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

 

Alex

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!

Regards

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

I just use the zfw from Pfpx, the number of virtual people doesn't really bother me

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.
