Request: a bi-directional load manager for the MD11/747X

Recommended Posts

Hello PMDG,This post is in reference to the MD-11. Without any information to go on in terms of flight/fuel planning, I am using the MCDU/FMC to assist in my fuel planning (I just love the FS Actions Menu!). What I'd like to see is a feature where the load manager can reflect the current loadout (cargo and fuel) in the aircraft. When I change my fuel via my trial-and-error planning, the ZFWCG and TOCG become incorrect and I get a warning to set these values to reflect my new fuel setting. If I were able to use the load manager to "read" the state of the aircraft, I would be able to make these adjustments.I realize that this is a kludge of sorts, but it seems to be the best bet in lieu of performance data for fuel/trip planning. Even if/when we get the performance data, it would still be handy to implement the feature I am describing.Thank you,
