She looks great, (N-737ER)

I have done a few flights all ready. The bird handles as she should from what I can tell. Climbs like a rocket,
Here is a profile of a flight I did from KLVK-PHNL, I was able to take her to FL350 at 2100fpm from LVK's 6k runway with out a step climb. Cruise was .80 at FL380. The flight was about 2000 miles and after I taxied off the runway there was only 8000lbs (10%) of fuel left. So the range is way off from the 5800 miles it should be.

I'll run some more tests later.

I know a guy who's an FO on a private BBJ. I should let him try this guy out and see what he thinks Big grin

Nice plane, very nice. Are there any good 738/73NG panels out there?

She's real nice. I don't mean to nitpick,but on the silver one,N889NC,when the interior lights are on,there is aring around the fuselage behind the wingsd that lights up around the whole plane. Also,aren't the lights supposed to be on top of the winglets ?
I just flew it COS-ASE. I challenge all FS'ers to try ASE. Very tough.

I'm very impressed with the BBJ. I've got some cool airplanes, but this one is the best I have. My only complaint is the ring that United Fan mentioned. Other than that, it's great. I'm having a little trouble getting the right Vref down, because all the info is in kg, but I'll work with it a bit and see what I can come up with. I'm thinking that I'm just going to go into the text file with the reference stuff on it, convert the kg to pounds, and resave it.

Finally a good BBJ and a good NG panel. I've been waiting for those for a while.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I find the range isn't near to the actual range of the BBJ, I tried flying DUS-EWR (a LH flight operated by a Privatair BBJ) and I ran out of fuel long before reaching my destination, even though I started with 100% fuel to try the range out. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
