QW 787 Performance PFPX

Recommended Posts

I changed the ETOPS settings - attached is that page from the Aircraft Editor.

 

(I added the scenario for ETOPS 330; and set it to a Max Div Time of 330 mins)

You need to enter your ETOPS airports in the ETP1 ETP2 entries etc, paired.

 

v1.28.9i uses a different method, hotfix linked above:

Many Thanks, that got it.

 

I needed the Hotfix; and to manually enter the ETOPS Diversionary Airports as you say.

 

Cheers,

Chris.

With these profiles, PFPX plans flights at FL030.  Anyone know why?  I can't set the initial cruise altitude higher than that without getting an error.

Sure.  I've included the plan page and the top of the results.  As you can see the altitudes are really erratic, never going above 7000ft.

tried to generated it and it works with the  789 profile installed on my comp.

maybe an issue with the lbs profile part ...

Sure.  I've included the plan page and the top of the results.  As you can see the altitudes are really erratic, never going above 7000ft.

 

Which version of PFPX is in use ? v1.28.9i is current.

 

As Phillipe has pointed out, try setting PFPX and your aircraft entry to use the same weight format ie KG's or Lbs

Alright; after updating to the latest version and changing the units on the 788 to kg it seems to be working fine.

 

It's interesting that the units would create this kind of problem; I know I didn't run into it with the PMDG 777 profile...

 

Thanks guys.

Pfpx is so complex that one little change can cause a lot of trouble.

 

glad it worked good.
