Problem with entering GW into the FMC

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

 

 

I am having this problem---what am I doing wrong---I am trying to fly a long flight OMDB to KDFW---I build a plan in PFPX and the get it imported into the T7 no problem but when I get to per init page and try to punch in the Gross weight of about 717.xxx I get an unable message---I chose the weight from the CDU as Long range amount--and copied the fuel GW from the FSX fuel/payload amount shown from the fsx menu

could be that you have a lbs/kg disagreement? so maybe you want to enter amount in lbs but units are set to kg?

 

you can also verify this quickly by pressing the LSK next to GW twice as that will fill the actual GW date based on the PMDG settings
