Winglets

Posted by etc on 12 July 2016 - 12:19 AM

i cannot instal winglets to planes that i had already bought before i create the IFE


Well, If you bought or leased an airplane, there's an option to add a winglets on some airplanes. If you choose NO to that and decided to add it later, there will be problems. Well, at least one problem, you cannot add a winglets after you leased or bought a plane. Like IRL, for example, a customer bought a plane without winglets, after 3 days, it arrives. After knowing that the customer would like to add a winglet AFTER you bought it, it's request will be denied. What would you thing to do? Wielding? Replace the wings? Impossible! Just buy it again.



That's not right.. winglets should install whenever the aircraft is able to. I don't know any info about the aircraft in question though. IFE has no effect on it.



Dear etc, am sorry to inform you that in real life it is impossible to install winglets once an airplane has been finished and left the assembly line. The reason why is because you would have to take apart the whole wings sections to properly install the winglets which is practically destroying the airplane into pieces to make it again. I suppose AE gaming is trying to take as many aspects as possible from real life and include them to the game to make it more realistic, i suppose that's the reason why ingame you cant add winglets after a plane has been assembled only when you are ordering a new one, since it can be added to the plane while this one is being made.



Just chipping in to say that winglets can be installed after the airframe has been manufactured. http://www.aviationp...list_prices.php

A320s, 733s, 757s, and 763Ws can be retrofitted with winglets.

Winglets can be added to a a/c later in life. Because it is a expensive investment most airlines  just consider it for A\C with plenty of years to use. On older planes does t pay off.

It is a shame there is no option to install on one click on the entire fleet/model.
