  1. I have been struggling with this for a while now. I've done many searches here in the PMDG forums as well as out on the web, but haven't found a solution yet. I am trying to operate a flight on -900WL NGX variant (PMDG United N75410) but cannot load a ZFW above 136.x, when I should be able to go as high as ~149.2. I use PFPX for my flight planning and it shows I should be setting my ZFW at 143.1. Whenever I try to add that value, I get the "Invalid Entry" message on the CDU. My NGX "Weight Units" in P3Dv4 are set to LBS and PFPX is set the same. The CDU will not accept a ZFW above 136.x with any of my installed -900WL variants, but all the other (-600, -700, and -800) variants work just fine. I've searched PFPX, ZFW, PMDG, -900WL, Invalid Entry, in all manner of combinations to no avail. What am I missing? It's probably something obvious, right in front of my eyes, but, for the life of me, I can't see it. Thanks for your time. Edit: This is a brand new home-built PC (see sig) and a brand new install of P3Dv4. So everything is vanilla at this stage.
  2. Hello all, I'm having some issues with PFPX V1.27 & V1.28. I'm trying to do a plan flight in the PMDG 777-300ER from LSZH to KLAX. When I hit compute flight it comes up with an error saying "Fuel required exceeds maximum fuel on board (145,538kg) limited by Tank Capacity." I was just wondering if anybody knew where I am going wrong? I've looked through the PFPX forums but can't put my finger on it. Many thanks, Jonathan
  3. I have uploaded a PFPX file for the Premier 1A I have created, with data obtained from the POH. You can download it from Aerosoft's PFPX suport forum: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/4693-beech-390-premier-1a/ Feel free to try it out and report any issues here. Enjoy! David
  4. Hi folks, I'm getting odd behavior (at least I think it's odd) when planning a flight in the 747-400 from CYVR to RCTP. It's happening in PFPX (using the default 747 profiles as well as the FlyPrecisely profiles) and SimBrief, which is what's making me curious...I don't think it can be attributed to a bug in a particular flight planning tool. In any case, when I plan my flight out of Vancouver, both flight planning tools give me an initial altitude of 16,000 feet. Then after a very short while, they plan a climb up to what I'd expect the initial cruise to be, to FL300 or FL320. I can use FL300 as my initial altitude when setting up the FMC and the 747 climbs to it just fine, of course. I just don't recall ever seeing a similar low cruise for a very brief time when planning flights. The route I'm using is pulled from a recent China Airlines Flight 31: YVR.V317.TREEL..QQ..NUDGE..51N140W.52N150W.51N160W.51N170W..ADK.R451.OGDEN.R580.ONEMU..NANNO..ALICE.Y111.MQE.Y124.GTC.Y45.KMC.Y382.WAKIT.Y282.POPPY.Y34.SUKMO.Y50.IGMON.A1.DRAKE.DR1B ZFW is 225,000kg and the release fuel load ends up being between 135-145kkg depending on the tool/profile I use, but in all cases the initial cruise is 16,000 feet. PFPX gives me a climb to FL320 at TREEL, and SimBrief gives me a climb to FL300 at QQ. Both of which are mere minutes after reaching the initial 16,000 cruise. The subsequent step climbs from both tools are then 2,000 feet at a time spaced out over several hours between each climb, as I'd expect. So my question is, does anyone know what the explanation for the initial 16,000 feet segment is? Is there some operational consideration that the tools are taking into account that I'm not aware of? Airspace restrictions that the tools are somehow taking into account?
  5. Is there any way to import a flight plan into the Majestic Q8-400 Dash? I asked in their Forum and got a reply that I have to more or less suit there, spend more than half an hour just inputting every waypoint into the FPL on the FMS, never mind time spent on the other FMS parameters required. . What? What a bind. Every other developer makes it easy to impost flight plans, e.g. from PFPX, Rout Finder, etc. So, any tips,hints, guides how the Q8-400 owners do it? Thanks.
  6. Can anyone kindly talk me through how I can import flightplans into the FMC from PFPX.Or where is a PFPX-created flightplan exported to i.e. which path?
