CremonaSoft A310-304 released

A few days ago, CremonaSoft has publicly unveil their first aircraft product; the A310-304. The aircraft has now been released on the .org store. The second model from Airbus, the A310 and the A300 paved way for the widely popular A330 and awkward sister A340. CremonaSoft has offered two variants, the passenger variant and the -304 MRTT for in-flight refueling.

Feature List:

Flight Characteristics

  • Accurate weight distribution
  • Nice flight model

3D Model

  • Accurate, high quality external models for fuselage, wings, stabilizers and engines- derived from measurements for the real aircraft.

  • Engine reverser animations.
  • Detailed landing gear with claw angle and full animation.
  • Open/close animations for both cockpit windows and all exterior doors.
  • Highly detailed 3D cockpit with super-sharp 4K+ textures and 3D lighting.
  • Detailed 3D gauges, counters, switches and knobs with animations.
  • Metallic surface and glass reflection effects in X-Plane 11 render engine.
  • Detailed flight control and throttle animations.
  • Crisp 3D cabin.
  • Super-sharp external textures.
  • Accurate 3D reproduction of all external aircraft lighting.
