  1. Some sort of update on the issue from the developers would be good Cheers, Rudy
  2. Yep, go into the aircraft editor, edit the aircraft. There is a field somewhere there with "Weight change" and you can enter it there.
  3. Maybe we can start a user post with updated ones we've found until an update is made? Cheers, Rudy
  4. Hi guys, Any word on this issue? Cheers, Rudy

    Changes - Version 3 Added JST_DP OFP file to allow for fuel to be put into correct fields when using decision points Updated fuel fields DP data now uses TANKER fuel rather than EXTRA fuel to stop PFPX adding more EROPS build-up fuel than necessary Hi all, This is a two Jetstar OFPs created from flight plan samples. I have paid great attention to accuracy and have made the format as close as possible to Jetstar's with the information I have. DP data is borrowed from Qantas format as I did not have any information for them. If you are doing a regular short-haul flight with no ETOPS or decision points, use the JST OFP. Use JST_DP OFP if you are going to be using descision points (e.g. DPA, DP1, DPD, ETOPS etc.). This will put the fuel in the right fields. Also, when using DPs, use the TANKER fuel field in PFPX to add extra fuel, so as it doesn't affect decision point calculations and load you up with more fuel than required. Please refer to the manual with my Qantas OFPs (also available on the Aerosoft PFPX Downloads forum) for futher information on DPs and fuel fields to use. I don't have specific information for Jetstar, so I plan my own Jetstar flights according to Qantas procedures. I suggest using the fuel policies from that file, as well as setting your EROPS settings for your Jetstar aicraft up similarly to the Qantas aicraft in that file. Included also is a Microsoft Word template for you to paste your OFP into so it looks like the Jetstar format. Logo is from www.jetstar.com Hope you enjoy! Cheers, Rudy

    Changes – Version 4 Updated fuel fields to include VFR times Using TANKER fuel instead of EXTRA to allow accurate DP1/DPD/DPE fuel calculations Updated DPA information and calculation method Updated manual to reflect changes (pay particular attention to Planning DPA and PFPX Fuel Sections) Introduction This is a set of three Qantas-format OFP files for PFPX that as closely as possible replicate the Qantas flight plan formats. Included OFP files are the newer short-haul format, the older short-haul format, and the long-haul format. Great attention to accuracy has been given to these formats, although some trade-offs have to be made due to the differences between PFPX and Qantas software. Also included are two aircraft (Boeing 737-838 VH-VXH and Boeing 747-438 VH-OJM) that have been set up with the required EROPS data, equipment, and weights. The weights are made to match their respective PMDG aircraft. Two fuel policies are also included. This document will give a brief overview of how to use these formats. It is not possible to cover every aspect of flight planning “Qantas-style”, but important information will de detailed. I am in no way affiliated with Qantas. Whilst I have used reliable information as much as possible, some aspects are simplified or altered to suit PFPX or flight simulation. I welcome any question, comment, correction or suggestion, and can be reached on the forum, or at: rudy.fidao@gmail.com Cheers, Rudy Fidao 21st January 2017
  7. I just copy and paste mine into Word, edit anything I want, and print it from there.
  8. There is no command I know of for next leg anything as far as I know. PFPX is surprisingly flexible in getting OFPs to look like their real-world counterparts. But some things you just have to write yourself in a text editor afterwards.

    Changes v3 Additional newer short-haul format Updated manual information to reflect Version 3 changes, removed obsolete/unnecessary information Updated fuel policy files Updated aircraft files, including more accurate critical-point fuel policies Updated ETOPS format Addition of ETOPS format to long-haul format (formerly “744” format in previous packages) Updated samples
  11. Flight Plan Template Guide (Rev. 12) Download that link, and look for Grid MORA or something like that. Cheers, Rudy
  12. Hi mate, The PFPX fuel policy editor allows you to change fuel policy to your heart's content. Click on the little picture of the fuel bowser up in the top toolbar. On my installation, it gives enroute reserve as 10% of trip fuel - which seems right. Bear in mind a lot of airlines cap this at some figure or find a way to reduce it from actually being 10% on longer flights. Cheers, Rudy
  13. Bruce is right - if you're doing a Navlog or something, some strange things happen using my field length method. Use the method he describes if things don't work as expected.
  14. Have a look at the Flight Plan Template Guide (downloadable from the FlightSimSoft site). It explains how to fix your problem. Basically, easy way is to make your fields always a certain length. For example, <&Altn1[0]:15> The :15 bit will make sure the field is always 15 characters long, making it easy to calculate where things will end up. Hope this helps, Rudy
  15. I have noticed the same problem.
