightplan. The INS will follow great circle flightpath
  • Fuel panel with 5 fuel tanks, fuel dump gauge and fuel loading gauge. Both featuring realistic fueling/defueling and fuel dump speeds
  • APU panel that actually uses fuel from the correct tank(s), realistic start-up and shutdown times
  • Hydraulics panel with realistic use of hydraulics fluids and linked to the correct flight control surfaces
  • Pneumatics, packs, cabin temperature control and cabin pressurisation control with realistic simulation (e.g. open the door end the temperature will change depending on the external temperature, cabin differential pressure based on standard atmoshere + correction for actual conditions)
  • Electrics panel with separate AC and DC system
  • Autopilot and autothrottle based on PID controllers working like the real thing, no FSX standard autopilot nor autothrottle used
  • ROLL and PITCH modes are simulated: enter a roll and the aircraft will maintain the current bank angle (bank is automatically limited to 25°, bank angles < 5° will have the aircraft level the wings), set the aircraft to a certain vertical speed and the aircraft will maintain the vertical speed
  • Realistic N1 limit computer
  • Settings panel with 4 predefined panel states, performance calculation (optimal/maximum levels based on gross weight), ability to call fuel truck, jetway etc...
  • Fully featured overhead panel with, amongst other things, Yellow Accu Pressure simulation: No yellow accu pressure = no parking brake. Yellow accu pressure will last about 30 minutes before the parking brake is disconnected because of lack of pressurisation
  • Realistic pitch trim simulation: You can actually trim the aircraft to fly the attitude you want, not the attitude FSX "thinks" you want...
  • All panel settings are saved between sessions based on the name of the currently loaded flight. Saving a flight "in flight" is not a good idea however, flights should best be saved before take-off our after landing. In total around 400 variables are saved between flights...
  • Dragable speed bugs on the 2D panel
  • Dragable altitude bug on the 2D panel
  • GDI+ based airspeed indicator, RMI, ADI and HSI for smooth and accurate needle movements

Flight model

  • Realistic flight handling tested by a professional A300 Captain
  • Realistic engine performance in flight
  • Realistic fuel use during flight but also during start-up and taxi
  • Realistic braking performance

Limitations

  • Because we hardly use any default FSX variables and controls, shared cockpit is not supported
  • No FS9 model is planned at this time
  • INS does not have an MSU, no VOR updating or drift
  • We have decided not to add a weather radar as FSX does not provide detailed enough information to make a radar that has any real use
  • Panel will only work with (a very recent) FSUIPC installed

I must say WOW! I really have enjoyed this aircraft. I have been interested in the Airbus A300 series since I first flew on one with American Airlines on their A300-605R. I know this is the A300-200 version but still almost the same. From the flight dynamics to the sounds, it is a very fun and well done aircraft to fly. I also purchased the FMC upgrade and that just makes the whole simulation better. I also have the TSS A300 soundpack and that completes the whole A300 simulation. If you are looking for a good A300, look no further then the SimCheck A300 package. Just be sure to get the FMC upgrade so you will have a modern FMC unless you like using INS.

This is detailed simulation of the A300.

The sounds are very well done.
The exterior model and textures are average and the 2D panels and VC are satisfactory.

It would be a good addition to those who wish to have a A300 simulation, utilising the early Airbus technology.

that's a very nice item, maybe a little frame's killer, but very well done overall.
The model is pretty, with a great attention at the details, it has a perfect INS fully functional that adds a lot of reality flying that old bird.

This is an excellent simulation of a classic aircraft. Systems are modeled, 3D Flight Engineer panel is alive and gives you work to do. Sounds and sound effect contribute very positively to the immersion factor. The autopilot is a simulation of itself and you really have to learn the way it operates. Also take care of your engines and doth push them at 120% N1 because you ma got fire.
Flight characteristics correspond to that of widebody heavy aircraft and you have to pick the right runway for take-off.
IF you want something NON-digital and different and nice , fly this, you will be very happy.

Flawless!! Absolutely brilliant!

Flight Dynamics are awesome, it feels like you are flying a heavy!

A beautifully crafted soundest that truly allows you to believe you are flying a heavy!

Systems are fantastic!

Exterior Model: A debated subject with regards to the A300, Whilst it may not be quite the standard as say PMDG or Captain Sim, it still does not fail to deliver in my opinion.

I give it 5 stars I haven't experimented much with but like the previous reviewer it's very enjoyable to fly and very easy on FPS. So far I found no faults in it.

****** Five stars is not enough, so here is five more.
This is an awesome aircraft that is very well made and a lot of fun to fly.
It uses the double INS/CDU system that makes it much easier to manage the cockpit than just a VOR-DME system used by the 727 and DC9, yet there is still enough managing of flight systems, to keep you quite enjoyably busy. It is much more interesting to fly than the modern glass systems and a very stable sim.
You won't be disappointed with this Airbus at all.

L'idée est superbe, la réalisation n'est pas du tout au rdv pour moi. J'ai beau rentrer les bonnes fréquences SIV IRL, rien ne se passe car beaucoup trop sont abscentes (SIV BEAUVAIS par exemple). Ils manquent beaucoup trop d'arérodromes comme le reconnu ALBERT BRAY. Il me semble que rentrer des fréquences dans la banque est possible. J'attends une mise à jour sérieuse pour remonter la note.

Bonjour, Je m'aperçois que je n'ai jamais mis de remerciement à Thibault sur SimMarket, bien que j'ai eu l'occasion de le faire par Mail, ainsi qu'à Taylor S. pour ses vidéos infos. Donc je tiens ici après avoir pratiqué ce sublime Mod et ses MAJ durant quelques mois maintenant que c'est de loin parmi les meilleurs travaux que j'ai pu voir et espéré pour un vrai + sur MSFS. Allez--
y foncé les yeux fermés amis pilotes vous ne serez pas déçu voir mieux vous serez transporté... -
Encore un grand merci pour ce travail fourni et tout celui qui est à venir... Bon-

Scène très sombre la nuit. Très gourmande en FPS.. Il manque un éclairage de nuit du tarmac correspondant à la réalité. Pour ce prix ce serait un minimum.

ne fonctionne pas avec GSX (il manque la partie taxi). Dommage. j'ai contacté le développeur qui ne souhaite pas faire la mise à jour.

Vraiment un très bon produit ! Je recommande, merci au développeur ! Je n'ai pas de souci particulier avec l'agent AFIS VFR, car il faut bien paramétrer son micro avant l'utilisation du logiciel. La prise en main est assez facile en suivant le tuto. La phraséologie est reconnue par des mots clés et suivant votre annonce au micro, dans la fenêtre du logiciel, vous pouvez observer le pourcentage de reconnaissance. Entre 80% et 100% cela fonctionne très bien. Si le logiciel ne reconnait pas ou en partie votre phraséologie, un message audio vous sera communiqué de la façon suivante: "Je n'ai pas compris votre demande" C'est vraiment le top pour se familiariser ave la phraséologie aéronautique. Merci à TAYLOR STILL pour sa vidéo sur Youtube qui annonce bientôt la sortie de ATC VFR de tous les terrains contrôlés. Donc vivement cette sortie pour encore plus de réalisme sur notre simulateur préféré. Bon vol à tous.

Je suis satisfait de cet addon, pour le VFR en France c'est juste devenu indispensable pour moi maintenant. J'ai mis 4 étoiles car il y a pas de collationnement-
s et je ne sais pas si c'est prévu par l'éditeur et aussi c'est dommage que les Départements Français d'Outre-mer ne soient pas inclus.... Mal-
gré ces petits défauts ça fonctionne très bien, aucun soucis à l'installation, reconnaît ma voix et les mots-clés. L'é-
diteur de ce programme est en très bonne voie avec ce produit et j'espère qu'il y aura encore plus d'améliorations dans le futur. Je regrette pas mon achat.
