Fuel Jettison

Recommended Posts

Could someone confirm the Jettison still works after the update? I'm flying online OMDB - ZSPD and need to divert to VECC.I've done it many times before1. bring up fuel synoptic2. select Jettison A or B3.select both nozzles then turn fuel to remain knob I should then see green flow lines in the lower synoptic and jettison time?Rob

Hi, yes it is working. The fuel Lines turn to Magenta when jettison is processing. Jan-Paul

Hi Rob,don't forget about the override/jettison pumps. I also recall some issues regarding jettison system from the VC. Fuel to remain knob/value or something like that. From 2D cockpit the operation is just fine.happy dumping,delcom

Rob:Correct- will not operate properly in VC- must use 2D overhead for jettison ops...........let us know.Best-Carl F.

Well never got it working so I think somethings up with my install. I'm going to try and re apply the update.Bit off topic but... The reason I diverted was due to the aircraft being unable to maintain CRZ I was at the optimum alt but the Aircraft kept slowing to stick shaker speed, real world weather SAT was -22 TAT was 4c I know it's very hot this time of year over Asia but nothing the aircraft cant handle. On the VECC - ZSPD leg the same thing happpened so I just quit the sim. Took off at 12:00 GMT so kinda wasted the whole day, should have mowed the lawn :) No issues Previous flights EGSS -EDDF - OMDB FROM TO FLIGHT A/C REG TYPE ENGINE CONFIG OMDB ZSPD BAW3587C G-GSSB BOEING 747-400F CF6-80C2B1F FREIGHTER WEIGHT DISTRIBUTIONLOAD IN COMPARTMENTS 86040 BAG/132 CARGO/70445 MAIL/15463 OTHER/0PASSENGER/CABIN BAG 1008 AD/12 C/0 I/0 TOTAL/12+0TOTAL PAYLOAD 87048 LAST MINUTE CHANGESDRY OPERATING WEIGHT 165087 DEST SPEC CL/CPT +/- WEIGHTZERO FUEL WEIGHT ACTUAL 252135 MAX 288031TAKE OFF FUEL 69775TAKE OFF WEIGHT ACTUAL 321910 MAX 386167TRIP FUEL 60000LANDING WEIGHT ACTUAL 261910 MAX 302093TAXI OUT FUEL 225UNDERLOAD BEFORE LMC 35896 LIMITED BY ZFWBALANCING/TRIM CONDITIONSMACZFW 19%MACTOW 22% +6.0MACLDW 21%CAPTAINS INFORMATION/NOTESSTD WEIGHTS USED AD/84 C/35 I/0BLOCK FUEL/ 70000 (86687 LITER)LANDG FUEL/ 9775TAXI TIME 5 MINSELCAL/RSJMCREATED WITH TOPCAT 2.27 (27JUL08)AIRCRAFT FILE VERSION 1.17 (18MAY08)END LOADSHEET BAW3587C OMDB-ZSP

Rob:I think this is an AS6.5/asx and FS weather engine interaction issue. Were you using either weather program? I had a similar experince from Joburg to Cairo, forcing a divert to Kinshasa.I think Pete keeps working on this with FSUIPC but I don't think its completly fixed- yet.Best-Carl F.

Hey Carl, yeah I always use Active sky running on my networked PC. I had this issue a long time ago flying over africa so I think it must be the high temps at this time of the year. Rob
