Flight Sim Labs Reveals New Icing Features for A319-X



IMG 153

A few days ago, Flight Sim Labs teased what would be a “super cool” new feature for their upcoming A319 product. Today, they have announced on their forum what this tease was all about. One of the biggest safety concerns for any pilot is icing. Icing that forms on the fuselage, wings or control surfaces of the aircraft can cause detrimental effects if not properly treated. Whilst other aircraft have attempt to simulate icing within the sim, FSLabs are announcing  their custom-built “ground-breaking” new icing model.

The new icing model, which will be made for the A319 at first, will feature a wealth of new features not yet seen in a flight simulator. The team say that ice, frost and contamination will build up dynamically on the airframe based on numerous in-sim atmospheric conditions. This will include temperature, humidity, sun elevation and other factors including fuel and realistic ‘cold soak’ effects. Not only will it build up, but then depending on the conditions, the ice and snow will melt dynamically too. This data has been taken from thermal models and data from many test flights. So during walk-arounds, you will need to check the wings, tail, fuselage, engine nacelles and spinners to ensure they’re free from ice. Furthermore, in the FSLabs A319-X you’ll be able to see ice building up dynamically on the flight deck ice probe. Alternatively the electronic ice detectors that are fitted to some A319s, which display an ECAM alert when ice is detected, can be optionally enabled via the MCDU.
