PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    PMDG 777 Engine Type

    I am curious what kind of engines are the PMDG 777-200LR and 300ER engines.

    Hi,

    both have their respective version of the GE90 engine installed, the only engine available for the aircraft types in question.

    I can't tell you exactly which GE90 subversion they have though if that was your question. I'm sure someone else will chime in with this information.

      GE90-110B1 for the -200LR and GE90-115B for the -300ER Hope we'll get the different versions for the -200ER though.

        Hi,

        The -300ER has the GE95-115B, the -200LR and the -200LRF have the -110B1. The number after the "-" means how many thousands of lbs of thrust the respective engine have. In reality the -200LRF is offered with all 3 engine power options (110/113/115) depending on the costumer requirements.

              Does it? I knew of the 110 and the 115, never heard of the 113.

                I had thought the "- #" referred to the diameter of the fan in inches.? I could be wrong...

                  Negative. The fan diameter on the GE90 for the 777-200LR, -200LRF, and -300ER is 128 inches in diameter.

                    FWIW, Wiki does have the -113 referenced. Can't find anything about one having been fitted to an aircraft though. Used in GT power stations perhaps? Not that I think you'd need anything that fancy, since they're only really after rpms to drive the generator, not thrust.

                      Not RPMs but torque. It is torque that turns the generator/alternator and there are always gears between the gas generator and the electrical.

                    it's basically a derate of the -115 through the use of a different thrust plug, mostly superseded by the -115 with no known operators right now.

                      Personally we only use the 110s and 115s but it is an option...not sure if anyone uses them.

                        Actually they all are in a way de rated engines as the original factory tested GE90 could produce quiet a bit more thrust

                          The 777F is very close to a LR, uses the -110. Massive engines. My check airman told me that the thrust required on the 777 to get it to start rolling for taxi is close to the takeoff thrust of a 737.

                            The -200LR/F can also be optioned with the -115B rating.

                            -115B rating optioned:

                            -200LRF:Qatar Airways Cargo, EVA Air Cargo, Ethiopian
                            -200LR: Qatar Airways, Ethiopian, Crystal Luxury Air (former Air Austral), Iraqi Airways (former Air Austral, not taken up).
