On behalf of JARDesign Evgeny Romanov, I would like to share with you the following interesting information …

According to Evgeny; as you know may be, we are working hard on our new project, the JD340. One important part of aircraft procedures in general is Checklists / Announces. This already worked in some way with our JD320/330, but I was not 100 percent happy with that feature. That said, for the upcoming JD340 we would prepare a more interesting feature … it will be an animated copilot, as I dreamed of. We just build this plugin and include it as free update with the beta version of our JD330. We absolutely need to test it with a “live” aircraft to understand if it is good working in a way we want it. If it will be ok, we will include it in our JD340.

This is next public version of a330 for X-Plane 11. Please take part in this beta-tests if you really want be beta-tester. If you want fly-ready product – please just wait. Main improvement – new Checklist/Events/SOP/, based on instant CoPilot plugin
