• Review: Aerosoft A330 Professional

    Aerosoft offers a wide range of sophisticated Airbus models for Prepar3D v4, with the latest being the Airbus A330 Professional. This bigger brother to the ubiquitous A320 family has become the primary plane reviewer Alex Dickinson wants to fly each time he fires up the simulator. He finds it both flies and looks great, and liked it so much that we've given it one of our rare Excellence Awards.

    Would you be surprised to find one of the latest sims actually runs well on older systems? Author Kenneth J. Kerr found that was just the case with Aerofly FS 2.
