  1. Hi. Help to search a profile PFPX for "Learjet 35A".
  2. Hello, I just purchased PFPX and have been trying to build a simple plan from KJFK to KMIA and no matter what I do, I keep getting this error when validating the flight ®ROUTE152 FLIGHT NOT APPLICABLE TO IFPS What am I doing wrong?.. This is happening with every single flight plan that I have tried to create... also, how do I export to PMDG? Any help will be appreciated Thank you
  3. 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: https://youtu.be/6oDkdJldo54 Anyone had the same problem? Any idea how to solve it?
  4. Hi, I was wondering if there is a PFPX profile available for the Hawker H850XP? Thanks! Andreas
  5. 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.
  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. 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
  8. I just purchased the -8i expansion pack and am looking to plan a flight for it. The problem is, I can't seem to find a 747-8i template on PFPX. Even worse, when I try to create a template for the -8i using the -400 preset, I can't edit the MTOW to 987000 without it automatically reverting to the -400 MTOW of 875000 lbs. Can someone help me with this? Thank you in advance.
  9. 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
  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. 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
