As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

    Fuel loading

    it seems, that you don't want me. This link is also not working: I am out of my wits. Maybe someone blocked me?

    Fuel loading

    Hi Dave, I tried another browser (edge) it did not work either. How do I ge to the discord server? do I have to register with discord first? Sorry, this is new to me

    ok that explains it. I will wait for the next update.

    Fuel loading

    I was just planning a flight EDDM-KSFO with the A330. I used your template, Dave and came up with more fuel than the fuelplanner. But that really is besides the point. I put the values in the fuelplanner and created a loadsheet, that looked ok. However, when I "loaded instantly" the MCDU3 came up with a TO Weight that was higher than expected and exceeded legal limits. Here are the facts:

    Hi Dave, Thanks for the elaborate explanation. I also use AS and it works fine. I already downloaded your template an will use it gladly. As for the PdF, see for yourself, what happens to me. There is an error code that might help you determine the cause. Best!

    Thanks, Dave, what about the fuel factor M07, that was mentioned by Mathjis? I looked at the couumuity, looks interesting. However, I tried to access the membership application and failed, it is not there, there is only an error message. Happy flights

    Thank you, Dave, forgive my ignorance, where or how do I find the Simbrief template, pls? So far I unse simbrief and use fuelfactor M07 as Mathjis suggested in some post dealing with fuel planning.

    Thank you Dave, did as told. unfortunately, the load Instant option still produces a difference in fuel loaded from the fuel planner. What now? And I have discovered, that since the fuel load produces an incorrect trim setting, (I do trim manually) the plane is always very hard at takeoff, meaning that you have to really pull the stick to get the nose up.

    TOD calculation

    Here is one example. TOD @ FL400 180 mi out. Target descent rate at FL 345 around 1500 ft. That seems odd to me. Or are these standard procedures for a A330 I can hardly imagine

    Fuel loading

    Did you mean: "if you ran the ASUpdater without..." ? So what do I do now? uninstall and reinstall or just rund the ASU again? I "Generate Loadsheet" and then "initialize the loadsheet in MDCU3. Then I used "instant load" because loading fuel with GSX costs time, that I don't want to spend always. I thought that is why the option "Load Instand" exists. But I probably did not understand that rightly. I "Generate Loadsheet" and then "initialize the loadsheet in MDCU3.

    I did answer your questions. GSX is up to date and the version of the A330 is, as I wrote above already 1.0.0.7. That is what my system shows and ASUpdater has no update for me. So I think it should be up to date. Hmm, as I stated above, I am running A330 1.0.0.7 not update is offered in the updater. how can I update the fuelplanner? In other posts there are references to problems with fuel loading. It was suggested, that disabling GSX would solve the problems, so I tried that, in my case it did not solve the problem, it persists.

    TOD calculation

    Yes I am sure, that I configured the aircraft correctly. Yesterday, the TOD was 180 mi away from KLAX. With a 777 from PMDG the TOD is 140 mi away, but with a much steeper initial descent, (approx 2700 ft) so the glideslope is doable. With your a330, such a steep descent would accelerate the plane too much. At least in my sim. I will try to recreate some flights to show my point.

    Fuel loading

    yes, I run every update that GSX offers. If you look at my post, I have stated, that I disabled GSX, however, so GSX should not be a factor. Other posts show, that fuel loading is a prob, and that disabling GSX could be a solution. I am showing,though, it is not. And my version of a330 is 1.0.0.7, up to date, I think, Mr. Mopperle. I am trying to help with your product and I am trying to report reproducable errors, so you can improve the sim. It is not nice to be treated like a dummy. Read what I posted.

    TOD calculation

    I do have problems with the TOD calculation. If the flighplan in the MCDU contains only the destination airport and no specification of a runway yet, obviously no TOD is computed and the plane keeps on flying past the destination because the "pause at TOD" option is not invoked. To circumvent that problem I started entering a runway and STAR into the flightplan. So today, as in other flights b4, the plane stopped 21 mi b4 TOD en route to KLAX at FL 400, apporx. 140 mi away from destination. However, when I pressed "P" to restart the sim, the PFD showed that I was already 6800 ft too high for the proper descent. Plus, the plane accelerates even in high altitudes pretty much if descent rate is greater 1800 ft/min. This is strange, since IAS should increase only at lower FLs, whereas with the 330 one can even descend with 1800 ft below 18000 ft without picking up too much speed.
