PMDG 777: Load factors/Passenger No. / CG

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

  • I was wondering why the passenger totals in the FMC add up to around 230 in the FMC. When the typical 3 class configuration of the  777-200's is 315, 2 class = 400 etc. etc.
  • By entering a ZFW into the fmc total, it always gives me the same CG. Is it possible for a future update to alter this so we get slightly different values each time [how are you guys loading her]

 

Cheers

Hi Alex,

The way I am loading her is - I guess - unique  :smile:

Ready...?

I generate a random number between 165 and 195 and that's my ZFW that I punch into the payload!

I'm using PFPX. Hit the "random" payload. and type that number into the 777.

But PFPX has the same load figures as the pmdg, in the low 200's for payload

Good quesion, I wondered exactly the same when I tried the "MAX" option in the payload section.

Any reply to the passenger number question?

I don't really care about number of passengers I just want the ZFW to enter into the FMC.  But usually I just fly cargo anyway so it doesn't matter.
