  1. 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: Feel free to try it out and report any issues here. Enjoy! David
  2. 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?
  3. Since submitting a ticket did not resolve this issue, I am reaching out to the swarm for possible clues on this one: So I have downloaded the newest installers for the 77L and 77WL, uninstalled, reinstalled (as was advertised by the devs in preparation for micro-updates) and now suffer major problems with the OC and the 777 product. 1) The OC can not repair the liveries for the 77L I had installed because it is unable to "load the back-up file". 2) The 77W is missing from the OC and the sim entirely, despite installing properly and without error messages. 3) The install somehow messes up my Visual Studio C++ runtimes, as PFPX starts to randomly crash and bug out (like not being able to add aircraft into the database). This is usually resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling the Visual Studio 2015 C++ runtimes, both x86 and x64. It still does not fix my grievances with the 777 though, as I am unable to use either variant as before. I could delete everything PMDG-related from the sim folders, but am reluctant because of the accumulated hours on different airframes and not wanting to mess up things further. In addition to my hardware specs, I am running Windows 10 Pro x64, my sim is not on the system partition and I always run everything FSX related on the Administrator account. At this point I would love to downgrade my OC and revert to the old installers, as these worked without a hitch.
  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. PFPX Issue

    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
  6. Hello, I have put in a few flights on the 747 now, and I have never got the winds uplink to work. I've seen this thread on the issue but it does not solve my issue. I'll describe everything that I do to get the data to upload. I create the flight plan in PFPX and export it. I then load the flight plan into the 747 by using the request route feature. After I load up the route, I get the message saying "WIND UPLINK READY". I make sure that the weather file is located in the P3D/PMDG/WX folder. I also make sure that the flight plan is loaded into ASN. Then, I finish off all of the performance issues and then go to the VNAV DES Forecast page and on the bottom left I see (>SENDSENT), but no data actually appears on the page. I never get a prompt to import the data. The page stays blank the whole time with with the (>SENDSENT) near LSK 6L. I've never had a problem importing the wind data into the 777 (in FSX) however. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks,
  7. Hold Weights

    Iv tried every combination of Hold, Cargo, Cargo Hold, Capacity, Limits, etc but i cant find what the structral floor weights are for the holds are. Any one know what the Max cargo capacity is of a Pax (109) variation?? iv hit MAX on the FMC to load it, but it just takes the load to MZFW, i just wanted to update the PFPX files so its correct... So 3 holds, what max weight can i get in them, and if you have the data what was your source, (iv tried searching the 1600 page (LOL) FCOM but to no avail. Liam
  8. PFPX - T7 profile

    Hello everybody, I have a question regarding the PMDG T7 in PFPX. When creating a profile, there are multiple options: 1 Aux Tank, 3 aux Tanks... How to know which one we have to select? Thanks! Loïc Abbé-Fouillet
  9. PFPX Crashing

    Hi, I have the Bundle PFPX + Topcat, but I'm having a problem. PFPX freezes all the time I try to set the Aircraft Performance File to integrate with Topcat. I made a video to show what's happening: Anyone had the same problem? Any idea how to solve it?
  10. Hi, I just purchased the -300ER expansion for my PMDG 777 using P3D earlier this evening. Works and looks really great. First flight attempt for me is KSFO-NZAA. Basically, I use PFPX + TOPCAT together and figure out my fuel planning, it works great with the -200. I am aware that there is no -300ER extension for TOPCAT, so please let me know if my issue is caused by this. So, for my flight...; I just let PFPX find the route automatically, and then entered a random ZFW as I always do, followed by setting up ETOPS. For the ETOPS, I don't think I am 100% correct but I try to use the lowest ETOPS time possible (I have a couple of them I set up in the menus, 120min,240min,etc) and use the recommended airports until I get coverage over the entire ETOPS portion of my route. This time, I got a message saying I was way overweight... long story short, even with 0 payload, my KSFO-NZAA flight is overweight using my ETOPS setup. I ended up just disabling ETOPS for this flight, and adding a random ZFW. Here were the numbers that PFPX gave me. EMPTY WEIGHT 167,829 PAYLOAD 52,171 ZERO FUEL WEIGHT 220,000 // 237,700 MAX FUEL 126,987 // 145,523 MAX RAMP WEIGHT LIMIT 346,987 // 352,400 MAX TAKE-OFF WEIGHT 346,477 // 352,400 MAX LANDING WEIGHT 240,591 // 251,290 MAX UNDERLOAD 5,413 // LIM RMP So here is my question: How does the real flight do it? According to flight aware, it is currently airborne using a 77W (which is the same as the -300ER as far as I know) and I don't think they can "avoid" ETOPS in real life... My ETOPS planning, after several attempts, still added 40 000 KG of fuel to my flight (which is probably where my mistake is), making me overweight. I thought maybe my PFPX didn't have the right numbers for the -300, but they seem very correct. It had estimated I would arrive in NZAA with about 20k KG of fuel, and my FMC currently indicates I'll be there with 25k KG. I know the TOPCAT part doesn't have the proper numbers, but the fuel planning of PFPX should. Everything matches up with the numbers I found on Wikipedia. I know this is more of a PFPX / planning question than a PMDG777 one, but if anyone more knowledgeable than me, please let me know why I can't even fly the route with 0 payload without being overweight. Thank you very much! Regards,
  11. Learjet 35A & PFPX

    Hi. Help to search a profile PFPX for "Learjet 35A".
  12. Hi all, I am currently flying the Aerosoft's Airbus serie IAE engined aircrafts and for a while now, I have decided to became a more sophisticated flight planner as well. The first thing I've done was to install PFPX and in time I learned quite a lot from it. It gives me pleasure to use it but I cannot use TOPCAT with PFPX, (I did not even buy it) since it doesn't support any Aerosoft aircraft. So I wonder if you have some advices of any alternatives to TOPCAT. Also there is a performance sheet printing feature in the aerosoft's Airbus as well and I cannot be sure if such an add-on is really necessary for realism. I am waiting for your advices. Best regards, Enis
  13. Hi guys, I'm testing some flightplanning with PFPX for Majestic Dash 8 Q400. The problem begin when I want to send data to TOPCAT, there is no template at all. Any idea on how to work around this issue or have you got a TOPCAT template for this great aircraft? Without TOPCAT I have to use manual tables to calculate V speeds. Thanks in advance for your help.
  14. Hi, I was wondering if there is a PFPX profile available for the Hawker H850XP? Thanks! Andreas
