Flight Planners?

Recommended Posts

Paul, I am away from my sim PC for a few days so I cannot verify, but I am a Simbrief user and on the flight plan export/download menu, it says "PMDG flight plans", not any plane (737NG or 777) in particular and consequently the FP can be used by any PMDG plane since the format is the same for all PMDG planes. You do have a way to segregate FP for individual PMDG aircraft if you wish, or dump all of them in the same "Generic" folder as you like but this is another matter that has nothing to do with format.

Another PFPX user, great program. Also using the default 747 profile which is pretty accurate for me.

SimBrief shows PMDG  flight plan downloads as an .rte so would those still work with the 747?

yes...

I also use PFPX. I save the flight plan and use it throughout the flight. I usually make a column to the right of each waypoint line, and put the FMC fuel remaining predictions there. I then compare those figures with the PFPX predictions for each waypoint. Sometimes they're very close, but other times there's a fairly big difference in the estimates. I also check the actual wind with the PFPX predictions at each waypoint to see if there's a significant difference. All in all though, PFPX does a good job for me.

For me there is only one and that is AivlaSoft EFB - it uses RouteFinder and then export to any aircraft you desire. Not only is EFB an incredible tool for following a flight but the detail display of SIDs and STARs as well as ILS approaches makes it by far the best tool available. I run it over a network on a second computer and it works like a charm.

SimBrief works perfectly with PMDG....flawless, never issues and easy and accurate.......

 

I hope to have an official answer to this so I can buy this plane.

I find the current profiles already included in PFPX to be pretty accurate. I was then wondering how to plan for the new variants (BCF, D, M, ER, ERF) but the link someone posted earlier in the thread solves that (though some slight tweaking of the weights in those profiles is necessary).

PFPX - does it export the complete flight plan into the fmc, or do I still have to add all the sids and stars and waypoints manually?

Yes you need to add the SIDs and STARS

PFPX works fine, however small weight adjustments are necessary. I would like to know what pmdg takes as passenger weight + baggage.

 You don't need that. You have a very simple way to calculate the necessary fuel to the trip.

Enter the number of passengers you want, and cargo (if you want to), after that, enter your ZFW value in the PFPX ZFW field. (don't need anymore than this). It's accurate and simple

simbrief works perfectly with the 777, so I can't see any reason why the 747 should be any different
