Is all this for the A320 only cockpit or for all planes?
Initially, it is only for the A320. But it should be implemented on the A318, A319 and A321 (is this true, Bjoern?).

No, it hasn't. SKBG is ready but needs some more testing, and I'm working on SKBQ. I need to pretty much code again everything for SKBO as there will be new RNAV SID, STAR and approaches starting on 14th September.

The takeoff checklist says that the spoilers need to be armed, but this isn't possible since the key event is blocked. The spoilers automatically arm at 80 kts in the FD-FMC A320. On the MFD, the TOD distance indication is on top of another indication, making it impossible to read either one. Known...
