A community-built project
As regular readers will know (and I feel like I’ve used this phrase a lot lately), I am a huge fan of the Airbus A3xx family of aircraft. The A320 is a particular favourite. I built a full-sized A320 cockpit, have flown almost all the recent add-ons from the Aerosoft Airbus Extended series to the excellent Flight Sim Labs A320 series. My bookshelf is filled with original operational manuals, quick reference handbooks and more. In short, I’m a sidestick fan. So, when Microsoft announced it would include a brand new A320neo for its simulation, as default, I was both excited and cautious - excited to see what the new sim and the new tech could do and cautious from bitter memories of the default A320 that came with FSX back in 2006. It was a poor creature, even in 2006.
