Md-11: Saving A Default Flight

Recommended Posts

I wonder if it's a problem or not to setup a flight the way I like it with the MD-11 in a certain state, and save it as the default flight. Or is it better (for the systems) to have another plane as default and load the MD-11 everytime? And another thing: if I do save a default flight with the MD-11 after using the load manager (setting it to full pax for instance) and loading specific panel state, I suppose that full pax will be default too, just like the panel state, and I don't have to run the load manager everytime and load the specific state everytime?I remember some planes from various companies having problems if you didn't load them the exact way you were told to, otherwise some settings would be messed up. The MD-11 manual says nothing about this all, so I suppose I can do whatever I want, but I just like to be sure.

Jeroen: I've saved many MD11 flights, but always either at the end of the runway at the start point with engines running or on the ramp with engines stopped and either cold/dark or on ground power. The panel state is saved with the flight so when you reload it every switch should be in the same position as when you saved it. The FMS ground connections and doors are also saved with each flight. Not sure about fuel and payload.I have not, and will probably never save a flight that is in progress. Just not my preference.I'm not sure if the payloads/fuel/cg data is saved or not. Since each flight is unique, I will go through the fuel planning anew each time due to different route/wx/payload.
