JarDesign A330 – Bad as A320?

A330 is a wide-body passenger jet for 335 passengers (estimate). There is probably just one version for X-Plane 11, and that is JarDesign A330. As usual, I would like to say thank you to JarDesign for making this possible by giving us a free copy. Let’s get into the review!

Interior

In terms of interior, the cockpit is quite average. It’s not perfect nor good, but it’s not bad. Instruments by themselves are quite good, but the surroundings are quite bad. As you can see on the screenshot below, the instruments are fine, but the surrounding is very poorly designed.

Exterior

The exterior of JarDesign A330 is really bad. There are a lot of bugs included, for example, the landing gear, when you zoom out and look at landing gear, there are white lines which divide the landing gear in multiple rectangles (as you can see below). Then there are wings, when you’re landing or taking off, the smoke from engines is going through the wings. It basically doesn’t act like a solid material. It might seem like details, but when you’re flying, it just ruins the experience. And there are a lot of other small bugs.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I would not recommend anyone to buy this aircraft. For 60 USD (without VAT) it is too expensive in my opinion. The state in which is the aircraft currently in is quite bad and if I were you I would wait for an update or a discount. If I should rate this plane from 0 to 10 I would give it a 5. Why? Overall the aircraft isn’t finished yet and there is a lot of work that needs to be done on this aircraft.

I've been a flight sim enthusiast for some time now, and I've always enjoyed flying to various destinations all over the world, but my favourite airport is by far Corfu. I started this news site in May 2019 and since then my main goal is to keep you informed about the latest stuff happening on the scene.
