I have been meaning to post a video of the Advanced for some time. Below is a link to an 'unofficial' video of my last trip from Athens to Milan. The Video is fairly low quality as it was recorded on a video camera filming the screen, I tried fraps and even short videos were comming out too large even after compression.

This Video is 45mins long and covers the FMGS setup, Taxi and Take off (inculding a demo of ALT Law) and the descent and landing into Milan with a few failures thrown in. Again, this is not an offical video and it does not mean Airsimmer are about to release the Advanced or the final testing has begun.

I should also point out, everything you see in this video is already available in the Basic, minus the ECAM MEMO's,INIT-B and Fuel predictions.

The Video is still quite large (1.3gig) At some pont I will split it up and upload to Youtube but more then likely I will create a better quality video and use that instead.
Kind Regards
Rob Prest

Hi Rob,

Clicking the link generates the below message, guess the video is popular...


"Error (509)

Hey Bob, not sure why it says that when only 43 people have viewed the link so far.  I will try to get this uploaded elsewhere in the morning.

Thanks for the vid !!!

No,  the fuel loading you see in the video is an external program running off a networked computer. Just got home so will check the status of the YouTube uploads.

First two links - As mentioned, poor quality  but it will give you a little idea of some of the extra features that have been available for a while in the Advanced.

I am going to hold off on uploading the landing until I go to sleep, I have some tech support to do, my internet is slow at the moment and the uploads make things 100 times worse

Hi.

Btw:

->   Did they fix the autopilot/ autothrust system ?

->   Did they fix the engine-system. ( E.g when you take off with FLEX 42 and you switch to CLB thurst at e.g 1500ft the thrust goes up instead of down) ?

->  When will AS release the advanced for the testpilots?



Kind regards

@ Christoph :

I recommend TOPCAT. It's very good. It calculates you the CG etc.

I have to be completely honest here, we discussed in private that you will be contacted when they get to that stage, no one else that received a reply from Zoya regarding testing has continued to ask me about it. Please be patient.

I cannot go into any details regarding the aircraft. You can make what you will from the videos, I will have the descent,approach and landing uploaded tomorrow and then I will make some more videos over the next few weeks demonstrating various aspects of the simulation.

Kind regards
Rob Prest

Thanks a lot Maurice.

Is-it the program you use Rob ? Maybe you can ask to the dev department to include this featue through the tablet via the "Live" section...

Thanks for the videos ;-)

I use TOPCAT Via a networked machine to load the aircraft and a sepearate program called Fuel Loader v1.2.1.0 by a company called 'Simulation Hardware'

I am pretty sure Fuel Loader is freeware on Avsim now. If you find it you will have to configure it to work properly with the AS A320, Wingtip tanks first then wing tanks and center tank last.

Hello Rob, I`ve watched the videos and the bus seems to be perfect. Can you tell me if there is a lot to do or just some adjustments?

This advanced version seems just what all airbus lovers are waiting for..great!!
but unfortunately,knowing airsimmer policy, I think we have still to wait..maybe a long wait.
I would like to ask many things...in particular if some annoying problems I (we) have with the basic are solved (AP, navigation and descent problems, ctd, etc), even because I don't care to manage failures if I cannot manage normal procedures...at the moment the basic it is pretty flyable, but require in my opinion to much compromise if compared to other payware add-on.
But Robert I know you cannot answer to my questions...

What landing lights are you using?Are they custom or a third part add-on?
