PFPX, TopCat, 737 ngx

Recommended Posts

First of all not sure if this is the right place to be posting this!

 

Does anyone here use PFPX, Topcat and 737 ngx? What My problem is the ZFW is different to the one in the 737 800 WL single class FMC - PFPX ZFW 42991

737 ZFW 41400

 

I have configured those two plans together by only using adults set to 79kg!

Did you pick single class for the ngx otherwise the number of pax isn't the same. Also you can edit values in pfpx and topcat to match your specific aircraft. There is also another good thread on how to get these all in sync onhere just search ngx Topcat and pfpx to find it.

Not what you want but what I do is match my load in the FMC to what is on the PFPX flight plan. (I do not export it).

Hi altstiff got it all matching :) what i done is gone into PFPX file data changed the txt to match that of the FMC! You should try that and then do the same for TOPCAT you may have to change the passenger default weight and baggage weight i've got it at pax 78kg baggage 1 kg

Here's another question:

 

This is a question for those who use PFPX and the PMDG planes. Recently I switched to PFPX for my flight planing, and I really like it. Coupled with TopCat, it really plans the flight using not just the routing but everything else in between. And then it exports the plan to my PMDG aircraft.  But right now, I'm a bit confused about how to use this application with the 737/777.  If I run PFPX first, and use it to populate the pax, cargo and fuel, then I have to go into the FMS and manually change the data there.

 

OR - should I launch FSX and the aircraft, create the load figures (fuel, pax, etc.) and then go to PFPX and enter that data manually?  PFPX doesn't differentiate classes or types of pax, PMDG does. So I'm asking if anyone up here has a preference with this stuff. Would it be better to build my load on PMDG and then carry it over to PFPX, or create the figures in PFPX (i.e. random) and then manually enter them in PMDG?

 

I'm going to post this to the PMDG forum, also.
