Ability to type in aircraft load

Hello community,
What I’m suggesting is a way where you could type in how much fuel, cargo or passengers you want. I don’t know if anyone else has this problem but sometimes it can be quite hard to put in the exact number of fuel or cargo you want that was generated from FPLtoIF. This is less of a problem because it’s a lot easier to put in the amount of passengers you want, but with heavies it can sometimes be hard to even get in a 100 kg range of how much fuel or cargo you want. I don’t know if anyone else has a problem with this. It’s quite a small thing but it should be very easy to add. I know it literally makes no difference but I can’t remember the last time I managed to get the exact load that I wanted. Or maybe I’m the only one who is bothered by this


There is plenty of room for a bar to go in the top left-hand corner


Let me know what you think

Interesting, I would vote but… You know… I don’t have any left…

It would come in handy if need to type in an exact value, however 100 kg difference of payload/fuel doesn’t make that big of a difference and your flight isn’t going to change if you lost 200 kg of fuel for example.

Was searching for this request, and I think that even though it may seem simple, this would make preflight planning much easier!

Thanks for making this request, I’ll free up a vote for this one.

I’m going to vote for this. The slider bar is a bit annoying and having a keypad to enter the values in would be a lot easier.

I have also voted for this. I believe it would make pre-flight planning much more accurate and easy!

Have voted. So simple, but will make life so much easier. Having the exact fuel, pax and cargo is esential when fliying long haul in a group flight to help maintain precise separation.

Actually the group flight issue has nothing to do with this. It is actually because when you set autopilot to .80 it’s actually setting it to the exact current mach speed, which is anywhere between .795-.805. And changing the AP just adds or subtracts .01 so that doesn’t help either.

It’s not? In a heavy 100kg is less than 1 minute at low level flight which is beyond the level of precision needed for planning…

I love it! Very simple, useful and seemingly easy to implement. You have my vote :)
