Holiday Group Flight for the 772LR - SQ22 WSSS to KEWR

Recommended Posts

Guest SIX

=================NOTE: I posted this in the PSS Boeing forum, but I thought the Boeing fans here in the PMDG forum would enjoy this just the same.=================Hey guys,I wanted to let everybody know there is going to be a group flight that will imitate the longest commercial airlines flight in the world: SQ22 from WSS to KEWR.Your looking at about 8,800nm which is about 18:30 hr:mm.The folks at the Singapore VACC are saying they can FULLY staff Singapore from the ground up on VATSIM no matter the time. And I am sure I can get the guys in NY to work something up for us.Ben Hoffman, a real world dispatcher, will be doing a briefing package for the PSS 777-200LR pilots. If you fly a different a/c you can still use the information but you naturally will need to adjust certian aspects.OF course you can fly any livery you desire. If you desire you can fly the PSS Airbus A340-300, which in reality SQ flies the A340-500. You can make it without "mid-air" refueling, but you have to go with almost no weight. The 777-200LR can make it easily with plenty reserve, as it was built to compete directly with the A340-500 on range and actually out last it's Airbus competitor by about 500nm on range. Lastly, there is a "purest" option: CLS developed a fine A340-500, from what I have read and heard. I don't own the software so I can't personally say so, but I have heard good things: http://www.commerciallevel.com/webshop.php...groep=1&cur=USDThe only problem is timing. Up until just a few minutes ago I thought I could make the trip with like a Friday 10:00Z departure, but now I am in limbo with my work schedule. I am not completly sure what to say about the time. As soon as I say one thing another will happen. There is still a good three days to nail that aspect down. It will probably happen in the later hours of Friday, like 24:00Z or 01:00Z on Saturday.So, if anybody, who is interested. Right now it is just three pilots. Myself, an Aussie who is a spectacular pilot who could easily one day be a real world pilot and a fellow UAL pilot who is a long hauler.Let me also say here: I don't expect you to be at the helm for an entire 18:40 flight. We will take off and get to cruise, interact and talk for an hour or so and then go do things and check in during the course of the flight. Then as the flight winds down come in for the descent and arrival planning.Thanks for reading this and I hope you will respond.Wilson HinesMy Blog: http://www.wilsonhines.com --------------------------------------http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpghttp://fs2crew.com/linepilot.jpghttp://online.vatsimindicators.net/837438/3074.pngWilson HinesMy Blog: http://www.wilsonhines.com --------------------------------------http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpghttp://fs2crew.com/linepilot.jpghttp://online.vatsimindicators.net/837438/3074.png

Sounds interesting. Maybe if I have my PMDG744 towed to the runway, zero passengers, zero cargo, step climbs and favourible winds I might make it? I better practice dead sticking just in case.Ken.

With the PMDG 747-400, I loaded up the flight plan into the FMC and should arrive in KEWR with 6200 lbs of fuel remaining. Keep in mind this is with no passengers or cargo. Anything further on the flight?Ken

Well I successfully completed a test flight with the PMDG 747-400 from WSSS to KEWR with the flight plan provided above. I pushed back from the gate at 19:30z December 22nd. I did not load any passengers nor cargo. I did have a full load of fuel - 382,600 pounds. My Gross weight was 776,900 pounds and my zero fuel weight 394,100 pounds. I initially set my reserve to 5.0 with a cost index of 10 and a cruise altitude at FL310. I used 2000 feet for step climbs, TO1 -5% and CLIMB-1 for thrust limits. I flew on-line with Squawkbox/ Vatsim and ran ActiveSky version 6. Once airborne I experienced severe turbulence at cruise altitude and had to change my reserve to .5 and at some points it would look like I'd have 20.0 fuel remaining at KEWR. I was unsure of how much fuel I would consume. I had favourable winds and had tail winds as high as 151 knots. I performed step climbs. NY_KEN_DEP was on-line and helped me with my missed approach of 04L. I was vectored back around, landed, taxied to the gate, shut down at 13:30z December 22nd with 4,400 pounds of fuel remaining 18hours later.
