Aerosoft A33o Virgin Atlantic Graphic

The A330 is the bigger brother of the A320 series, designed for long-distance (or short-haul large capacity) flights. It is a logical follow-up of the A320 series but with many systems redone to a higher level of detail with state-of-the-art modelling and textures.

Features:

  • Simulation of the A330 focused on the day to day operation from the left seat
  • Full rain and rain repellent effects using TrueGlass from TFDi Design
  • Dozens of non-standard animations with sound effects (sunscreens, windows, tables, tiller, jump seat, standby compass, drooping flight surfaces etc). All main doors and cargo hatches can be opened.
  • Extensive options to show ground objects (cones, ground power and ground power)
  • Web server that allows access the MCDU via any web browser; ideal for tablet computers
  • Electronic Flight Bag that gives access to flows, checklists, flight plans, documents and charts
  • Extensive manuals
  • Add-in View system: adds many pre-defined views for easy use, emulates 2D panel views
  • Add-in Sound system: adds hundreds of background sounds to enhance the immersion
  • Co-pilot that runs checklists and flows
  • Connected Flight Deck v2 that uses a server-based system making it very easy to join other pilots and to fly as Co-Pilot or Observer
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) for all textures
