Airbus A310-300

They must be doing something today with the A310 as I’ve flying it (trying to) this week but tonight I’ve had three CTDs in a row and never even got up.

Apparently the change log for the latest update will not be released until it goes live on Steam and Xbox later this week. So it’s a bit weird having an update without knowing what has been updated. I did notice however altitude callouts starting from 1000’ - which I think is a new feature. And performance is definitely not worse than .15 - not sure if it’s better yet as I haven’t done any fps comparisons.

Hang on - looks like the release notes are available: Beta Update Release Notes (Nov. 22, 2022) - Sim Update 11 Beta / Beta News and Updates - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

The new beta patch ( is available for all platforms now. The release notes are here:

It has been released: Beta Update Release Notes (Nov. 22, 2022)

Thanks! I just discovered this as you posted :slight_smile: Wow, lots of changes here!

Continuing the discussion from Beta Update Release Notes (Nov. 22, 2022):

For me not fixed. Doesn’t now get stuck on ‘Pending’ but flashes pending and then back to SIMBRIEF but without importing a plan. The inibuild export tool works ok with my simbrief id, as does simbrief file downloader, so lots of workarounds but curious to see if it’s fixed for others now.

EDIT: Placed in the beta feedback here - A310 Simbrief MCU Import Not Fixed

Hello @notsofearless,

Please post any feedback about the beta build to the beta forums so we can properly track and log issues.

My bad, please move it.

You would have to create a new topic here: #sim-update-11-beta:general-discussion-su10.

Do you have a long or weird simbrief user name? Have you tried the simbrief.ini way of setting up your username in the A310? If not, give it a try. My ID is way longer than it needs to be (17 chars! - :scream: What was I thinking?) so I have to use the ‘.ini’ file method to use it, which works.

maybe it was already asked…when will normal users (so not beta users) get the updated A310-300 in game? as its also not possible to update via inibuilds directly (i guess)

I’m guessing when they get on top of majority of the minor bugs. It makes no sense having multiple sim updates. I guess there is perhaps a stake in the ground moment (hopefully soon) when it gets released. I’m not on the beta, but have improved performance just by tweaking graphics settings in SU11 alone. You won’t be getting the A310 anywhere other than from in game updates, in reality via sim updates (as that is where all in game default aircraft updates come from). Every FS user will need to get the sim update even if not using the A310, so best to get it right before having to do multiple SU patches/hotfixes. Just IMO.

Good morning All,

Glad to see the issues you’ve been having with landings are getting better.
The thing to remember is that she’s not quite as automated as the later Airbus fleet but once you have it nailed down, you’ll be smooth sailing - flying - from here on in.

The latest version 1.1.6 base version has many updates and has just been released on the Beta program:

But is there any prediction regarding the public release date?

I can’t comment on that, that’s not in our hands at iniBuilds.

The usual process is that once all testing and issues in the Beta are done it gets pushed out cross-platform.

Just think when it does come out, you’ll have all these new goodies and fixes to play with :slight_smile:


I’m not the most “up with the play” nor am I tecno minded… certainly not the doof doof kind either…:rofl::rofl::rofl:

But how do I access this ‘beta’ A310???

First of all, thank you :laughing: !! I actually meant, based on what you’ve seen so far, how long does it usually take for a beta to be released? A week, a month? I’ve been using the A310 on XPlane for a long time… obviously my hands are sweaty :star_struck:!!

mah, I am many confused, during this days I Flighted with B737 PMDg, A320 FBW, and md80 Leonardo, but the AP didn’t disconnect and I had real weather.

Still having ATC audio drop mid flight. Can’t recover it. On a 2hr fight this morning from LEMD to LSZH and everything just goes quiet mid flight, and if you don’t realise it you lose the IFR flight following.
I honestly don’t know if this is A310 specific or SU11 specific. As I have only flown the A310 since SU11 came out!
I really need to go jump back into the 737 to test this ATC drop out. It seems intermittent, as I had a 2hr flight last night with no ATC audio drop.
It’s very frustrating whatever it is. (I’m not using the beta).

One ? as I haven’t found a method of doing it but can you do a step through review of the route on the screen at all? (Useful for analysing the STAR/approach). You can do this on the 737 and the A320NX, but I guess it’s not possible on the A310 being older? Just wondering if I’m missing something.
