FSBuild aircraft profiles for PMDG aircraft

Recommended Posts

Guest Flightle

The PMDG aircraft are all fairly accurately represented in the Aircraft list for FSBuild. What's missing is the B737-600. I could manually build the .prf file if I could find the detailed tables of performace data required. This info is VERY hard to find though. Almost secretive it seems...Has somebody already reworked the 737 600-900 series in FSBuild for PMDG? If so, how can I find those performance files to add-in.Also, the performace data is great, but how do I account for changes in the COST INDEX. Obviously changing the CI in the FMS will change fuel burn but that wont be reflected in the NAV LOG printout based on the hard performace figures. Anybody found a way around this? Perhaps making a few aircraft profiles for a few common Cost Indexes?I am obviously interested in producting the most detailed fuel/time plan possible and using this great software, it is COMPLETELY possible. I know a lot of us own the PMDG and armed with the right profiles for FSBUILD, we can obtain HIGHLY accurate information to backup the FMS fuel calculation.Where can I find the highly detailed performance tables for the various 737 aircraft? Thanks,Forest

You'd indeed need several profiles as CI will affect speed and possibly cruise altitude.
