  1. Thanks for helping out planebass. ๐Ÿ˜Š Iโ€™ll keep trying ...
  2. Hey JP, itโ€™s for the purpose of reproduction of the OFP. One can always make an airport which is not the closest ALTN-1 when planning your flight. Contingency fuel also helps keep options open. But I know what you mean and you make perfect sense. X
  3. VHOJT, you're absolutely correct. However it only applies to the chosen alternate. i.e. Alternate 1. This is my current solution as of yesterday as a compromise. At least for the top alternate the value is correct. For the other three I have <&FinalReserveFuel>. It's three similar values, but allows me to quickly add the two. Many thanks for you input.
  4. I have added a picture to aid in what I am trying to do. The fuel block is basically similar to its real life JetPLan modified counterpart. All quantities match except the alternate diversion fuel value (trip+final reserve) at the end of every alternate line. I have also added my fuel policy section pertaining to reserve fuel. "Hold over destination" and "Hold over alternate" are blank. Naming conventions have been updated to reflect the IRL counterpart. You will notice the FINAL RES line holding the 30 minutes of hold. You will also notice in my alternate section, I put in "FinResFuel" even t
  5. Ok, understood, however now you have 30 minutes of final reserve PLUS 30 minutes of alternate holding. The 30 minutes final reserve IS the 30 minutes holding for whichever alternate you choose to use. In other words, if I have to add the alternate trip fuel to the Final reserve. Final Reserve is the final 30 minutes holding at destination. Whether it's your original destination or a new one (alternate).I am seeing a few possibilities, however it is going to take some very deep digging. Thanks for your time...
  6. Hello, sorry to revive an old thread, however it gives relevance. I too am trying to get this same figure, but to no avail. I have tried to 1. make sure that the final reserve fuel (Final 30 minutes hold) is in fact seen as hold fuel. It does, because it auto-populates "Hold Time" in the Fuel Planning section. 2. I tried additionally to manually add a holding time of 30 minutes at the alternate airport selection fields when planning. Even with both these holding fields filled in at 30 minutes, the field "<&AltnxFuel>" only gives my trip f
  7. Hello, to the expert(s) here ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was wondering if there is a way to create an average track for the main route. Unfortunately, even though the data field is available for the alternates, it is not available for the main airports. I tried a combination of all relevant data fields to see if it was there but not mentioned. No luck. Would there be a way to at least create a magnetic track (MT) number, using the two airports? Thanks..
  8. Currently on layover. Will do once back. Thanks for the offer.
  9. Hello, I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to make PFPX add multiple values under one caption in the OFP fuel section. This Operator's OFP has an additional fuel section. Under that section, fuel can be added for e.g. MEL, ATC, OPN (Operational) or TKR(Tankering). For one, when I add the additional fuel caption text, PFPX places the same caption as the contingecy fuel caption text. "CONT". So ADDNL is manually placed in the template. Right now only extra fuel is placed behind this text. Isn't there any way to tell PFPX that I want different extra fuel entries
  10. Hey Stephen, I tried via EDIT AIRCRAFT menu option if that is what you meant. And indeed, this time it auto-filled the new negative value. I'll do a few moer like this to see if indeed that is where the problem is. Thanks, Xander
  11. Hello, for some time now I have noticed that the APM function can not accept negative values. When I do a reading, and apply it and then click close, it will give actual, proposed and new values. In my current flight, I have a proposed value of -1.5% and a New value of 1.5. If I save it, it will change to (+)1.5% instead of negative. If I try to insert a minus sign myself I will get the standard Windows bleep. Does anyone else have this? Xander
  12. Hello, does PFPX have somewhere where you can select in what text encoding (ANSI,UTF-8, UTF-16 etc) the Save OFP text file gets saved as? Cheers, Xander
