Weight and Balance

Recommended Posts

Hey all B77W Drivers out there.  I am looking for a W&B tool for the B77W.  What does every one use since TOPCAT only has B77L.  I wish there was a way to add a B77w CG profile to TOPCAT.

Please help..I really want to start flying this bird!

I use TOPER for the 77W, but it is not for weight and balance..., but not even TOPCAT does that for the PMDG aircraft.  You cannot "load" the PMDG aircraft with any third party software, it must be done via the FMC so we usually just calculate the take off at a certain TOGW and enter the corresponding ZFW in the FMS.

 

Used TOPCAT for years for the 77W by selecting the 77L freighter and it was in the ball park. Not sure TOPER provides all the nice things like obstacle clearance and engine out performance that TOPCAT does.

Ha seriously? They don't even have the 77W on that thing? I've beat myself up for months on whether to jump for it and after learning this I feel zero remorse. Wow.
