Title: *Update 25 March 19* PFPX Files & Aircraft Model Files for PSX
Post by: G-CIVA on Thu, 26 Jul 2018 12:32
25 Mar 19

British Airways Fuel Policies updated. British Airways CIRRUS OFP format updated.

All PSX Model Type Files now available to download.

Formerly available here:

http://aerowinx.com/board/index.php?topic=4831.0

All GE Aircraft Type Files - v1.5

All PW Aircraft Type Files -v1.5

All RR Aircraft Type Files - v1.5

If you are interested you can email me & I will send you a link to all these the Dropbox files.

With Hardy now looking toward the implementation of a PSX based & flight planning software linked solution to the PSX world wide Upper Winds & Wind Uplink issue I am in a position to make available a pretty varied selection of my own personal PFPX B744 FlightPlan Templates, Aircraft Performance Files, Aircraft Fleets & Airline Fuel Policies, they are not available on the Aerosoft Support Forum.

AirBridgeCargo OFP Template, ABW B744F/ERF fleet

Asiana OFP Template, Asiana B744/F Fleet

BAW CIRRUS OFP Template, BAW B744 Fleet & Fuel Policies

Cathay Pacific OFP Template, CPA B744ERF Fleet & Fuel Policy

Cargolux OFP Template, CLX B744F Fleet

China Airlines OFP Template, CAL B744/F Fleet

El Al Airlines OFP Template, ELY B744/F Fleet

Lufthansa OFP Template, DLH B744 Fleet

GTI/PAC OFP Template, B744 FLEET

Kallitta OFP Template, CKS B744F Fleet

KLM OFP Template, KLM B744/F Fleet

Korean Airlines OFP Template, KAL B744/F Fleet

Martinair OFP Template, Martinair Fleet.

Singapore Airlines Cargo OFP Template, SQC B744F Fleet, SQC B744F Fuel Policy

UPS OFP Template, UPS B744 Fleet

Qantas Airlines OFP Templates, QFA B744/ER Fleet & Fuel Policies

Virgin Atlantic OFP Template, VIR B744F Fleet

These templates are only really suitable for 4 engine aircraft & will not work correctly with twin engine aircraft.

In light of this variety, I must ask again: Would you consider the UPS, Cirrus, Lido, and Asiana formats the most popular ones?

Hardy,

Dont get confused about the wind data output ... PFPX can only create the formats I have shown you - Huey Louie & Dewie.

They get inserted into whichever template I write DLH, ABW, VIR SQC etc .... all of the above list contain either Huey Louie or Dewie.

There are some OFPs out in the real world don't have wind data blocks, the wind data is loaded in real life via data link - imagine that!  DLH is one of them ... I have added a Huey Louie or Dewie to that template to make it easier for the virtual pilot.

Remember I showed you with a series of screen shots that the PFPX user can switch between formats to display Huey Louie or Dewie (so the wind data can be copied as a txt file) before the user commits to choosing the OFP format, filing, releasing & printing the flight plan.

Post by: Hardy Heinlin on Thu, 26 Jul 2018 13:01
I see. Thanks.

Meanwhile we have four aloft formats, not three, right? (The Simbrief sample is just another Cirrus.) I guess the fourth one is then Uncle Donald.
Title: Re: PFPX FlightPlan - Templates for PSX An Offer You Might Not Be Able To Refuse
Post by: G-CIVA on Thu, 26 Jul 2018 13:06
Uncle Donald - yes!

I have just discovered a further format amongst the array of PFPX syntax .... its a very basic one ... it does appear in some default PFPX OFP templates that come shipped with the product ... it might be safer to include it .... can I post it as code in the original thread?

Apologies for missing it ... I dont normally use the format - hence the reason I missed it.

Its now posted in the original thread.

Gentlemen,

Thanks for the comments.

Today I have updated some of the OFP Templates, the changes are mainly cosmetic.  I have also updated all of the aircraft type files (11 in all)

What you need to do if you have contacted me & have downloaded these files

Firstly ensure that PFPX has been shut down on your computer.

1. Navigate to the Dropbox Folder called PFPX Files for PSX, find the subfolder inside named 'Aircraft Types', open it & copy the 15 files inside.

On you computer that has PFPX installed find the folder where PFPX is installed - normally:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data

Inside find the folder named 'Aircraft Types' & paste in the 15 aircraft type files there overwriting as required.

2. Navigate to the Dropbox Folder called PFPX Files for PSX, find the subfolder inside named 'Flightplan Templates - do not overwrite', open it & copy the 15 files inside.

On you computer that has PFPX installed find the folder where PFPX is installed - normally:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data

Inside find the folder named 'Flightplan Templates' & copy the 15 flightplan template files there overwriting as required.

After this you can start up PFPX & everything should be good.

Enjoy!

Hi Steve,

Just one question: In the folders 'Aircaft Types' and 'Flightplan Templates' are 15 files each, is this o.k.?

thanks for the quick reply and the numerous profiles for PFPX.

Finally I'll be able to use PFPX and not just chuck in 10 tons of fuel as 'contingency'. ;)

Post by: Dirk Schepmann on Mon, 20 Aug 2018 23:09
I have a question regarding the Cirrus OFP format.

Usually, in most of the flight plan formats you’ll find a column containing the estimated fuel onboard at each waypoint (so you can easily compare the actual fuel onboad with the calculated figure at each waypoint passage).

In the Cirrus format, it‘s different - the OFP just gives the amount of fuel required for each waypoint. That means that one has to add the sum of contigency and reserve fuel to the value?

Is there a reason for this? I find it a bit unsual but maybe that’s just because I‘m used to the other OFPs.

Best regards,
Dirk

Gentlemen,

Today I have updated ALL of the OFP Templates, the changes are mainly cosmetic but ensure that the heading text for the flight plan log fields propagate to all pages containing flight plan log information. 

I have also included a Qantas Airlines B744/ER OFP Template (thanks to Rudy Fidado for allowing me to use some of his work).  Some of the Qantas flight plan fields are beyond the scope of PFPX as its currently stands but it is still a very fair representation of the real deal.  I have also included an El Al OFP Template (thanks to Doug Snow for allowing me to use some of his work).

I have also updated four of the aircraft - the El Al registrations 4X-ELA, 4X-ELB, 4X-ELC & 4X-ELD in order that these will work correctly with the El Al OFP template.

What you need to do if you have contacted me & have downloaded these files

Firstly ensure that PFPX has been shut down on your computer.

1. Navigate to the Dropbox Folder called PFPX Files for PSX, find the subfolder inside named 'Aircraft ', open it & copy the 4 files inside named 4X-ELA, 4X-ELB, 4X-ELC & 4X-ELD.

On you computer that has PFPX installed find the folder where PFPX is installed - normally:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data

Inside find the folder named 'Aircraft' & paste in the 4 aircraft files there overwriting as required.

2. Navigate to the Dropbox Folder called PFPX Files for PSX, find the subfolder inside named 'Flightplan Templates - do not overwrite', open it & copy the 17 files inside.

On you computer that has PFPX installed find the folder where PFPX is installed - normally:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data

Inside find the folder named 'Flightplan Templates' & copy the 17 flight plan template files there overwriting as required.

After this you can start up PFPX & everything should be good.
