Common Questions


Q: Where is the plane in-sim?

The A32NX is a separate aircraft from the default A320. You need to select this aircraft in the 'aircraft selection' menu before loading the flight. Select the FlyByWire Simulations A320neo (LEAP) in the aircraft selector instead of the Asobo one.

Q: Can I download the aircraft in the current state?

Yes, see Downloads.

Q: How do I install this aircraft?

Visit our Installation Guide.

Q: What liveries are available?

Liveries for the default A320neo are incompatible with the A32NX. We recommend downloading compatible liveries from

Q: Do we have a simBrief profile for the A32NX?

Yes, there is one available for all versions of our aircraft. You can find how to use it here.

Q: When will it be released?

The project is an ongoing rolling release. See Downloads.

Q: When is the next update?

We don't know when the next update will be, however you can keep track of development via commit logs and Stable release logs here.

Q: How do I join the team?

Head over to A32NX Development Overview and join our Discord to get started.

Q: Is it payware?

No, it is a completely free and open-source aircraft.

Q: How do we report bugs?

Report bugs to us in the Discord server, under the #a32nx-support channel, or by creating a GitHub issue.

Just make sure to search for existing issues first before creating a new one.

Q: Why is my version not the same as what I see others using?

We have two versions: Stable and Development.


The Stable version is a 'snapshot' of the development which we regard as stable with the current version of the simulator. See Downloads.


The Development build is updated daily and is a constant work in progress and although we test each update thoroughly, minor issues may occur from time to time. See Downloads.


Q: I cannot hear the Flaps or PTU in the cockpit anymore?

This change was made due to feedback from IRL A320 pilots who identified the sounds could not be heard from the cockpit IRL as they currently are in the simulator.

The PTU has a toggleable switch on the EFB (flyPad) settings that allows you to hear it in the cockpit when it is running.

Q: Which lights should I turn on during taxi/takeoff/flight?

There are many fantastic tutorials online which demonstrate the proper use of lighting on the A320neo, take a look at this video from 320 Sim Pilot:

Q: Is the Hold function implemented yet?

Yes - the Hold function is available in the MCDU.

Q: Why is the overall interior lighting different? (Blue light effect on pedestal and displays)

Based on IRL A320 pilot feedback, the blue light effect can only be seen from images. Also, the pedestal should be dark at night to improve pilots' vision at night.

Q: Why does light bleed into the cockpit? Can this be fixed?

Unfortunately, no - This is a more profound issue which will require work from the Asobo team.

Q: The new sounds are different from the default ones, why?

The default sounds were shared sounds from other default aircrafts. The new sounds are accurate and very well-developed based on the A320 and A320neo pilot feedback.
