Aircraft Release : QPAC Airbus A320-232


QPAC (QualityPark AviationCenter) has released Version-2 (v2) of the Airbus A320-232.




The v2 release is based on the freeware (v1), but it has been extensively revised and it is to be noted that this first release "basic" version is focused on systems, and that systems and features will be added with more extensive procedures as the series progresses.


The current rollout is noted as such:


v2 will be available in three categories (releases noted here are forecasted and are not set definite dates):

- Basic (Now Available) - US$25.00 - Shop.OrgStore : QPAC Airbus A320
- Plus (available May 2014) - US$40.00
- Premium
(available December 2014) - US$70.00

The v1.1 version will still be freeware for X-Plane 9 and X-Plane 10 - 32bit.




Currently the cockpit is 2d and there will be a 3d cockpit and wing-flex will also be available in (late) 2014 at a noted additional cost. All payware versions will be 32bit-64bit but the premium version will not be available for X-Plane9.

  • 3D Cockpit will be available via an upgrade (small fee) in EARLY2014


which is it, early or late?   if early, May is not early imo, Jan-March?   Thanks
