Aerosoft – Glider Simulator (World of Aircraft)

We hadden er al eerder aandacht aan besteedt, Een nieuw soort flightsimulator, gericht op Zweefvliegen. En ook een software pakket als stand-alone. Dus niet via MSFS/Prepar3D of het oude FSX, mogelijk zal dit dan ook beter draaien op een normale PC. Met hierboven de Trailer. Jammer genoeg laten ze het zweven op thermiek nog niet zien. Echter gezien de omschrijving is hier al veel aandacht aan besteedt. En wordt ook uitgebracht in het Nederlands, wel zo lekker. En dit alles speelt zich af in de omgeving van het vliegveld: “Herrenteich Flugplatz”. Duitsland. incl. 5 vliegtuigen, 3 zwevers (1 voorzien van zelfstart) en 2 slepers.

Binnenkort, rond 26 mei 2021, verkrijgbaar via uw account van simMarket. Prijs zal zo rond de €30,- zijn.


  • Animated road traffic, ships
  • Ray-marched clouds
  • Animated windsocks
  • Birds in thermals
  • Cloud shadows
  • Advanced effects model, including dust


    Per-element based flight model: each surface split into many sections, aerodynamic forces computed for each section individually, then integrated. 360×360 deg flow provides for natural and seamless stalls, spins, tailslide, hammerhead turn and so on

  • Blade element model (BEM) for variable pitch props provides for very precise computation of both linear (thrust) and rotational (asymmetric propwash) components
  • Mass-flow based model for internal combustion engine, correct computation of manifold pressure
  • Correct coupling of the prop to the engine (torque developed equalized by torque consumed by the prop)
  • Full computation of windmilling mode, including backward flow conditions
  • Gyroscope effect, p-factor effect computation


  • Many sound effects normally not seen in simulators, for example the stick hitting its stops
  • Flow sounds depend on angle of attack, not only airspeed
  • Far distance prop sounds


  • Thermals model based on real life flight test data
  • Thermals emerge, dissipate with time, get blown away with the wind
  • Velocity gradient across the upstream of thermals (so you can feel at which side of your aircraft the lift is highest


WoA – Glider Edition is located at Herrenteich airport, a small airfield on the borders of the Rhine river, close to Speyer (and Speyer airport is included). A 50 by 50-kilometer area is modeled in high detail with tens of thousands of trees, houses,s and commercial buildings. A 30-centimeter ground image provides a perfect backdrop for the area.


When you are done with the training missions, you can connect to your friends and fly together. Use the Wilga to tow your friends to altitude or see who can perform the most precise landing. You could even try aerobatics as a team. The sky is the limit. This time for real. See you at the field!
