Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so any idea when the 787 performance files will be coming out for correct fuel planning on the QW 787?

 

Thanks

Um....surely an aircraft profile is something that QW should be providing? It's not up to Aerosoft to have to create new profiles every time a new aircraft appears on the market. QW are the ones that know the specs of the aircraft.

You're right Neal, but even PMDG doesn't provide the profiles for PFPX ;-)

 

Thankfully it's not rocket science to make them.

Just a couple of thousand lines of data, if you have it.

I'm sorry if you guys are so confused... I meant a performance file to calculate the fuel for ex. Like the stuff that comes out of airlinerperformance.net/

The 787 files are now available at: http://airlinerperformance.net/aircraft-types/.

 

Installation instructions can be found at: http://airlinerperformance.net/installation/

Could you please help. I download the 787-800 files and they are .per while in the PFPX Data aircraft template all the files are Text files. What do I do??? I am a complete computer moron and I would totally appreciate your help

The reason is, that the linked instruction tells you to place the .per files into the AircraftTypes folder, not into the AircraftTemplates one ;)

Hey there Guys.

When I import the PER files from the site above, they seem to have the wrong ETOPS settings. Editing the ETOPS profile in PFPX (i.e. removing ETOPS180 and adding ETOPS330) appears not to make a difference. Taking a sample route LHR to BOS, PFPX was unable to locate any ETP Airports and range rings remained at 180mins ETOPS.

 

oh well.

 

P.S. Super-realistic chaps would amend the Trent1000 ETOPS to 140mins in their current state.

Hi there & thks, interestingly Under "advanced" I have an "ETOPS" section, but no "EDTO" section (attached below).
