Sharklet Hype

Recommended Posts

Shannon Misquitta

Sharklets or no Sharklets the BUS feels the same , except for a few Phases of flight ,Having flown the CEO AND NEO (standard  with sharks ) handling wise   not much difference  between the two,the only place you notice is during decent ,approach and flare rest the characteristics are the same ,basically the sharks reduce drag caused by standalone wing tips by almost eliminating   the vortices which cause Induced drag , on decent u should try and avoid a steep decent profile compared to a non shark as the drag is reduced ,also on approach depending on your wind speed and direction configuration is important as sharklet aircraft bleed less airspeed its better to maintain CONF2 before capturing Glide or ur gonna get busy with speed brakes or getting the gear down early to get more drag cause those sharks make the BUS feel like skating on Ice ,and lastly handling wise expect more float during flare unlike a non Shark u gonna float more so power cut  and flare is gets a bit tricky initially  during a tail or head wind .Rest no change but it does Add sex appeal to the bus

...and keep checking Flightradar24 cause we are 5hrs too early and the plane is not even departed to us yet.

And WHO knows what plane the FSL-OPS dispatches for our flight <_<

On the side note my Airbus side stick just arrived, did a full fight and everything went perfectly!

Highly recommend it.

This Thred really does need it's own website and dedicated staff to run it!, it has more inputs than Ryanair's complaint department email address B)

+1. Did a flight yesterday from ENGM to ENAL. What a joy. The stick adds so much to an already immersive experience. Only thing missing now is the throttle quadrant, it's add-ons, MSFS with the FSL busses and it will be perfection (well actually just an FSL A330 shy of perfection :D).

Well the backup speed scale is already an option currently which doesn’t have a button but it wouldn’t surprise me if it was an option.

So while reading the manuals the A320 and I assume A321 comes with the tail strike caution arrows on the PFD while in the landing phase.

Does the current version have this and if not will it be included in the future?

What would be really interesting is Inflight entertainment, be cool to watch Netflix on the EFB, on boring night flights over the Europe :rolleyes:

Can't wait for Sharklets, would not be surprised if they release it late August or early fall, just a guess.

I need that for my long range rides down to Canarias or Tel Aviv or even Cairo!

Or what about Iceland :blink:

Renew the lease, leasing rates should be quite low these days due to COVID-19! :ph34r:
