What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After many years of development we are now at a point where we can let the community participate in the development of our new Flight Simulator.

Our goal is to involve our player community as much as possible in the evolution of the game, and we think the best way to achieve that is to get the game in the hands of players as early as possible. We intend to maintain a good quality of experience throughout the Early Access phase, while we build new features and expand the overall flight experience. We invite the community to follow our progress in details and share their thoughts and suggestions on the progress of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The exact date for coming out of Early Access will depend on feedback but we estimate sometime in the third or fourth quarter of 2016.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There will never be specific "Early Access" and "Full Version" versions of Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator. The full version of Aerofly FS 2 is simply when we decide that the game is now at a state we consider it ready for a launch. The full version will incorporate feedback from the wide community and further improve the overall flight experience as our goal is to create one of the best virtual flight experiences.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator is stable, playable and already features most of the elements of the full version. During Early Access expect to see more features and possibly new aircraft as well as airports. We will most likely rework and polish some aspects of the user-interface as well as the navigation feature depending on the community feedback.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the game will be lower priced through Early Access, relative to its final full-version retail price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our community will be the most important aspect of Aerofly and its future. We need the community feedback to better understand your needs and wishes to create the best virtual flight experience and to decide whether to put our development emphasis on graphics, gameplay or aircraft system depth.

So please get involved at our forums at http://www.ipacs.de/forum and send us feedback, bug reports and ideas for new content or game play.”

Q400 Aircraft and Major Update Released Today!





Greetings Fellow Simmers,
The time has come for the release of the Dash 8 Q400 aircraft and we are as excited as you are for its debut. A lot of work has gone into this aircraft and the result has allowed for additional functionality not only in the Q400 but for any other aircraft that utilizes advanced autopilot features.

The Q400 is released as a free DLC, so be sure to look out for that. There is also an update to the Aerofly FS2 core engine.

Now for the good stuff! Let's begin with a summary of what has been added to this update:
• Updates to the advanced autopilot systems seen in the A320, B737, B747, C90Gtx, Lj45 and now the Q400.
• Fixes to the shimmering buildings and houses seen by some users
• Improvements to the night lighting and a fix to the flickering lights seen at night.
• The ability to now define a user folder in a new location/drive.
• Overhauled auto thrust system
• Added FMS features to the navigation displays of all airliners; example, top of descent, vertical and lateral deviation from flight plan.
• Added crew alerting system (CAS) added to LJ45 and B747 with takeoff configuration warnings, autopilot and auto-throttle disconnect warnings
• Improved the fly by wire of the A320 (this is still a work in progress)
• Modernized A320 displays; more realistic look and greatly increased functionality
• Adjusted flight models
• Updated controls
• added auto-throttle disconnect

Now let's take a look at the Dash 8 Q400:

• Liveries; Austrian Airlines, Canada Express, Flybe, Horizon Alaska, Celebration and Green, Sata, and SkyWork
• full rigidbody simulation of the fuselage, wings, stabilizers, gear and propeller (customary for all Aerofly FS 2 aircraft) with accurate flight model which is fairly close to real world numbers during climb, cruise and descent
• simulated prop wash effects on wing, gyroscopic effects of the large propellers which require a bit of trimming on pitch, yaw and roll axis when power changes
• custom engine physics for the PW150A turboprop engine using real world physics laws and no "lookup table" calculations
• realistic engine shut-down and preliminary failure of other systems with engine off
• engine start; physically accurate simulation with starter connected to high pressure shaft
• engine has realistic heat capacity and cools down when its off
• custom FADEC simulation
• new governor implementation
• custom rendering algorithm for all displays
• glass cockpit functionality
• ARCDU (audio radio control display unit)
• all clickspots have been prepared and are available; most switches already work but not all systems are modeled yet
• a lot of the push buttons are animated to give better feedback
• Updated sounds

There is a lot to be excited about. For a complete and impressive listing of all new features packed into this update visit the change log notes: https://www.aerofly.com/aerofly_fs_2/dokuwiki/doku.php/manual:early_access_changelog#section20170726

Also be sure to thank Jan, Marc, Andreas, and the rest of the IPACS team for the amount of work that they did to provide you with this feature packed update.
