FSLabs A321-X Released

FlightSimLabs, also known in the community as FSLabs, today released A321-X for Prepar3D v4.4+. The release was announced via FlightSimLabs forums by Lefteris Kalamaras.

The A321-X is the first aircraft title to feature a fully integrated CPDLC system, giving customers the unique opportunity to interact with ATC via datalink communications.

The aircraft features, for example, PBR textures, both CFM56-5-B3 and IAE 2533-A5 engine variants, new cabin camera system which will enable you to check the passengers in the cabin or a new fuel system which no longer transfers the fuel in the tanks using electric pumps, but using a jet-pumps. FlightSimLabs also featured a very close integration with GSX Level 2.

If you want to purchase the aircraft, you can do so via the FlightSimLabs website for $59,99 instead of the normal $69,99. Make sure you already own the A320-X since the A321-X is just an addition to the A320-X.

Unique Features:

  • High detail modeling with full PBR textures on the external model.
  • The first aircraft title featuring CPDLC allowing users the unique opportunity to interact with ATC via datalink communications.
  • A unique to the A321 fuel system without outer wing tanks found in other A32X variants, plus optional additional center tanks (ACTs) allowing a total fuel capacity of 23,770kg and increasing flight time by up to 7 hours.
  • 60 additional flight warning computer sheets of logic specifically for the A321-X variant.
  • A new high-definition takeoff performance system generating precise performance features for a given takeoff runway.
  • Custom ground friction models to simulate proper ground handling (single engine taxi).
  • Brake models tuned to match real world performance in all weather environments
  • Over 60,000 electrical components simulated and connected via simulated electrical and data driven networks.
  • Complete flight control system, featuring Normal Law, Alternate Law, Abnormal Attitude Law, Direct Law and Mechanical Backup. The Fly-By-Wire system faithfully represents the feeling of flying the real world aircraft
