I have this doubt but the map will also work offline or only with AVSIM

Do you mean Vatsim? No - the ATC sectors are linked to your ATSU settings, and will display either VATSIM or IVAO online stations. You don't need to be connected to either network to see online stations. 

The traffic overlay simply displays traffic around you in P3D. It doesn't matter what injects that traffic (Vatsim/IVAO/AI generators) - this gives you a realtime display of traffic around your aircraft. 

The real time weather/SIGMET overlays require your P3D session to be running in real time (+/- 2hours).

From what I can gather is uses the sim data so it will work offline with AI you have in the sim.

True that! I really hope in one way that the next A3XX will be the A350. Absolutely Love. That. Cockpit. And with the skill and precision that FSLABS makes Addons, that will be godlike. 
But its still all speculation from my point. 

But first: the Sharkies 

As long as you provide them with the technical data they need then you might get an A350. I'm still betting on a A330.

I can’t believe the SL are coming soon, spent most of my life here waiting.

Wasn't the Sharklets announce back in 2017? Thats 4 years ago. You must be the youngest pilot flying for Delta if most of your life was waiting on Sharklets, :lol:

So I guess to enter something into the EFB in the virtual cockpit, you use your real keyboard (how does this not conflict with other functions btw?) and if you use your real tablet, you’ll have the standard mobile pop-up keys, right?

It might be the same 'key input' style like on the MCDU I suppose. Click somewhere to change to EFB input and click again on the same spot when you're done.

Is the sharklets pack a completely different paintkit or just an added texture the aircraft reads? 
 

Also in regards to the efb, on my personal tablet would the session log off after a certain time not in use?

Sorry Florian - we don't allow hosting of official Airbus documentation, so I've removed the file.

Thanks for your understanding.

Apologies Andrew!, May I link to the PDF instead or also rather not?

Sounds reasonable.
I wonder if there will be an option to have a „klickable“ popup keyboard on the virtual tablet as well, like on a real one. I like to enter stuff with as little use of the real keyboard as possible, I never use the keyboard function for the mcdu for example.

It is just like the mcdu so accessible through a browser so I doubt there is a log off point. You do have to be in the aircraft for it to work.

Not needed I assume!, the SL is a seperate addon with a seperate installer, so you can just keep all your liveries!

Well there could be an update to the existing line up which you might need to install first. You generally don’t need to do a fresh install.

Quick, someone put on their Sherlock hat and find the amount of time between the last NDA that was lifted and when the release came out.

Realistically, guys, don't expect a release until a few days after you see us lift the NDA. I wouldn't normally have to repeat this, but I understand some of you are becoming way too anxious for your own good - please, go outside, enjoy some fresh air and come back and post back here how lovely it was :).

 

Let's keep this in mind.

WE NEED MORE SCREENSHOTS OF THE U.S CARRIERS!!!:D

European company and I believe the majority of the tester are from Europe so that’s probably why 95% favor those liveries. There are a few U.S. livery photos a few post up.

With all the beautiful pics days become years now.

Only yesterday you were worrying about it being a longer delay until the NDA would be lifted. Have patience and faith in the process. It'll be worth it when it's released :)

Sorry I joined in late posting screenshots since the NDA was lifted.  I was a bit busy yesterday.  Just fired up my sim and took these.  The first one basically just shows the WTF and the Sharklet side by side and the second screenshot shows one of my favorite liveriesWTF-Shark.thumb.jpeg.78ccc84cdb94c64cf809bfad9733ec5c.jpegG-EZOA.thumb.jpeg.60e9e1392360882e4a41260c7d5fe01a.jpeg
