  1. Dan I have no problem with fuel and payload for the flight but TOPCAT indicates no takeoff. Must be the 5000 + foot altitude of FAOR.
  2. Do you think the FAA created SIDS and STARS just for laughs? SIDS and STARS are part of almost all flight plans that appear on FlightAware. They should be used unless your are vectored by ATC off of the SID or STAR. Learn to use them!
  3. Does this aircraft work correctly? I would imagine the LR need to work correctly for the 300 to be installed.
  4. To avoid losing your liveries and settings made thru PMDG Setup in the CDU do this. Prior to uninstalling the version that is on your computer run the PMDG Operations Center. After you have installed the version that you downloaded run the OC again. It will tell you that liveries need to be repaired. Select the repair option and press OK.
  5. FSX 744F GE. Flight from KSKA ( Fairchild AFB) to RKSO (Osan AFB) using B343 as fuel policy and auto re-dispatch per PFPX. Re-dispatch airport was RJCW which is the northern most airport in Japan. Release fuel was 248980 lbs. Once I completed this flight I ran PFPX again using same route but U. S. Flag Jet fuel policy. Obviouly the weather was different. First flight had an average TL wind of 11 knots and second plan had an average HD wind of 1 knot. Release fuel was 283507. B343 plus auto-redispatch saved 34527 lbs of fuel being carried.
  6. See this link for information on B343 from the PFPX forum - http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/79734-class-iib343b043-flight-planning-guidance/.
  7. Reduce your payload by about 10000 to 15000 lbs. I have done FAOR-KATL several times using U.S. Flag Jet Fuel Policy several times and this is what I have done.
  8. Leave the aircraft cfg file alone. Correct or incorrect the 777F works fine. Start changing the cfg file and it may never fly again. If you are having an issue submit a ticket to PMDG Support at - http://support.precisionmanuals.com.
  9. These three aircraft are absolutely the filthiest I have ever seen. Never been washed since picked up from Boeing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/7idv2t4unn06e8v/PMDG_737NGX_800WL_AAL_bySLT.ptp?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/w5cvifzcntwel5p/PMDG_737NGX_800WL_UAL_bySLT.ptp?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ys827lgfv2pt3b/PMDG_737NGX_900WL_UAL_bySLT.ptp?dl=0
  10. Use 65. Total of above cost indexes is 445 divided by 7 equal 63.57.
  11. I do not have the 77W. It is so inconsistent as to when the compact engine display is produced on the EICAS, it is impossible to name specific liveries. For example a flight using Aerologic might work fine. The next flight using Aerologic I can not produce a compact engine display using the correct procedure. If switch and buttons are pressed In a random sequence, the compact engine display might appear or it might never appear no matter what buttons are pressed. I am done with this problem. I will use the full display from now on.
  12. I don't believe it is. I used the compact engines display on all 777 prior to the recent updates. There is no option that must be enabled in PMDG Setup.
  13. Thanks for the information. Strange as it may seem, I am able to get the compact EICAS display to work with some liveries and not with others.
  14. For FSX. Since the recent updates I don't believe the compact engine display on the EICAS will work. It use to be INBOARD DSPL switch to EICAS, press L INBD and ENG button located on the DSP, and switch INBOARD DSPLY to NAV. Can someone confirm this please. If there is a new sequence, can someone detail it please.
  15. When you save a flight use the FSX Menu Bar. Click on Flights, click on Save, type the Flight Title in the box at the top of the Flight Save screen, click OK. The flight is now saved. Don't be concerned with the files that were save of which there are six or seven. When you want to use the saved flight do it using the Free Flight screen. Click on Load, highlight the Flight Title, click Fly Now. Make sure FSX has been closed and restarted before attempting to load and fly a saved flight. Leave the FMC alone. That is it.
