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

Shark liver oil used to be the main source of vitamin A for humans. The liver of a basking shark can weigh over 1,800 pounds and contain 600 gallons of oil.

mmmmm interesting !

mmmmm interseting !

Well whale oil used to be a good trade as well. But anyways each day gone by may be a day closer to release and yet at the same time not closer either.

Gents-

The thread is derailing. If you want to keep chatting about Airbus Sharklets and the FSLabs products, that's fine, but if we start going way off-topic I'll have to lock it.

You've been warned :).

I wanna know what the LAF looks like in flight. I've tried doing some googling on but Google just replies with "huh?"

Noted.  Another question.  I'm in the USA and it is almost 2100.  What time is it for you?  Are you up finalizing the sharks for us :)

Will the sharks have any other features other than the different tanks in comparison to the normal Busses? Please bare, if i m not reading 86 pages to gather this information. Thanks

And other features are already previewed here:

But if we kindly all ask Andrew, Lefti or Norman, we may get some new dust-free previews :D 

By the way. I am scared to see this after a full day of rotations :(

Mh.. I m a one screen flyer, so an EFB is at the moment out of interest as i use a real tablet to use Navigraph charts. Here it comes. In a real cockpit the quick view to a tablet goes much easier and convienient, than pan the view to the right spot. During an approach looking to the pedestal or overhead in real does go much faster than in the sim. And sometimes you need to be quick. Does this makes sense? So i stick with my real tablet. Cheers. But this is my personal opinion.
