Load manager

Recommended Posts

While its probably too late to incorporate into the 747 models, maybe it could for future products.I've been covering mass and balance in ground school lately, and it would be nice if the load manager could be a bit more complex:-1) It would be nice if you could (similar to the PSS B777 one) enter the number of flight crew, and cabin crew, either randomly, or by clicking on a seat position.2) Show the maximum useful load, allowing us to trade-off fuel or pax/cargo3) Also it would be nice if we could specify weights for the different cargo pallets4) Incorporate an integrated fuel planner

>2) Show the maximum useful load, allowing us to trade-off fuel>or pax/cargoDoesn't it already do that? As far as I recall, below or on top of the fuel selector slide there's displayed the maximum amount of fuel allowed with the current payload.Talking about the fuel slide, it could be nice it was possible to select larger increments using the page up/down bottons. Moving the slide with the mouse, the increments are rather large, and it takes forever to move it with the arrow keys. (Another thing is that I really prefer using the keyboard rather than the mouse). Or as someone else suggested in another thread, simply make it possible to enter the amount of fuel directly.Anyway, agree with the remaining points - good suggestions :-)/ Jesper
