Well as you know it simply depends. V speeds might be slightly under 100 knots under extreme conditions. Given the fact the iFly models everything correct you'd see the same numbers as on the NGX under same conditions..... Big%20Grin.gifsig.gif

Hello,I was getting low V1, V2 and Vref for landing because I was entering the ZFW (zero fuel weight) in Kgs in the FMC/CDU instead of pounds. In the FMC/CDU PMDG options (I think Display) you can change to Kgs or if you prefer enter your ZFW in pounds. By default the plane use pounds.Adenilson

Gents- You can go into the PERFORMANCE section of the manual and manually calculate them. If you do it correctly, you'll wind up with the same number the FMS gives you. (Like how I did that? If your number comes out wrong it is human failure? )
