This OFP template is basically the standard one, but with edits to suit my personal preferences.
I thought I'd share it for those who want the same information but didn't want to edit files.
The default PFPX template is good but there was 2 things I didn't like doing:
1. Calculating the baggage weight for the Majestic Q400 load manager; and
2. Having to use Active Sky to get some data required for Boeing FMC PERF INIT entry.
I think the OFP should be the single source of truth from our fictional dispatch and didn't like that information missing.
How to install:
1. Copy PFPX+.txt into the folder C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data\FlightplanTemplates\
2. Select PFPX+ from the OFP dropdown list next time you create an OFP. It will remember your selection.
Changes in this from the default PFPX OFP Template:
-Added baggage to weights section for aircraft that need this in load manager (like the Majestic Q400)
-Removed config from weights section (to fit baggage as most templates only have 1 config).
-Wind component and temps now placed at bottom of OFP near the Climb, Descent, Cruise wind/temp information so that all wind is in the one place. Ensure you are ticking "wind information" when selecting the OFP from the dropdown or you won't get the climb/descent winds.
-Added average wind direction and velocity (for Boeing CDU Perf Init page)
-Added TOC OAT (for Boeing CDU Perf Init page).
-Added average OAT.
Note: ISA DEV is not added because the FMC calculates TOC ISA DEV from the TOC Temp.
Note: Departure and Destination surface weather/winds are not included as they are already in the METAR output.
