Quick update on what's going on as of revision 451:
- Whole AC Config and readme has been reviewed in light of recent comeback of Josh, including thumbnail.
- FMGC upgrades by Josh.
- Brand new sound effects for thunderstorms, in addition to other tweaks and ported over from A320.
More to come soon!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: From now on, A330 will work correctly only on 2020.1.1+ since me and Josh discovered issues with previous versions. Therefore if you wish to fly it, make sure you have that version or a newer one installed. Thanks for your attention and safe flights!

Good day to the members of the FlightGear community!

I started the A330 with the IDG-A33X a year or two ago, though at the time, I had a problem of fully understanding the systems and such that when I did flights, I would usually start with “Ready for Takeoff” configuration, and start the flight. Fast forward to just about two months ago and after a year-ish long hiatus to FG, I decided to re-enter...with the first flight being in an A330. After a few more A330 flights, a tutorial on how to fly the omega95 version of the A330, and a guide to initialising the CDU of the A320 (though the A330 seems to have a similar, if not the same, CDU as the A320), I decided to make an A330 step-by-step process to flying the aircraft, including CDU initialisation, and calculations for fuel, cost index, V1, VR and V2 speeds and FLEX TO TEMP.

The guide is technically for both the IDG-A33X (and the successor A330 by J Maverick 16) and the omega95 version of the A330. However, because most of the flights I performed were in the one created by the IDG group and the successor A330 by J Maverick 16, I decided to share to you the guide I made so to make the A330 less intimidating, especially to newer players who may be confused with how to fly it.

The step-by-step guide is provided below, though I personally request that the guide be continuously developed...

PM me in case if there are any errors or any modifications that you wish to make.

FirstOfficerDelta: This looks more like procedures or a tutorial than a checklist as a checklist is just there to verify, that you haven't forgot anything.

The real airbus checklists fit on an A4 page.

Regardless of the format, it is indeed a great tool for pilots who want to fly the A330! Thanks for resharing this with the public, if you don't mind I'd like to include it as documentation in the repository, as long as you're ok with it :wink:.
Cheers, Mav

Hey there! decided to go back to modelling but I couldn't learn how to use the old version of blender and when I use the new one, all the coordinates of all the models in the cockpit become 0,0,0.

Is there a fix for this as I really prefer the new blender

I think we need way more information to help you there:
*) I suppose you mean new blender version as 2.8X?
*) How do you open the models? Are you using the AC3D import? In that case which plugin?
*) What do you mean by _all_ coordinates becoming 0|0|0 ? Could you show a screenshot?

Has been a long time since I actually used blender (gave up on it) I'll tell you the rest after I redownload the plane but yes I do use 2.8x
