ToLiss has dropped the latest update for their original aircraft, the Airbus A319. The update, detailed by the developer only just over a week ago, brings many new realism enhancements to the aircraft and simulation.

Major new features of the update include custom waypoint support, GLS approaches and a completely new and revamped bleed air system.

This update to the A319 is also to make its way to the A321 in the near future with the developer writing:

“Once the A319 V1.6 is released, we will incorporate the same changes in the A321 and A321 NEO (with a couple of undisclosed NEO specific additions) for V1.3 of those products.”

Here’s the full changelog:

Major new features:

  • Pilot item database allowing the creation and storage of custom waypoints, including associated page reconfigurations on DIR TO, FPLN, RAD NAV page etc.
  • Bleed system upgrade to a quantitative bleed model affecting fuel consumption and take-off thrust
  • Support for LDA, IGS, Localizer Back course and GLS approaches
  • Complete rework of the PERF pages to add EO mode information as well as climb/descent predictions to a given altitude
  • Rework of the PROG page to include EO mode information including an indication of OEI gross ceiling and predictive GPS function

Minor new features:

  • When flying the IAE engine, the EWD now properly supports revision to N1 Mode
  • TO performance calculator also determines whether packs need to be ON or OFF for the take-off.
  • Complete redo of the SD pages ENG, BLEED, PRESS, and F/CTL for better representational accuracy

  • FPLN page additional information: The Final approach slope is now shown
  • Improved the lateral-directional handling qualities in manual flight
  • Changes to altitude and speed constraints of the active flight plan create a TEMPY flight plan.

Bug fixes:

  • Corrected PFD speed bug location during Go Around
  • Prevented waypoint sequencing when flying in HDG mode in the opposite direction of FMS path at current TO waypoint
  • Fixed ILS indication location on PFD
  • Improved AP vertical target tracking when flying with high Angles of Attack
  • Fine-tuning of the graphical representation in the EWD.
  • Speed target for flap 3 landings is back to VAPP
  • Waypoints can now be added at end of FPLN directly on the FPLN A page.
  • Fixed issues with ground rolling and flap extension sounds
  • Preventing engagement of both APs for a non-precision approach.
