Captain sim 757 load and cg calcs

Recommended Posts

Hi,unfortunately the captain sim 757 isn't blessed with a load calculator that tells you the the ZFW, gross weight or cg, (or at least I don't think it does)based on this how do you work out the vital load information to key into the fmc to ensure a safe flight etc. I have to say I generally jus fudge the info but this is bad and rather boring too. Any info would be great.Thankstom

Look again. The ACE can be found under 'Captain Sim' on the Start menu.
I've used the ace but I didn't think it gave you the specific values for zfw and cg, etc to allow you to program the fmc.In comparison to the pmdg and leveld load managers that give you a break down of the information

The FMC defaults to 27% with an up trim of 5.75. This probably will not reflect your actual CG and may result in an alarming takeoff and initial climb. So you will need to use the aircraft payload diagram on the Fuel / Payload page of FSX. Count the ticks from the top to where the CG marker sits, divide that number by 32 (total number of ticks on the diagram) and multiply the result by 100. This will give you your true CG, and the number to replace the default 27% in the FMC.
