Hello guys, I appreciate all of the hype going on already and I am super excited to see all the anticipation reaching amazing levels! In fact, I wanted to share that, while we don't expect t

Hi all – As Lefteris commented on, one of my favourite areas of the updated models, besides the PBR, is the cabin windows. Each window has now been remodelled in detail - and we've also modelled

I've elected to stay away from this until now as it gives people an opportunity to joke around, vent their frustrations on a "perceived delay" of our release (even though I've explained the reasons be

It's gonna be fun flying the Sharklets this winter! Expecting some good climb performance especially with those new wings.

Sharklets are nice and all, but I hope there is also Lateral Offsets in the update.

It could be a feature already. Ok. The sharks are having more range, so an atlantic route is more obvious. Btw. You got the news, that an A321 LR (Air Astana) flies Almaty to Frankfurt. So far i know of the longest A320 family nonstop flight so far. I know its a NEO version, but I thought its worth to mention it. Cheers guys.

As many airlines use the "No Contact period" for comms to the flightdeck a lot of air;lines opt for the chime at gear down which marks the start on approach and gear up on departure which marks the end of that period.

Depending on where you are in the aircraft you cannot tell from sound if the gear is fully up or going down so a chime is used to indicate it to the entire crew that the gear is up after take off or going down for landing.

Its also an attention getting for landing ie you should be seated. Many airlines allow crew to be on their feet while the seatbelt sign is on and if the tech crew forget to instruct the cabin crew to be seated for landing its an extra warning that landing is imminent.

Dear Darren, thx for this explanation.

As an explanation the no contact period where crew are not permitted under any circumstances to try to contact the flightdeck starts at the start of the take off roll and finishes at gear up and on landing is from the gear extension to turning off the runway. You also have as a visual aid the emergency exit row lights illuminate as well with the gear down for landing and turn off when the gear is up as well.

The A319 is in the final stage of testing so hopefully not too long now and then finally we can have real hype about the Sharklets!

I'm hopeful that FSL will bring the buses to MSFS but like all good things in life they will take time, especially for a replica-style simulation that FSL goes for.

Are you flying Jetstar? Stupid question. Is the song drunk on a plane the real jetstar boarding music or is it kind of easteregg joke from FSL?

Hi guys, i m pretty sure it has been answered already, but please bare with me not going through 77 pages of this thread:P

Lefteris said on april 16, that the SL will be of the 320 and 321 with both engine versions as one package. So do i need to own the actual 321 to buy this package then? Or will be the 320 still be kind of core version for all. 

Thanks for the answers. 

 

Cheers

If you only have the A320-X then after purchase you will have the regular Wing Tip Fence (WTF) and Sharklet (SL) variants of the A320-X.  

You only get the A321-X SL if you already have the WTF variant.  So yes, you need to "own the actual 321" too.

The A320 and A321 SL is said to come as one package, but if we only have the A320 base package then we'll only get the A320 SL. Would the SL price be the same or less then considering it's only for the A320? Hoping for flexibility in the pricing

The SL package is a single product with a single price.

So when the Sharklets is released do we scrap some of the older wingfence A320s to make more of the Sharklets or does FSL have our back?

Can FSL supply us at least 130+ Sharklet A321s on the release date? Or do we have to sell some of our older A321/A320s to makeup?

What you do is, once you get the sharklets, you fly the wingfences to the scrapyard & watch them get cut up to tiny pieces. Rumour has it that FSL is making a airplane graveyard DLC

Perfect because the lavatory from one of our A320s fell out in flight! So that one is going to the yard. It was old, delivered to us in 1989.

I do hope the new Sharklets will have Wifi installed on them, a 50 inch HDTV would be nice too.

Beta test? Or the signature? Think about the answer otherwise I will inform Lefti that he needs to look for a new tester :P:D

What is more frustrating than seeing this thread expand is not being able to fly the fslabs for a prolonged period and not being able to enjoy the sharklets on release.
