A320NEO etc.
« on: July 20, 2011, 07:53:11 PM »
Is the A320NEO going to feature in this game world? And the re-engined 737?

Neither as they are not in the database. Plus nobody really knows anything about them in terms of performance so unless somebody can get a source with good predictions it will stay that way.

(There's no such aircraft as "re-engined 737" even at the drawing board yet. Even though AA signed a letter of intent for that.)

I'll take that as a 'no' then?

We will get it around the same time we get re-engined DC 8s ... and that DID happen.

Based on that logic the CS, ARJ, MRJ, A350 etc. shouldn't be in the game.

We can't have some future aircraft and not others.

Somebody must have found a reliable data source so that these models can be included.  

AWS is an on-going project and so not very aircraft is in the database past, present or future.  We've only had Comets in the last couple of months and the Constellation has never made it in yet.

If you can find all the data required then I'm sure Sami would add it :)

Tried it, but he refused as the he believes (as I'm sure with his extensive experience with the aircraft) the mitsubishi Mu-2 was not used as an air taxi.  Where m father an owner and operator of it for 15 years guarantees me it has and still is today. 

Not trying to be mean about it, but its the truth, and Im sorry its the kind of aircraft that no many people have experience on and I highly doubt sami has had any experience with it.

Isn't the data for the 787 wildly inaccurate? I hardly think that the data needs to be 100% accurate, I for one wouldn't mind slightly inaccurate data if it meant a new aircraft model in the game mixing things up a bit. I highly doubt that the CSeries, ARJ, MRJ etc. are going to have much more accurate figures than the A320NEO.

It'd be as simple as taking the fuel burn figures for current A320s and subtracting 15% or so. It's crude, but it'd be an adequate solution.

Only the first 787s have poor efficiency.  That is because they often weigh much heavier.  At least there are something like 30 787s built (without engines).  There won't be any NEOs built for a long time.

An MRJ or CSeries hasn't even flown yet we have both of those aircraft in the game.

The manufacturers still provide rather accurate data of them (all weights, range predictions etc). As for Airbus; nada..

Not to be a downer because I really appreciate all your work Sami, but...

The B737NG is basically a re-engined B737CL, yes it has glass cockpit and so on but the A320NEO will, as the B737NG, have an updated wing, new avionics, new engines and other minor tweaks.

Hope you can get some figures from somewhere soon because the NEO will be a nice replacement for all those who operate A320s, B737s and B757s and want something slightly bigger than the CSeries.

Anyhow I support the idea of having the A320 "classic" with 15% lower fuel flow and similar seating.

I would only find ^^^^ fair if they make the NEO a different fleet group.  Kind of like how the classics are separate from the nextgen.

Not more then fair as they probably will be IRL, at least a conversion course for all maintenance personnel (maybe also flight crew) and quiet a lot more spare parts as many systems will be new/modified.

Has the new 737 engine variant been added?  The C56-7BE.
