Hi guys!

I have a quick question re the 744... when I put 100% fuel into the tanks, and go back, they've changed to random values so I no longer have enough fuel.

Any ideas?

are you using the load manager or the one in fs? It works a lot better fuel planning wise if you use the load manager that comes with the pmdg 744, i hope this helps!

Hey, yeah load manager is the best or even better is go to the main bar on the top and press PMDG and then options then got o fuel. Doing a fuel change over FS will not work.

BTW do any of you have airline repaints? I really need some, cause I cant dowload from PMDG they blocked their download section? Please Help!

I have airline repaints but no installers so it might be kinda worthless to try haha i bet it will be back on by morning time at least i hope! Im kinda sick of flying with the 744F house livery and the airborn lazer AC.

You've got to change the fuel through the PMDG option on the menu bar within FS9. It's under PMDG / GENERAL / OPTIONS / FUEL. Remember to hit the APPLY NOW button after you set the fuel load or it won't take.

Call me stupid but it took me almost an hour to figure that one out!

Hey Guys -
When u use the PMDG, do u fly with an IFR flightplan or VFR? I have the PMDG 737-800/900, and am not sure how the FMC and the ATC can be in sync.

Sorry. I know, RANDOM Question!

I use IFR to make ATC guide me through the alttitude, although sometimes, I tune to another frequency when I want to let the aircraft decide how fast to climb by using the VNAV autopilot. then when you are about to reach your destination, ATC will guide you down and line you up for a runway. you need to program both the fs flight planner and FMC seperately though.

Can you guys suggest a good program I could perhaps download that helps to calculate fuel requirements for a flight?

Thanks,

Actualy you know what i think i can get this from memory, go to your COM pannel, and at the right of the FMC in the center it has your sqawk code thats origionaly set at 1200, well above that has a switch that says above at the top, N in the center and Below at the bottom, set that at above for your climb or what not and it will show planes above you and their altitude. Next go to the switch to the right of that and make sure the switch goes up i cant remember what exactly it says but do it anyways haha, then below those two switches it has the knob pointed at standby test or something like that, switch it all the way to the right till it says TARA or something like that. Then go to your 2d pannel or VC and above the ARPT button to the left of your FD switch it will show you a knob that says TFC, click that and it then should display the traffic around you that is in the air and if you get too close to a aircraft it will tell you to climb or descend with the automated voice, also it will say traffic and brings you to the attention of where the airplane is in comparison to your A/C. I hope i remember it right and tell me if it works. I remember you can do that with all 737s they have as well as the 744 and 744F. Hope this helps!

Oh and yea the above, n, and below are to display aircraft above you, infront of you i believe, and then below is the aircraft below you, the above and below display infront of you as well so dont worry it will remind you.
