Flight Sim Labs Release A319-X!


On Monday evening this week, Flight Sim Labs finally released their highly anticipated A319-X for Prepr3D!

In a post to their Facebook page, the development team wrote: “We’re pleased to announce the immediate release of our A319-X for Prepar3D v4.2 and v4.3! The smaller cousin in the A3xx Master Series family, the A319-X raises the bar for desktop flight simulation once again.”

They continued: “On top of the features already familiar from the A320-X – a robust Flight Management and Guidance System (FMGS) with ARINC-424 support for proper SID/STAR tracking and accurate lateral and vertical flight management, the entire range of A319-specific aircraft systems and the most accurate Fly-By-Wire representation ever seen in a desktop flight simulator – the A319-X includes a number of unique and exclusive developments, including:

  • Ground-breaking custom aircraft icing model, with dynamic build-up of ice based on actual atmospheric conditions and authentic effects on aircraft and engine performance and dynamic visual effects – check the aircraft is free of contamination during your walkaround, and see ice building in real time when flying through icing conditions
  • De- and anti-icing with realistic hold-over times, fully integrated with GSX de-icing equipment and unique de-icing fluid visual effects
  • The most realistic rain effects seen to date. Utilising over 500 textures, you’ll see dynamic drops, trickles, rain and streaks that appear, disappear and change direction dependent on the aircraft’s speed, the rate of precipitation and aircraft systems
  • Braking causes more trickles to run down the windscreen
  • Dynamic windshield dirt simulation including bug splatter tuned to occur only in the correct atmospheric conditions, seasons and over land mass
  • Dramatic St Elmo’s Fire simulation

“The A319-X features A319-specific flight dynamics, engine performance models and handling characteristics developed in consultation with real airline pilots and using thousands of data points derived from hundreds of test flights in the real aircraft. Both the CFM56-5B7 and IAE V2524-A5 engine variants are faithfully reproduced, including each engine type’s unique performance characteristics.”

“Each engine variant has its own sound set, utilising hundreds of recordings from the real aircraft and FSLabs’ unique 3D sound design techniques to provide a truly immersive and realistic sound experience from every angle, whether you’re in the cabin, on the flight deck or outside the aircraft.”
