IDG-A32X 1-year Anniversary Flight

Postby Wecsje » Mon Nov 06, 2017 11:28 pm

Dear fellow FlightGear members,

A word from it0uchpods:
The original IDG-A32X project was built May 2016. I had taken the A320neo cockpit and systems and converted them to the A320-family, which was the non-neo versions only. However, it was not released or finished, as I ran into several issues. This project was left on my old hard drive untouched. I finally became frustrated with the A320s available then, and decided to once again create a new A320 with the new cockpit and FDM of the A320neo. This was done on November 4, 2016, and the new "A320Family" consisting of only the A320-232, (A320-200-IAE) was available. Development was slow, and sorting out the FDM took a while, as I was dealing with JSBsim for the first time. In early 2017, the "A320Family" became my main project, with the beginnings to the advanced FADEC and other systems in place. This is when Jonathan Redpath (legoboyvdlp) joined our team, as a developer. He was responsible for many systems such as the ADIRS, RAT, and more. As more work was done, and most major systems were added, including FlyByWire, the "A320Family" was quickly becoming quite complex, and now had a learning curve. The initial MCDU work began in summer 2017, and our project had impressed Charlie Schwehm (Wecsje) on Discord, and he began flying our airplane. Shortly after, he joined us as public relations, help answer questions, provide support and communication to users. His addition allowed Jonathan and I to focus more on developing. Confusion with the old "A320-family" caused us to rename the aircraft to IDG-A32X, to distinguish our version from the rest. In October 2017, Thorsten Herrmann (TH-555) joined us and provided a much improved and new Virtual Cockpit, which is much more accurate to the real cockpit. On November 4th, 2017, the IDG-A32X turned one year old, and we are very proud with what we have accomplished in that time, and we assure you, there is much more to come!

To celebrate this, we plan to have a group flight from EDDM to EDHI, and then onwards to EDDF. EDHI (Hamburg Finkenwerder) is where one of the Airbus factories is located, and is an airport and seaport combined (Elbe river is next to it). Most of the A320ceo/neo production line is located there, and, there is some nice scenery in FG.
Which scenery do I need? EDDM, EDHI (EDDH area), EDDF, and everything in between (terraSync, terraGIT should both be fine).
Comms will be on the FG Community Discord (https://discord.gg/DW23dnf).

Date: Saturday 18th November 2017
Time: meetup at 17:30UTC, departure at 18:15UTC. ETA on ending time: TBD
Location: initial meetup at EDDM, for spawn positions see below.

Sorry for that :(

For me and East US it's 1200, for West US is 0900, for Wecs and Europe is 1800

We had to compromise where most of users seem to be located -- sorry.

Kind Regards,
Josh
