For FSX and P3D users, the Airbus A220 makes a unique and enjoyable range of aircraft to get used to flying. Bulky and powerful, they make challenging yet rewarding aircraft that, if you can tame, will be very enjoyable to fly.
This product collection gives you access to FSX and P3D v1-4 compatible takes on the Airbus A220-100 and Airbus A220-300 models.
Each model is designed to be frame-rate friendly and cost-friendly, so you enjoy an improved aviation experience from the cockpit of an Airbus.
The A220-100 was first introduced to modern aviation circles in 2013 when it took its first flight. By 2016, it was being used commonly by Swiss International Air Lines, Delta Airlines, airBaltic, and Korean Air among others.
Itís been produced since 2012, and in that time around 80 of these have been produced. Over 500 have been ordered, too, with many more likely to come. With over 100 seats and a maximum of 160 seats on the A220-300, this is a big and bulky twin-engine jet airliner. Itís become a major part of the Airbus model and performs very impressively in terms of fuel burning and reliability.
The model is growing in popularity, with Airbus opening two assembly lines for the aircraft, with the new base in Mobile, Alabama. Thanks to the spacious cargo size for each passenger and immense payloads of up to 18,711kg, the A220 series are aircraft that are more than capable of handling the load put on them. At around 35-38.7m in length, these are large aircraft for a medium-sized jetliner and will make excellent and challenging aircraft to fly for most virtual pilots.
As part of this add-on, you will receive:
- Two new models that cover the Airbus A220-100 and A220-300 aircraft.
- Six new repaints that cover various aviation partners who use(d) the Airbus A220.
- A fresh paint kit that allows you to easily design your liveries if required.
- New sounds to help match in with the original aircraft and its authentic sounds.
- A fully operational and working virtual cockpit that has been made for Airbus.
- 2D panels that have expandable screens for controlling each aspect of your flight.
- Air Swiss.

Virtualcol. They bring us everything. Atr, Dash 8, CRJs. And even though I use X Plane, I think these are realistic for the money. Because they are not maximum realism and Aerosoft level realistic, but youíre only paying £18 for a Bom... Ahem airbus A220, which not only is the only availible for FSX, but it is not available for X Plane. Which is why I bought it.
The exterior is just like the CS... Ahem A220 and has the signature big engines. But I donít spend my life looking at the exterior, which an FSX Player would do if they bought X Plane, because I am interested in the cockpit.
I mean, pilots fly from the cockpit, not the tail which is why I donít really care about the liveries, which is good because there are only 6 repaints for the -300 and 2 for the -100
The cockpit is great. Nice place to be. I like the glass cockpit and it is pleasant. The CS Ahem A220ís cockpit is well modelled and has good textures, and it is easy to understand, like an airbus should be.
X Plane is still better

A unique flying experience! I enjoy most parts of the aircraft; it's sounds (immense), flying dynamics, and autopilot. The overhead panel contains HD knobs and switches (imo. not sure if this is factual). I flew a simple flight yesterday as my first run and everything was clean, and a joy to fly. Also, this is an outstanding model considering how recent the real life A220 is. Highly recommended!
