Search for New Cathay PMDG in the Avsim File Library and then Order by Date and it'll be the third file down in the list. Actually there's a couple in the list there.

Sorry, I don't know how to paste a link here :-(

Thanks Shug! :) Unfortunately the one I'm looking for is the PMDG 700-200 version... I only see the 777-300 version.

PMDG did not release a 777-200

Cathay only operate 5 -200 variants and I don't think any of them are in the new livery yet.

 

Why don't you want the -300 in the new livery. Alex Farmer has done two great repaints for these. Search for 'Goldstar Cathay' in the Avsim library. There are no -200 repaints in the new scheme

Because there are no pfpx/topcat profiles for the 300 variant, thats why.

 

Use the B777F variant for PFPX and TOPCAT, that is the common solution and works well enough.  If you wish, you can adjust the fuel bias in accordance with the PFPX manual but it's not necessary.

 

I personally prefer the B77W for a couple of reasons, I like to hand fly it for the heavy big plane feel, the GMCS is nifty, it is more of a challenge to balance payload and fuel for the long hauls.  Delta and American both have interesting routes to follow.

I also want to use the 777-300 for the longest time, but properly. So you're saying I can use the B777F profile in pfpx and topcat for the 300 variant? Do they share the same values? I'm sure there's big differences, such as the weight of the plane and size.

Ahhh don't know how I missed that one. I see a PMDG 777-300 profile in PFPX, but still none in Topcat.

I think flyprecisely has some templates/performance files available for download on the aerosoft site. I have cheated and used the -200 derate numbers from topcat- it hasn't failed me "yet" ...

 

We aren't running expensive flight departments here that need aerodata for every runway :)

I believe there never will be a TOPCAT profile for the 300. Learn to use the 777F in TOPCAT. Development on TOPCAT has stopped. I don't know what the MTOW for the 300 is, but for the 777F it is 766800 pounds. That should cover the 300. Don't worry about the W & B page, just concern yourself with the takeoff and landings pages.
