Wide Body Sim Dev. – A350 XWB Advanced Series P3D4 Announcement

Wide Body Sim Development is a group of 3D designers and programmers with the project of building a style level simulator of the Airbus A350 XWB for P3D4+ only.

Based on a professional trainer, they are adapting the code for the flight simulator of Lockheed Martin. And they are also modelling the 3D virtual cockpit, pilots’ displays .. before the external model. Their press release relate they have also started the process for an Airbus licence.

“We are delighted to announce the development of our Airbus A350 for Prepar3D v4.4+. The A350 XWB is one of the most advanced long-range airliners in the world, yet an appropriate replica of this model for ἀight simulator is still missing.

For the past ten years, we have worked for a professional company in France which programs system trainers for airlines worldwide. Since my colleagues and I are flight simulator enthusiasts for quite a long time, we always had the dream of bringing the professional products we have developed to the flight simulation community. For the A350, this dream will become true.

After tough negotiations with our employer, we were able to draft an agreement which allows us bringing the system trainer’s code to flight simulator. Because of licensing issues, this is only possible for the professional market. Hence, we will develop our A350 XWB Advanced product series for Prepar3D v4.4+ only.

While it is still too early for a complete feature overview, we can assure that our A350 XWB will feature study-level systems close to the real-world counterpart. Essentially, the systems are being ported over from the professional platform to Prepar3D. Working together with Airbus for many years, we are also in the process of obtaining an official license for our product.

While porting over the systems sounds quite easy, it is not. Our current timeframe aims for a release in early to mid-2020. If the successor of Prepar3D v4 will be release at this time, we will most likely adopt to the new platform by providing free upgrades to our customers. At this time, we work hard porting over the systems and are joined by a very talented 3D-artist who is developing the model.”
