Update 30 Aug 21

All PFPX PW Engined Aircraft Files updated to reflect PW Aircraft Type Files -v1.8

All GE Aircraft Type Files - v1.7

All PW Aircraft Type Files -v1.8

All RR Aircraft Type Files - v1.7

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

I have made some further background performance "tweaks & changes" to the PW Aircraft Type Files - now version 1.8.

I have been unable to track down any reliable Cost Index data for the PW engines.  The FPPPM Data for the PW 4056 & 4062 engines only contains cruise tables for Long Range Cruise (LRC), M.85 & M.86. I have updated the PW Aircraft Type Files to v1.8.  In comparison the 'generic' PFPX PW engine performance data tables are somewhat 'wide of the mark'!

Therefore flight planning within PFPX with the PW engine variants using my model files can only be conducted with LRC, M.85 & M.86 cruise options.

The accuracy of the data is, however, 100% correct.

Aircraft continue to be retired but will always be available in the 'Historic Fleets Folder'. I have also added a few aircraft files into the PFPX fleet.

AirBridgeCargo OFP Template, ABW B744F/ERF Fleet NG FMC

Asiana OFP Template, AAR B744/F Fleet NG FMC where applicable

British Airways CIRRUS OFP Template, Fuel Policy

Cathay Pacific Cargo OFP Template, CPA B744F/ERF Fleet & Fuel Policy NG FMC

Cargolux OFP Template, CLX B744F Fleet NG FMC

China Airlines OFP Template, CAL B744F Fleet TCAS Range Ring update & NG FMC

Lufthansa OFP Template

Atlas Air Cargo/Polar Air Cargo OFP Template, GTI/PAC B744/F Fleets NG FMC

Kalitta Air OFP Template, CKS B744F Fleet NG FMC

KLM OFP Template, KLM B744F Fleet

Korean Airlines OFP Template, KAL B744/F Fleet

Martinair Cargo OFP Template, MPH B744F Fleet.

Singapore Airlines Cargo OFP Template, SIA B744F Fleet, SIA B744F Fuel Policy NG FMC

United Parcel Service OFP Template, UPS B744F Fleet NG FMC

Qantas Airlines OFP Templates, Fleet & Fuel Policies

Virgin Atlantic Airways OFP Template

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

If any PSX user has solid evidence that KAL has upgraded their remaining airframes to NG FMS equipment please PM me.

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

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.

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.

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.
