Release Note Version 2.02

So, what's new? 

Popup MCDU:

You can get a large MCDU by clicking on the screen of the small MCDU. The large MCDU can be dragged around by the mouse and you can use your computer keyboard to enter text in it (as long as the mouse pointer is hovering over the popup MCDU.

New MCDU pages:

We added the PROG page (without any of the performance-related features; performance prediction is in the scope of the higher versions only)
Also new: The lateral revision page allowing to choose a new destination airport for inflight diversions
Another new one: The arrival/departure page for selection of the runway used for take-off/landing.

FMS file based SID/STAR:

The backbone of our FMGS is now good enough to fully support SID/STAR generation and execution - the use of navigraph data is reserved for the Plus and Premium versions, but we give you a little work around by allowing to save parts of a flight plan you created as fms-based SID and STAR files and insert them later before or after the flight plan. This allows - after thorough flight preparation to change your chosen approach quickly in flight. SID/STAR creation and usage is described in detail in the tutorial that ships with the package.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel UFMC support, but instead we added the SID/STAR algorithms

ILS auto tuning:

If you select the departure and arrival runway via the appropriate FMGS page, the ILS for departure and arrival will be tuned automatically!

Experience improvements:

We added papelin's panel mod as part of the package (thanks papelin for your permission.)

We also added flyboy2006's HD sound package as part of the package. (thanks flyboy2006 for your permission!)

Concerning the manuals:

Unfortunately, time ran out to completely finalize the manuals. We will do this in the coming weeks and post the manuals here.

3rd party software compatibility:

We are now fully compatible with X-FMC.

We are also compatible with Autogate and most pushback plugin

With AirFMC, you can put our MCDU on an iPad.

Airbus A320 Fly By Wire Demo

Copyright Airbus This video is a good point to get familiar with the A320 FBW system. The aircraft used in the video is A320 MSN001, the flight test aircraft. It has some features which the production aircraft don't have (production aircraft is what we simulate): The AoA indicator next to the PFD is not present on production aircraft, therefore we don't have it During the High Angle of Attack protection demonstration, the pilot deactivates "Alpha Floor" (i.e. the engines spooling up) with the flick of a switch. to our understanding, this is a feature on the test aircraft to allow proper test of the "Alpha Prot" function. The possibility to cancel "Alpha Floor" while still in a high AoA regime does not exist on production aircraft. During the Alpha Prot demonstration, you can see that the pitch is limited to 25 degrees up. This is because the aircraft is in configuration full; otherwise the limit would be 30 degrees. This is not yet simulated on the QPAC A320, but it is on the list of things to improve in the near future.

FAQ

Were do we download an updated version? 

To get the new version just log into the .org store and download it again.

What is the pricing if I upgrade? 

An upgrade from a lower version is possible at any time for just the price difference between the two versions, so you don’t lose any money by trying out the simpler versions first and upgrade as you look for new challenges..

Is the Freeware shall available for download?

With the availability of version 2.0 we will not continue to support the freeware and will not offer the freeware for download.

The freeware version did not work with X-Plane 10, 64 bit. The actual version of our A320 is compatible with XP10 64 bit so it should work even if the freeware did not.

Do you have a tutorial video?

Tutorial videos are actually in production. Preliminary version is available in YouTube.

Further Videos will displayed in the dedicated Video section.
