LatinVFR is gearing up to introduce two new Airbus airplanes for Microsoft Flight Simulator: the A330 and the A340. According to our friends at FSElite, who broke the news, LatinVFR is expanding its existing portfolio of mid-level narrow-body Airbus aircraft (the A318, A319, A320 and A321) to include these larger, wide-body variants. A trailer video from AviationLads was also dropped today showcasing the A330, which is the first in line for a release this week!
A330neo landing very soon
First up is the Airbus A330neo, which is scheduled for release on Thursday, October 19, 2023, via the in-sim Marketplace. The A330neo will come equipped with customized systems designed to simulate point-to-point flights, which is a way to say it will be pretty capable for undemanding users but shallow for those looking for utmost realism.
For those who like to have all their flight planning tools in one place, the onboard EFB will offer integration with SimBrief and Navigraph Charts. This means you can pull up your flight plans and navigational charts without ever leaving the sim, which is definitely nice.
A340 series also in the works
While the A330neo is the headline today, let’s not forget that the A340-300 is also in the final stages of development and will be released shortly. Eventually, the A330-200CEO and A340-600 will also follow next year.
LatinVFR has plans to continue updating these aircraft, much like they’ve done with their narrow-bodied Airbus planes.
