Any development updates?



  • Hi,

    I'm sorry for being "that guy", but I'm really excited for the A300. While I know that an April release is unlikely, still eagerly waiting for at least some development updates. Will there be anything exciting about the A300 rather soon, like more previews?

    Thanks in advance.

    Same! The A300 looks so beautiful, XP 11 already got the iniBuilds one and now we will also recieve a good A300. I love it that we will also have a FMS option. Let's hope that we will see it in May. I also can't wait for the Fokker F28, would be nice to hear from this one too, we know more about the A300 than the Fokker F28.



  • I guess there aren't much development updates yet ­čś×
    I just hope the project is going well.



  • @BiologicalNanobot Last update suggests they're in the pre-release grind of finding and squashing bugs along with general refinement, so likely no updates until that process is well on the way to being completed.
    Advantage is that once that is done there won't be too long before release, and then we can enjoy what is looking to be a very nicely-polished aircraft



  • @SimeonWilbury Thank you! While I'm impatient I'd also rather wait to have a finished and nicely-polished aircraft than get an incomplete one early. I was worried that development was stuck on a dead-end, so I guess this is most likely not the case.

    There are plenty of projects getting close to completion and we only have a relatively small team so it's a case of priorities too. Stuff like the Turbo Arrow, 146 Professional are all but done but require management tasks to bring them to completion and release state. Whilst that happens not too much more happens to the A300 for instance. Added to that, Martyn, our Head of Development has been spending some time off of late for his paternity leave after becoming a proud dad a week or so back so all those things, and other everyday task, all combine, meaning progress isn't plain sailing at the end of the development process.

    We hope to have the A300 wrapped up, tested, and ready for release in May. That's our current belief and target.

    Thanks.



  • @Voice-of-Reason Congratulations to Martyn, paternity leave is very important and I hope he has a good time off with his new child. I hope that the A300 is ready for release in May, but if not, there is at least very good reason behind the delay.



  • @Voice-of-Reason thank you for the insight, and congratulations to Martyn!



  • @Voice-of-Reason Also congratulations to Martyn! By the way, how is the Fokker F28 going? Will we have a release expectation in May? And will we also recieve a Garmin integration┬┤if you want one?
