honestly so excited for expansion, i remember andrew saying that with the sharks that the spoliers flip up in turbulence ( i think it was turbulance). if so, has this been modelled, i've not actually seen it on any of my airlines 320s though so isit a option? 

a nose bounce would also be nice when coming to a full stop

Yes - it’s the Load Alleviation Function, which came in on the ELAC L97+, which is fitted to our SL’s. They also feature Aileron Anti-droop on landing.

Nice to know the name of the function.

Would be possible to get an updated roadmap please? I have lost track of all the updates we are expecting including those for the A319/A320. Thank you! :)

I am with you on that. A revised roadmap would be useful.

* this is my opinion* but I reckon sharklet release for V4. Updates and releases for 2020 & then A3*****

Looking forward to the sharklets. They open up many possibilities when choosing an airline.

Of course I have big hopes they also work on the MCDU. 

Absolutely. FMGS/MCDU needs to be worked on to reflect a recent software standard, preferrably one that came with recent ceo sharklets off the production line.

Also, looking forward to the sharklets for the somewhat increased range.

Yes, we know that and it's cool. That alone doesn't tell a lot about how complete the software will be, unfortunately. Because the current software version is not complete either.

The modeling doesn't seem to be the AS> If in fact that is FSL, I hope they fix the sharklet lighting

It's FSL, with Photoshop ;) You can clearly see that the colors are not even matching, nor is the lighting. That sharklet was put in there via photo manipulation. A very good one though. But the rough edge around the junction and the color mismatch gives it away.

Just spotted a certain someone testing the sharks on vatsim... (G-EUYS is a sharked airframe) Seems to be going well then ;)

You see these pop up months before release. When the a321 got released last year i think we saw the a321 flying at the beginning of that year even.

Correct. I'd not be happy to see the S8 somewhere stated in a maintenance page of the MCDU, but of course would want to see the complete (as it can be within the constraints of P3D) functionality of S8 actually implemented and working.

Yeah but i dont think p3d is very much constraining when it comes to software

Is the S8 actually the latest software version for the RL airbuses or are there even newer ones?

@Andrew Wilson

Will we see things like soft go-around mode and the new ISIS ?

Little detail as well but the database name should be in big characters, I guess it comes with the later softwares :D
Btw, you could add a "database_name=" option in the reg.cfg to replace the first three characters of the database name for those who fly multiple airlines (which IRL all have different first 3 chars). I personally rename the database and it does the trick anyway but just saying ;)

@David Norfolk Well for me it might be a Eurowings A320 rotation from Cologne or Salzburg. A Condor A321 flight to Kos/Skiathos or something like that. Or even a Sunclass longhaul to the canary islands from Gothenburg! They are all my favourite sceneries in the sim currently. What about you?
