    Flight Plan Fuel and FlightLevels

    Well, the numbers are directly from the table in the cruise and flightplanning manual.And as I understand it, they assume step climb to the given flight level (the x-axis).But I understand your answer as kind of a confirmation, that this is unexpected behaviour :-) Clemens Kuehn
  2. Hi all,as I understand the Cruise and Flight Planning manual, I go with the planned amximum cruise altitude and expect to step climb to that FL.Well doing this for - say - an 4500 NM trip dependent on Planned Landing Weight gives the fuel amounts as depicted in the graph below. It shows, that you should fly FL 370 for PLW of 410 klbs while for PLW of 510 klbs you should proceed to 410 - if you can (did not check that) but for PLW higher that 520 klbs you should best remain on FL 310 (or even below) for the whole flight.That sounds strange to me and I wonder, what I may have missed.Thanks for any advice!http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/184491.jpg

    Rushing into TNCM

    Hi Captains,I feel it's about time to honor this awesome bird PMDG gave us. I hardly fly anything else and whenever I do, I cannot wait to get back into my 747.Recently I found some cool photographs from this beach and I made one of my best VFR approaches ever in a B747. Maybe you enjoy some of the screenshots as I do myself.In order to say thank you, I decided to share some screenshots.If you search for TNCM on the net you will find the "originals". May even be worth a trip!Thanks for the bird and save landings!Clemens Kuehnhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/183445.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/183446.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/183448.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/183447.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/183449.jpgflying a MacBookPro WinXP, 2.16 GHz Intel Core duo, 1GB RAM
