  1. Yep, do as Stephen said and you're all good.
  2. I don't think PMDG supports uploading any other data, although you can request winds from ActiveSky if you have that. See the intro manual for the PMDG plane for details (available on the 747 and 777).
  3. I am 99% sure you do this manually.
  4. Which aircraft is this? No you can't add Mach speeds without the data really.
  5. Hi, my e-mail is 



    And thanks again.

  6. That's a big ask - I will try and give a brief explanation later, but I have to go to work now. By the way, I found TOPER too restrictive, it doesn't seem to be very accurate to be honest - I made a spreadsheet from the FPPM/FCOM that calculates takeoff, but only with Flaps 15. It is less restrictive. It still doesn't use improved climb, as its a balanced field calculator, but I can send you a copy if you like?
  7. It works pretty damn well at the moment, so any update will only make it better. I have stuck with 1.28.8 due to a bug in the latest version with altitude selection, but I am happy with it. To be honest, there's no other program that you can spend money on (for FS at least) that will do the things PFPX will. Cheers, Rudy
  8. Thanks guys, I'll give it a go. Look forward to the expanded version, Jon, and thanks for the hard work :)
  9. Hi chaps, Has anyone had more luck than me using the FlyPrecisely 747-400ER profile with the PMDG 747ER than me? No matter what I do, it seems to have altitudes all over the place (stepping up and down irrationally - even with no optimisation set). It also suggest 320 at all times for initial cruise altitude, even with MTOW - optimum is around FL300. It also suggests holding fuel of 3400kg for 30 mins which seems minimal (@ gross weight of 241 tonnes). I am really struggling to get this profile to work as nicely as the inbuilt 747 profiles, which are fine if you have a base bias figure and tweak around the ISA. I have tried using bias figures, but these vary wildly depending on the gross weight, and finding a happy medium is eluding me. I am also using PFPX 1.28.8. Can anyone offer me some advice on how to get accurate calculations with it? Cheers, Rudy

    Simbrief doesn't come close to the power of PFPX. And it is not dead. Just because it hasn't been updated for a while. I mean no-one says the PMDG 737 is dead because it has't been updated for years.
  11. PF3 can be a real pain to create flight plans for. I have sort of given up using it for this reason. Make a separate plan for PF3. Make your first plan for you and the aircraft, save it, then modify a copy of it for PF3. I can only suggest you make the flight plan with the required waypoints manually - i.e. do not select a SID or STAR in PFPX and add the required waypoints into your plan manually that fit with PF3's distance expectations. You can do this by looking at your SID/STAR charts and selecting the waypoints you want as appropriate for PF3. Someone else may have other ideas, but that is the way I did it. Cheers, Rudy

    At the moment, no, no, no, no. You can choose your route as you see fit.
  13. You can just type "RNP2" in the field and it will be there. You don't need to use the selection box if you don't want to. Hope this helps. Cheers, Rudy
  14. Yes I have had to go back to 1.28.8 for now.
  15. Hi all, Just to let you know, as it isn't immediately obvious and doesn't come to the top of the download list when you update files, updated Qantas and Jetstar formats are available at: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/4345-qantas-ofps/ http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/4346-jetstar-ofp/ Cheers, Rudy
