The short time frame release from the a320 brings the a318 and a319. Also improved ground markings and more callsigns.

December 10, 2015
Drum roll please…
I remember it like it was an hour ago, oh wait because it was! The a321 which was also a highly anticipated aircraft was released for us IOS users, which really wasn’t as much of a long wait for the a320. I love this plane and I can’t wait to see everyone else flying it in Live.

Thankyou FDS, the mods, beta testers, developers, everyone! This simulator is amazing! It keeps me chasing my dreams of becoming a pilot. Hats off to all of you, I can’t wait to see what happens next year! You can take a break for 5 minutes but start working on the 787, now!!😂✈️🛫❤️❗️‼️

Oooo I can’t wait for what the new year has installed for us. Arghhh I really can’t wait!

It has been a great year indeed. IF is at a stage where, should they release airport updates with buildings, all other flying sims will have to close shop.

2015 included amazing changes imho.
I don’t remember when I bought IF but it was quite a while ago. I started with a few planes and only solo mode available.
It feels like my favorite flight sim is growing up :’)

This has been a hard year of work by the DEVs and the supporting team. That list should show people who ask for it to be ‘free’ how much actual work has gone into it and the value for money that “Live” and in particular “Live +” is!
