Loads the fuel and payload weights from SimBrief
- Asobo 787-10
- Asobo 747-8 (SimBrief Profile*)
- Kuro 787-8
- Asobo ATR-42-600 (SimBrief Profile*)
- Asobo ATR-72-600
After clicking on the widget, it will load the flight plan from Simbrief and display a Load Preview. Verify that the correct flight plan is loaded, and click on Load Plane to load the fuel and payload onto the plane. If the aircraft or airport do not match the flight plan, it will show yellow warning(s) just above the Load Plane button.
A loadsheet will be displayed if the aircraft is loaded successfully. The weights shown in the loadsheet are read back from the aircraft weights for verification.
This widget will automatically use the weight units (lbs or kgs) from the SimBrief flight plan.
Set your SimBrief username or ID in the settings.
747-8 Fuel Loading Sequence (version 2.4):
- Main tanks (all 4 tanks loaded evenly until tanks 1 and 4 are full)
- Center tank
- Reserve tanks 1 and 4
- Stabilizer tank
For more info about the 747-8 fuel system, please see the Boeing 747-8i Manual.
* I have created the linked SimBrief profiles in order for the ZFW and GW to match (the empty weight does not match on the default profiles).
There may be some slight variations of a few pounds in the weights, but it should be pretty close.
NOTAM: Do not use the MSFS weights screen with this widget! The payload weights will not match what this widget has loaded onto the aircraft, and making any changes there will mess up the load.
To check the version number, hover over the widget and it can be seen in the center circle (version 1.4 or higher). If the verision number does not match (or is not there), then try removing the widget from the wheel and adding it back.
Version 2 NOTAM: Version 2 does not replace version 1.x. You will need to add version 2 of this widget to your flow wheel separately. You may choose to keep or remove version 1.x. Version 1.6 remains available for download for now.
Note: Flow Pro is required to use this addon.
