  1. Norwegian LIDO layout *B737-800 short-haul*

    Just throw the contents of the PFPX Data folder in this .zip into your existing one at:
    C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data\FlightplanTemplates (or wherever you have your PFPX files located)
    This is just a basic rendition of the LIDO layout Norwegian Air was using at some time shortly after the switch 
    from AirSupport PPS8 to LIDO v7.

    I recommend you use this layout for Norwegian Air flights on the 737 exclusively, this is highly tailored
    to that operation and might cause problems down the road if you try to plan wildly exotic stuff with it.
    Some tips:
    1) LNNGW and EIFVX are included with some weight variants
    2) CLB at 250/280/.78 
       CRZ at CI15
       DES at .78/280/250   -> that's what Norwegian Air was planning with at the time of my samples.
    3) You'll need to select "NAX_LIDO" from the crewinfo dropdown to take full advantage of the layout.
       Use 'NAX_LIDO_TOAltn' as an OFP layout when planning with a takeoff alternate.
       after you release a flight, select this when printing:
        -Courier Bold 12pt
        -CrewInfo yes
        -ATC-FP no (as it's included in the OFP) 
    What I added was the Alternate Nav Log, this is an EASA requirement that I believe came after my most recent OFP
    samples were dated but is now mandatory in every OFP.



  2. Eurowings Discover (OCN) LH Group OFP template

    thanks for downloading my PFPX template. It closely resembles the current layout used by Lufthansa's newest leisure
    carrier venture/experiment, the very young and very hip and very start-uppy 'Eurowings Discover'!
    The OFPs are calculated by Lufthansa's dispatch centre so I would assume the current DLH OFP layout looks pretty
    much the same. Keep in mind they are switching to electronic OFPs anyway though, so as for many airlines, printed
    PDF versions of flightplans will be a thing of the past.
    Anyway, I've built this layout because it was fun, it's a pretty comprehensive one, and I've also set it up to be 
    compatible with aircraft types and fuel policies beyond your standard European A320 ops.
    1) Go into Explorer, paste this into the navigation bar in the top center:
        "%PUBLIC%\Documents\PFPX Data\FlightplanTemplates"
       This will open a folder containing all your installed flightplan layouts.
    2) Put the "OCN.txt" file into your this folder you just opened.
    3) The next time you start PFPX, "OCN" will be available as a flightplan layout from the dropdown-menu.
    4) optional: Lufthansa/Ocean seem to use Courier Bold around 12pt as font, 
                so you can set your PFPX up to use this, too.
    Dispatcher info at the end of the OFP is taken from aircraft data. To edit, go into the aircraft database menu,
    select and edit the particular airframe as follows:
        Remarks -> Aircraft Operational Data:     enter phone number here
        Remarks -> Aircraft Remarks:         enter SITA address (7 digits, uppercase) here
    Known limitations:
    1) "SPEED" in the header can only show one of three options (ECON, MACH, or FIXED) instead of
        "VRBL" in real life. VRBL should be displayed when a flight is planned with alternating
        speed schedules (e.g. Oceanic crossings through MNPS airspace with fixed MACH required, but
        taking off with a cost index)
    2) Protected/un-protected contingency fuel not available in PFPX. The "CONT DES" in the fuel ladder is
        not accurate.
    3) EROPS data lacks many many details that PFPX just doesn't provide, like for example approach minima or crosswind
        components at aedequate enroute airfields.
    If you're into realism, feel free to edit these fields with a text editor after saving the OFP.
