Native Airbus A330-900neo for MSFS
The A330-900neo is a wide-body jet airliner manufactured by Airbus.
It is an evolution of the popular A330-300 with new improved wings and modern high bypass engines (Rolls-Royce Trent 7000) for better fuel efficiency.
The first A330-900neo entered service on December 15 2018 with launch partner airline TAP Portugal, it can carry up to 287 passenger with a range of 13300 km.
This project was originally started by Philippe Marion before being completely re-worked from the ground up by Headwind, to make it fully compatible for MSFS. This is not a study level aircraft, however it allows to make complete flights.

- 4K PBR textures
- Native wingflex and engine torque (first freeware aircraft with this feature)
- Custom flight model
- MSFS native effects and materials
- Semi-customised cockpit
- based on FBW A32NX system
- Please remember to delete your previous headwind-a330neo from your community before installing an update. Don't override.
- Simply drag and drop the headwind-a330neo folder into your community.
- Remember to calibrate the trottle from the tablet (EFB).
- Keep in mind that the first loading can be a bit slow.
- You don't need any FBW A32NX installed : This A330-900neo is standalone.
- Chokes and plots are visible when Beacon switch is OFF, engines is OFF and parking break switch is ON
- Cockpit is based on the default A320 cockpit but semi-customised. This is not perfect but a few changes make it a bit different from an A320 cockpit.
- This is a beta and free version, please be cool.
This aircraft systems are forked from the great FBW A32NX project, version 0.7.4. This means that the systems are more advanced than on the default Asobo A320. A cold and dark start requires some knowledge. If you don't know how to start an Airbus, I invite you to follow this tutorial.
If you are not familiar with the FBW A32N project, I invite you to consult the FBW official website and the documentation here.
A huge thank you to the FBW team without whom this project would not be possible. Please not that this A330neo is completely independent from FBW projects.

Its a very good Plane for freeware but when i put throttle on idle it goes 98% how to fix?
KLAX to EGLL
Started the flight around yesterday evening using a flightplan imported from Simbrief.
Landed this morning after a flight time of 08:15 and block time of 08:39. I only sped up the last bit.
TL;DR This runs great and stable for your long range flight.
Just wanna say that i downloaded the aircraft from your installer,after i've seen Headwind comment about it,in another user post
THE AIRCRAFT IS PERFECT ! And better than what it is here.
I installed the development version
I dunno why people keep complaining in here
I never knew about your installer until i saw this comment in here
Very good freeware, had a bug with the engine blades and the NW/S was kinda strange, but except that it's very promising add-on !
lot of user have the same issue( the nose wheel steering do not work at all
The plane doesn't show up in the plane selection even though i dropped it in the community folder

mostly because of your liveries, change a default livery you may find it works.
Why is there no approach procedure and departure procedure for my aircraft, and the navigation data is 2303 of the airport in ENGM
DALO233 6 day(s) ago
One more note: All airports do not display approach procedures and departure procedures
Was a good aircraft but the AP is so bugged that the plane is not able to fly
LuxasNav 1 day(s) ago
Oh and forgot another thing: just randomly in cruise the engines shut down. bad work of the devs tbh
HeadwindSim 1 day(s) ago
Because of the bad work of our devs i suggest you to delete the mod 😉
LuxasNav 15 hour(s) ago
Already done. By far the least reliable aircraft since the early stages of the asobo 320. No hate but very frustrated as no flight with your aircraft goes to plan whereas the FENIX and PMDG delivered every single time with only a few minor issues
why if you reach 30,000ft the auto pilot keeps bugging my plane pitch is going up and down i cant even fly it properly please help me fix this please

Same issue here
This has been my favourite aircraft in MS2020 so far. I dont know what has happened to it now. Every time i start on the runway all the cauges are black. I havent added any new addons recently, so that shouldnt effect the experience. I recently downloaded the newest version of this A330 and it worked fine for a coulple of flights until this blackout problem occured. After that i tried to switch back to the older version but the problem remains. Anyone got any clue what causes this problem? And maybe a solution? Thanks!

Try to install it through our installer: https://headwindsim.net/installer.html
Anyone else having trouble with engine failure 30 to 60 minutes into a flight? ,I'm stumped as its been pretty flawless upto now.
LuxasNav 9 day(s) ago
