744 Optimum/Maximum FL Chart

Recommended Posts

The attached gif is of a chart I've got in Excel, mapping Optimum/Maximum FLs verses Gross Weight (lbs). I loaded her to MTOGWand watched the VNAV page as I decreased the fuel loading.Much to my chagrin, I intended to decrease the lowest charted weight by restarting the test run with an empty payload and exactly enough fuel to match the lightest test data obtained in the first run. However, the VNAV page displayed an optimum FL that was 2000 ft higher at the same gross weight (the only difference is different zero fuel weight).Must be more to this calculation than simply gross weight.
