Airbus to Officially License Flight Sim Products!

0

Airbus today announced that they will be officially licensing flight simulator products.

It’s something that Boeing has been doing for some time with PMDG but Airbus is opening it up to a much wider range of products from multiple developers and platforms.

In a statement on their website, Airbus wrote: “Airbus is taking steps to work more closely with the computer gaming industry, encouraging the development of flight entertainment simulations, games, apps and add-ons while ensuring best use of the Airbus brand and image. When this relationship results in authorised use, developers and flight simulation enthusiasts will be able to apply the “Airbus officially licensed product” label.

A campaign will be launched this year to communicate with the sector, and new releases also will be monitored – with Airbus approaching third-party companies about becoming licensed.  There is real enthusiasm inside Airbus for this new strategy, which is drawing on cross-functional expertise from the company’s operations in Toulouse, France; Hamburg, Germany; and India, according to Heike Blum, Legal Counsel, Intellectual Property (IP).

There is real enthusiasm inside Airbus for this new strategy, which is drawing on cross-functional expertise from the company’s operations in Toulouse, France; Hamburg, Germany; and India, according to Heike Blum, Legal Counsel, Intellectual Property (IP). She added: “Experts with Airbus from Customer Services, Training, Contracts and Communications are involved.”

I’d hazard a guess and say that companies such as FlightSimLabs and Aerosoft will most likely be seeking official licensing, in fact in our interview with Aerosoft’s CEO at Flight Sim Con 2016 where he stated that Aerosoft wanted a closer relationship with Airbus.
