Features of Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution




Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution is not just a simple update, but a comprehensive overhaul of the original Airbus Series Vol. 1. It adds many new functionalities and improvements that enhance the realism and immersion of flying the Airbus aircraft. Here are some of the main features that you can expect from this add-on:


Weather Radar




One of the most noticeable features of Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution is the highly advanced Weather Radar developed by RealityXP. This weather radar is fully integrated into the Navigation Display (ND) and follows the ND range/mode and brightness settings. It shows you the precipitation intensity and type, as well as turbulence and windshear alerts. The weather radar also allows you to see the route and the moving map on top of the weather display, so you can plan your flight accordingly.


Head-Up Display (HUD)




Another feature that enhances the realism of flying the Airbus aircraft is the Head-Up Display (HUD). This is a device that projects important flight information onto a transparent screen in front of the pilot's eyes, allowing him or her to look through the window while flying the aircraft on the right trajectory. The HUD is especially useful for manually flying low-visibility approaches, as it shows you the glide slope, runway alignment, airspeed, altitude, heading, and more. The HUD can be activated from both the 2D and the 3D cockpit, and can be used in full-screen mode.


Navigation




Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution also improves the navigation system of the Airbus aircraft, especially in terms of SID/STAR management. The database has been updated to include all the waypoints that describe a SID or STAR procedure, regardless of their type. This means that you can follow the exact route that is assigned to you by ATC or that you have planned beforehand. The Flight Management Guidance Computer (FMGC) has also been enhanced to provide more realistic performance calculations, fuel predictions, VNAV modes, and more.


Systems




If you are looking for a detailed simulation of the Airbus systems and logic, Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution will not disappoint you. This add-on replicates the Fly-By-Wire technology and the flight envelope protection of the Airbus aircraft, as well as the various systems that control the engines, hydraulics, electrics, pneumatics, fuel, air conditioning, and more. You can also interact with the Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitor (ECAM), which displays the system status and alerts, and the Multifunction Control and Display Unit (MCDU), which allows you to enter and modify the flight data.


Cockpit




Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution features a high-quality 3D cockpit with interactive features. You can click on almost every switch, knob, button, and lever in the cockpit, and see their effects on the systems and displays. You can also adjust the lighting, the seat position, the window transparency, and more. The cockpit also includes a copilot callout system, which provides you with audible cues and warnings during the flight. You can also use the integrated checklist system, which guides you through the normal and abnormal procedures.


Sounds




Another aspect that contributes to the immersion of flying the Airbus aircraft is the sound environment. Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution features realistic sounds for the engines, flaps, landing gear, brakes, wind, cockpit noises, and more. It also includes custom sound effects for the weather radar, the HUD, the ECAM alerts, and more. The sounds are dynamic and change according to the speed, altitude, and weather conditions.


Liveries




Wilco Airbus Vol. 1 Evolution comes with a variety of liveries for different models and airlines. You can choose from over 40 liveries, including Air France, Lufthansa, British Airways, American Airlines, Emirates, Qatar Airways, and more. You can also download additional liveries from the Wilco Publishing website or from other sources.
