Good procedures/failures simulator during covid19

Hi,

I am looking for a good simulator (pc/mac) of the a32f to train failures and procedures. Flying is not the main goal. Preferably also multiple failures. Mel items etc... should be possible.
As close as possible to real simulator/airctaft.

thanks

FSLabs. Expensive but you get what you pay for.

Are you a32f pilot in real world? Is the list of failures acceptable? I only want to do some failure management with ecam/eqrh management included. I donít mind the cost if it is worth the buck. I do not intend to fly so I will not buy a sidestick or TLíers.
I also want to replay recurrent scenarioís to put the tips to the test immediately. I barely fly these days and I think this will help me along with reading the Fcom/fctm.
What fslabs a32f would you recommend? And what would be the total price?

Here is one that started as a ground instruction tool for mechanics and got implemented in the x-plane flight simulator game.

I fly the 737, but I've got friends that fly the A320 and told me very good things about it and use it to prepare. It's a study level addon, just like PMDG is for me.

But I think you will need at least a joystick. You can get one for 30 euro.

Read ECAM (ipadecam.co.uk)

Or you can just use this if it's acceptable for you.

I'd try to get the actual Airbus training materials and access if you are serious and not just "interested" if there is any chance. It's way too complex. A non-Airbus rated friend of mine tried to prepare some A320 sim ride with "study level games" and failed.

Preparing for a sim assessment on a desktop simulator has never been a good strategy. This is why there are simulator centers. I passed an A320 assessment like this. Then Covid arrived...

I agree. It was some short notice call and chance that had to be taken.

You can very effectively prepare for sim checks using the FSLabs airbus.

Don't settle for the Toliss one the it isn't as in-depth.

Better rent some actual full flight simulator for familiarization before if you need to be ready for some sim assessment.
