There are several noticeable developments on the Airbus X-Plane avionics market:
- Skalarki – The UK A320 cockpit vendor is developing a driver allowing for compatibility with their hardware and X-plane.
- XHSI – Development of glass cockpit software compatible with existing X-Plane Airbus solutions in the market continues.
- Simloc – A research based simulation group in Spain developed an airbus avionics suite based on the freeware VASFMC.
According to their website:
Simloc’s A320 software development project started with the idea of completing what others had started earlier: the well-known VASFMC A320. Therefore, Simloc offers the new improved version of VASFMC free of charge, so that every professional and aviation fan can have professional A320 software at their disposal. To complete this professional software project, it was necessary to develop a series of additional modules to perfectly emulate the flight of an A320. After more than 12,000 hours in development, Simloc launches one of the best A320 software programs available, in two versions: LITE and PRO. These, combined with the VASFMC software, are the complements needed to enjoy a complete flight experience.
Availability of the software does not seem to be at the public domain at this stage however a video of their avionics suite is featured in this infomercial:
