GE90-110B1 or GE90-115B engines? Which one will we get with our PMDG 777LR?

Recommended Posts

Do not worry - the airplane is ridiculously overpowered with the 110Bs already.

First thing am doing is going completely empty, no pax or cargo, full thrust = WINNING.

Sounds like a plan! we should see who can get it into and out of the shortest runway lol

Ethiopian probably chose the 115's because their base is at 7k ft. When they fly to DC they have to stop in Rome because they can't fill her up taking off from that elevation. Watched the Just Planes 777 bluray :)

(before anyone starts complaining, our 110k modelling on the 200LR and F has the TO-B option that effectively makes it like a 115k for takeoff.)

 

Nice. Thanks Ryan

That's very difficult to control lol. You have to watch the tailstrike and flap overspeed risks really carefully, you'll shoot through your V2 and the flap speeds almost before you leave the ground. 40+ degree deck angle to stop it from accelerating etc.

Ha yeah, a friend was telling me about a position flight he did in an empty 77F - an extraordinary amount of power  :lol: however, what Mr Boeing doesn't know won't kill him  B)

ITo a degree. I just think it would be a shame not to have the world's largest, most powerful engine missing from the world's greatest, most advanced simulation of the world's second greatest aircraft.

and what aircraft would that be?

 

Why the MD-11 of course!!!

 

Luke please don't crash your shiny new 777 on the VERY FIRST FLIGHT lol.

Don't worry, I'm only planning to going FL350 and seeing how she recovers from a stall!  :P

Only FL350 you should take her all the way up to 43,100 FT HA . :P

I'll be more interested to see how it performs with its max takeoff weight.

Wouldn't know that either, most of my NG flights are close to MTOW lol

Try Saba island. The runway is something like 1300'. Of course, a TO-B to 200000 lbs might be needed. :P

I should change my sig to 'B77W/GE90-115BL' or 'B77L/GE90-110B1' then, since that's what we'll be flying.

They're not different engines - this is the same idea as with all the different CFM56-7B ratings on the NG. It's the exact same engine and the customer just pays more for an EEC software unlock that gives it the 115k rating. We've modeled the 110k for the base pack and the 115k will come with the 300ER. (before anyone starts complaining, our 110k modelling on the 200LR and F has the TO-B option that effectively makes it like a 115k for takeoff.) The 110B is the standard engine on both the 200LR and the F - only a handful of operators (Ethiopian is the only I'm actually aware of) have gone with the 115B option. Do not worry - the airplane is ridiculously overpowered with the 110Bs already.

 

Thanks for your reply! And i thought that older B777-200LR has the 110B and new ordered B777-200LR are suited with the 115B engine. So, if i would order a real B777-200LR, could i choose the -110B or are all newer B777-200LR suited with 115B?

THE LR is still sold with the 110B1 as standard. Getting the 115B rating, is an optional and rather expensive extra.

Nope, the one we surveyed was basically brand new and it had 110Bs.

Will there also be options to have the RR Trent 800 engines as well? Even though I think the GE's look a lot sexier, but the Trent 800's sound amazing!

No, the 200LR, 777F and 300ER are only offered with GE90s in real life. If we do the 200ERs eventually that will be when you get the RR and PW engines.
