As you might imagine, the design style itself is based entirely on the real thing - it's made to look genuine and takes in all of the smallest details to combine and perfect the look, shape, feel and characteristics of the A319 in real life. The exterior model has undergone some serious re-construction, using hours of footage and information to come up with the most genuine look and feel of the aircraft that the simulator can handle.
The new interface mentioned above has been added in to give you absolute functionality over your performance in the skies - it's been designed in a way that utilizes all that is good about the A319 and gives you total control over it.

It's these small inclusions and changes that make all of the difference to your own flight experience, making it easier than ever before to get truly engaged in the flight and really feel the part
Additionally, some of the surfaces of the aircraft have been animated - such as the flaps, elevators, spoilers and other smaller effects to make the aircraft feel as real as it possibly can without ever slowing down or hampering performance

3/5 Verified Purchase
Standard 2D panel, the sounds are rather blagh...the 3D panel is hard to read unless you have it zoomed up a lot.
Granted it is a low price, even for a product that is dated, so in that regard it would be just fine for a beginner
