planning in detail?? Tim M??

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I am hoping there is a real world pilot or anyone that can help me with the full procedure to planning for the 737-700 or 737 series from arriving at the airport going through the whole procedure, ie what charts do you check for this type and select? I think it is called the reference handbook for derates, rwy lengths etc etc, fuel planning etc......... weather etc...I have no found anywhere where a pilot has gone through this in detail for this type?!!ThanksMark

real-world operators use a specialized planning program, sometimes called "loadmaster" or "accuload", or other names as part of the dispatch process to create the takeoff data for a particular flight.It's also possible to manually calculate the data using about 4 linear feet of printed materials, none of which are readily available.The best tools available to us, and the order in which they are used, are:Various web sites like flightware.com, simroutes.com - used to determine the route of flight.Flight planning programs such as FSBuild that take that route, and your aircraft basic data, and derive fuel requirements, and give you a dispatch sheet showing your flight plan, and your weights.Tomaflex, for taking your aircraft type, your load, your airport, your weather, and your power settings, and giving you yes/no data for each runway and power and flap combination, as well as vspeeds and OAT settings for derating the power.That's about as close as it gets to reality for us.
