Simcheck Airbus A300 B4-200

Compatibility: Flight Simulator X
The external model and virtual cockpit of this classic Airbus incorporate the latest modelling developments in animation, reflection and lighting.
 
The A300B4-200 series is a first generation Airbus with analogue steam gauges and an advanced autopilot for the era. Because the Airbus autopilot systems are so different from the FSX implementation of an autopilot, the unit in this add-on has been reinvented from scratch. Commands are sent to the elevator trim to control the attitude and bank angle of the aircraft based on so-called PID controllers, resulting in very realistic autopilot behaviour. The same goes for the autothrottle, so don`t be surprised if the aircraft is not able to maintain the correct airspeed in turbulent air. Do as the real pilots do - turn off the autothrottle and switch to manual control!
 
This aircraft was developed in cooperation with real pilots, the training department of a major cargo operator flying the A300, and based on experience in the full motion A300B4-203 simulator at Brussels Airport, Belgium.

Model specifications
 
  • FSX-only cargo and passenger 3D models
  • All passenger, belly and cargo doors can be opened and closed individually
  • Front and aft passenger stairs, fully moving cargo loader and GPU model. For users with AES or other ground scenery add-ons there is an option for hiding ground animations except for the GPU
  • Moving APU air inlet door
  • Low speed/high speed aileron split animations
  • Realistic spoiler animation
  • Main landing gear bogie tilt
  • Bump bitmaps
  • Retracting and extending main landing lights
  • Complete virtual cockpit with predefined camera positions
  • Textures from a number airlines are available
Sounds
 
  • High end 3D engine sound simulation
  • Cockpit switch sounds based on actual recording inside the cockpit
  • Wind sound from the landing gear and the rumble sound from the spoilers depend on speed and gear extension
  • Cockpit oral warnings based on real life recordings
Panel
 
  • Complete captain's and first officer's panels with independent gauges (except altimeter)
  • Independent standby altimeter
  • GPWS simulation with six modes
  • TCAS panel with realistic TA 
  • Comms panel with two independent NDss
Pedestal
 
  • Double INS/CDU system that allows manual waypoint entry but also running off an FSX XML flightplan. The INS will follow great circle flight path
  • Fuel panel with five fuel tanks, fuel dump gauge and fuel loading gauge. Both featuring realistic fuelling/defuelling and fuel dump speeds
  • APU panel that actually uses fuel from the correct tank(s), realistic start-up and shutdown times
  • Hydraulics panel with realistic use of hydraulic fluids and linked to the correct flight control surfaces
  • Pneumatics, packs, cabin temperature control and cabin pressurisation control with realistic simulation (e.g. open the door end the temperature will change depending on the external temperature), cabin differential pressure based on standard atmosphere correction for actual conditions)
  • Electrical panel with separate AC and DC systems
  • Autopilot and autothrottle based on PID controllers working like the real thing -  no FSX standard autopilot nor autothrottle used
  • ROLL and PITCH modes are simulated: Enter a roll and the aircraft will maintain the current bank angle (bank is automatically limited to 25°, bank angles < 5° will have the aircraft level the wings), set the aircraft to a certain vertical speed and the aircraft will maintain vertical speed
  • Realistic N1 limit computer
  • Settings panel with four predefined panel states, performance calculation (optimal/maximum levels based on gross weight), ability to call fuel truck, jetway etc.
  • Fully featured overhead panel with, amongst other things, Yellow AccuPressure simulation: No yellow Accupressure = no parking brake. Yellow Accupressure will last about 30 minutes before the parking brake is disconnected because of lack of pressurisation
  • Realistic pitch trim simulation
  • All panel settings are saved between sessions based on the name of the currently loaded flight
  • Drag-able speed bugs on the 2D panel
  • Drag-able altitude bug on the 2D panel
  • GDI-based airspeed indicator, RMI, ADI and HSI for smooth and accurate needle movements
Flight model
 
  • Realistic flight handling tested by a professional A300 Captain
  • Realistic engine performance in flight
  • Realistic fuel usage during flight and also during start-up and taxi
  • Realistic braking performance

System Requirements:


  • Flight Simulator X (Acceleration, Gold or SP2 required)
  • 2.0GHz or any Dual Core
  • 2GB RAM
  • 256MB graphics card
  • Windows 8 / 7 / XP (32-bit or 64-bit) / Vista
  • 800MB hard drive space
