You can be sure the whole team are working flat out to get things into your hands - and without my setting the prices.  There will always be things that didn't appear no matter how exhaustive our testing is however we hope these will be to a minimum.

But generell speaking the shorter promotional period is still a thing or?

Ah totally, i'm sure the team are going for it now that the NDA has been lifted.  I imagine there will be very little if anything to pick at.  I'm hoping for a release this weekend but it'll be out when it is out!

Best offer yet!  We need the world to open up again to allow these shows to return.

Like I said, the offer is on the table... Would you like Ketchup with that? I'm sure the cost is well within my budget. Joking aside, it would be great to see the FSLABS stand and all of you again next time around.;)

Jokes aside what you guys are doing to get this into our sim's is amazing and it will be worth the wait

This was the incredible moment, when you want to flare but somehow windows decide to "reconnect" all USB devices...

While I'm so excited for the release, I am sure it'll be worth the wait - I prefer a polished release over a rushed one.

I think it's safe to say that "rushed" doesn't really apply at this point.  I prefer to think of it as: "excessively thorough."  B)

Anyone know if we get offsets enabled with this latest release? Also fixing the ACTs?
Step altitude fixes? Entering time points?

The overlay depicts precipitation radar captured via satelite - so it shows precipitation regardless of altitude.

Can it display Vatsim weather ?

In real life every airframe, despite being planned identical, differ.  These even change RL over time.  You will have to work out the change yourself.

i know, but the beta tester has already figured it out a factor I think with all their flights. I just know that the Sl will decrease fuel consumption around 5-6%

In real life the NEO sees a reasonable change.  You wont notice quite as much with CEO.

Neo is around 30%, but with the Sl, we should see a difference for flights above 1hr i guess, because with 5% reduction, if a flight with the CEO WTF consume 2900kg of fuel, with the SL it should only consume 2750kg (-150kg)

That's good to know at least for me. I have some ceo profiles for pfpx that are dead spot on for all the variants and I was wondering where I could find some SL ones or if I can still use the ceo profiles I have.

Alright everyone I do have a question about the liveries for the new release of the sharklet aircraft. Will any of the liveries include Volaris, Interjet, or VivaAerobus? I've been really hoping for one of these hispanic airlines to be released so I can fly through Mexico? Either way, I'm just happy the sharklets are going to get released soon!

Woohoo! Just got the call for landing currency in the sim. Finally, the dark times are rolling away.

All I need is an international ground class and I’m packing my bags!
