Just bought the 737NG..

Recommended Posts

And I've got a couple of queries... firstly, I followed the instructions in the manual and set up the suggested key combination for the stairs... but nothing happens... am I missing anything? At the gate, door open, engines off, apu running with power on..? Also, I'm toying with the idea of converting the fuel preparation/planning bits in the manual into a spreadsheet to do my fuel planning - but I'm missing a vital bit of info - what would be a reasonably accurate basic operating weight to start with? Alternatively, can anyone suggets a rady-made fuel planner for this aircraft? I've not had it long but have to say it's looking good.Ian

Just a warning,PMDG warns against using third party fuel planners for their a/c. It may become unstable. I don't use it, but just wanted you to know.Tom

Jim,Yes, you're right - I had the wrong aircraft model - no stairs! The fuel planner I wanted was something like the Excel sheets I used to use for my Dreamfleet 737 and PSS 747. Anyway, I'll check out the one you suggested, thanks.Ian

Guys,There's nothing wrong with 3rd party fuel PLANNERS - it's 3rd party fuel LOADERS that are the problem when it comes to the 747. The 737 should be fine as it uses the default MS fuel system and not a custom one like what was programmed for the 747.
