Native Airbus A330-900neo for MSFS

The A330-900neo is a wide-body jet airliner manufactured by Airbus.

It is an evolution of the popular A330-300 with new improved wings and modern high bypass engines (Rolls-Royce Trent 7000) for better fuel efficiency.

The first A330-900neo entered service on December 15 2018 with launch partner airline TAP Portugal, it can carry up to 287 passenger with a range of 13300 km.

Introduce

This project was originally started by Philippe Marion before being completely re-worked from the ground up by Headwind, to make it fully compatible for MSFS. This is not a study level aircraft, however it allows to make complete flights.

Simbrief Profile : Simbrief don't offer the A330-900neo profile but you can add this custom profile : https://www.simbrief.com/system/dispatch.php?sharefleet=352855_1650394989146

Key features
  • 4K PBR textures
  • Native wingflex and engine torque (first freeware aircraft with this feature)
  • Custom flight model
  • MSFS native effects and materials
  • Semi-customised cockpit
  • based on FBW A32NX system
Installation
  • Please remember to delete your previous headwind-a330neo from your community before installing an update. Don't override.
  • Simply drag and drop the headwind-a330neo folder into your community.
  • Remember to calibrate the trottle from the tablet (EFB).
  • Keep in mind that the first loading can be a bit slow.

More:

  • You don't need any FBW A32NX installed : This A330-900neo is standalone.
  • Chokes and plots are visible when Beacon switch is OFF, engines is OFF and parking break switch is ON
  • Cockpit is based on the default A320 cockpit but semi-customised. This is not perfect but a few changes make it a bit different from an A320 cockpit.
  • This is a beta and free version, please be cool.
Important informations

This aircraft systems are forked from the great FBW A32NX project, version 0.7.4. This means that the systems are more advanced than on the default Asobo A320. A cold and dark start requires some knowledge. If you don't know how to start an Airbus, I invite you to follow this tutorial.

If you are not familiar with the FBW A32N project, I invite you to consult the FBW official website and the documentation here.

A huge thank you to the FBW team without whom this project would not be possible. Please not that this A330neo is completely independent from FBW projects.
