Load control on NGX

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all.I've been flying around in the NGX since the release of this addon, and I'm very satisfied and impressed.What I'm missing thought is the pre-flight ops, or load control to be more excact. It's more fun to do the load sheet manualy. :-)What I would like:- a generated report of DOW, D.O.I etc, from the selected configuration, aswell as an empty load sheet.- See/change the load in different compartments (1-4)- See/change the pax distribution in the sections.- Should be able to select different seat layouts. Many airlines use Y186 or Y189.Is there any chance for us to see this in the future of NGX?


Best regards,

We will not be implementing this level of loading control, sorry - it'd be made up anyway, FSX doesn't control weight in that way. What's on the FMC payload page is what we've provided and we think it's sufficient for almost any simmer. We asked during development btw and none of our pilots on the team had ever done a manual W&B on the NG - that's all done in flight ops/dispatch and comes to them done already on the papers or electronically via the datalink.

Hi Geir,Ryan is correct. The W&B and load sheet etc is provided to the flight crew by the ground team. The flight crew simply sign it off after making any adjustments (last minute passengers, jump seaters etc) and even those adjustments are very limited. I am the webmaster for my VA and a lot of my day goes into providing realistic dispatch and load sheet info to the crew so that they don't have to search around for everything. Short of entering in the ZFW and CG%, how that load is achieved is up to the boys on the tarmac (per very airline specific manuals and procedures). It would be very difficult to do realistically as every airline in every country has a different approach.Greg

You dont have the right pilots :) For some places in charter route network, which makes most of my airports flights in the summer, pilots do go out and make manual WB sheets, even if only to check what is supplied is correct.On a sidenote, I found that with some creative placement, you can get FS to represent WB loading pretty well, bar wingtanks, since those move their CoG with filling.

In airlines I work for, manual W&B not authorized anymore. In Flight Ops our load planners provide all required info to the crew. When system is down (it happens), we use 2 back up systems. More manual inputs required but all computations still made by the computers. 21st century.
