I'd like to see user-created information like this put into a wiki article at the PMDG Ops section.

Very cool, thanks. BTW, why don't you just upload the spreadsheet to the AVSIM library with a legal-readme that indicates where/how the data was produced?Also, assuming the integers represent the flex take-off temps in degrees C, I was under the impression from other PMDG forum threads that the MD doesn't use anything above 55 degrees. Can you describe your experience at these higher derates?

Thanks Bryan!,this keep us playing with derates until TOPCAT feature for the md-11.No more powerfull take-off or "random" derates in order to make rocket take-offs.In the meantime using those tables and looking for the elevation field tables.Keep up the good work.Alex.

Hi BryanWill you be doing one for the PW engines also?
Hi Nathan,I have feared that question ever since I started this project; sooner or later someone was going to ask for a P&W versionThe intention was there

Hi Bryan,great job buddy, I can't see the new link over at the library but I use UTOPIA for LevelD and it's wonderful. Would you send me the sheet please?lo.sc@libero.itThanks a lot.

PW4460 delivers 60000lbs. However you don't have to do it on my account, just was curious thats all. I am pretty sure i can get by with the GE charts.Thanks for the work you put into these charts for all of us MD-11 users!

I received some emails about the FLEX temperatures for flaps 28 (deflected ailerons option).

Flew VIDP - VABB - OMDB last night using Utopia and your Flex data... Didn't leave a burning hole at the end of the runway at Delhi so all good :( Been using TOPCAT for a long time and of course it's an amazing program for the price, but Utopia is a neat little bit of softwareCheersRob

Excellent stuff, and thank you for making this available... any ideas on the corrections required for non-isa conditions? :DHowever, just to make a small point here...FLEX is not the same as de-rating...Assumed temperature settings do not affect the maximum thrust of an engine (you are just "tricking the engine", which can still deliver its max. thrust if needed), whereas de-rating does... De-rating would be shifting the output of the 62K variant to 60K for example...De-rating is not expressed in temperature values... the max. FLEX temp the MD-11 accepts is 70

Sorry slight drift but.. I'm comfortable flying the MD11 now and have trawled through the docs many times but something still puzzles me. In the 744 if (in theory) I screwed up my assumed temp calculations I can push TOGA a second time to cancel the temps/derates, same for a Go around, one push for standard thrust and a second push for max thrust. Is this available on the MD without using overboost?CheersRob
