Follow-up to EGLL KLAX flight

Recommended Posts

Guest D17S

Remember a bit back? Steve provided us with a full rundown on a real flight from EGLL to KLAX? I finally got a chance to check out the PMDG model vs the real flight. Here

Sam,It's amazing isn't it? You should post this in the FSX forum for the dev team to read... ;-)Cheers,

Way to go Sam. I havent had a chance to run it myself as I have been working on something else that you might find interesting. Amazing that PMDG were able to model the FMC so accurately.Be doing that leg again in a few days.CheersSteve

Great info, Sam! Believe there was an ongoing effort to revise the FSBuild PMDG 747 fuel flow figures, but haven't heard anything about it recently.Would be great to have FSBUILD profiles for all of the Queen's engine models. I'd do it (retired guys have the time :)), but don't have access to the performance data.Jim Harnes

The engines are only for looks. They don't perform differently in this model of the aircraft.

Good write up Sam, nice one!Have been going over some performance based stuff with Steve and he recommended that for a challenge I try the LOOP4 departure out of LAX with a DAG transition thence out towards Vegas. Easy enough at ISA, but what about at 340t TOW and a temperature of 28 degrees, QNH 1023hpa? It gets mighty interesting then.The LOOP4 requires you to maintain a heading of 250 off the westbound runways, then shortly after going over to departure you get vectored back overhead the LAX VOR. The altitude restriction overhead LAX is 10,000 feet with a further restriction of 13,000 feet at KEGGS, just another 8 miles away.The vectoring back overhead LAX is all done within a 10nm radius of LAX VOR and it's a lot tougher than it sounds. Steve said that they clean up to Flap 1, then once established inbound back towards LAX they clean up fully but stay at the clean manoevureing speed for best climb. He also said the real kicker is meeting the alt restriction at KEGGS. Having done a full takeoff calculation I ended up with a packs on departure, and an assumed temp derate of 43deg c. Sure enough, by the time I had 'self-vectored' back onto the LAX VOR, I was doubtful of making the 10,000 ft restriction. In the end I fell short by a few hundred feet, ultimately passing KEGGS at 12,600 feet. CLOSE! Fortunately for me I had a little more help in the flight deck than you normally do in the PMDG 744, and man did I need it on this occasion. (Watch this space for more info on that...) :-)The landing at KDEN was pretty interesting too, I was mighty heavy as I had deliberately wanted to test myself out of LAX earlier on, so I was carrying a lot of fuel into the situation.I wanted to test out a few autoland related things so set up and briefed for a CAT3 Autoland onto Rwy 35R. Vref for the flaps 30 config was 163 knots or so I think, my landing card is at home so I'm not exactly sure.Well with the heat and elevation it was always going to be interesting... I had a chance to look at the groundspeed as we came over the fence and #### if it wasn't 191 knots! I applied full reverse and had preconfigured Autobrakes 3. The touchdown was characteristically smooth but well-placed. I've never left the reversers on for that long, it felt like a friggin eterntiy before the 80 knots call came, by which time I had already lost my nerve and taken manual braking action to assist in the deceleration. You see, I was watching the opposite end of the runway and it was coming up on me mighty fast...I ended up vacating at the very end of the runway, and thank goodness for the long taxi to the UA terminal is all I can say. As my F/O went through the after landing checks I brought up the gear page and saw (for the first time ever) that my brake temps were seriously high. I kept the taxi speed right down at 10 knots to give them time to settle down but even by the time we parked up they were still seriously hot. My suspicion is that I was possibly at or slightly over the max landing weight for this situation.Wow, what can I say. If you're one of those guys who mostly flies around at the default weather settings then I reckon this adds a whole dimension to flying the 744. If you want to see how good your skills REALLY are, then get out and do some hot and high work. I'm just so stoked with the fact that the PMDG model suffers under the same challenges as the real world equivalent and to the same extent.If you haven't been out to the edge of the performance envelope yet, then my suggestion is pack your bags and take a trip out that way!

hello foc danur is not bad too ...i took your route and weather .... the little problem is on route reserve option but i prefer have more fuel than not enough ...enjoy it i suppose it will follow your fmc predictions and give you a good paper view for the whole flight ... i didnt enclose the etps scenarios but might good to have them toosee youphilSTART OF COMPANY FLIGHTPLAN BAW0001 06.08.01 EGLLKLAX.001 SEQ005 RLS000 AIRCRAFT B744--CF6-GE STD 15.15Z ATD .....

"The PMDG 744 PAX has THREE ENGINE MODELS but ONLY ONE engine FDE - it is the GE engines only which are used for the flight model but the EXTERIOR models have all three variants RR, PW and GE. So the performance of the aircraft (PAX only, not the cargo version) is GE performances."http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchThat's what I based my information off.

Air New Zealand's code is NZ/ANZ not NZA ie NZ on the schedules but ANZ on all the paperwork except Mt Cook which is NZM and Eagle which is EAG, they are express subsidiaries.I may very well be on NZ1 this November, in the jumpseat no less (I hope) ... ah FAA Dispatcher License, is there anything you cant do? :)
