Hello dear QW Team,

I am having a blast on this product and I can really say that every minute of waiting was worth it! Still a few bugs to fix but it's only one week after release so it's to be expected I guess LOL

I haven't encountered this question yet so here it is:

Any plans on having an option to "refuel" the plane on a turnaround or is it down to technical boundaries? I love flying this thing but I also love doing turnarounds and it has gotten to me a bit that I am not able to refuel the plane after one flight. GSX would do it I guess but I haven't got it yet and I guess many people still haven't got GSX + I heard that it doesn't always work flawlessly.

As always keep up the amazing work!

You can easily refuel by putting in the value you want into the Fuel section on the PERF INIT page in the FMC

Did you check to see if the fuel reflected in the Sim and not just in the FMS. You could just be making a manual entry into the FMS and that will reflect on the EICAS. But make sure it’s also setting that fuel entry into Fuel and Payload screen of the sim. Just thought I’d bring that up since it wasn’t mentioned. Both locations need to reflect the fuel change.

I honestly have no idea if it was actually set. My calculated performance (LNAV/VNAV/speeds) worked out so I guess it worked, the 787 would probably not climb to FL410 with 50t more than needed right? And it would probably recommend something like FL360, wich it usually did, when I forgot to set fuel/payload before entering the route and going to the VNAV page.

To clarify -
Can you, or can't you, load fuel and pax/cargo using the CDU/FMS?
