Hm.... would be nice but I‘m sceptic. 
We didn‘t get a default one neither for the 320 nor for the 319...

Although one of the larger Airbus carrier in Europe, it’s aparently one of the hardest repaints to do from what I‘ve heard from several good repainters...

Once we get them basically into the FSL cockpit, next would be getting Lido charts with Navigraph pls! :wub:
Why? Because they're just better than Jeppesen :D 

PS: CandyCrush is still Prio1 for the EFB imo ;D

Will be the EFB only available with the sharklet extension (even for the A319)? Looking forward to have that in the cockpit:rolleyes:

Maybe its easier, to ask EW to change their livery in order to get it as day one livery. And yes i asked the same, some days ago. I don't know what, but anything from these planes is difficult to paint.

I am excited to see what the Ocean livery will look like.
Probably the yellow "sun" logo like the older Lufthansa livery but more white and a huge OCEAN at the front.

Eurowings is a pain but our master-painters will get it done sooner or later! Maybe @Vasilis get it done once SL are finished :D

So, other than the obvious changes in the external model and a couple of percent off in fuel consumption....

What does the sharklet version bring on top of what's already available now. That is, what do we know that FSlabs is going to add - systemwise?

Newer flight computers, new flight model (which isn't just "a few percent off fuel consumption" - it includes new aerodynamics and flight characteristics unique to the sharklet), updated fuel systems, satdom integration (with relevant aerodynamic and CG shift), EFB, full LED lighting system...

Man I’m hoping it comes either next month or Xmas.

we need the extra winter performance

Christmas sounds more achievable to me.

I would rather wait and have the plane released without bugs from BETA.

Why is no one discussing the price tag or give prepositions...

:P

My guess is around 70€

Since it‘s not a standalone product, I think it is lower. I‘m wild guessing something around 39,99 Euros. :)

When we compare it to the A319 & A321 prices, in my opinion probably the extension will be based on a lower price. But of course we all know how much work and effort the team is showing into the extension. (Performance, LED Lights, EFB), I guess it could be between 25-35 Euros:ph34r: Looking forward to see more previews:rolleyes:

The first flight of an Airbus A320 with Sharklets fitted lifted up to the skies on November, 30th 2011!

Strange to see them equipped on an old Airbus with old engine pylons and belly fairings...

I don't know exactly which features will be on the EFB but it could be nice to have a performance tool like this with runway details. Of course it's not easy to build something like that but at least having our charts there it will be amazingB)

Yeah I saw those previews but thanks Stu. I guess because of the development process there wasn't any details about the features, therefore I shared this photo above maybe we can get new details from the development team:rolleyes:
