We really ooohhh’d and aaawww’d when Project Airbus released the A320 v2 for FS2004. Then we ooohhh’d and aaawww’d a bunch more when they released the A321 with new features not found on their legendary A320. At this point, the A320 was antiquated and there really wasn’t much reason to continue ooohhh’ing and aaawww’ing about it.
Well, we can now ooohhh and aaawww again when we fly the Project Airbus A320 v2.1. The latest update combines the legendary A320 with the awesome new features of the A321, including:
- Wing flex
- Improved A321 engine nacelles
- Modeled wiper blades
- Additional antenna
- Reshaped APU
- Revised cargo door animation
The official release and documentation is in this Project Airbus forum post. Downloads are available at the PA download section or via Avsim. Note, you must download the base pack AND a livery pack for it to work.
Once downloaded, prepare yourself for some serious ooohhhh’ing and aaawwww’ing. I am in the process of putting this update through its paces, so more will come later.
A note on FSX compatibility. This model was built for FS2004 and no FSX model exists. While you can load it into FSX yourself, your experience may vary and there will be limited support.
Cheers! Happy Airbus’ing!
