Passenger Loads - MD-11 or 747

Recommended Posts

This may be a stupid question but how do you know how many passengers are on board after setting the passenger load in Load Manager?I'm only asking as the max fuel load varies for the MD11 at least and with 3 passenger options in the drop down menu.... I'm wondering if it's as I am guessing... whatever passenger seating arrangement is selected... is saved for the next flight.IE if 'mixed' is in the top menu, that is what you get for the next flight!!!Regards John Ellisonp.s. Thanks to ALL at PMDG for making sure the heater boost fan is off in the car before starting the engine though not for making me track the centre line :)

The load manager provides pax count, weight and cargo weight.Once the flight is configured, and saved, I believe the only important information is the weight and balance.. not sure why a different seating arrangement would make a difference to the simulation as long as the weights and moments were the same.There is that interesting critter on the air panel (pax only not cargo) for nbr pax... it is there for authenticity. I don't believe it does anything except give the sim pilot something to twiddle with; although, in the real thing it trims cabin refresh rates (I believe).
