Range for 737

Recommended Posts

Guest Jacob Lee

Good day all. I was wondering if someone can tell me the ranges for the PMDG 737 series. I believe in real life that the 737-700 has the longest range, but it seems that with the PMDG version the 737-700 has a relatively shorter range than the others. Is this true, or is it just my mind playing tricks on me? Thanks for the help as always. -- Jake

According to the PMDG manual (I don't have FS9 on the computer I am sitting at or I would check the planes themselves), the 737NG can hold 46,063 lbs of fuel (See Limitations p.4-4). Given that, the -600 should be able to fly ~4100nm, the -700 should be able to fly ~4000nm, the -800 should be able to fly ~4000nm, and the -900 should be able to fly 3400nm. These estimates are based the charts provided in the Cruise manual.Bob
