747F Cargo stations/Topcat

3 posts in this topic

Good afternoon, I am finally preparing for my first 747F flight. After I planned my flight through PFPX and had the weight and balance settings set in Topcat, I entered the FMC to manually set the payload data and ran into a dilemma; the QOTSII FMC has 5 assigns cargo stations, Topcat has just 2. How do I correctly set my payload?

Just use the gross weight provided by PMDG to get your Thrust and Speed settings in TOPCAT.  Then use the PMDG CG setting in the CDU to find your Trim setting.  TOPCAT isn't complete enough to receive the input of CG as far as I've seen so don't bother with what zones have what.

In 747 FMC, in payload page enter ZFW value which is calculated by PFPX
