We’re pleased to inform you on behalf of ToLiss that the Airbus A319 has been updated to version 1.3.3. There’s a lot done and many new features have been added, but ToLiss also fixed a couple of bugs. As we all know, and in case you didn’t then you know it now, the ToLiss Airbus A319 is an official approved Airbus X-Plane model. Therefore ToLiss may use the word “Airbus” leading the A319.
Anyway, we wrote already a while ago a comprehensive review of this baby. In case you’re interested in it, the you must check out this in-depth review. But I thin k it’s worth to highlight what new features are implemented and which bugs are fixed. According to ToLiss the change log list looks as follows:
- Improved APU GEN representation on the APU SD page.
- Added background lighting to displays, FCU digits, RMP frequencies, clock, etc.
- Reworked the ECAM flap indication to match latest standard
- Reworked ECAM F/CTL + HYD page to match latest standard
- Added Delta ISA temperature information to SD permanent data; TAT and SAT on SD now depend on data source availability.
- Added Datarefs to set the door modes: AirbusFBW/PaxDoorModeArray and AirbusFBW/CargoDoorModeArray – 0: Closed, 1: Auto, 2: Open
- FMGS initialization is now possible in flight using DIRTO and subsequently NEW DEST.

- When entering a RWY only approach, the FMGS adds a CF point 5NM before the runway as it should.
- Fixed the MCDU key interaction delay to be a constant 300ms.
- Fixed a bug with the use of Place/Bearing/Distance type points on the lateral revision page.
- Yaw trim reset now goes all the way to zero, even if you release the push button.
