NEWS! - Aircraft Announcement : Toliss notes the Airbus A330 as next project




At the developers conference in early February 24 in Toronto... ToLiSS put up a chart in the session to note the already released fleet from the developer, but of also which aircraft could come up for development next...


Candidates included the A318, A330ceo, A330neo, A340-200/300 and of course the Airbus A380. The A350 (v2) has already been announced as a joint project with FlightFactor (same arrangement as the current FF A350) at the same conference.


The choice is now between the A330ceo (Current Engine Option), and the A330neo (New Engine Option)...  image depicted here is the default Laminar A330-300, so it is a not a signal of the coming ToLiSS A330 type.




The question "But Which One?", will keep you guessing, but on past record ToLiSS has usually kept away from competing directly with already released products, also they usually always do the NEO versions of the same aircraft (hint A320neo, A321neo). So the A330neo is probably the pick of the two versions. And into also not competing directly with the same A330-300 Laminar offering.


The A330neo has two variants, the -800 based on the older ceo -200 and -300 variants, that has a range of 8,150 nmi (15,090 km; 9,380 mi) with 257 passengers. The second variant is the -900, it covers a range of 7,200 nmi (13,330 km; 8,290 mi) with 287 passengers. Both variants are powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 which has double the bypass ratio of its predecessor.


ToLiss Features include...

Accurate Systems
  • ToLiss Fly-by-wire and autopilot module, with support for Alternate and Direct Law
  • Unique feature: Control Surface hinge moment modelling allows the surfaces to float to the appropriate position after loss of all actuators on a surface or to not reach full deflection if running on a single actuator.
  • fault injection interface allowing to inject custom selected failures, or randomly selected failure based on fault probabilities with over 210 failure modes available.
  • Custom TCAS with resolution advisory function.
  • Terrain on ND and Weather radar available (WX radar works with default X-plane weather engine)
  • Brake temperature model based on the detailed physics of heat transfer between the individual brake components
  • Hydraulics model with proper hydraulic flow computation as function of surface motion, flap/slat motion, gear extension etc. You will see this by the pressure dropping when flying on RAT
  • Custom engine model for accurate thrust and fuel flow modelling including oil pressure and temperature model as well as many engine failure modes. Thrust and fuel flow modelled for each engine type. Special engine logics, such as dual cooling on the PW1127G engine, are also modelled.
  • Detailed model of each ADIRU including alignment, small pressure sensor differences between the units, switching of sources for PFDs and Aps
  • Quantitative bleed system modelling affecting engine fuel flow
  • Electrical system simulation with correct bus reconfiguration and load distribution, simulated electrical transients as well as emergency generation from the blue hydraulic system.
  • Fire detection simulation for engines and APU
  • Custom radio navigation computations including ability to perform backup RADNAV tuning through the RMPs
  • Custom air conditioning model supporting high altitude operations at airports like Cusco in Peru or La Paz in Bolivia without spurious warnings
  • Flight warning system with ECAM actions supporting numerous system failure scenarios, e.g. engine failures, generator failures, hydraulic failures.
  • Custom indicating system including DMC and SDAC simulation.
  • Choice between Multifunctional runway lights or the classic landing light configuration

Useability features

  • Situation loading and saving. It is possible to save the flight at any point in time and resume it another day. This can also be used, e.g., to save the position just before approach and practice just the approach many times. This feature reinstates the complete aircraft state (except communications with ATC, such as AOC and CPDLC messages or ground service states.)
  • Autosaving allows recovering where you left off, should the X-Plane session end unexpectedly.
  • Jumping waypoint-to-waypoint through the cruise phase: Shorten your flight to focus on the more interesting parts as you like.
  • Integrated takeoff performance calculator supporting the use of flex temperature.
  • 4 different start-up configurations from Cold and Dark to engines running and ready to go
  • In-screen popup displays or use of x-plane windows for popups
  • Interactive audio control panel to change ground services, fuel, loading, passengers etc. without breaking immersion
  • Electronic flight bag on both sides with Avitab integration, weight and balance computation, take-off and landing performance calculator as well as a user customizable interactive checklist.
  • Print function for AOC messages, CPDLC messages and selected FMGS functions


Release would be around October, as this is also a ToLiSS release period with the other time in being March...


ToLiSS notes that the new A330 is obviously compatible with X-Plane 12, but will also support X-Plane 11 backwards compatibility, but without the X-Plane 12 effects.


Start saving now, price should be around US$89.99!
