BBS Status Update....

Airbus X-Treme Prologue v0.85.2 is available now.

BBS Website & SimMarket Live now .. other vendors should be live within 2 hours.

This update adds full Prepar3D v3 compatibility thanks to a very speedy FSUIPC update from Pete Dowson.

If you DON'T use P3D v3 you DO NOT need to re download it, save your bandwidth for the forthcoming WideBody .85 ;-)

We have also generously reduced the price for the Airbus X-Treme Prologue from €45.00 to €39.99
and to make these fantastic aircraft available to all budgets we will soon be launching 2 seperate smaller installer packages for the even lower price of €24.99 as follows:-

BBS Airbus Prologue ( A318 & A319 Pack )
BBS Airbus Prologue ( A320 & A321 Pack )

Exclusively available to purchase from

Dont worry ... we haven't forgotten the Big buses either, BBS WideBody X-Treme (A330 & A340) Prologue is being sent out to our amazing beta team tomorrow so we hope to get it out to our customers real soon.

To save confusion ( i know there has been a lot of posts recently ) I have included a full change log covering the past week of revisions at the end of this post.

Yes its been a very busy week for us at BBS.

Happy Flying
