Hello there, if you cant tell by the name I’m currently employed as a pilot working for a domestic airline in the US. and am type rated on the A320 among three other commercial airliners.
I have spent the vast majority of MSFS2020 time flying the A320 and 747-8 so far. The flight characteristics as far as the physics engine are concerned seem OK. Some of the current issues I am aware of right now is incorrect angle of attack (AOA) for a given airspeed. This is why some of you may notice excessive nose up angles at cruise even near maximum mach numbers and during approach. The fuel flow numbers are also significantly off (I verified this in my performance manuals). This engine N1 settings in cruise are also wrong by a good margin.
The biggest issues I have is actually handling the aircraft. The plane is far more difficult to handle In flight sim then in the real world. So those of you that have managed a nice soft touchdown on the centerline and in the touch-down zone give yourself a pat on the back, because its harder than in the real thing.
The other obvious controllability issues include the autopilot non-sense many users are reporting, at least they seem to be aware of this.
IF (and that is capitalized for a reason) the devs take some of this feedback and act on it then I think we will have a pretty realistic sim in the coming months.
If I had to rate its state right now it would be a C-
Hope that helps. Just so us all a favor and don’t forget to submit those bug reports
