As excited as I am to get the Sharklets, for me the most impressive upcoming feature is the EFB. Many other developers have implemented EFB’s into their products over the years and I’ve always wondered why they haven’t made it possible for us to use them on our physical tablets. This alone is my favorite part of the expansion and just reenforces my opinion that while the wait is always painful it is typically worth it. All the other neat features of the EFB are just icing on the cake and demonstrate just how forward thinking FSL can be. 
 

That said, I am a little bummed out that the 319 won’t be getting SL as it is my favorite variant to fly. In the Airline2Sim videos the 319 is the sports car of the lineup and I certainly agree. All in all, very much looking forward to the expansion and playing with all the new features. Looks to be a lot there to keep a systems nerd like me quite content for a while. Bravo FSL team!

I’ve watched it 3 times. I like the video. They could have also used the sounds track from Jaws. It would have been perfect for a Sharklets release.


I was scrolling through sound tracks late one night and this one came on that sounded very Jaws like at the beginning. The more I listened to it - the more I liked it! A little different and was fun to work with.

That’s what I was saying, it almost had that Jaws theme feeling at the beginning. Great video. Watched it 3 more times today :)

I want to have a time machine to be able to speed up the launch, I can't resist anymore, I'm going crazy, the time is short but endless, the wait makes me watch the videos of BB, FTW and the trailer as adult videos, they are simply addictive for God's sake launch this soon

Goodmorning everyone. I would like to have your opinion on a news that circulates on the web, but not confirmed by the Fslabs team. Is it true that the sharklet release is scheduled for June 6 and not before?

First of all, they won't announce release dates afaik - we'll get an announcement regarding the release

Secondly, don't believe everything that's being said on the 'net..

I'd suggest that we forget about the release and do sth else like flying around online or reading a book. Life is still good without Sharks, all in all: Stop torturing ourselves and cheers dude.

What kind of external device you will need to run EFB? Phone is ok, or do I finally need an iPad?)

On a phone it will look pretty cramped I assume. It runs in a browser so it can be any tablet of the last few years I assume.

He might be talking about different sat dome types, of which there will only be one with sharklets (the one we already have).

Correct. I guess that if the type will be the ones used by Lufthansa, my next question will be whether or not others will be added in the future? eg: Jetblue, Delta, American etc...

It was mentioned on stream, **I think** Lefteris said that they only plan for the current one for now.

 My ride yesterday. It ain’t shark lets but i sure do like those winglets. And it’s a A3xx carrying a lot more fuel ;) and frame rates are amazing too! Only thing I have to admit is that FSLabs efb looks cooler than the one we use :D

In the SHARKLETS we will have the option to choose the LED lights and the ones that are not LED on the outside (landing, taxi etc.) since in real life planes with SL have non-LED light

Why is that everytime FSLabs releases an big update they set the bar higher for their competitors. I know it is very much rhetorical in nature. Also we need to start another hype thread for their next unnannounced project.

Yeah don't look at me, I refuse to do a concorde one, a no comment neo one, a A3xx-xx one. Plus I feel like Lefteris would hunt me down :ph34r:

I understood it only need “something” with a browser so it means I can use it on the touch laptop I use as an EFB ?

My Best regards

Some airlines use for instance a surface computer as their EFB. so a convertable laptop with touchscreen will work equally well.
