Hi all,

 

I'm in the process of creating an OFP template and ran into a few issues. Maybe one of you guys has an idea on how to resolve them?

 

1) Is there a way to display the ETOPS fuel and time like this? I find that only <&EROPSFuel> is available, I can't find any operator for the resulting time.

Zitieren

                       FUEL  TIME

ETOPS XTRA        0  0000

 

 

2) Can I display an Enroute Alternate when I'm planning with one, and have it say "N/A" when not? Like this:

Zitieren

NOMINATED ERA EIDW

    or:

Zitieren

NOMINATED ERA N/A

 

 

3) ETOPS related...is there a way to compress the ETOPS results that PFPX gives, and add in the bold items? 

 

This is how it should end up:

this is what I have so far:

4) That might be a first as far as PFPX feature requests are concerned but...is it possible to include the True Airspeed to an Alternate? The OFP I'm recreating has this section:

Zitieren

1ST ALT: EGPH/EDI
EGNX TNT2N TNT UN57 POL UN601 INPIP INPIP1E EGPH
TRT 339 DIST 0237 N445 FL360 W/C P009 FUEL/TIME 3112+0/0.41

 

 

 

5) Is it possible to change the header when exporting the OFP as PDF? PFPX defaults to:

     "ABC123 KJFK-EGLL (02-Feb-2021) #1", I would like it to read: "AB 123/02 FEB/JFK-LHR"

 

 

 

6) For the section where the effect of lower altitudes on trip fuel are displayed: Can I have PFPX show the resulting new trip fuel on a lower flight level, instead of just the difference?

         "ONE FL BELOW TIME 0607 BURNOFF 33000" instead of "ONE FL BELOW TIME 0607 BURNOFF P150"

 

Looking forward to your suggestions, thank you all very much in advance!

Hi mate,

1) No, I don't think there is any field to get EROPS time.

2) Again, don't think so.

 

3) Not that I can tell.  You'd have to leave the field blank, calcualte with/without antice and add in manually after you've released the OFP in a text editor.

 

4) Don't think possible.

 

5) Not sure.

 

6) No.

 

A lot of these things you've mentioned I give a quick tweak in Word or some other text editor after releasing.

 

Cheers,
Rudy

Hiya,

 

glad to hear back from you Rudy, I've always appreciated your effort and expertise with the Qantas and BA templates!

 

Judging from your input, I've pretty much used all the options PFPX gives to their full potential with my template here, anything more would have to be done outside PFPX. Good to know!

Yeah I think you have used the options up.  With so so many different types between all the airlines, it is difficult to get everything exactly the same - I definitely found that with the QF ones - lots of unusual fields.

 

Thanks for the kind words.

 

Good luck with your OFP and don't forget to upload it when you're done haha :)  It looks a bit DLHish??

Weil, you just need to switch two letters around actually - it's the LIDO format used by the DHL group in its European AOCs :)

 

And yes, I've found that PFPX is in parts closely tied to a EASA and LIDO form of displaying data, working with the template made me realize the challenges one might face with a totally different fuel policy regulation, for example. 

 

I think I should be able to upload it later in the day.
