I have found TOPCAT to produce fairly accurate numbers. When we get PFPX as well, we should be spot-on.

I'd love to fine-tune 744 to match your results.

Could you help me make a test flight for calibration?

Hi Michal, my apology for not replying so long ,not much time for flying latelly . I would like to help you ,but I think I am not the right one as I dont fly PMDG 747 400 that much any more . I am sure you need more data to come with something which will be reasonably accurate . The only data I can supply you if any help is from fSFK from past flying but then again I did use before ASE2012 and now Opus so there will be weather effects seen . Let me know if that help Cheers Petr

I definitely need a new flight. I cannot rely on past data, because I do not know the weather at the time of flight.

I am happy to fly a test between agreed airports on an agreed date/time, if you wish. I am available between 1000z and 2000z some week days.
